Thank you for the wonderful follow up notes to our Facility Rentals team!
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.
