“One of THE BEST wedding venues in Houston! …In the end our wedding was PERFECT and better than we could have imagined! Our guests are still raving about the food, which we were able to customize during our tasting. Michelle and her team are simply the best, and if you need a venue for a small/medium-sized wedding, this is the one!!!”

– Amy S.

“We had our room block at the The SAM and I’m so happy we did! Everyone there was so nice and incredibly helpful. Michelle was absolutely great to work with - she helped us adjust the size of our block, get goodie bags delivered to our guests, and take care of any last minute issues that popped up. All our guests loved The SAM, as did we!”

– Sara S.

“We really enjoyed having the Sam as our reception venue. I am still getting compliments on how cool and unique of a wedding venue it was! I like how it gave an outdoor feel but was inside so we didn't have to worry about the weather.”
