Who Are We?
“We were very honored and lucky to have met Mr. & Mrs. Moffitt themselves during our rehearsal the evening before the wedding. They are the most generous and kind people! I even saw Mrs. Moffitt checking on the ceremony set up the day of the wedding which made me smile, because it showed how much she cares.”— Brittany via the Knot
As the owner of Moffitt Oaks, Patricia has been helping Houston brides plan their dream weddings for three years. “Unofficially,” she’s been in the wedding and party planning industry for over thirty years. When asked what piece of advice she would give to a newly engaged couple in the beginning stages of planning a wedding, her advice would be, “Do your research, choose vendors carefully and only work with those you like.” Patricia will share on any given day, that her staff of creative, enthusiastic event planners makes her life easy.
Native to Tomball, Patricia enjoys managing all aspects of this amazing property and meeting the new people that come through the doors to share one of the most important days of their life. Patricia’s favorite part of the wedding usually happens towards the end of the events, and the bride and groom say it was the best day of their life. As far as her favorite part of event planning, Patricia believes she shines brightest in the coordination of design elements.
“Moffitt Oaks provides you with your own wedding planner, which I definitely have to mention Ms. Chris Krauss! We connected with her the second we met. She went above and beyond with making our wedding day unforgettable. Throughout the whole year of planning she was there whenever we needed her, answered all of our questions, and made everything less stressful.” – Brittany via The Knot
Chris was born in Chicago and graduated from Tomball High School. With four years in the events industry, Chris is available to help guide you through the entire wedding planning process.
“From start to finish, I love being a part of the whole process,” she says. Above all, Chris says brides should never be afraid to ask questions, that’s what your planner is there for, after all! With everything that goes into planning, coordinating and designing a wedding, Chris’s specialty is room design and layout.
“I ‘adopt’ my brides and they almost become like my daughters,” she says of the relationships formed. “At the end of the night, when the bride & groom tell me ‘This was the best day of my life’ that’s the best part of it all.”
“I came across Moffitt at a Bridal Extravaganza about 8 months out from my wedding day. I spoke with Melissa and if the beautiful venue didn’t sell me it was her! She knows her stuff and remains calm, cool and collected up until your exit from the venue. She never made me feel stressed and I was always confident she would handle everything I needed.”— Lyndsey via the Knot
Melissa was born and raised in Katy, Texas and graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Public Relations and Business Administration. With five years in the event planning industry, her passion for event planning and design never dulls. When you ask her what her favorite part of being a wedding planner is, she is quick to answer:
“As a wedding planner, my job may end after the wedding, but I love to stay in touch with our couples. Over the course of planning the weddings, we become friends, and it’s important to us to stay connected after their wedding is over. It’s exciting to hear when they buy their first house or start their families”.
Melissa has been with Moffitt Oaks for four years. “Coming to Moffitt Oaks isn’t really working,” she explained. “When you are constantly laughing and poking fun at your co-workers, work then becomes family time. You cannot find the kind of love we each share for one another anywhere else than Moffitt Oaks. This reflect onto our couples, as we are all part of the Moffitt family”.
“Our coordinator Lauren is an absolute doll who kept us calm and focused (no small task, since the arrangements we’d made previously had all fallen apart). In the few weeks before the wedding, she walked through the timeline with us, covering all bases and thinking of a few things we hadn’t.” – Michelle via the Knot
Lauren has been in the event industry for five years which started after she attended The University of Houston, “Go Coogs!” We love watching Lauren interact with the couples as she focuses on the couple’s best interest in mind.
“I have been told by multiple clients that my honesty is their favorite part of working with me. I try my best to make sure that every decision made and every question asked is going to benefit my couples in the long run”.
Lauren has a passion for building relationships with her couples. “I love bringing their vision and ideas to life,” she expressed. “The wedding is or client’s special day, and I am here to make that day as stress-free as possible”.
Sharon has been with Moffitt Oaks since its conception. The previous 25 years, Sharon and her husband were in the construction and remodeling business. She feels the fields are related in that they both involve working directly with clients in& visualizing and implementing their dreams.
As a veteran party planner, Sharon understands that a wedding is so much more than a party, however the behind the scenes planning, budgeting and completion are much the same. While Sharon enjoys the entire process of planning a wedding or special event from conception to final details, her favorite moment of each and every wedding is that “just married” smile.
Ronnie and Tammy
The sister duo steals the show. Ronnie and Tammy are from Opelousas, Louisiana and have been working with the Moffitt family for over a decade. They entered the event industry four years ago when we opened Moffitt Oaks.
“Our favorite part of Moffitt Oaks weddings is the décor.” Said Ronnie and Tammy. “Though we have different day to day task, in the end we have the same goal… making the bride’s dream come true.”
Ronnie and Tammy pride themselves in their attention to detail. Ronnie makes sure our bride and grooms are being very well taken care of while they’re in the Bridal and Groom’s suite. Tammy set’s the venue with the in-house decorations.

