Thank you for the wonderful follow up notes to our Facility Rentals team!
Chelsea and her team were great to work with! They were kind and professional and even on the night of our wedding, they left on the botanical gardens’ lights for all of our wedding guests. It’s such a beautiful venue that we used very little decor for our wedding, there’s just something about the natural beauty of the gardens!
The engagement party we had on Saturday night was PERFECT!! It was all we hoped for and more! The weather, place and even the security guard was more than perfect…thanks for having a place for events such as this.
We will definitely be back for more family events!

We got married at the Myriad Gardens in the Dean Mcgee center. When we saw this beautiful venue, we knew we were going to get married there. Lucky for us, the rental was very affordable. We worked with Chelsea and she gave us a tour of the venue and was very helpful. Seeing two large empty rooms, it was difficult for me to picture my wedding. She sent me pictures of previous weddings that had been held there and helped me decide on a layout. We visited many times before the big day to plan and space things. The staff was always helpful and friendly. The day before the wedding, we were allowed to set up the wedding (since there wasn’t an event that day). The rehearsal was held there free of charge. Even when we were setting up for the wedding, they let us borrow a power drill to set up our wedding arch. The day of the wedding, there was an event manager there to make sure I had everything I needed. He met my every request. For the before wedding photos, the Chrystal Bridge was open and we were allowed to take photos there. After the wedding, the bridge was closed, but the event manager, Michelle, opened it up for my husband and I to take our photos. We were so impressed by the helpfulness and kindness of the Myriad Gardens staff! My husband and I are so happy that we decided to have our wedding at the Myriad Gardens!

On behalf of ReMerge and our recent eight graduates of the program, thank you for donating your time and space for photography and videography. The graduates were so touched by your generosity, and were all so excited to be in the Gardens – many for the very first time. It was also the first time many of the mothers had family portraits taken. The family portraits have brought so much happiness and lifelong memories to them. They are all truly beautiful and we cannot thank you enough for offering your lovely gardens. They provided beautiful backgrounds for lovely photos.
A belated but none the less heartfelt THANK YOU to you and the whole team at Myriad Gardens for helping to make my son’s 3rd Birthday Party awesome! The space was of course, gorgeous and fun as always. But the help we got from folks on site with parking and moving our party supplies was just awesome. The guy with the golf cart saved my life!! And, bonus, we had a celebrity sighting! My son ran over to this very tall man and said, “I know you. You’re Nick Collison.” And, sure enough, it was. Everyone had a great time. Again, thank you so much. We had a blast!
I want to THANK YOU and your other staff members for making our wedding so memorable and pretty. The staff went over and beyond to make everything work out. It was such a pleasure meeting you and Michel and I would highly recommend the gardens and the staff for anyone wanting to have a special event. Thank You again and have a good day.

Dear Myriad Gardens team!
In the spring of 2012, my then-boyfriend, Josh, and I visited the Festival of the Arts. We were walking hand-in-hand across the bridge overlooking the Myriad Gardens’ pond when he told me for the first time he knew I was “the one”. So, when he made good on that declaration less than six months later, the Myriad Gardens was one of the first places we thought of for our nuptials. Even when we looked at other venues, the Gardens were always in the back of our minds. So, despite the austere looking winter skies and sleepy plants, we booked the water stage in January of 2013, weeks after becoming engaged.
From the onset, the staff was incredibly easy to work with. A few months into our planning, there was a changing of the guard, so to speak, but the team at the Myriad Gardens never missed a beat. Anything we needed; be it an email confirmation, informational phone call or even a late night tour of our reception area was provided with no hesitation. One of the event coordinators was always present for any vendor meetings we attended there and they both came prepared to answer questions regarding any eventuality.
When the big day finally arrived, the grounds were a picture of perfection. If anyone thinks you can’t do a gorgeous outdoor wedding with a chic downtown reception they are sorely mistaken. With a little uplighting and the right décor, our crack team of design experts was able to transform the Dean A. McGee Center into the perfect setting for a posh cocktail reception. The downtown OKC skyline provided a stunning backdrop to the already scenic gardens and employees were on hand that evening to assure everything went off without a hitch. Well, except the one…
At the end of the day, we could not have been more pleased with our experience. The setting was breathtaking, the cost was minimal and the coordinators and other staff were not only easy to work with, but also enjoyable. Thanks to the efforts of everyone involved, we were able to realize our ideal wedding and because of that the Myriad Gardens will always be near and dear to our hearts.
