If you're looking for a wedding venue that combines modern industrial ambiance with the romantic and historical charm of a castle-like estate, Iron Manor is the perfect option. This one-of-a-kind property offers a gorgeous setting with true character and is ideal for couples who want to tie the knot in a wedding venue that stands out from the rest.
Customizable Spaces to Suit Your Needs
Iron Manor, based in Montgomery, TX and just north of Houston, has customizable spaces that provide a total of 17,000 square feet. The venue can accommodate up to 350 guests for a seated event and up to 400 standing for cocktails indoors, with an additional 250 guests for an outdoor cocktail hour. The property features a bridal suite, ceremony and reception spaces, making it easy to host your entire day in one location.
There's a lot to love about this Houston wedding venue, but my favorite feature has to be the massive, floor to ceiling wooden doors that split the ceremony and reception hall. The doors open to reveal the bride before she walks down the isle and it is one of the most GRAND entrances I've ever seen.
Luxury Amenities for the Bridal Party
The bridal suite at Iron Manor is simply stunning. The bride and her wedding party can prepare for the big day in a lavish suite complete with plush sofas, salon chairs, and a quartz makeup counter. The Bride's Changing and Reveal Room is a private glass conservatory flooded with natural light and featuring a crystal chandelier, offering a stunning backdrop for some magnificent photos. A massive, remote controlled curtain is perfect for a first look reveal of the bride in her wedding dress!
Meanwhile, the groom and his party can enjoy their own space in the Groom's Room, which comes equipped with a poker table, arcade game, gaming consoles, TV, and a private bathroom. The bride and groom suites are tucked away on opposite sides of the venue, leaving plenty of space for the couple to roam freely without seeing one another.
Unique Features You Won't Find Anywhere Else
One of the standout features of Iron Manor is the 50-foot, eight-ton overhead crane that spans the width of the building. This crane is used to move a display of beautiful crystal chandeliers within Crane Hall, a stunning event space that still retains the original Carnegie Steel beams from the original 1903 building. The space features exposed herringbone brick walls, 20-foot ceilings, and massive overhead beams, creating a breathtaking backdrop for your event. And if you venture outside, you'll find gorgeous English-style gardens, fountains, and courtyards that offer even more photo opportunities.
Iron Manor charges a rental fee of $7,900 and up, which includes the use of the venue for a day, table and chair rental for up to 350 wedding guests, and access to the bridal suite and groom's room. They also offer semi-inclusive packages such as bar and meal service! I’ve had their food many times and it’s pretty dang delicious.
In conclusion, Iron Manor is a unique and luxurious wedding venue that will blow your guests away. With customizable spaces, luxury amenities for the bridal party, and insanely unique features you won't find anywhere else, this is the perfect venue for couples who want to create a truly one-of-a-kind wedding experience. From a wedding photographer’s experience, this venue is definitely one of the most photogenic locations in Houston and Montgomery.
