Northeast of Houston, in the little town of Hockley, Texas, lies one of the prettiest chapel venues in the entire state. The height of romance, Houston Oaks is a country club and event venue that has its very own 15th century chapel.

Plus, the chapel is set up in a stone courtyard overlooking Houston Oaks’ private lake. It doesn’t get any better than this!
