Houston boasts a variety of picturesque locations for bridals, engagement and wedding portraits, but our favorite city’s skyline is an undeniably stunning backdrop. Daughter of Houston’s Mayor Turner, influencer and blog writer Ashley Turner, recently said I do, and her bridals are anything but ordinary. A fairytale-inspired wedding gown (complete with a sweeping ruffled train), a long lace veil and a bejeweled bridal headpiece completed Ashley’s glam look while the setting sun cast the dreamiest glow on the tall downtown buildings behind her.

Chandler, a dancer, always gave Stephen, a singer and songwriter, a hard time because he had never written a song about her. Until one day the song Chandler had patiently been waiting for, finally got written, and played, when Stephen proposed to her. Chandler says the biggest challenge they faced while planning their wedding was having to plan it all in just three months, but they pulled it off beautifully at Briscoe Manor! Notes the bride: “We wanted our wedding to be big and have all of our close family and friends there to celebrate us, but we also wanted it to be simple and elegant. It was a beautiful combination of both of those things.”

Following a serene ceremony in Briscoe Manor’s limestone chapel, the couple joined 275 guests for an energetic reception where the bride and her dad surprised their guests with a choreographed dance! Favorite moments for the bride included, “Getting ready with all of my favorite girls, seeing Stephen for the first time as I walked down the aisle, dancing with my dad and getting to celebrate on the dance floor with everyone we love so much.”

Keep scrolling and join us in celebrating this beautiful Houston couple’s simple elegant wedding at Briscoe Manor, wonderfully captured by Emily Figurelli Photography. Congratulations, Chandler & Stephen!
