What Others Have to Say.
I want to thank you for making our special day so wonderful. Everything was
Perfect—the food, the decorations, the wait staff, the bartenders—every
detail was taken care of. You did a GREAT job!!!! Oh, John and Tiffany loved the
food you sent to the hotel (what a thoughtful thing to do).You are so good at what you do and you make people happy while you are doing it. You are the best!
Brant and I wanted to thank you for everything that you did for our wedding. The reception was truly amazing. There was not one bad thing that I could say about the entire evening. All of my guests loved the food. I wish I could say the same but my stomach was in such knots from nerves that I did not eat anything! I was so happy with the placement of the bars, food and cakes. Your staff was very efficient and professional.
Brant and I had a wonderful time!
We would like to thank the staff at the Courtyard that was working the night of our wedding. Numerous compliments have been received on the wonderful service they provided. Their attention to detail and making sure our guests were comfortable is very much appreciated and was noted by many of our guests.
The venue looked perfect and was exactly what we dreamed of for our wedding day. The elegant yet cozy atmosphere provided the environment that allowed us to feel that we were able to attend to each one of our guests. Everyone was very impressed with how wonderful everything turned out.
Once again we are so thankful that we were blessed to have our wedding at such a wonderful venue and that we had the opportunity to work with you as our coordinator. We are left with countless wonderful memories.
God bless you always,
– Paul and Jessica
We were very pleased with our experience and have had rave reviews from all who shared it with us.
– Emily and Philip
I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful reception. Everyone thought the ballroom was beautiful and I was told many times that the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding. I would definitely agree. That staff was great as was the service.
Now that things have settled down from the hurricane and the wedding, I wanted to take the time to thank you for all you did to make Heather and Daniel's wedding a great time!
Everything was so beautiful and the entire evening flowed so smoothly and we owe that to you and your great team. We received compliments about every aspect of the night, from how beautiful the facility was to the great service the staff provided and the delicious food!
Jim and I would like to thank you for making Chris and Tracy's rehearsal dinner so special. Your warmth, graciousness and professionalism is deeply appreciated. The food, décor and staff are to be complimented.
Again, we thank you.
– Jim and Karen
I have finally had a chance to get unpacked from the honeymoon and settled into "real life." I had a fabulous, enchanted wedding and I want to say thank you for making it easy.
I had the BEST time. Everything was perfect and beyond my expectations. I see why you all are a Knot pick and I am glad I picked your company as my venue. We really had a wonderful time and our guests were pleased with everything. A majority of our guests had no idea the wedding was outdoors, so they got a little surprise!
Liz and Chris live in San Diego so there were unique needs in the planning of their wedding. At my first meeting with Christiana, I as very impressed by her professional, courteous and helpful attitude. Chris and all your staff made our daughter's wedding a wonderful and trouble-free experience. Everything went perfectly and I thank your staff for making me look really good and creating a day filled with happy memories.
I can't tell you how many people called us and wrote us about Lexie and Aaron's beautiful wedding. Everything turned out so perfect and we were so pleased! You were so wonderful to work with and made it so pleasant and easy for us.
First, thank you so much for making my wedding so wonderful. My husband couldn't stop telling me how wonderful everything was, and believe me, that is not an easy feat. You will be my choice for future events and for referrals. My friends and family are ranting and raving about the Courtyard on St. James; hopefully that will translate into more business for you. I will definitely share pictures with you.
Again, thank you.
I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for the wonderful work you did for Bry and Fen's reception. It was truly perfect—the atmosphere, the food, the service, all of it! I imagine that it can be quite stressful making sure everything runs smoothly on such an important occasion. You and the rest of the Courtyard staff did everything right to make this day remarkable, and for that we are truly thankful. Everyone we've talked to had a great time and complimented every aspect of the reception. Thank you for all your hard work and for your compassion. We will definitely use Courtyard for future events!
We just wanted to thank you so very much for our special night. It was better than we ever imagined. Everything turned out so beautiful and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to help us with our big night than you. You were wonderful and helped me keep calm and I never once got stressed out or became a bridezilla. It was everything we wished for. We had so many compliments and every one of our guests loved the Courtyard! Thanks again so very much from both Dustin and me. We will come by and share pictures with you.
I cannot even begin to thank you for everything you did for Jessica and Tyson's wedding. The countless questions and hundreds of emails…I could not have done it without you! Thank you so much for all your help, especially in the problem-solving area!
Again, thank you again for everything. I absolutely loved the opportunity to work with you.
– Pruett and Karen
You were such a joy to work with on Heather and Scott's wedding Dec. 29. Thank you for your efforts in making the evening a special one. We have heard from several people on how good the food was and that it was such a great place. I still can't believe we actually had an outdoor ceremony in December.
