Outdoor Weddings at McGovern Centennial Gardens
by Miranda Fogel November 2
Stretching over an expansive eight-acre property, the lush grounds of the just three-year-old McGovern Centennial Gardens are of the more ideal Houston area locales for a proper garden wedding! Set in the heart of the Museum District, the sprawling space provides a scenic nature view with enticing elements such as an accessible walking path to a waterfall and trellis paths with overhanging blooms and greenery. The space proves to be well-maintained year round, with beaconing photo ops from nearly every angle. Ten distinct areas of interest provide a variety of backdrops ideal for a setup that you and your guests are sure to enjoy; those to note include a large fountain area, a Japanese-style pavilion, a sweet rose garden and a more desert-like vegetation area ideal for the more bohemian bride. There are multiple options for specific rental areas to ensure a more private experience in the gardens, with modern, glass enclosed structures perfect for holding an afternoon or early evening ceremony. Of course, hours extending as late as 8pm in the summer create opportunities for the most marvelous sunset backdrops! Be sure to check out their approved vendors list and reservation site to begin your booking process. No matter your style, we’re sure these gardens will help bring to life the outdoor wedding of your dreams!
