History of Ashton Gardens
Ashton Gardens was created in 2005 with a focus on providing an exceptional guest experience. While most wedding venues offer services in a single location, Ashton Gardens offers 4 locations, including Atlanta, North Houston, West Houston, and Dallas/Fort Worth area.
Ashton Gardens is full of a wide variety of amenities that help make this wedding venue one of the best around.
Having a standalone bridal suite is essential in our opinion. On the wedding day, rooms quickly become cluttered with items, some not being particularly aesthetically pleasing in photos and videos. The bridal suite at Ashton Gardens offers plenty of privacy, which is sure to provide you with peace of mind on your wedding day.You will also be pleased to know that the bridal suite of Ashton Gardens also offers a dedicated makeup lounge, this is extremely beneficial during the wedding day as the hairstylist and makeup artist won’t have to look for a getting ready spot. Organization during your wedding day helps tremendously, and by having a makeup lounge, you and your bridesmaids won’t have to be scattered about.
When it comes to restrooms, Ashton Gardens has you covered, the bridal suite has its own private restrooms so that you will not have to worry about leaving the bridal suite. If you are in a relaxing mood, you can enjoy the stylish and chic lounge offered in the bridal suite, which also makes for great bridal party photos.
In addition to a dedicated bridal suite, Ashton Gardens has not skipped out on it its grooms! Grooms and groomsmen will be able to relax and enjoy a spacious groom’s suite on the wedding day. Ashton Gardens rises above other wedding venues by understanding that grooms enjoy chilling out on the wedding day, and the best way to do that is with a TV.
When it comes to photos of the groom and groomsmen getting ready, a non-cluttered environment works best as it avoids any distraction. Ashton Gardens allows for perfect groom prep photos with its full-length mirrors and top grain leather furniture.
By being an all-inclusive wedding venue, when you choose Ashton Gardens as your wedding venue, you also get to enjoy a stunning on-site all-season chapel that incorporates nature by offering beautiful forest views. Once you make your grand entrance through the wooden mahogany doors, you will quickly notice white oak timber wood frames adorning the ceiling, adding to the overall elegant architecture. As you make your way down the long center 62-foot aisle, to the 350 square foot alter, you can’t help but think about what it will be like on your actual wedding day!When it comes to guest seating, the chapel can easily seat 300 guests, with additional seating to accommodate up to 350, which should cover a majority of weddings.
