Las Velas


Las Velas represents the grandeur, elegance and serenity of a past long forgotten. With courtyards full of blooming bougainvillea, hibiscus and greenery, Las Velas truly presents itself as 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 its name Las Velas, which translates to "the candles."

Reminiscent of 17th and 18th century villas, Las Velas's beautiful gardens, grand entranceway, spectacular fountains, imposing fireplaces, decorative wrought-iron and hand-carved stonework provide an unforgettable setting for your special day. 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.

Client Testimonials

“We were blown away by Las Velas. Ever since our first interaction with the Venue Manager, Elmira Frias, we have been completely at ease and confident in her and her staff to deliver the best service. The venue is so beautiful, intimate and gorgeous we knew going in that we had made the right choice. The dedication and service that Elmira and her staff put in on the day of our wedding was beyond outstanding. We had the picture perfect wedding and we owe it all to Las Velas! You cannot go wrong with Las Velas. We wish we could get married again just so we can work with Elmira and have it at Las Velas again! 10 stars!”- Corinne
