I just got married at Kemah Gardens this past Saturday and I absolutely loved this location, the scenery in the background, natural beauty, everything was organized. I honestly didnt understand why people stress out during weddings, because this wedding was STRESS FREE!!!!!
The staff was wonderful, they were organized, had me on track, on schedule and updated with all updates throughout the evening. They handled everything, the food, the cake, the flowers, the decorations, the minister, the clean up... its a one stop shop!

Every single one of my guests commented on how beautiful this location and organization of the entire wedding was, "beautiful" is how everyone described it. Two of my guests said they are thinking of getting married at this location.

I highly recommend Kemah Gardens, you will be 100% satisfied!

Amazing!!! We recently had our wedding at Kemah Gardens and it was absolutely perfect! We booked about 4 months prior to our planned wedding date, which is pretty short notice for most venues, but Kemah Gardens was more than happy to get us ready for our wedding. We had looked at other outdoor venues online and visited one in person but I was set on Kemah Gardens solely based on reviews and pictures. We went to check it out and were ready to sign the moment we stepped inside. We chose a smaller package and had a Friday wedding and we could not have asked for a better price for all that was included!
Ciria and her staff were very friendly and they were very helpful in suggesting decor and even allowing us to use items they had in house (cake cutter, champagne glasses) so we could save a bit more money. I really didn't feel the need to communicate too much but when I emailed, I got a response, plus she was right there texting me to remind me of important items like the minister and cake. We went with all that was included, minister (fun and sweet man), cake by Jula (turned out spectacular) and the photographer.
Wedding day came, we showed up, went to our respective rooms, had fun hanging out for a bit (we paid for a bit of extra time before the ceremony...so worth it) and I did help set up a few things that I had brought. We went over colors that day to set up and music to play and that was it, we got married with no problems whatsoever. Everyone enjoyed the venue and we got so many compliments on the location and staff.
I was not a bridezilla and I suggest you just go over colors or a few specifics and let Kemah Gardens handle it from there, you will not be disappointed!!!

17 months before our wedding and we booked KEMAH GARDENS !!! :-)...The moment Chris and I saw this place, we know we will be getting married here on May 17,2014. The place is to die for for outside wedding. Ciria and her staff made everything possible and delightful for us. Everything she did was exactly what we wanted. Ciria went beyond our expectations. Our family and guests were all pleased and amazed how the whole place was like a paradise for us on our special day. Nothing but good remarks and compliments we heard from everyone that night. You make us very happy and proud. If Chris and I will be given the chance to do our wedding again,no questions what so ever,we will definitely do it at KEMAH GARDENS once again.Again Ciria thank you so much for everything you and your staff did for our special day.God bless, we will keep in touch :)

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. Chris and Ivy Williams.

We had our wedding recently at Kemah Gardens and we were 100% satisfied with our choice! Ciria was absolutely wonderful to work with, she really wants you to have the best and smoothest experience possible. The entire venue is just beautiful, we had our ceremony just before sunset, so it made for some really great pictures! With the help of the staff on hand at our wedding everything went off without a hitch! We really couldn't have asked for a better place...especially for the value!

We had our wedding at Kemah Gardens early December 2013.
It was touch and go with the weather, but fortunately we were able to have our dream outdoor site, (the rain held off for us), and then followed on under the pavilion for our reception. We couldn't of asked for a more helpful and friendlier person than Ciria. She went above and beyond to help with every detail along our 3 month planning timeline.
I highly recommend the vendors that Ciria recommended, as our guests were also extremely satisfied. I wish i could do it all over again. It was magical.
Thankyou Ciria and staff.

Top notch service and professionalism. I actually had an issue with my wedding dress not zipping, so I had to be sewn into it. Even though, we got the ceremony started 30 minutes late, Ciria and her staff were so calming and helpful. All of her vendors are excellent as well..Cakes by Jula...her florist Jeannie ...photographer, Jennifer...made this a perfect and special day. If you are looking for simple elegance, this is the place to have your wedding and reception!

