Best Place for a Wedding Houston 2002 - La Colombe d'Or
Humble Oil founder W.W. Fondren never imagined his 1923 home would become one of the finest little luxury hotels in the world. But hey, this is Houston; we could have torn it down. Luckily, Steve Zimmerman not only retained the mansion's elegance but also added the 8,000-square-foot Grand Salon de la Comtesse. Plight your troth beneath circa-1730 carved panels that once graced the greatest hall in Europe. With excellent modern French cuisine and Old World service, you'll feel like you're marrying royalty. Whether amorous or just tipsy, wedding couples don't have far to go to reach the honeymoon suite. Six rooms just up the stairs house antiques, private dining rooms, marble bathrooms and king-sized beds.
