My husband and I got married at Kemah Gardens, October 22, 2016. The day was incredible! Ciria and her team worked with us to deliver everything on time, and to get everything setup. Her recommended vendors for the cake, DJ, food and flowers were wonderful. There was some miscommunication with the flower folks, but Debbie took care of it quickly. Her team came together to get the centerpieces completed. The team at Kemah Gardens were attentive and offered wonderful smiles with their service. They made us feel at home, which enabled us to be able to take in all the goodness of that very special day. Our guests raved to us about how amazing the venue was, and how neat it was that it's located in our part of town. Thank you to the team for helping us celebrate this magical moment!

I reserved my wedding just over a year before our wedding. We got married this past weekend, and it was amazing. She helped take so much stress out of the planning, finding other vendors, and so much more. I got the all inclusive package, and it was perfect for us. I didn't have to worry about finding and paying for the officiant, cake, dj, food, bartender, anything. She knew our colors (purple and camo), and decorated the venue with a mixture of her decor and some that I had dropped off.
Everything went smoothly, and I couldn't ask for more. I loved it, and all the guests were in complete aw!
Thank you for a picture perfect wedding!

From the first day of seeing Kemah Garden's, it was breath taking. We drove up to the gates without an appointment and Ciria was open to meeting with us and showing us around the property. We absolutely loved it and her customer service. We planned our wedding a year in advance and Ciria was in contact with us always, from sending photos of recent weddings or just seeing how the planning was going. She genuinely cares about her clients and it shows in her work. The venue is gorgeous and very well maintained. We used her preferred vendors for food, cakes and DJ. The food was amazing and everyone commented on how wonderful it was. The desserts were terrific and Dean kept the dance floor going all night. He even came out and danced with us! If you haven't checked out Kemah Gardens, you definitely should! This place is a hidden gem and should be on the top everyone's list who is planning an event! Thank you again to Ciria and her wonderful staff!

As soon as we walked into the Venue we knew right away this place was for us! If you want a Sunset Wedding this is your place. Kelly and me are laid back people . We love to entertain and just make sure everyone is having a good time. So when we toured Kemah Gardens we imagined all of our family and friends outside at sunset with this Amazing view where everytime there is a different sunset we knew this is our HOME! But then we walked into this Beautiful Pavillion that had great wood work, beautiful lighting and at this time it was open but they were in the process of making it to where it could be open or a closed Pavillion! Ciria Rybicki was just so down to earth and welcomed us in with open arms! My Husband even said she reminds me of you! Petite and full of fire! Meaning he could see this gleam in her eyes that he knew she truly enjoyed what she was doing! He sees that in my eyes everyday! We knew Kemah Gardens was the place for us!

We got married in April and it was absolutely perfect. Kemah Gardens was more than I could have imagined. Ciria was awesome and very helpful throughout the whole planning process and on the wedding day! The day we were getting married, the forecast was thunderstorms in the afternoon. Ciria called me that day and we figured out our game plan for handling the weather. It ended up being sunny and the sunset while we said I do was so pretty setting behind the trees. All of her staff are very sweet and helpful. We got the inclusive package that included cake, dj, venue, and dinner. I used her dj and her florist. First, the flowers were so beautiful. She used all my inspiration pictures and made everything so easy (and so reasonably priced). She was able to figure out what I wanted with one consultation and I didn’t even see in flowers! I do have to say the dj was so nice and helpful during the reception. The only thing negative that happened was the dj did not look at my whole email which had a TON of songs and band requests to be played during the reception. I did not hear one song I had requested to be played. It was an honest mistake and I would use him again, it is just a bummer he didn’t realize until the very end. The enclosed pavilion was so beautiful for the reception. If you are considering Kemah Gardens for your big day, I would say go check it out, talk to Ciria… the pictures on the website is exactly what you see there!

We celebrated our Wedding in March after the recent renovations. Could'nt have selected any other place for our special day. Mrs. Ciria and staff were uncomparable. Everything I wanted they were able to accomodate. The sunset ceremony was my favorite part. Our guest kept talking about how beautiful this venue was. Overall, very happy. My beautiful dream wedding turned into a reality. Stop your search, this is the place to get married at!!

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!

The entire venue was absolutely amazing. My husband and I were renewing our vows after 33 years and originally had only gone to the courthouse to get married. This time we did it the right way and it was beyond my wildest dreams of what my wedding would be like. Ciria and her staff become like family and take such a personal touch to everything that you want and need. Ciria has so much experience that you can go to her with no idea of what you want and she will make it a fairy tale dream for you. I can't say enough about how great they are at Kemah Gardens. All I can say is that if you don't use them you are missing out on a special life experience.

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.

Ciria & her team are awesome! Kemah Gardens was the perfect location for our intimate wedding, and we couldn't be happier with how our special day turned out because of Ciria's attention to detail. Our family & friends had a wonderful time too and had only rave reviews on everything from the gardens & decor, to the caterer, DJ, and her entire staff! And the newly renovated pavilion is stunning for any theme! This venue is a must see!