My beautiful daughter and awesome son-in-law were married on June 5th. We had 5 weeks to plan a wedding due to the fact that my son-in law is in the military and had a short leave coming up. Kemah Gardens was PERFECT!! Ciria is the owner and she was so easy to work with and very accomodating to our needs. The setting for the wedding and the reception was beautiful and all of the people that work with/for Ciria are sincerely careing and professional. Even though all of our guests live in the Clearlake area none of them knew about this gorgeous estate and all that it has to offer. The flexibility of packages that you can get also made it quite easy. We opted for everything included package but did not need a couple of the options, and Ceria made it work. My daughters wedding day and my families was so relaxed with no worries because it was all taken care of by the Kemah Gardens Team! We just showed up. I highly recommend Kemah Gardens. You won't be disappointed !

I knew when planning my wedding I wanted to make the planning process as easy as possible. We decided to drive by one Sunday afternoon just to see where it was located. We didn't have an appointment, but thought we would just drive by to check it out, and then try to schedule a time to see it later in the week. As soon as we arrived, Ciria greeted us and invited us to look around. The grounds are beautiful - it is a B&B property on several acres, with deck/arch for ceremonies overlooking a pond. There is a large covered pavillion for reception areas, and everything is nicely kept and landscaped. Ciria can pretty much tailor your package to what you are looking for. We found that the All Inclusive package worked great for us. It included ceremony chairs, arch decor, use of the house for both bridal party and groomsmen to get ready, reception tables/chairs/basic linens, caterer from her list, wedding cake allowance, bartenders, security, clean-up crew, valet, use of champagne glasses/cake cutter, DJ, and probably even more things I've forgotten. This could not have been more perfect for what I was looking for! Ciria is very experienced with weddings, and her professionalism is incredible. We kept in touch many times throughout our engagement, by meeting in person, by phone calls and emails. By the time our event came around, Ciria was almost like a member of the family. She is never too busy for her clients and she will give you all of the attention you need. The wedding was beautiful - timed perfectly with the sunset thanks to Ciria's planning. She helped keep us on task and I had so many people tell me what a beautiful wedding it was thanks to her help! You will not be disappointed with Kemah Gardens and Ciria. No matter the size of the event or your budget, Ciria will be able to help you design the wedding of your dreams. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!

We had our wedding at Kemah Gardens on April 13, 2013 and as my now husband would say, it was the best day of our lives! The beauty of the grounds speak for themselves. We had a perfect day and sunset for our wedding and all of our family and friends absolutely loved the house, preparation rooms, ceremony area in front of the pond and reception space. Aside from the gorgeous outdoors, Ciria was a pleasure to do business with. Her heart is in every detail of each special day and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help us plan our big day. I, the bride, am from the area, but throughout the year and a half planning process for our wedding, my husband and I have been stationed in Ohio, where he serves in the Air Force. I was afraid that because we weren't close, planning would be hard, but Ciria made it a breeze! She did so much for us and we cannot thank her enough! The food was great, DJ was AMAZING and everything came together perfectly with Ciria's dedication!

Wow. I was extremely suprise of the professionalism of the employees not to mention Ciria. My wedding was planned in 2 weeks, after looking at several places in Houston with out any luck, I decided to call Kemah Gardens, right away Ciria was able to book me, even thought she had 2 other weddings later on that day. I was extremely suprise not to mention a little hesitant knowing she was going to handle 3 weddings that day. The ceremony was so smooth, no rush at all, you could not even tell there was going to be 2 more wedding that day. I simply gave her an idea of what how I wanted the decor and she handled it from there. My 1st impresion was stunning. If was beautiful, just like I dreamed of. She even choose this amazing flower in which I feel in love with. She made my dream a reality. Ceremony was great. A simple but beautiful wedding. The house and brides room was just amazing. I felt like a queen. I felt like I new Ciria for years, that is how amazing this lady is. She will make you feel right at home. DEFINITELY AMAZING PLACE & STAFF.

