Ashelynn Manor | Magnolia, Texas
Ashelynn Manor in Magnolia, Texas is a beautiful venue. It’s a gem in a quaint little part of the metro Houston area, and it’s a fantastic place to host a wedding.
I found this out on October 1st as I came back to the venue to photograph Dakota’s lovely wedding celebration with the love of her life, Ryan.
The happy couple had a love-filled ceremony and celebration at Ashelynn Manor in front of adoring family members and friends. Even though it had rained hard early in the day, everything cleared up in time for photos around the grounds of Ashelynn Manor and in time for the ceremony itself.
A fun part of the day came right before the first look. Ryan’s best man secretly dressed up in a wedding dress as a surprise. Ryan definitely got a kick out of the joke when he saw his friend instead of his bride-to-be.
Shortly after that, though, Ryan did see Dakota for the first time on their wedding day. It was a touching moment that was a delight to photograph.
For the ceremony, Dakota + Ryan tied the knot inside the chapel at Ashelynn Manor. Their family also gave them an impromptu serenade of “Stand By Me”, which came as a total surprise to the bride and groom.
Once the wedding was completed, it was time to move into the reception hall for a lively party. Dakota + Ryan enjoyed the good food prepared by the staff at Ashelynn Manor and then danced the night away with their guests.
When it was time to say goodbye, Dakota + Ryan made their exit to the illumination of sparklers. It was a beautiful way to cap off a beautiful day.
I want to thank Dakota + Ryan so much for having me come out to Magnolia, Texas to photograph their lovely wedding celebration at Ashelynn Manor. I wish nothing but the best for them in their lives together.
I also want to thank their family and friends for the warm hospitality shown to me throughout the wedding day. A word of thanks to the staff at Ashelynn Manor for running such a fantastic venue also needs to be extended.
I’d also love to talk with anyone looking to book photography for their upcoming wedding or elopement celebration. Please visit my wedding photography pricing page or fill out the form below to request a personalized quote.
