Fairy Tale Photography recently had the opportunity to photograph an event at a venue in Dallas, Texas, called The Dragon on Hall. It was a beautiful venue with much to offer those looking for wedding or event spaces. Scroll down to check out the scenic atmosphere of this place!
Inside, there are some tastefully-decorated rooms for getting ready, if you’re a bride or groom, or just for lounging and chatting with guests, if you’re hosting an event.
A spacious, well-lit room for dining is available–we loved the floors, with their shimmering gold look.
There is also a stage where musicians can serenade your guests. The huge reception pavilion has plenty of room for banquet tables and chairs. We are loving those Chiavari Chairs!
We ADORED all of the the fun lighting options available through this venue’s light-system. Purple, Pink, Blue, you name it.
P.S., their food is STUNNING. Would you look at these apps? Super fun, and even tastier than they look.
This was seriously such a fun atmosphere to be a part of, and we were honored to document this event! If you’re interested in hosting an event here too, check out The Hall On Dragon here!
Ashley and Raycham got married in January of 2017, and we at Fairy Tale Photography had the privilege of capturing their intimate Wedding Photography at Ashton Gardens in Texas. It was so fun to get to see Ashley and Raycham’s personalities shine throughout the getting-ready process and during their heartfelt vows. Ashley and Raycham have been a couple for over 11 years, and it was beautiful to witness their union. We are proud to support the LGBTQ movement by documenting their same-sex wedding for them to remember forever.
I loved the blues and greens in their decor, accented with delicate silvers and crystals, and how they came through in the photos below. Each detail was so personalized and special–down to the fun signage they included.
Raycham and Ashley’s dresses also both came from different shops, and they suit them so perfectly!
Ashton Gardens is a stunning venue with beautiful natural lighting and lots of tastefully designed open space. Their staff is always accommodating, and with the rest of Ashley and Raycham’s vendors, we all worked together as an awesome team! Check out the complete vendor list below!
Wedding photography is always a joy for me and my team in both California and Texas, and we are constantly looking for opportunities to expand our repertoires by capturing unique wedding traditions and cultures. Even if you haven’t seen your type of wedding cultures or traditions captured in our portfolio yet, please don’t assume we wouldn’t be super excited to capture your special day too! Give us a call and tell us whatcha got!

Santhra and Bobby picked two of my favorite locations in San Francisco, California for their Engagement Session! My mother and I used to have tea in the gardens on Tuesdays when I was a little girl and going back there to capture great memories for someone else was such a treat. Cannot wait to see their wedding photos in Texas this June!!!
Justin and Nyshele met at 15 years old and instantly bonded over a common love- baseball. This couple stands out so much to us, the way they are with each other… there is no doubt that they will live a long and happy life, always putting the other first. The couple is from Las Vegas but wanted a destination wedding, 130 friends and family celebrated at Leoness Cellars. Located in Temecula Valley, the enchanting venue is bright and comfortable. Vibrant greens of harvest season paired with a s’mores bar are the perfect features for an outdoorsy couple! Pops of red roses, dancing on a cloud, and late-night burgers really made Justin and Nyshele’s day stand out! Check out the “first look” with the bridesmaids!!!!

Fairy Tale Photography had the pleasure of shooting at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and the historical Westin San Jose for Daniel and Jennifer’s special day! Their elegance matched the Westin’s to create a stunning wedding. This venue exudes luxury and sophistication with historical features that only enhance its beauty and charm. The timeless hotel provided a classic backdrop for this couple’s wedding reception photos that they’ll cherish forever! We especially loved the night shots at the park across the street, such great backdrops.

Erin & Eric met exactly 4 years ago the day of their wedding at San Francisco City Hall. These adorable Chicago Cub’s fans brought a sweet charm to the beautiful historic building. With gold accents and gray stone throughout, San Francisco City Hall’s simple elegance let the couple’s love speak for itself. Erin & Eric’s five minute ceremony was both fun and incredibly endearing. The emotion in their wedding photos and the love in their eyes has definitely touched our hearts! We will never forget their special day!

The rustic white barn leaves room for customization, so you can chic it up, or leave it simply elegant. If you’re looking for a stunningly unique venue with sophistication and romance, White Sparrow Barn is the location for you!

David and Rob had a beautiful, intimate wedding ceremony and reception in the backyard of their home. Their wedding was so gorgeous and romantic! Their ceremony and reception was small, and personal, which only added to the romantic atmosphere! One of our favorite details about this day was the couples initials carved into their tree! So sweet!