My husband and I were so pleased at how beautiful our 3:00pm, Sunday afternoon wedding was. The week and day leading up to our ceremony was rainy & wet. Ceria and Kemah Garden's were completely prepared to compensate for the unpredictable Texas winter weather. The ceremony was going to be held under the pavilion where we were to have our reception but just at the last minuite the sun began to shine and Ciria and her crew rushed to redecorate the original ceremony site under the arch. Their personal care and hard work gave my husband and I the most amazing day and experience ever. Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous! Ciria took such great care of our wants and wishes and presented us with so many choices & ideas that we never felt like we had to settle. Her proven experience and good taste guided us through the wedding process with ease. The grounds and dressing areas were exceptional, offering wonderful backgrounds for pictures.

My husband and I were so pleased at how beautiful our 3:00pm, Sunday afternoon wedding was. The week and day leading up to our ceremony was rainy & wet. Ceria and Kemah Garden's were completely prepared to compensate for the unpredictable Texas winter weather. The ceremony was going to be held under the pavilion where we were to have our reception but just at the last minuite the sun began to shine and Ciria and her crew rushed to redecorate the original ceremony site under the arch. Their personal care and hard work gave my husband and I the most amazing day and experience ever. Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous!

The perfect scores directly reflect the type of service and professionalism Kemah Gardens gave my daughter and now, proud son in law. My daughters wedding was a long awaited stepping stone after a life filled with life threatening issues. Needless to say as the mother of the bride, I was beside myself that day, one in which we never knew if it would come or not. It was a beautiful sunset wedding with 50 in attendance (just perfect for a small, quaint gathering). Cidia took care of most of the details and what was not included in the package we chose, she provided good choices of companies that would. We had fireworks after the I DOs, a dove release upon the introduction of the new couple in memory of the brides grandmother, the first dance and tears at the daddy/daughter dance from everyone in attendance. A full meal was served, the cake cut and toasts from the best man. And to end the night, a sparkler send off.
The outside pergola was draped in white with clear lights, the chandelier was lit and crystals hung ever so perfect from the cross beams of the pergola. The interior of the home was decorated for the reception very sophisticated and glamorous which was helped by the beautiful setting of the home. Our photographer was given a heavenly backdrop, perfect for those once in a lifetime shots. The waitstaff were very helpful and accommodating to our every need. We had many compliments on the wedding but mostly how courteous our guests were treated by the staff, and just how absolutely perfect the wedding had turned out! Thank you Kemah Gardens and Cidia, you have a God given talent. Bless you and thank you for making my little girls dreams of her fairy tale wedding come true.

Felicia my daughter was married to Erick Lallemand at Kemah Gardens and they worked wonderfully with us. Her new husband is in the Marines and we had to move there wedding date up with only 3 weeks to arrange the wedding. Ciria the wedding planner rescued us and made everything wonderful, she found a way to solve every issue including little ones that popped up during the morning of the ceremony.

Our Wedding was an evening ceremony and reception, Ciria and her staff were fantastic. From the moment we visited the venue Ciria was great to work with, she respond quickly, always made herself available to us, she went above and beyond to make our Wedding beautiful from the smallest to biggest details. Again she and her staff worked in the most professional manner and did it with a smile and respect. The venue itself is beautiful, well maintained. I even did my Bridal pictures there, and they are just beautiful, the grounds offer such a variety of settings. Our guests just loved Kemah Gardens, we were told many times thru the evening they couldn't remember when they had been to wedding and had so much fun and had room to move around and a place for the their children to also have fun. If you are looking for a venue that offers, professionalism, beauty, attention to detail, family matters, and passion for making your special day very memorable then Kemah Gardens is your place to be. Thank-you Ciria and your staff for a wonderful, beautiful day we will never forget.

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.

