HERE'S WHAT A FEW HAD TO SAY...

My wedding was 10/10/15 and Ciria with Kemah Gardens along with her staff couldn’t have made it more beautiful and memorable for not only myself, but my family and friends as well.

Although I had a long engagement, Ciria always kept in touch and enjoyed sharing with me picture updates of beautiful upgrades/renovations to the property. She truly made the entire process feel like we’d been family friends for years.

Ciria was great with communicating the week of the wedding, and ensured that everything was to my liking. I’m not sure I could’ve asked for a better person to have the day of the wedding, as she and her amazing staff did anything and everything needed to set up and ensure that guests arrived smoothly (one of her staff members even helped each of our guests with out polaroid picture guest book and made sure everyone got their pictures taken!). Even after a devastating delay (the bridal party’s fault), Ciria immediately brought me a bottle of wine (she’s THAT good haha) and calmed me down. She worked with her staff, photographer, caterer, and DJ to ensure that we were able to make up some time and still get the most out of our time there.

The night was amazing and I was getting comments ALL night (and still a week later!) on how beautiful the venue was, and what a great time they all had. It truly is as beautiful as it is in the pictures!

Along with Ciria and her staff, the food was great (Red River BBQ – duh, of course it was great), the DJ, Michael Vasquez, was the best wedding DJ I’d ever witnessed (also GREAT with communicating the weeks leading up to the wedding and the day of), we got a ton of comments on how delicious and pretty the wedding cake was (Cakes By Jula), and I loved our rustic-themed centerpieces by All That Blooms.

If you’re looking for a beautiful outdoor wedding, handled by someone who truly knows what she’s doing, I don’t know why you’d go anywhere else but Kemah Gardens!

I can almost say most guys getting married normally just get the rings, sit back and let the bride do everything. Not me ! , I had fun with the whole experience working with Ciria. She made me and my bride feel so good about making the decision to get married at KEMAH GARDENS. Everything she presented to us were just what we wanted. I am so please to see my bride so happy and beautiful as she walked down the aisle. The landscape and the lake made it so gorgeous and exquisite that made our wedding a special day not to forget. I still smile every time I think about all the selfie's everyone was taking. Right there, we knew we made a brilliant decision on picking Kemah Gardens as our venue. The entire place is set up so beautiful making all our guests so amazed on how everything looks almost perfect. Thank you Ciria and your staff for making our day a very special one.

I cannot say enough how wonderful our wedding was at Kemah Gardens, Ciria was amazing during the whole process. We wanted to have an intimate wedding and she made it happen. The venue is unlike anything you can imagine, absolutely beautiful. Her time and attention to make everything perfect is something rare, she treated us like family. She was available anytime I needed and I can honestly say it was a perfect day because of all of her hard work. I recommend anyone to have a wedding here and you will have the best experience possible. Even after our event she has sent picture and contacted us to see how we were, and wish us congratulations again. There is something so special about the property, you will feel it immediately when you see it. Thank you again Ciria to you and everyone at Kemah Gardens.

I was so blessed to have been led and chose to have my special day with Ciria at Kemah Gardens! She always went the extra mile with help/ideas and just making all involved comfortable with our wedding day! We chose to have a small ceremony at her location at 9 AM and we were very pleased and have no regrets at all. If the evening would have been available, we would have continued with the reception. But it all worked out in the end. We also chose to upgrade the pergola with some additional twine - of which I was happy to find out that the attempt to split the cost with another bride after our ceremony agreed to. We were the first of three weddings on this day and she does amazing work!!! We both love to fish, so we even got pics as if we were fish'n in her beautiful pond stocked full of fish! We have memorable moments and plenty of beautiful pictures. Ciria truly has a passion for what she does and it is revealed in her work. We can not even thank you enough Ciria for the experience we had with your guidance. Your hand of God's spirit will always be remembered.

My husband and I got married at Kemah Gardens on April 18, 2015. We loved the interior of the B&B and the look of the pavilion but the thought of a wedding under the gazebo at sunset won us over. Ciria was awesome to work with. We planned our wedding in 1 month so it meant a lot to me that she was able to give recommendations on a pastor, photographer, food and the DJ. While our plan was to get married under the gazebo, the weather didn’t cooperate and excessive rain moved our ceremony to the pavilion. The pavilion is absolutely stunning by itself but with the beautiful altar that Ciria had set up and the simple decorations we brought in it was beyond perfect and romantic. The rain stopped prior to the ceremony and the sun came out as we said our vows with a huge double rainbow in the background. Ciria probably didn’t have a hand in that but if so I wouldn’t be surprised! Thank you, Ciria, for making our wedding so beautiful and stress free!

I'll be honest and say I'm not a big fan of weddings especially with all the keeping up with the Jones' that's now so popular and so cliche. What's worse is my unique situation. So when I was looking for a venue, I wanted to find a place that could accommodate just me and my now DH. You see, he's an orphan with little to no family and that's why I had decided that it would just be me and him. You know, kinda like Big on Sex and The City where he just wanted it to be just him and Carrie? I was not disappointed. Ciria treated us like family from the very beginning. I didn't even order a bouquet cause I thought it wasn't it for me. Well she got me one anyway! lol And I actually liked it since it added to the experience. You will not find anyone else like her. I looked around and there are a lot of snobby people in the wedding business. Ciria is such a genuine, down to earth, generous, just good hearted person with some southern hospitality. Oh and the officiant she found for us couldn't have been more perfect! Amazing! He is truly a blessing! The photographer was super sweet. I loved everything about this place. The venue is gorgeous. Beautifully landscaped. For me, the most important thing was being able to connect with the people who were helping us make this day special for us both. They all went above and beyond their call of duty and made our evening very special and for that I am very thankful. I know God will repay them all for all that they did for us.
