Former Texas A&M schoolmates Lauren and Rex met at a College Station bar, both there to watch Houston rapper Kirko Bangz perform. “Yes, it’s true,” the bride recounts, “nothing sets the mood more for falling in love than the sweet, romantic melodies, ‘Drank In My Cup’ and ‘Keep It Trill.'” Yet, fall in love they did, and in love they have stayed, Lauren praising Rex for “his ability to make everything in life fun,” and Rex noting “how easy everything is with her.” Rex proposed to Lauren in front of both of their families, so it’s only natural that family would play a central role in their fall 2019 blush and gold wedding at fairytale wedding setting Ashton Gardens West. From her processional down the aisle to the same music that had accompanied her mother’s own wedding processional, to the sleeve of her mother’s wedding dress that master florist Dream Bouquet used to wrap the bouquet, to the classic songs played at the reception, “The entire day was a constant reminder to us of the examples set before us by our parents, and the promises we were making to each other,” bride Lauren says. Please join us in wishing this gorgeous couple a lifetime of love!

Who says Houston couples can’t have the feel of an outdoor wedding venue but with the climate-controlled comfort of the great indoors?
If this is the wedding vibe you’re going for, we’d like to introduce you to Ashton Gardens, which seamlessly blends the beauty of nature’s bounty with classic ballroom wedding ambiance.
Ashton Gardens is actually two nearly identical venues (one in North Houston, one in West Houston).
Both offer a blend of forested splendor and romantic ballroom chic that’s a perfect fit for couples who want the feel of an outdoor wedding venue, but without the unpredictability of Mother Nature. Say, “I do,” in front of a backdrop of soaring windows looking out on lush trees, in Ashton Gardens’ lovely on-site chapel, with its country-church feel, and state-of-the-art technology. Then venture into the venue’s party space, enclosed in windows for wonderful sense of serenity, and accented with crystal chandeliers for an even more wonderful sense of…celebration!

Talk to in-house wedding experts, and learn more about the venue’s full-service wedding packages, which include ceremony and reception space, rentals, dance floor, lighting, and fine cuisine.

Take a moment to schedule a tour at your convenience…and make sure to tell them you found them on the Houston Wedding Blog! Happy planning, loves.