The entire planning process was so much easier than I had first imagined. She helped with every step along the way. We ended up with a fairy tale wedding and an amazing reception after. I would definitely recommend Kemah Gardens.

We looked at many venues for weddings including a beautiful venue up in New Waverly but the cost at that venue was prohibitively expensive for us. We found Kemah Gardens and were delighted to find a venue that had all the amenities that the other venues offered at a great value. We were able to work closely with the owner who wanted our wedding to be exactly as we asked for including allowing us to use in stock centerpieces they had for free as well as adding our garland around the pergola on the dockside. We did pay for the upgrade to the pavilion decor but were able to split the cost with another bride which was all arranged by Kemah Gardens.

On the day of the wedding we found the site exquisitely decorated exactly as we asked. Kemah Gardens had had 4 other weddings that weekend but one would not be able to tell as it was totally clean and immaculate for us.

The bride and grooms' room were wonderful addition to their services. The groom had the entire upstairs of the house for the guys to hang out and get ready while the bride had the master suite for preparation. Both areas were delightful and made the preparation time for the wedding easy and relaxing.

The owner, Ciria, was so very accommodating. She had noticed the grandmother of the groom did not have a corsage and quickly made one from the leftover flowers from the bouquets. She also helped to coordinated the processional for the groomsman/bridesmaids and bride/father of bride. I cannot express how easy Ciria was to work with and how much she makes one feels their wedding is the most important wedding to her.

If you are looking for a outdoor venue with all the charm of a Victoria house with outdoor pond with fountain, lovely pavilion and the price that will not break the bank account, look no further. You have found it here.

We had our wedding here in October 2011, and it was a wonderful experience. We chose to go with the all-inclusive package, so we did not have to worry about finding our own vendors. Kemah Gardens provided almost everything that we needed for the day. We only had to find a florist and photographer, and we found them at an open house event. It made planning much easier and less stressful for me and my husband.

The location is only a few minutes from the boardwalk and worth a visit if you are interested in having your ceremony or reception outdoors. I loved the outdoor setting and had the ceremony at sunset. Ciria is very helpful with the planning process, and her and her staff go above and beyond to make sure everything is done to make your wedding day perfect. We would recommend Kemah Gardens because our wedding was beautiful and fun, and we had an amazing day.

I have just booked my wedding venue at Kemah Gardens. Kemah Gardens is a beautiful wedding venue. I looked at many wedding venues for options for my wedding ceremony and reception, Kemah Gardens was the prettiest and the best value for the cost. You have different options to choose from and it is a very reasonable price. The Bridal suite and groom suite are great additions to get ready in. The owner, Ciria, has been very helpful and has made this process hassle free. She took plenty of time to show us around, explain our options and answer any questions we had. She also has many great recommendations for different vendors. I look forward to Kemah Gardens making this a very special day!

I was married at Kemah Gardens in February, 2010. My daughter-in-law and I planned and catered the event ourself, we invited 50 people and had the ceremony outside. Our family took the pictures and they turned out so beautiful because of the backgrounds. There is a spray of water behind the gazebo that made the pictures look heavenly. There was a Cardinal singing during the ceremony. Ciria, the owner of Kemah Gardens, was so helpful. We spent the night with 8 other family members after the ceremony. This house is beautiful and the price is great. My family and friends were very pleased, with Kemah Gardens and it was the happiest experience of my life.

I got married back in April of 2014 at Kemah Gardens. I cannot express enough how perfect this venue is! The landscape, pond, fountain, and arbor make for truly beautiful photos. The house is great to get ready in. Bridal suite, big bathroom with plenty of mirrors, and the entire upstairs just for the groom and his guys. The pavilion is great backup plan if it rains (which Ciria has great mojo to prevent it from raining on wedding!). I am so happy we picked Kemah Gardens as the place to say I do!

