Really nice wedding venue. Beautiful outdoor space. Not the biggest indoor space, but very nice none the less.

We had our wedding at Shirley Acres -ceremony outside and reception in the Garden Room. Charity was our wedding coordinator. Our guests had an amazing time! They loved the venue, food, cake. We provided our own bartender and dj. We had a bunch of diy stuff and it was set up nicely. Charity was very sweet, great communication throughout the whole event and patient; she definitely saved me from my one and only bridezilla moment! Our only concern was the mosquitoes. Yeah we did an outside wedding in Texas with a body of standing water nearby, but the mosquitoes had a strong presence. There was mosquito repellent for us to use, but something more permanent would be nice. Overall everyone had an awesome time and we are still getting comments about the awesome service Shirley Acres provided! Thank you!read more

What a beautiful, outdoorsy wedding venue! With a gorgeous indoors hall as well, this place makes it one of your first choices if you are planning a wedding in this side of town. Juan Huerta Photography was here and not only we loved the location, but its professional staff is amazing. Totally recommend them!

This is a great place for peaceful events. Its laid back and in a quiet area. Its the place to be. They do not allow alcoholic beverages there, but you won't need any. The staff and everyone there are the nicest ever. Highly recommend

Venue is big and can accommodate a large group of guests. Speaker system works wellAppetizers and food taste good. Dance floor was big. (Btw no drinks on the dance floor or outside)Only cons:- they must valet park your car. No other option. - the alcohol they served was watered down. (I don't drink but that's what all my friends complained about)

This is going to be long- there is so much to say.First, I re-read the reviews here, and I do not understand why there would be anything but 5 stars for this place. If I could, I’d give them 100!We started wedding planning in July- Shirley Acres was one of the first few venues we looked at. The place was pretty, and Bob, the owner, was adorable! ( We love you, Bob). He was so patient, and kind. We re-visited Shirley Acres 3 times with questions( mostly mine, my fiancé was convinced the first time) as we were trying to finalize the venue, and we were greeted with the same patience and warmth each time. Don’t get me wrong- we loved the place and the people, but it was my 1st time, so I wanted to look around. But Nothing came close, and we gladly chose Shirley Acres. We worked with them over 6 months, and there isn’t one thing that I could think of, that I’d be disappointed with. Even through Harvey, they worked tirelessly. Everyone at Shirley Acres is so nice, so sweet, so helpful and always smiling. When they say “ leave it to us to make your day special,” they mean it. We had the rehearsal the day before- the ceremony was supposed to be outside, so was the rehearsal. Our wedding coordinator, Charity, was with us every step of the way. Fast forward to the day of the wedding-It rained the day of our wedding. Charity, after checking in with us, moved the ceremony indoor. She took care of the quick indoor rehearsal. I must say, the ceremony looked extremely pretty- I don’t know how they did it, but it looked so perfect, and so pretty. The stage, the flowers, the isle. I want to give Jim a hug for exceeding expectations, whether it was the centerpieces, the sweetheart table flowers, the cake design and flowers, the stage- it was all so so beautiful. I can’t get over it!Charity really made the evening go by flawlessly. I’m sure it’s not easy to set up the room and coordinate a thousand things in such a short time, have everything set up on time, get all the vendors and guests ready for various ceremonies, but not once, did I see Charity’s smile fade away. Our families loved her, and all the guests were so impressed by the place, it’s beauty, the professionalism, the people, and the food. Yes, the Food and cake were yummy!!!! It’s a big deal in Indian weddings to make sure the food is good- I am so glad that my family LOVED it.I probably forgot to mention a million other things, and maybe i’ll be back for a second review, but I can’t be happier that we chose Shirley Acres to be the place where I married my love. Bob has his heart and soul in it, and we have loved everyone we got a chance to meet with at Shirley Acres- truly a team of the sweetest, most efficient people. Thank You for making our day more special than we could have ever imagined. ��read more
Had my wedding here. Absolutely amazing. Got rained out. They managed to move everything inside and turn it into a dream. We were warm, dry, stuffed with amazing food, and more importantly, the bride and I didn't have to worry or stress about any of it. Also, the coordinator Charity worked very well with our dj to have the whole event work out seamlessly. Can't say enough good things about this place, but more importantly, Bob, Charity, and the whole staff.read more

Linda Griffin Dietert
This venue is so warm and inviting . The food is delicious! I love it here .
We had the most amazing experience here, they helped us plan my daughter's wedding in just 6 weeks. I wouldn't change one single thing, the flowers were just beautiful, the cake was delicious, the food was amazing and our wedding coordinators Krystal and Ashley were the absolute BEST! I highly recommend Shirley Acres to anyone planning a wedding �
Beautiful venue and a great sunset and greenery for photos! I recently photographed a wedding here and the staff was fantastic and the food was � incredible. Would deff recommend to my bride's! Great venue �
This venue is amazing! Charity was so accommodating and there the whole time making sure everything went smoothly. The DJ was also amazing he made sure people were having a good time and on the dance floor. The overall experience from start to finish was nothing short of amazing. They provide pretty much everything in house which I loved and all of the services from floral to food to the Dj were spot on. We had so many compliments from family and friends about the whole experience and how pretty the venue was. We can’t say enough good things and don’t have a thing to complain about. Hands down best wedding I could have asked for.read more