“If you’re still searching for a venue, search no further. Moffitt Oaks is incredible. They have SO many different locations with so many different styles, so everyone can find what fits them. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff. They literally go above and beyond each and every time something arises- whether it’s figuring out the best mode of arrival for the bride to the ceremony, coordinating vendors, fixing vendor issues, checking to make sure everything is going great on the day-of, or skillfully setting up decor. They are amazing and I enjoyed every second of the process with them. They literally have everything and will do almost anything!”

“We got married in November at Moffitt Oaks. I searched for months trying to find the perfect venue that wasn’t way over priced and am so glad I found Moffitt Oaks. I called them for an appointment and she saw me on the same day. From our first meeting I felt like family! Chris was my coordinator and she kept in contact with me throughout the entire process. I booked most of my vendors through their recommendations who all turned out great! I kept waiting to get stressed out but it never happened because they took care of SO many little details that we didn’t have to worry. One of the biggest perks was all the deco they have at the venue that is available for you to use at no extra charge! I can’t say enough great things about this venue. They helped give me the fairytale wedding I have always dreamed of!”

“We got married at Moffitt Oaks just a few shorts weeks ago and have been wishing the day back ever since! The venue alone is stunning & paired with the right weather it’s unbelievable. Outside of the venue being just plain gorgeous; the people who work here make it all that more special. From the first time meeting Trish at the bridal extravaganza I knew we would be in good hands but I had no idea the blessing coming our way by the name of Eric. Eric was our coordinator/planner/friendly advice and saver of the day! Not one thing went unplanned or unspoken of and the communication lines could not have been more clear. As a bride everyone expected me to be frazzled on the day but there was just his calm presence and subtle “you shouldn’t be doing this- go get ready” remarks to keep us all on track. We had several guests compliment the flawless execution of our ceremony (even though the maid of honor forgot the grooms ring) and the fun filled reception and for that Moffitt is to admire. The DJ, the catering company, the help offered, the staff and the creative freedoms we had planning our big day made it dream like. Anyone looking for a little slice of heaven should head out to Tomball.”

“I truly could not have asked for a better venue or better staff on my wedding day! Everyone at Moffitt went out of their way to make sure our day was perfect and stress-free. Moffitt Oaks exceeded any and all expectations – we would highly recommend them!!”

“Our wedding was held at Moffitt Oaks on Jan. 29, 2016. I can honestly say it was one of the highlights of our life! It is the perfect place to begin building new memories. The Venue is beautiful and the staff is willing to customize for any theme or size function. It was an honor to work with our coordinator Eric, who made all worries seem like nothing and took care of each and every detail. I highly recommend Moffitt Oaks for the superior service and obviously a staff who strives to make sure everyone is happy at the end of the day!!”

“We only had six months to plan, but it was a breeze. The planning process was organized, easy, and concise. Makes it easy for anyone to plan a wedding. The entire Moffitt family was so sweet the entire time and would even start late at meetings and just shoot the breeze with us. And even with a morning full of rain the day turned out perfect and we were still able to have the ceremony outside. Thank you again, I’m so glad we had our wedding at Moffitt Oaks.”
