From the getting ready moments and first look before the ceremony to the reception inside the Hacienda and more, this was such a fun celebration of love that we’re sure you’ll enjoy every single moment of it!

Before we hop into this awesome wedding day, we would first like to welcome anyone that may be stopping by our blog for the first time! As mentioned above, our wedding blog includes an assortment of different topics, including vendor selection tips, advice on picking out a venue and as you’ll see below, inside looks at past weddings held at Madera. Our venue, Madera Estates, is a luxury wedding venue and event space located in Conroe, TX. Over the years, we’ve been honored to have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of engaged couples as they plan their wedding day! With that all being said, it is now time to provide a glimpse at Ashley and Guillermo’s wedding!

Special thanks to all of the vendors that helped bring this awesome wedding day to life, including the talented Ivan Garcia Studio for all of the photos featured throughout this blog post!

All the Details

To begin this blog, let’s first take a peek at the Hacienda, which is where the reception would soon be held.

From the candles and table numbers to the beautiful floral arrangements (wonderful work by Carter’s Florist) and the rest of the decor, it’s safe to say everything was looking picture-perfect for a celebration that was quickly approaching.

Getting Ready Moments

Without a doubt, one of many memorable parts of your wedding day will include those special getting ready moments with your besties.

At Madera Estates, there are two “getting ready” suites – the Champagne Suite and the Whiskey Lounge. How stunning does Ashley’s wedding gown look?!

The Champagne Suite includes plenty of room for getting glammed up, relaxing with your besties and of course, snapping a few pics too! Simple Beauty Artistry handled all of the glam for this wedding celebration!

Meanwhile, as mentioned above, the other “getting ready” suite is called the Whiskey Lounge.

With the ceremony just around the corner, Guillermo and the guys were busy getting all spruced up for the big day!

And it’s safe to say that everyone was all smiles, including the groom!

Pre-Ceremony First Look

Currently planning every detail for your wedding day? Have you considered incorporating a first look? Without a doubt, they create the most adorable and memorable moments! Ashley and Guillermo’s first look was a perfect example of just that!

Another benefit of having a first look is the fact that it allows you flexibility on when you’ll take some of your more formal wedding photos!

Ivan Garcia Studio did a wonderful job of utilizing this time to capture so many amazing photos of these soon-to-be newlyweds.

Included in these pre-ceremony photos were ones with the wedding party in front of the Grand Fireplace, which serves as the signature backdrop piece for plenty of weddings at Madera Estates and that would also be the case for this outdoor ceremony!

Wouldn’t you agree that everyone looks excited for the day’s festivities to get underway?

One last photo of Guillermo and the guys, and now we are ready to make these two Mr and Mrs!

Time to Say “I Do”

Who is ready to see this couple tie the knot? As we mentioned earlier in this blog post, this outdoor wedding would take place in front of the Grand Fireplace.

Surrounded by family and friends, the weather was just right for another beautiful ceremony!

By the way, how awesome are some of these photo angles featured below? If you need any ideas to share with your photographer, these would definitely be good ideas to remember!

And before you know, after exchanging vows and saying their “I Do’s,” Ashley and Guillermo are officially husband and wife! Congratulations!

With the ceremony now complete, these newlyweds will have time to capture some pre-reception photos before heading to the Hacienda to celebrate with their guests.

How cool is this vintage car that Ashley and Guillermo included in their photos?!

Just a few more photos with the wedding party and then it’s time for the celebrating to begin!

Indoor Wedding Reception at Madera Estates

As mentioned earlier, this wedding reception would take place inside the ballroom at Madera Estates, which we call the Hacienda.

With Churrascos Catering providing the food for this wedding, everyone would definitely enjoy something delicious!

From the beautiful floral arrangements and stunning decor to the crystal chandeliers and more, everything looked absolutely stunning!

After making their grand entrance, Ashley and Guillermo enjoyed their first dance together as Mr and Mrs!

After a fun night of dancing (kudos to the awesome DJ at this celebration, DJU Entertainment), the couple took the time to have one final dance on their wedding day in the empty ballroom!

While Ashley and Guillermo were enjoying this dance inside the Hacienda, their guests lined up outside for the closing sparkler send-off!