I started planning my wedding the second my husband proposed, and when I saw Randy Fenoli was going to be at the Bridal Extravaganza in January, I knew I should look for wedding venues also. We work pipeline so we travel all the time so trying to plan a wedding on the road is very difficult. I was looking online at all the different venues who were attending and immediately Kemah Gardens stood out. I loved the down home feel. I loved the pond. I loved everything about it! We made an appointment to visit the venue in February to take a look and as soon as we pulled in I fell in love. We talked with Ciria and chose the all inclusive package since I wasn't sure where our next job would take us. I had a tasting with Kings BBQ & Cakes by Jula that same day and called to tell Ciria that I chose her venders. We were sent to Oklahoma and I was searching for ideas all over Pinterest and Facebook. Well we got laid off and sent to Odessa, had an accident pulling our 5th wheel and had the transmission go out on the truck and our finances really took a hit, Ciria worked with us and was so understanding. In July my Mother in Law suddenly passed away and I asked to change the flowers I had chosen to her favorite flower and a couple other main changes which she was so understanding. I sent pictures of the decor I chose from the centerpieces to my bouquet. All I had to show up and everything was absolutely PERFECT!!! I could not have done everything the way Ciria and her staff did! My wedding day was beautiful and I wouldn't have changed a thing. I am forever grateful to her and her staff for making my dreams come true!!<3

Extremely nice location. The venue was beautiful inside and out. The staff generously set up the ceremony site with the flowers and chairs including decorations while the wedding party got dressed and ready for the event. We provided the music but they executed it for the ceremony perfectly making sure that it all flowed together and could be heard by everyone. The location is perfect for pictures that you will be treasuring for years. The bride and groom areas were perfect for photos and comfort. I would highly encourge all brides in the area no matter the size of the wedding to check out this venue.

I got married this past June at Kemah Gardens. The wedding was amazing and I loved the scenery, especially since we had an evening wedding we got to use lights on the trees which were really pretty and elegant looking. Ciria, the owner, was very helpful with anything we needed. One thing I loved about Kemah Gardens was the fact that we could pick and choose what other venders we wanted as far as the music, catering, flowers, etc. and that can be very helpful when you are on a budget. I wanted a simple wedding and that is exactly what we got at the price we wanted and it was still gorgeous! We also used the house to get ready that afternoon, the girls were down in the bridal suite, which is plenty big, and the guys stayed upstairs enjoying their alcohol! Not once did we have an issue of seeing each other before it started. We also used the valet service they offer and that was apparently a big hit. Everyone commented on how easy and helpful they were. Overall, I rate my wedding at Kemah Gardens a 10, I couldn’t have had a better day, except maybe if it weren’t so hot but that’s what I get for picking a mid June wedding!

Me and my husband really enjoyed this venue. We looked many places and this place just felt perfect. We loved how our guest had the option of indoors and outdoors. The scenery was beautiful. The owner/ wedding day coordinater Ceria was wonderful. She's so nice and helpful. The food and decorations were really good. The only complaint I had was that DJ was not good, kind of annoying half the time. He went against what I told him I did not want at my reception. He did not play much of the music I requested. Besides him, the wedding and reception was exactly how I imagined it.

The only complaint I had was that DJ was not good, kind of annoying half the time. He went against what I told him I did not want at my reception. He did not play much of the music I requested. Besides him, the wedding and reception was exactly how I imagined it. Read less

Beautiful place to have a wedding! Ciria, the owner, is very helping with planning and suggestions. We had a few issues throughout the planning process in regards to the proposal/contract, where I felt there needed to be more clarity and flexibility, although in all honesty, we were given the option to purchase an all-inclusive package or individualize, which we chose to individualize. It would have been better to go with the all-inclusive option. The Bridal suite and the Grooms Suite are excellent amenities--it gives you privacy to get ready, and a place to hang out, have snacks/drinks, and have fun!, making beautiful memories! And we were allowed to have our own hairdresser, Kristin for Kemah, come to do hair in the bridal Suite. The inside living/kitchen area is a great place to have the cake/punch reception indoors, and allows for people to have a place to come in to get out of the heat, on a hot August day! And the outdoor grounds and back deck, with pagoda and pond with fountain in the background, and beautiful sunset make for a beautiful ceremony site! The new covered pavillion is a wonderful idea in case of rain or to have a dinner/reception--much cooler under there! Also makes for a perfect place for dancing!, nicely decorated with lights and greenery! We had a caterer provide BBQ, a D.J, and a bar! We had a blast! Thanks Ciria!