I really hope to work with you again in the future. The Wine Cellar is calling me for a special evening sometime. I just have to figure out the event (maybe their first anniversary).
Thank you for helping to make our wedding the simple, elegant and classy event we had hoped for and will remember forever.
The reception setup was gorgeous—everything looked beautiful. We received many compliments about the facility. It had a homey feel, the food was the best "wedding food" some of our guests have ever had. And many people told us our wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to!
You were a joy to work with—catered to nearly every request we made, arrived early to make sure everything was set up according to plan, and responsiveness to our e-mails as we were planning our wedding out-of-state made the planning process easy-going and smooth. Thank you for everything. Best of luck with your own wedding!
We would like to thank you for all of your help in planning Tara and Erik's wedding, and for your expert guidance, help, and support the day of the wedding. You are a true professional. We thought everything was just perfect! All of your staff/attendants were courteous and went above and beyond to provide everyone with excellent service. Please pass on our thanks and gratitude to your staff; we would highly recommend The Courtyard to anyone!
– Ernest and Barbara
Bri and I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did on our wedding reception. We really enjoyed working with you and appreciate how easy you made everything. The reception was more fun than we could have ever imagined and we know it way your hard work and attention to detail that made things flow so smoothly.
We got countless compliments on everything from the food to the layout to the venue itself. We wish you the best of luck and hope you know the impact you had on our special day.
Thank you for all you did to make our day a success! We could never have pulled it off without you. All your advice and efforts made it an experience we will never forget.
Thank you again!
All our best,
– Dan and Heather
Sal and I would like to "thank You" for all your help with our wedding. It was a beautiful experience that we will never forget and one that we will share with our family and friends for years to come. Our beautiful wedding would not have been a success if it wasn't for your professionalism and dedication. I wish you the best in everything that you do, and may you and your family live a very healthy and prosperous life.
I cannot tell you how excited we are about having our wedding at The Courtyard!! The whole experience we have had with you has really helped to erase our awful experience with Tuscany and move forward to our big day. I really cannot tell you how much we appreciate all you have done for us. I am so excited about our wedding again, even more excited than I was the first time around because I feel like the Courtyard is the perfect place, and you have really helped put our minds at ease with the whole experience. Please pass this email along to the owner, I want him to know how wonderful you are and how well you have treated us!!!!!
I wanted to drop you a line to tell you how much I enjoyed my wedding at The Courtyard on St. James. It was absolutely fabulous and surpassed all my expectations. Guests have raved about the food. Many have said it was the best food they have ever had at any event. My mom said the bar was the best bar she had ever seen at a wedding. Plus the ceremony and reception looked so gorgeous. I can't begin to tell you how impressed I was with everything.
We are at a loss for words to tell you how thankful we are for your help in making our wedding day so special. Thank you so much for taking care of everything. Our friends and family are raving on how beautiful our wedding was.
The day couldn't have gone any better! Everything was PERFECT! Thanks for everything! I will definitely pass on the good word.
Everything about your venue was perfect. We couldn't have chosen a better place for our wedding and reception. People are still raving about how awesome the food was! Thank you so much!!
WOW! Thanks so much for a great reception. I received so many compliments on the food and the efficiency of the service from the parking valet to the dining room and the cake service. Everything was beyond our expectations and plans and it was beautiful. Every detail was taken care of and we could truly "relax" and enjoy the moments.
The day my husband and I had lost all hope of finding the perfect place for him and me to be married we made an appointment to see The Courtyard on St. James Place. My new mother-in-law, sister-in-law, one of my best friends and my new husband drove to The Courtyard and were happy with the central location. As soon as we turned the corner and saw the beautiful garden setting, I was in love. The place was very nice and we fell in love with the Garden Room. It was small enough not to get lost in the place but big enough for all that we wanted to do.
Words are inadequate to express the gratitude in my heart for such a job well done for Jared and Kari's wedding. I wish you could hear the feedback I have been getting from those who were there. They were overwhelmed with the food, the setting, the wait staff, how well it was organized, how beautiful the tables and flowers were.
Our prayers for this wedding have been answered "exceedingly abundantly above all that we could ask or think" (Eph. 3:30). There was not one area that was not done with excellence. The rehearsal dinner was also wonderful—again the food was superb and the wait staff wonderfully attentive. Please tell whoever does the food and whoever trains the wait staff that they are the best I've ever seen (we attended a wedding at The Crescent in Dallas the week before and The Courtyard far surpassed it).
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for such wonderful memories at my wedding. Just recently, we were at a wedding and friends were still talking about our wedding reception—the service, the bar, the food—I could go on and on.
I'd be more than happy to recommend your facility to anyone. You can always use me as a reference for future clients. Thank you.
