Classic White and Green Ashton Gardens Wedding With Bonus Fun Proposal Story!

Monday, August 21st, 2017

Mosquitos. Guacamole. A clever ruse. Oh, how we love a zany proposal story: “I told Shane I wanted to wait until I officially had a degree to be engaged,” says Joanna. “He waited exactly a week after I graduated. We had talked about going on a hike, and finally planned it for that weekend. While on our hike there there were so many mosquitos it looked like a dark fog was following us. We ran out of the woods with about 30 bites each laughing so hard (with me not realizing his proposal plan was falling apart). We found an area that was mosquito-free, sat down for a picnic, and then Shane told me he had something for me. I got extremely suspicious that he was proposing. I thought to myself, ‘Shane can’t propose with a tub of guacamole (my favorite) sitting in between us.’ I start desperately moving the food to the other side of the bench, and he pulls out a PAIR OF EARRINGS. Five minutes later he drops down on one knee and proposes. He wanted to surprise me, the earrings made sure that happened. We met our family and close friends for dinner later and celebrated our love…and the fact that his plan to surprise me actually worked!” How could we not fall in love with this sweet young couple’s love, and the lovely Ashton Gardens wedding that celebrated it? Congratulations, Joanna and Shane, and thank you so much for sharing your humor and enthusiasm with us, and our readers!

Houston Wedding Venues We Love: Ashton Gardens

Monday, March 6th, 2017

Not surprisingly, we get tons of inquiries from to-be-wed couples searching for a venue where they can celebrate their wedding from traditional ceremony to fabulous reception to after-party to sendoff. And we’re always excited to let these couples—and, honestly, anyone searching for a beautiful wedding venue—know about Ashton Gardens. This truly lovely gem of a celebration space, tucked into lush, forested grounds that are viewable from vast picture windows pretty much anywhere you look, is one of our absolute favorites.

We checked in with Ashton Gardens’ Ashley Love (yes, really her name, and yes, it’s perfect) to ask what she thinks makes this unique venue such a coveted spot for Houston-area weddings, and her answer was simple: “It’s our signature chapel,” she told us. “It’s one of a kind. With floor-to-ceiling windows and stunning forest scenery as your ceremony backdrop, every single guest can enjoy an outside view from the comfort of indoors.”

Ditto the venue’s ballroom, where you’ll also find—you guessed it—soaring windows looking out upon hundreds and hundreds of towering green trees.

Oh—and did we mention that Ashton Gardens has not one but TWO locations (both with the same glass-enclosed chapel, knockout landscape views and OMG-this-is-SO-GOOD reception cuisine), in West and North Houston, for the utmost in convenience?

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Sarah & Robbie ~ April 4, 2014

He proposed at Walt Disney World. They honeymooned on a Disney cruise. Do we sense a theme here? Absolutely, says bride Sarah, who wore a Disney-princess-worthy tiara for her Ashton Gardens wedding to high-school sweetheart Robbie. The pair, both of them former Walt Disney World employees, treated guests to such Disney-inspired delights as a signature “True Love’s Kiss” martini, featuring a pink-sugared rim, and a choreographed first dance to a waltz taken from Disney World’s Wishes Fireworks Spectacular. The bride’s most treasured memory? “Our special unity candle,” Sarah says. “We invited all of our guest who have helped shape our lives to join us in the lighting of the candle. It made for a beautiful and touching ceremony to make eye contact with each row of guests.”

Golden, Ivory, and Plum Rustic Wedding at Ashton Gardens by Joshua Tyi Photography

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Kayla and Billy met during her freshman year at East Texas Baptist University at a mentoring event. “He came over to talk to me and I was too shy. He tried and tried all night and I still wouldn’t talk to him,” says Kayla. Although she did not give Billy any attention at the event, as soon as she went home Kayla did what every girl would do: told her roommate everything! They soon started a Facebook search for Billy and sent a friend request, which led to messaging and eventually dating. Billy set up a sweet proposal adventure for Kayla while riding a four-wheeler on his best friend’s land. The lovebirds read through their journal and scriptures underneath a tree adorned with candles and mason jars (AWW!). Before Kayla could get through the second page, Billy was on one knee ready to propose. If you think their proposal story is sweet, just wait ‘til you see the gorgeous photos of their rustic-chic wedding at Ashton Gardens! Thanks Joshua Tyi for the amazing photos and congratulations to the lovely newlyweds!
