Since 1999 Oakwind Bed and Breakfast has been recognized as one of the premier venues on the Gulf Coast for weddings, rehearsal dinners, and receptions. Situated on twenty beautiful acres just south of Houston, this six thousand square foot estate is lushly landscaped with 200-year-old oak trees shading an enchanting gazebo, pergola, and verandah.

There are not enough stars to rate Ann, her team and Oakwind! Before seeing Ann's booth at the Bridal Extravaganza my husband and I were about to book somewhere else. However, Oakwind had the price point and amenities that we were looking for. For our wedding, we wanted to do many things that were unique. Ann was accommodating with those requests and helped out. From helping other vendor troubles to last minute mishaps, the Oakwind Team helped make our wedding enjoyable, memorable and worry-free, through rain showers and strong wind storms. Ann you are an amazing wedding and event coordinator!

I cannot begin to describe how wonderful my wedding day was at Oakwind. Ann, the onsite wedding coordinator, is amazing and makes the entire wedding process smooth and worry free. There were days that I texted her mid day and she would respond immediately. I never had to worry about "what ifs" because Ann always had a backup plan!

The night before the wedding myself and my bridesmaids stayed on site. We had the entire house to ourselves and felt right at home with all the amenities. Saturday morning we woke to a yummy breakfast catered by the chef then we started onsite hair and makeup. Ann checked on us frequently and catered to our every need.

As one of my bridesmaids was dressing her dress ripped down the zipper and it would not zip. What does a bride typically do at this point? Freak out, right?! Not me, Ann rushed in with one of her staff members and they literally sewed my dear friend into her dress, that was the only option at that point. Once the dress was sewed you could not even tell it had ripped. Like I have said, Ann always had a backup plan!

All in all, we had an amazing evening. We received many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue. We couldn't be more happy with our choice.

Thank you Ann and Oakwind staff for making our wedding day so memorable.

Oakwind was the perfect venue for my daughters wedding. Ann and her staff were amazing! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I didn't have to worry about anything. The food was absolutely delicious! Every guest bragged about how beautiful everything was. I was told more than once that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been too. I highly recommend Oakwind! Thanks again Ann!

We recently had our wedding here and it could only be described as "perfect." The location is secluded and romantic, the house is well-kept, the grounds offer many dynamic choices for ceremony, receptive, and even rehearsal dinner, the food was great, the staff was fantastic, and after comparing with friends' weddings we found that the all-inclusive package was actually a great bargain! All of that being said, Oakwind ' secret weapon is their manager/coordinator Ann. No wedding goes without hiccups, but Ann is so knowledgeable and so smart no one could have even guessed that we had 2 separate flower crises the week of the wedding! Bridesmaid lost her fake nail as we were lining up for the processional; Ann had superglue. Flower girl started panicking before she had to walk out; Ann calmed her down and gave her a pep talk. I didn't even know about these until after the wedding! She's just that good.

I can't stop raving about Oakwind and how wonderful the staff was. I was so impressed with how well they were able to accommodate our personal dietary needs (my husband and I have food sensitivities) so we could enjoy our special day. Ann and her staff went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we had the most memorable wedding day ever. I barely had any legitimate reason to stress over wedding details because the staff was already one step ahead of me. Future brides, you won't find service like this anywhere else!! Thank you Ann, Heather, and the wonderful staff of Oakwind!!