My daughter was married at Kemah Gardens on March 16, 2013. The event was amazing and there were no glitches at all. Ciria and her staff did a most wonderful job and the ceremony site and pavilion were beautifully decorated. The bride and groom's rooms to dress were outstanding and had so much room to move around and have family and friends in there to help. This whole experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend Kemah Gardens to anyone who is in the planning stages of getting married or having a special event coming up. Ciria was always ready to answer any questions we had leading up to the big day. She and her staff were wonderful. Thanks, Ciria!

Overall we had a great time at Kemah Gardens. The staff helped my husband and me a lot to the wedding colors, sashes, flowers, decorations, ceremony order, catering service suggestions and cake designers. Ciria was very attentive to us and she thoughtfully filled all of our needs. On the day of the wedding, it is predictable that not everything is going to go according to plan, but Ciria was flexible and helped us make the day flow seamlessly and everything worked out just fine. We really enjoyed our experience at Kemah Gardens. It is a beautiful outdoor venue with a lot of greenery that survived even the worst year of a Texas drought. All of our guests complimented the venue and felt very relaxed and at home. We had planned for 100 people and actually had 75 but the venue was just the perfect size for our families.

For those planning future weddings, our "lesson learned" or bit of advice would be to warn you if you choose the all-inclusive package, be aware that the DJ in that package is the bottom of the barrel. Her name is Shawna. She was overcommitted to other jobs and apparently lacked any organizational abilities. Consequently, she irresponsibly delegated her work to be done by inadequate people and if it wasn't for my husband bringing all of our wedding songs on a USB drive, we would not have even had our own ceremony music or first dance music. Otherwise, as long as you communicate your needs to Kemah Gardens and pay a little more for the DJ, you should be covered. All you have to do is take a look at the sample pictures on the website and you'll be convinced that each wedding comes out picture perfect for the wedding album. We highly recommend this venue to you.

Ceremony was absolutely beautiful. By far one of the best venues in the Houston area if you are looking for an outdoor wedding. We were very satisfied with the service that Ciria provided us with. She was very flexible with the wedding package as far as things we did and didn't want. Ceremony went very smoothly and she was there every step of the way. Would definitely recommend her and the venue to friends.

I would like to share this unfortunate experience with Kemah Gardens. I did not end up using this venue for my wedding for the fact that I did not feel comfortable while conducting business with Ciria. The place was beautiful and she seemed kind but simply put it wasn't the right fit for me or my family. After discussing different packages we decided to go with an "all inclusive" package which to me seems that you would not have add anything else to this package but things kept being added to the package which kept raising my overall cost. Ciria kept saying that her calculator was "on drugs". While talking with Ciria she tried to make me feel ok about the cost being added but as the days went by and the more I prayed the more uncomfortable I felt. My deposit had already been put down and nothing we spoke about was secure and I felt rushed to put down my deposit to lock in a date. Needless to say I lost my deposit and even though it says deposit is non-refundable Ciria shared with me a time where she ended up giving a bride her money back and I feel she had no empathy nor sympathy for my situation. This was the first place I stopped when looking for a venue for my wedding and she knew that so I feel like she was trying to take advantage and see just how far she could go with us and to see how much money she could squeeze out of us. I needed to take the time to do more homework for my day to be perfect. Guys PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST!! Kemah Gardens may in fact be a match for many just not for me. With the biblical verses she was quoting I took her to be a good godly Christian woman. I truly pray that Ciria does right by her future clients and that she grows personally as well as professionally.
