1919 Houston Avenue, Houston, Texas, United States

Much like the etching on the outside of this historic landmark, "trust in us" when we say this fabulous fire station will fan the most fashionable of flames for your next fete.
Known as "Stonewall" its one of the oldest of the Houston fire stations and subsequently turned historic wedding hotspot! Stunning vintage facades make for incredibly memorable photos while the interiors accomodate up to 150 guests with soaring and dramatic ceilings. And that fire pole, though.
