Hey All You Newly Engaged Lovebirds! Are you still in need of a fabulous wedding venue? We are smitten with the newest wedding venue addition to the Brazos Valley Bridal Association, The Gin at Hidalgo Falls! The venue is rich with history and perfectly incorporates vintage-industrial design with modern details and amenities. Epoch Co+ had the pleasure of touring this amazing Cotton Gin restoration and we absolutely can't wait to plan and coordinate many weddings at The Gin!
The Ceremony Space - Cotton Fields
Did you know the back side of the wedding venue is surrounded by active cotton fields? These fields provide the perfect backdrop for ceremonies! Planting of the cotton seeds usually takes place by April, but can happen as late as May. Seedlings can emerge within a week, and the cotton morphology begins until harvest. Harvest in the area can occur between late August and Early September, and is dependent on the weather patterns.
At the edge of the fields are also two fantastic silos that are aged to perfection and can create the perfect location near sunset for a late ceremony or sweetheart images of the newlyweds when the sun provides a dreamy glow!
If the fields aren't calling your name, and you adore The Gin structure itself - we think there are two fabulous locations to have an outdoor ceremony facing the wedding venue. The left end will have a gorgeous porch that is right off one of the getting ready suites that can house an outdoor ceremony option, (think rows of chairs for immediate family and standing ceremony with cocktail tables for larger events) or on the backside of the venue is an expansive wrap-around porch with the perfect little cove. We can already envision lush greenery vining up the Gin for an elegant, garden-meets industrial wedding!
Rainy weather dampening your big day? The spacious 4,000 sq ft venue can easily house an indoor ceremony option at either far end of the venue, then transition during cocktail hour for a seamless room-flip.
Reception Space - The Gin
After the ceremony, guests can linger on the expansive surrounding covered porches for cocktail hour, or they can immediately enter the Gin with it's souring ceilings, original exposed beams, and modern touches filled with natural lighting.
Their website details all the amenities included with the rental space!
Wedding Photoshoot - Planning & Coordination
Epoch Co+ has been absolutely thrilled with the idea of The Gin! We took the time to meet Laura (and her sweet family!) to see the construction phases of the venue. Even with the beginning bones of The Gin, we love it just the way it is, and we are ecstatic to see Laura, her family and her team's vision become a reality!
We know being within minutes of College Station, and just a short drive away from Houston and Austin, that this wedding venue will be booked endlessly with a wide variety of wedding clients - celebrating their new beginnings of joining two families into one. We hope you will consider EPOCH Co+ when entrusting someone to help bring your wedding vision to life within this timeless space. To celebrate this dreamy venue, we are offering 10% off all of our packages to any client who books The Gin and Epoch Co+ in 2018! (Even if your wedding isn't until 2020 and beyond!)
With the actual opening of the venue leaning towards Fall 2018, myself and a few of our vendor friends (Urban Rubbish, Ten23 Photography, Western Velour Beauty) have teamed up to bring the beauty of this venue to life. We hope you will tune back in late-May to see the bridal blow-out we have planned for this gorgeous venue (and watch behind the scenes snippets on our social media!). You won't want to miss this amazing inspiration and beginning phases of what is to come with The Gin at Hidalgo Falls.