First of all…outstanding job!!!!! Everything was perfect, and we have you to thank for that. You made Christi and Matt's wedding a day they will never forget.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. The staff was excellent also. Several of our guests commented on the outstanding service and how impressed they were.
My husband and I would like to thank you for the coordinated efforts for our daughter's wedding. It was all PERFECT! The food was delicious and presented so artistically, the room was lovely, and the service was impeccable! Your attention to detail made her event truly memorable.
Thank you for helping to make her day so special. Please give our sincere compliments to your staff.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate everything you did to make the wedding a success. The facility was fabulous, the service above and beyond excellent and I don't know what we would have done without you.
Everyone raved about both the food and service and I am so happy we chose The Courtyard for our venue. I cannot think of a better place to have had their wedding. Please feel free to use me as a reference any time. Several of the guests will definitely use you guys for an event.
Thank you again!
Unbelievable service, value for money and quality of food and rentals. Absolutely recommend the Courtyard.
We had the most beautiful wedding on May 16 and our family and friends are still talking about it three weeks later! It was beyond what I expected. For our reception, we did a seated dinner, and it was really not as expensive as I thought it would be, and our guests were so impressed and loved the food. Some of our guests told us it was the best wedding food they had ever had! Also, the decor is classic...green ivy on the outside, crystal chandeliers upstairs. It's beautiful! I have no complaints!
From the moment we went to check the venue out we were in love with it!! We were so happy to have our wedding ceremony and reception at the Courtyard on St. James Place!! They were so nice to us and very helpful with everything! It is a great place for weddings because if you have your wedding there, they take care of the food, the tables, chairs, etc...you don't have to worry about finding certain vendors to rent equipment or anything. They even recommended vendors for things like cake, flowers, and transportation.
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!! I would HIGHLY recommend The Courtyard on St. James Place! Everyone is still talking about how delicious the food was and how amazing the night was.
I cannot recommend the Courtyard on St. James Place enough. My daughter's reception was perfect. The food was delicious, the ballroom is beautiful decorated, and the service deserves more than 5 stars.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Courtyard on St. James Place. Not only is it a beautiful venue (which photographs perfectly), but the entire staff is welcoming, professional, and inspiring. The food was spectacular. I had multiple friends say, "I never remember the food at weddings, but that food was great!" There were so many "extras" The Courtyard took care of, like bubble bowls for the flowers, setting out decorations and favors, an aisle runner, coordinating everything, etc.... I could go on forever, but instead I'll just say that this is the perfect venue for any wedding, from small like mine (55 people) to hundreds. Guests are impressed and comfortable.
My wedding was absolutely gorgeous at The Courtyard. It was just how I imagined it. Lori was very easy to work with and was so helpful. The food was amazing as well. We had so many compliments on venue. I wouldn't change a thing about the wedding.
Overall, St. James was the perfect venue for our wedding for 225 guests. Easily, it was the best choice we made during the wedding planning. We used the larger courtyard for our ceremony, and feared the 60% chance of rain on the wedding day, but the weather turned out, and the courtyard was exactly the atmosphere that we were looking for.
The reception space indoors is lovely, tastefully appointed and neutral, and melded so well with the decor we brought in. It looked amazing. Everything from the Courtyard fell into place on the day of perfectly thanks to the well-versed staff. They did such a good job running the show that we, as the bride and groom, literally felt stress-free during the wedding, which is quite a feat! Moreover, guests raved about our food and the bellinis. Highly recommend this venue.
The Courtyard on St. James was phenomenal. Every time my mom and I visited we feel more in love with the place.
The Courtyard on St. James Place was wonderful. We have received many compliments on how perfect our wedding was. The venue provided the atmosphere we were looking for and the professionalism of the staff was notice by a number of our guests. They made it very welcoming for everyone who attended.
This place was amazing! Beautiful and catered to our every desire. When our DJ bailed 45 minutes before the ceremony started, our coordinators (employed by the facility) had someone on their way by the time we began the ceremony. They were FABULOUS and I could not have asked for a better ceremony and reception site. It would not have been my dream wedding without this place.
Thank you for putting together such a wonderful evening for our rehearsal dinner. It was so special for Stephen and Natalie and both their families. It felt cozy and warm and intimate. You made sure that the serape colors worked with our centerpieces, and I thought the tables were beautiful. I mentioned in the email I sent earlier how many compliments we received about the Courtyard and the delicious menu. Natalie's family is long time, several generation Houstonians. Many of the attendees were attorneys, and a couple of judges, and business people in their town. My hope is that they may call you in the future. Terry works in Houston quite often and said he will certainly plan this next business diner with you…just don't know exactly when that will be. He loves your cellar! Thank you again for everything. Working with you has been a pleasure. You are just the best!
