Las Velas is Houston’s premier location to host wedding ceremonies, receptions, business, and social functions. With courtyards full of blooming bougainvillea, hibiscus, and other greenery, Las Velas truly presents itself as a “a world away.”The indirect light and an abundance of candles transform this already beautiful facility into an overwhelmingly romantic atmosphere, which is represented in it’s name Las Velas, which translates to “the candles.” “Once the gates close and the visitor is tucked inside, he or she is transported thousands of miles away to a Latin American and Mediterranean fantasy. All traces of Houston are gone. Every visual angle with the high walls is picture perfect – a romantic arched gateway in this direction, a splashing fountain surrounded by rich foliage straight ahead, a playful curving stairway in the other direction."Here, a massive mantle. There, a vast expanse of Italian marble just right for dancing.” **
Las Velas is not your “normal” ballroom. With its unique three-room layout, and two outdoor courtyards, we guarantee your guests will have an incredible experience, different from any they have attended. Transported back hundreds of years to the more “romantic” times, brides feel as if they are attending their fairy-tale wedding. It’s hard to believe that such a place exists in Houston, TX. Our distinctive layout allows us to present you with the ideal setting and flexibility needed for a successful company event, meeting, or celebration. Las Velas is sure to offer the most ornate architecture and romantic setting in Houston. Nestled in the heart of Houston’s Galleria area, we are proud to offer our facility seven days a week.
