Since many of you will be traveling out of town, hopefully the below information will make your travel plans easier. We'd also like to extend our gratitude to each of you who decides to make the trip. We recognize the planning, money, and time it will take to join the celebration. This means the world to us. IMPORTANT: for hotel information and promotional codes, please check our FAQ section.

Flight

William P. Hobby Airport (HOU)

William P. Hobby (HOU) airport is our go-to. It is a Southwest Airlines HUB and usually has cost-effective, non-stop flights from most major airports. It is 1 hr 6 min from Wharton, Texas, which is the location of the wedding. George Bush Intercontinental (IAH) airport is larger and may have more options for other airlines. However, it is 1 hr 18 min from Wharton, Texas, without traffic. We do want to caution people that Houston traffic is horrific. It is the 5th largest city in the U.S. with a road system that leaves much to be desired. Southwest link below:

Travel Note

The Coveted: Buc-ee's

If you've never heard of Buc-ee's, well yee-haw! You'll be in Texas and we've got a Buc-ee's less than 5 minutes from the wedding venue. Buc-ee's is a premier gas station, yes a gas station...best fudge you'll ever have. We honestly highly recommend it. Grab your Christmas gifts, your favorite snacks, and some local alcohol from THE Texas gas station.

Travel Note

Houston: The Bayou City

Though Wharton is a trip from Houston, if you plan to spend the weekend in Texas, we recommend staying in Wharton just for the wedding night and then visiting Houston. Houston is happening; the parks are fantastic, the museums are beautiful, and the food and drink scene...fabulous. Our recommendations as follows: Parks: One of our favorites (where we took engagement photos): Hermann Park which has the Japanese and McGovern Gardens (https://www.hermannpark.org/visit/mcgovern-centennial-gardens/). Think you're in the city? Think again with this forest retreat...Memorial Park (https://www.memorialparkconservancy.org/). Park but make it art, Smithers Park (https://www.full.orangeshow.org/smither-park). Museums: If you've got a little to spend, the color factory takes you out of your comfort zone and brings back child-like wonder (https://www.colorfactory.co/). The Health Museum...low-key banger, Hannah knows (https://thehealthmuseum.org/). The Menil Collection, a free art museum with interesting turns, we loved the main historic exhibits (https://www.menil.org/events/4256-member-noontime-talk-art-of-the-ancient-world). But there's more fabulous ones, those are just the museums we've visited (https://www.visithoustontexas.com/things-to-do/arts-and-culture/museums/). Food and drink scene: St. Arnold Brewery is a large Texas brewery with indoor and outdoor seating (https://www.saintarnold.com/). Buffalo Bayou brewery...looking for the best view of the Houston skyline? Their rooftop bar area is it (https://www.buffbrew.com/). Pit Room has fantastic Texas BBQ, some would say the best (https://thepitroombbq.com/). Hot Bagel Shop...that Smoked Salmon Sandwich (https://www.hotbagelshouston.com/). Common Bond, great breakfast and treats (https://www.commonbondcafe.com/). If you visit more and you love it, let us know, we'd love to try :)
