Ashton Villa Galveston, Texas Wedding Photography
Lauren and Eric first met in college at Texas A&M University. They became close friends during the summer after taking History together, and kept running into each at the pool. However, following that summer, they lost touch and went their separate ways. Two years later, Lauren and Eric bumped into each other again! “We were both out celebrating July 4th on Rainey Street in Austin and it has been history ever since!”
Eric and Lauren planned a trip to New York City over the Holidays. Lauren had always wanted to visit New York during Christmas to see the lights, the magic of the city, experience the snow in the city, and of course get a look at Times Square. “I had dreamt about being proposed to in New York on a rooftop while snow was falling. A complete dream that I never thought would become reality. It had been discussed that I would love to be in New York to get proposed to, but it never crossed my mind that it would happen.” Lauren’s dream came true!
As the wedding planning commenced, Lauren had in mind a location with a historic feel. “I always wanted an old house that was elegant and had some character.”
That’s exactly what she and Eric discovered with Ashton Villa in Galveston, Texas. A romantic, elegant home on Broadway that is full of historic charm, Ashton Villa has been well preserved and currently functions as a beautiful wedding venue.
180 guests joined the celebration on Lauren & Eric’s wedding day. It was completely like a dream-come-true for Lauren. “Everything seemed to come together perfectly. All my memories are of holding my dad’s hand, walking down the aisle with my dad, looking straight at Eric and saying our vows. I think my heart was overwhelmed with love and excitement! I just couldn’t believe this day was truly here!” Lauren wore an all-lace wedding gown with a plunging neckline and she chose beautiful calla lilies and roses as the flowers. “I couldn’t believe how beautifully decorated the reception was! Walking in and seeing the vision come to life was amazing. It was everything I wanted for a Christmas wedding and more.”
The cake was a simple 3-tiered wedding cake, while the groom’s cake was chocolate with a Texas A&M logo.
They especially enjoyed seeing everyone, having a great time and dancing!
Finally, the newlywed’s were off to an all-inclusive Sandals resort in Grenada for their honeymoon.