Shirley Acres is one of those places where you never have to guess how everything will go. I was at a political function where it's both a meeting and a luncheon. EVERYTHING went perfectly as it ALWAYS does! Food is very good as is the service.
Quite lovely for our Bailey Wedding 7.29.2017 Staff most attentive. DJ was pumping up the guest! Photo Booth a surprise hit! All made for a happy couple Hillary and Kyle!
What a whirl it has been for my Husband and I. We want to thank Shirley Acres for making our day super special!!

Staff at shirley acre is absolutely amazing!!! They are so accommodating and sweet! I felt very confident after booking with them because they are such genuine people! Jennifer, our wedding coordinator was so amazing! Easy to stay in contact with and she was with me the whole day! I felt like she was a bridesmaid or one of my sisters!! My guests loved the food, the wedding ceremony was absolutely beautiful in the garden, and jim the florist did an absolutely amazing job!! My family stayed in the guest house for 2 nights and they loved it, very comfortable and spacious for my whole family! It was the perfect setting for our tea ceremony ( vietnamese ceremony). I would 100% recommend shirley acre to anyone looking for a venue!! In fact, ive spread the word to a couple of co workers that are getting married!! I cannot thank them enough for all that they did to make my wedding day so perfect!!read more

Our congregation celebrated Passover at Shirley Acres and it was awesome. Food was fantastic. We will be back I'm sure.
Shirley acres is an elegant, and beautiful place where your special occasion will be remember for ever. We had our Passover celebration last night and everything was amazing especially the tasty food. I recommend it for your especial occasion.
Bob and his staff are amazing. It's a little stressful trying to work 2 weddings in one day because both brides want the same thing, unfortunately I drew the short end of the stick and had to move my time around but it turned out really good. Charity and Krystal made sure everything was set up exactly as requested and had smiles on the whole time. Food was amazing, cake was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better group of people or venue. Thank you guys!!read more

Fantastic venue and staff! I hope we get to return there soon!
I never imagined being a bride would be so tiring until I lived it myself. As much as we had prepared for things the best we could, it was inevitable for a few things to not go as planned. Thankfully much of it were small trivial things in retrospect, but I know for a fact that things could not have gone by as smoothly without our coordinator, CHARITY. Thank you for being accommodating, understanding, thoughtful, and attentive. From being our music dj to making sure we had a chance to eat amist all the chaos. The role you played and impact you left on our special night was invaluable and timeless to serve as a memory that we will be able look back smiling with joy for years to come. Thank you and your staff at Shirley Acres so much for playing a crucial part in our special day.read more
Shirley Acres went above and beyond at our wedding this past weekend. We had many compliments from all of our guests. The scenery is very beautiful with many many natural places to take beautiful pictures. Our coordinator Charity was truly amazing and more than I could ever asked for. Food, cake, drinks everything was on point. Thank you so much for giving us the wedding of our dreams and a lifetime full of memories.read more
They went above and beyond to help our scholarship luncheon be a success!

Love the beautiful venue. Wonderful food and great atmosphere.
I came here for my cousin's wedding and I really loved the place. It was different than the traditional ballroom receptions that I've been to in the past. I loved the whole ambiance and would consider this place for any future events. I also thought that the staff was very professional.

�️time here. Always �Thank you always great service.
As a wedding photographer, I get to shoot in several venues around Houston. Shirley Acres has to be one of my favorites due to the natural beauty of the venue, land and diverse scenery. The recent renovations are beautiful, the gardens, the lake, the field, etc, all breathtaking especially when the sun starts to set through the trees. The staff was not only accommodating but helpful, and a tip-of-my-hat to the chef for making sure I was able to eat something amazing during my breaks. I highly recommend Shirley Acres to any photographer looking for a scenic & versatile place to shoot, and to any couples who want to start building beautiful memories.read more
Beautiful and quaint place tucked away where you'd not expect...so easy to get to from Cypresswood and Kuykendahl yep hidden away in lush trees & surroundings. Staff was so friendly and attentive, everthing flowed so well at the wedding we just attended. The food was teriffic and we asked who the caterer was, and to our surprise, not catered! Each of the hosts and servers were proud to say they cook it all themselves, right here. Servers were so kind to take away plates, and ask first. And all evening someone was there to pour you more tea or water. Very clean and neat, I felt the whole reception was immediately on queue from the minute the bride & groom were announced. Walking in from the outside, guests immediately had fresh water glasses available, and appetizers were all ready for guests while wedding photos were being taken. It was a nice and lighthearted, relaxed atmosphere the whole evening. I'd recommend this place to anyone from large to smaller intimate occasions, and not just weddings.read more
