Our History

The amazing grounds at Heaven on Earth
The Heaven on Earth Story:

The original structure is a Texas historic landmark, the first settlers of Missouri City, Texas built the home in 1898. The home was purchased and restored by J. Herbert and Susan Douglas in the early seventies, and together they began what has become one of Houston’s most successful wedding venues, producing more than 7,800 wedding in 40 years of service to the Greater Houston area.

Some of our historical parts...Mr. Douglas was a renowned interior designer. He bought the 1898 country cottage as a wedding present for his young bride, Susan.  Because of the picturesque setting on two acres, surrounded by magnificent oak trees, a feeling of tranquility existed and still does to this day, which led them to name their home “Heaven On Earth.”

The couple began restoring the original structure and increasing its size.  In an effort to conform to the classic architecture of the main house all new wings were built from old timbers, using doors, windows, fireplaces, staircases and flooring from historic homes, schools, churches and buildings that were being demolished.  The Douglas’ began offering tours and luncheons in 1972 and weddings and receptions followed in 1976.
