Ashton Gardens Celebrates 10 Years AND a New Wedding Venue!

Photos: Enmuse Photography

A secluded forest. A glass-enclosed chapel looking out upon lush greenery. A storybook landscape of intimate courtyards, murmuring fountains and trellised paths. An elegant ballroom, where floor-to-ceiling windows frame a backdrop of natural beauty, and twinkling chandeliers set the mood for celebration.

If this sounds like your idea of the perfect Houston wedding venue, then let us introduce you to perfection: Ashton Gardens. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Houston’s romantic retreat offers an all-in-one wedding experience. Prepare for your wedding in your private bridal suite, make your way down the aisle to the sound of live vocalists perched in the chapel loft, join your guests for gourmet dining and lively dancing in the candlelit ballroom, adjourn to a tented courtyard (optional) for late-night lounging—Ashton Gardens offers all this and more.

And speaking of more: This summer Ashton Gardens debuts a second site—Ashton Gardens West Houston, where you’ll find all the signature features of Ashton Gardens, in a picturesque Katy-area location.

North or West, ceremony and reception or your choice of either, intimate and cozy or grand and glamorous, in-house decor or custom design: Ashton Gardens is the site you’ve been searching for. See it in person, and start planning the wedding you’ve always dreamed of. Call today to schedule your tour!

Black, White & Blue Wedding at Crystal Ballroom at The Rice by Ever & Anon Photography

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Michael planned the sweetest proposal for his high school sweetheart Sarah. “After dinner, Michael told me to put a blindfold on. He took me to several places around Kingwood where we had special memories: our first kiss, where he first told me he loved me, and our old high school meet-up spot. At each stop, Michael gave me a rose and proceeded to tell me a reason why he loved me at every spot. The final stop was at the golf course where Michael and I had our first date. When I took off the blindfold, he was down on one knee with rose petals scattered around him and a bottle of champagne. After I said “yes”, Michael had gathered both of our families to celebrate,” says bride Sarah. A sweet proposal story like this deserves an even sweeter wedding. Just take a look at the fabulous pictures by Ever & Anon Photography. We can guarantee you’ll be swooning. Best wishes and congrats to the newlyweds!

Pink, Black & Gold Wedding at Hotel ZaZa by D. Jones Photography

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

When Kelsie and Michael were planning their Houston wedding, two words came to mind: classy and fabulous. Their choice of venue? Hotel ZaZa, of course. The Arts District property’s sophistication perfectly meshed with their color palette of black, pink and gold. “I wanted a fun wedding that guests would talk about for years to come,” the bride says. The couple and their guests enjoyed a fun-filled evening of dining and dancing–accompanied by neon sunglasses and glow sticks. The night ended with a BOOM (literally)–when a cannon showered guests with celebratory confetti. Sounds like a blast, right? Check out the lovely photos by D. Jones Photography below. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Peach, Gold & Teal Wedding at The Sam Houston Hotel

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Ladies, you never know where you’ll meet the one… He might just live in the same apartment building as you. Just ask Houston bride Kelly who met Miguel at a community barbeque thrown by a mutual friend. It was only a matter of weeks after meeting that Kelly and Miguel had their first date, and the rest was history. The lovely couple chose the Veranda by *17 at The Sam Houston Hotel which provided the perfect backdrop for their modern-vintage wedding theme. Gold mercury glass centerpieces and warm amber lighting filled the room. Sounds gorgeous, right? Just wait ‘til you see the sweet pictures. Congrats to the newlyweds, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Blush, Ivory & Silver Wedding at Omni Houston Hotel

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

“It was Christmas Eve 2013. Tristan said he had a gift ornament for me hanging on the tree. On the front it read, “Our first Christmas together,” and on the back was a bride and groom. I turned around and he was on one knee asking to spend the rest of our Christmases together,” says Autumn. So sweet, right? A year later, Autumn wed Tristan in a lace Pronovias gown from Parvani Vida Bridal & Formal and celebrated with 165 of their nearest and dearest at the Omni Houston Hotel. Favorite moment? “Dancing with all of our family and friends,” Autumn says. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
