Today's couples want a wedding venue that has it all: a storybook setting, awesome amenities, plenty of room for their guests, and a team that can work magic. Luckily, they'll find it at South Shore Harbour Resort & Conference Center, just 30 minutes south of Houston on the shimmering shores of Clear Lake.
The list of pros will make any bride or groom's heart sing: 25,000 square feet of event space, 230 spacious guest rooms, indoor and outdoor venue options, full onsite catering, onsite transportation, room blocks for out-of-town guests, a fitness center and spa nearby, and even party boats available for rent. All you need to do is walk down the aisle.
"We had the best experience planning our wedding reception at South Shore Harbor Resort," says bride Lisa O'Brien. "The deciding factor for us was the beauty of the resort and surrounding areas. We could tell the staff was accommodating and friendly, and the atmosphere was perfect for a celebratory day."
South Shore Harbour Resort's dedicated wedding team can point you to the best local vendors for your cake, photography, decorations, floral arrangements, and entertainment, while the executive chef and culinary team can prepare a delicious, customized menu that reflects your personal style, tastes, and theme, be it an elegant sit-down dinner, buffet, brunch, or cocktail party.
"The South Shore staff was wonderful in ensuring a stress-free planning experience, and was sure to give attention to every detail," says O'Brien. "We had a complimentary tasting of multiple entrees and even our signature cocktails to make sure they were perfect. On our wedding day, the staff was incredibly friendly and made sure we had everything we needed."
For the big day, couples can choose between the Crystal Ballroom and the Marina Plaza Ballroom. With its grand crystal chandelier, the first is ideal for larger parties (up to 500 guests) and is adaptable to most themes. The latter faces the waterfront and can comfortably seat 230 friends and family. You can also set up an intimate ceremony or celebration by the pool.
"I would 100 percent recommend South Shore Resort to anyone planning a wedding," says O'Brien. "It was a perfect fit for us."
