Discovery Green: I DO Love You!

It’s wedding season, and it seems that Discovery Green is in the minds and hearts of many Houstonians. This photo was taken recently of a beautiful proposal by one of our crafty (and romantic!) park goers. She said yes! I’ve heard several wonderful stories of proposals at Discovery Green, including the guy who got down on one knee in the middle of the ice rink. His girlfriend said yes and everyone around them started clapping. Another guy left a trail of rose petals to the listening vessels, then when his girlfriend sat in the one opposite him he serenaded her with a song and popped the question!

As I type this, chairs are being set out on the main stage for a wedding this evening. The view of the city skyline at dusk is so beautiful at Discovery Green – what an incredible backdrop! I’m looking forward to catching a glimpse of the bride and groom. Laura, one of our medics, plans on having her wedding at Discovery Green. She says it’ll most likely be around the Grace Event Lawn surrounded by the beautiful gardens. There’s something truly special about working in a place that is so magical to so many people, and that holds such an important place in their hearts and memories!
