Director of Sales & Planning
Brittney joined the Ashton Gardens team in 2013 with over 8 years of experience in the hospitality industry, six of those years spent on the operations side of private events. After graduating from Lone Star College in 2009, she realized her eagerness to make each event special was not just an interest but her passion in life. Aside from Brittney’s well-rounded knowledge of the hospitality industry, her desire to help make a bride’s dreams come true makes her key member of Ashton Gardens’ sales team. Brittney’s favorite part of the wedding experience is hearing about each bride and groom’s unique engagement and the excitement they have to plan their wedding!

Director of Operations
Raudel De Lorena
With over a decade of hospitality know-how and countless accolades and honors, adding Raudel to the Houston West team was an easy decision. His all-encompassing background in weddings and special events helped lay the ground work for his illustrious career. His work in high-end hotels, country clubs and exclusive dining establishments inspired his path and led him to make the move from California to Texas in the fall of 2015. In the time he has committed to the hospitality industry, Raudel has successfully managed hundreds of staff members, countless events and thousands of guests. Raudel’s hobbies include traveling, going on runs with his two Siberian huskies and spending time with his family.
