I am SO very glad I chose Rockefeller Hall as my wedding venue. It is absolutely beautiful. The ladies at Rock Hall went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for my wedding. They also connected me with the best vendors around. The day of the wedding was absolutely flawless.

My experience with Rockefeller Hall and Lisa, the owner, was incredibly positive. I planned most of my wedding from out-of-state, and Lisa was always willing to communicate via e-mail and schedule me time whenever I could come in to town. It's a wonderful place for a fun combined ceremony/reception; Lisa and her staff run the flip so smoothly, it is like magic. I had quality valet service, on-site police, 2 beautiful bars with very friendly staff, and no hidden problems or surprises. Her in-house caterer has wonderful food and is also very accommodating for special requests. Booking here is like getting all the best parts about a wedding planner and venue all in one. Lisa and her staff run everything day-of beautifully, and leading up to the wedding Lisa provides great recommendations and input for anything you need while also allowing you to create the day you envision without any pushy advice. I worked with Lisa's florist as well, and my flowers (with the tons of candles in different holders she provides free) were both affordable and stunning. For those of you considering a summer wedding like me, the AC here works great even through the July heat. My only comment is that Lisa could really use an intern just for her own sake! Sometimes things were a little hectic or slightly (only a couple days) behind schedule, but Lisa always put me first and I never worried that something wouldn't get done. In the 10 or so days leading up to my wedding, every e-mail was answered very promptly (some literally within minutes!) and her attention to detail and the smooth and thorough rehearsal made everything run beautifully day-of. Overall, having my ceremony and reception at Rockefeller Hall was the best wedding decision I made (besides the groom of course!). Lisa is both a wonderful planner and person, and she and her staff did an amazing job bringing my cloudy vision to a stunning reality while keeping the stress levels and confusion low for me and my family.

We couldn't have been happier with the great service, care, friendliness and attention to detail that everyone at Rockefeller Hall showed us in the months leading up to our daughter's wedding, as well as during the wedding itself. We never had to worry about a thing and instead could sit back and enjoy the celebration.

Even though I was an out-of-state mother-of-the-bride, the staff at Rockefeller Hall always kept me "in the loop" and made sure I had prompt answers to any questions that arose. They gave terrific input in helping to find other wedding vendors too.

Place cards, favors, serving pieces, etc. were dropped off the week before the wedding and the staff made sure everything was in place that day. It was exactly as we had pictured. The venue itself is lovely and unique; it's especially beautiful at night with all of the candles lit.

If we had any more daughters to marry off, we would INSIST that they come to Houston and use Rockefeller Hall!

Dear Lisa Porter and Deborah Rizzo – Owners of Rockefeller Hall,\r\n\r\nMaria, and I, reflected back at our first meetings with you to commit to having the wedding reception for our daughter, Diana, and our son-in-law, Tim, at Rockefeller Hall. That was nearly one year ago. In our lives together we have made many decisions, but, there has not been one more important than where we should celebrate our daughter’s wedding to her husband. I am so glad we chose your place. \r\n\r\nYou have been wonderful to deal with. Your professionalism, your extreme courtesy and graciousness and your total devotion to your customer is overwhelming. All during the planning and preparation process, you provided us with regular contact and excellent guideposts and suggestions so that we could make informed decisions surrounding all the things that are essential for a well-organized and festive celebration. You gave us a tremendous amount of “peace of mind.” For parents of the bride, this was a great source of reassurance.\r\n\r\nThe execution was simply AWESOME. Everything came together in a rich symphony of success. I measured this by the expressions of happiness on everyone’s face. The service was impeccable. The food was delectable and the décor and flowers were elegant. Everything exceeded our expectations.\r\n\r\nI wish I could tell parents everywhere that if they are truly looking for a place that can deliver on its promises and can execute flawlessly, that they can save a lot of time by choosing Rockefeller Hall to be the center of their celebration. Thank you for making us feel that Diana and Tim’s wedding reception was the most important event at Rockefeller Hall. You both are absolutely remarkable people.\r\n\r\nCiao,\r\nRocco and Maria \r\n

Our daughter's reception was at Rockefeller's January 12,2013 and we had a wonderful experience. Lisa and Deborah took my daughter's vision for the reception and made it into a reality.

The staff was well organized, very attentive and provided impeccable service. The flowers and venue were gorgeous and the food was delicious. It was a magical night for all of us.

We relied on Lisa and Deborah as coordinators for the event and they are very knowledgable and professional. We had a terrific time at each planning meeting and they helped make the whole process a wonderful memory.

We highly encourage everyone to book Rockefeller's for their wedding or any important event. They are the best!

These ladies are the best!!! The first time we walked through the doors at Rockefeller Hall we knew we had to be married there. We had decided to have our ceremony and reception at the same place. Lisa and Cindy did such a great job preparing all of us for our big day. Everything went off without a hitch and it was a great success. They have so much knowledge in the wedding planning area that their expertise was appreciated by us. Any time in the future that we need to have a venue for any kind of function I will definitely be calling them.

As the mother of the bride, I wanted the evening to be just perfect for my daughter and her husband and it was! Lisa, Deborah and all the staff at Rockefeller Hall were amazing. The venue is beautiful, historic, and makes an excellent place to hold an event. The flowers were so unique and the colors were exactly what we had wanted. The day went so smoothly, and everyone just went above and beyond to create a romantic and yet fun enviromnent for our guests. They were still raving about the delicious food days afterward. The entire planning process went well, as each meeting, phone call and email was treated with respect and as if we were the most important item of the day! Can't say enough, would highly recommend!

PERFECT. What more can I say? I'm a pretty laid back person so I knew I'd be pleased just from looking at their prior events pictures, but they far exceeded my expectations. I had the most beautiful wedding day. It was like a dream. The food was delicious, drinks were strong, the service was impeccable, the flowers were gorgeous. MOST of my guests commented about how I had the best wedding they'd ever been at. It was elegant and classy yet FUN. The staff smiles and was genuinely happy and helpful. I'm not sure how they make sure EVERYONE is happy, but they do. It was a blessing that my my wedding reception took place at Rockefeller. It was the happiest day of my life and a lot of it was due to them. There was NOT ONE hiccup and I attribute it to Lisa (and the other lady - I'm drawing a blank on her name). You'll be quite pleased if you choose to have your wedding reception here.
