  • The first issue was that a staff member had made a commitment about an adjacent property, and then a few days before the wedding, the owner backed out of this commitment. The commitment was that we would be able to have a rehearsal dinner at an adjacent property where the bridesmaids were staying. But a few days before the wedding, the owner found out about this plan, and said this would not be allowed, even though it was his employee who had approved this. Three days before the wedding, we were scrambling to find an alternate location, which was hard since most of the family came from out of town. Another big issue was regarding how they addressed food restrictions. They were supposed to plate food in the kitchen for those with food restrictions. But when meal time came, they did not do that. When I asked about my son's meal, they just said which items to avoid for gluten intolerance. They demonstrated a complete lack of understanding regarding cross contamination and the dange...

  • Shirley Acres is a breath taking property. From the drive up to the actual tour, my fiance and I absolutely loved everything they had to offer. Bob was very nice and was excellent in answering every question I had. The staff was very attentive and the open house was to die for! Anyone would be lucky to have their wedding in such a beautiful place!

  • I would definitely recommend the venue and their wonderful staff! Bob and the staff here are always smiling when you see them and friendly on the phone. They have answered all of questions and pretty much done whatever they can to ease the stress of wedding planning. My fiance and I are still in awe every time we walk into the pavillion.

  • Aaliya and I had our reception at Shirley Acres in November 2019 – Sorry for the delayed post, Bob. We looked at 15-20 venues around Houston before going to Shirley Acres. The moment we stepped onto the property, we fell in love with it. It had the perfect natural beauty with a rustic, Texan feel. Bob and his team were really great hosts and extremely helpful every step of the way. The wedding/reception packages are very reasonably prices, and worth every penny. They cover all your needs, plus a little more. The floral decoration and setup was absolutely stunning. It was perfection – right from the arrangement of the tables to each flower petal. Almost every single one of our 300 guests was in awe of the ambiance and the beauty of Shirley Acres. The personal attention and care provided by Bob and his team was extremely gratifying – they go above and beyond to make sure you are at ease. People say you can’t really enjoy your wedding day and it goes by so fast. We agr... Read more

  • I got married here on October 5th, 2019. We had the ceremony in the outdoor courtyard and the reception was in the Garden Room. Both locations were beautiful backdrops for our special day. I live out of state so it was very important for us to find a venue that provided most of the services in house so we did not have to search for a ton of different vendors. We were so thankful to find Shirley Acres. We used their florist, day-of coordinator, cake, and catering services which made wedding planning much less stressful. Jim the florist did an amazing job on the bouquets and floral centerpieces. I absolutely loved my bouquet, and it turned out better than I had envisioned. We got so many compliments from guests on how tasty the food was from the in-house catering team. (We chose the chicken, salmon, vegetables, and mashed potatoes) I loved how our semi-naked cake turned out, and the raspberry and almond cream fillings were delicious! Charity was our wedding planner and was so helpful thr... Read more

  • We had our wedding here on July 19, 2019, and it was FABULOUS! We had our ceremony and reception in the Garden Room, and it was beautiful! Everything turned out amazing, from the flowers to the food to the DJ and event coordinator (Charity), it was all incredible! The grounds are gorgeous for pictures, the staff was all friendly. We also rented the Guesthouse on property for our Bridal Party for the night before and of the wedding, and it made everything so convenient, plus the Guesthouse was awesome! Mr. Bob Shirley was great to work with too! We had so many compliments from so many guests. We highly recommend this venue!!!!

  • When my husband and I began the search for our wedding venue, we were looking for a place that would be able to take care of everything and we definitely found that in Shirley Acres. Since the beginning of our process they were very helpful in answering all of our questions we had, as well as being so accommodating for our big day. From the food (we had people with food allergies and they made sure everyone was taken care of), to the flowers, to the drinks Shirley Acres took care of it all and we could not have been happier! Our day of coordinator, Charity, was so amazing! She took care of things that I would not have even thought of, and made sure everything ran smoothly for our big day. Having a day of coordinator was definitely a large reason why we ended up choosing Shirley Acres, as was the on site florist, Jim. He did such a wonderful job and really brought my ideas to life. There are so many wonderful things about this venue, but I think the thing that puts them over the edge is... Read more

  • From the moment we walked into Shirley Acres we knew we had found the one. From the plush green landscape to the beautiful florals and foliage - it was the kind of picturesque venue we had always imagined for our wedding. Shirley Acres did not disappoint - the staff were amazing especially Charity who co-ordinated our wedding. Charity was heaven sent and I must say that anybody who has her as a co-ordinator should thank God! The food and service was excellent and they are such a flexible venue. Everything went extremely well! Thanks Shirley Acres and Charity for making my big day so special.

  • The team at Shirley Acres could not have made our day more perfect! Being indecisive, I gave them the ideas of what I liked and told them to make it pretty. They outdid all of my expectations! I received so many compliments on the food, decor, cake and flowers! Jennifer was our day of coordinator and she made the whole day stress free!! She made sure the wedding ran so smoothly and made sure we were taken care of! I couldn't have picked a more perfect venue!

  • Our wedding at Shirley Acres was fabulous! Kelley was our wedding coordinator and from start to finish did an excellent job keeping the event running smoothly and ensuring we were able to fully experience our special day. We live out of town and planned the wedding generally from afar. Shirley Acres inclusive package was perfect— the flowers prepared by Jim were beautiful, the cake was delicious and pretty, the DJ was awesome, the bridal suite was perfect for me and 9 girls to get ready! We chose the BBQ dinner and all our guests raved about the dinner rolls for days :) If we were to go back and start over we would definitely pick Shirley Acres again, thank you!!

  • Not impressed! I have done events with them in past and not had these issues. I was considering using them for the location of my daughter's wedding. It took Karla 4-5 emails to send an attachment with the original quote. There were few small changes I wanted made to the quote, so scheduled an appointment for our daughter to tour the venue. Before the appointment we were ask to change the time so could meet with Bob, we agreed. My daughter shows up at the new appointment time and doesn't get to meet with Bob and the quote has not been prepared. Krystal redoes the quote and it is almost $6,000 more than than the original. Not happy! I guess this is how they run things now. I highly sugggest you at other venues, because I won't trust them to do my daughter's wedding. Who knows how messed up it would be the day of the wedding if I put it in their hands.
