The McCoy’s are excited to breathe life back into these old buildings through weddings and special events. During the restoration process, the McCoy’s maintained as much of the original structures as possible, down to 100+ year old concrete walls.
To date, Olde Dobbin Station has hosted over 500 weddings and special events, and continues to wow guests and clients with its story and charm. Olde Dobbin Station is one of the only historic wedding venues in the Montgomery and North Houston area. It has been featured in numerous wedding magazines, and been voted as the number one venue in Texas.
The wedding venue includes the main hall, dubbed McCoy Station, the indoor Chapel, an outdoor ceremony site, a Bridal suite, and the Groom’s quarters. It can hold both indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies.
Carrie and Robert McCoy stepped foot into Olde Dobbin Station and felt the grandeur of 100 year old concrete walls. The two of them immediately had a vision to restore the space for celebrations.
Carrie tastefully designed the bar, walkways, stone paths, and bridal suite with a vintage but timeless glamour. When you visit, you’ll notice touches here and there, especially in the dressing rooms.
Rob is Olde Dobbin Station’s main handyman, in that his bare hands built the doors to both buildings, among many other small projects in the venue. Handcrafting is his hobby and together, he and his wife made something really unique.
The new roof is complete and bathrooms begin construction.
The brick columns are built around the original steel structures.
Process begins for custom metal window frames for all the spaces, to tie in those original steel elements.
With the brick work around the columns completed , and the concrete floors poured, the Chandeliers make the room come to life.
Outdoor ceremony site is officially complete with added landscaping, and ready for all the beautiful nuptials.
Looking back on these images is nostalgic in so many ways. Those beautiful trees have blossomed so much.
Officially complete and ready for events. Though these walls have greenery that extenuates them now, the underneath is beautiful all it's own.
After the Houston/Montgomery area experienced historically damaging flooding, Carrie and Rob decided to renovate the chapel and add on to the back of the building.
In November, they raised the floor in the chapel with fresh concrete, redid the entrances, added a new insulated roof on top of the original, and hung new chandeliers. A second dressing suite was added at this time, officially dubbed Teal's Place, after their second child.
Rob once again hand-carved chapel doors. A welder was commissioned to create windows as close as possible to the original structure.
Bringing life back into this space, was the added touch Olde Dobbin needed to enhance wedding days that much more.
