Ashton Villa wedding photography in Galveston, Texas
The wedding photos I took of Katie & Jason in Galveston, Texas a few years ago at the historic Ashton Villa, are some of my personal favorites. When a couple like this vows their love for one another in such a historic setting, it accentuates that this union is history in the making!
The 1859 Ashton Villa in Galveston is a Texas Historical Landmark.
Built by Colonel James Moreau Brown, the three story Victorian mansion with Italianate style was the home of James and Rebecca Brown & their five children. Brown’s wife named the home in honor of her ancestor, Lt. Isaac Ashton, a hero of the U.S. Revolutionary War. The home has a rich history of social entertainment, surviving hurricanes and the American Civil war.
Ornate architecture with gold filigree and a beautiful staircase grace the first floor of Ashton Villa. A grand, spacious Ballroom was added on to Ashton Villa in the 1920’s by the Brown family which includes a dramatic chandelier, a stage and caterer’s prep room – making Ashton Villa an even more elegant setting for bridal portraits, wedding photography, weddings, receptions, luncheons, parties, dinners, or meetings.
Ashton Villa was saved from demolition in 1971 by the Galveston Historical Foundation, which restored and refurnished Ashton Villa with much of the original furnishings and artwork. Ashton Villa in Galveston, Texas is a beautiful, historical venue to consider for your wedding ceremony and reception!
