Ashton Gardens Houston-North was a dream! My wedding was more than my husband and I could have imagined. Our coordinator, Erika Berry, made everything so stress-free that I was truly able to focus on the happiest day of my life. My friends and family are still talking about how gorgeous the venue was. I highly recommend this venue to anyone seeking a beautiful wedding location!
I was married in June at the North location and it was the most pleasant experience we could have ever dreamed of. Not only was the venue the most beautiful we had seen but the customer service we received was amazing. Our coordinator, Erika made everything run so smoothly and left me without a single worry on the day of the wedding. Throughout the entire process, everyone's communication was timely and thorough. I really appreciate Ashton Gardens for making my wedding day so perfect !
First, our wedding day had zero issues! This was because our event coordinator met with us many times before the event and was incredible day of. Erika our event coordinator is a rock star. She is an incredible professional who is attentive, personable, and surpassed my expectations with her high communication skills. She even got me a cupcake on my birthday when we had our last meeting. This shows her love for her position and care for her clients. The food: AMAZING! The meal will taste like a fancy restaurant. We opted for the Chicken Du Chef, Potato Crusted Salmon, and the Mac n Cheese bar. The chef is very accommodating and knows their stuff. Don't be afraid to ask for any differences or extras. They have many packages but you can always create your own menu, that's what we did. The waitstaff is very friendly and professional as well. The venue: BREATHTAKING. Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was. We didn't even use a florist because of how pretty the rooms are. This venue is worth the money. Looking back, we would do it all over again and even spoke about doing an anniversary event at Ashton Gardens in our future. Thank you to the staff for making our day incredibly special. We love you Ashton Gardens!
When deciding on a wedding venue we read many reviews, and one name continually stood out among the rest-- Erika Berry. After months of planning and a successful wedding, we now know why. Even before we were assigned Erika, based on our interactions with several coordinators, my husband, mother, and I hoped we would get Erika. We were so excited when we received our first email from her letting us know she would be in charge of coordinating our wedding. A review is not enough to express just how blessed we are to have had Erika as our coordinator. She is very detail-oriented and ensured everything ran just as planned. She responds quickly to emails and is very flexible to change. She has such a bubbly personality which made it fun to work with and welcomed all questions and concerns. We loved her jokes and appreciated her ability to make otherwise stressful planning moments stress-free. She is a bustling queen and is so easy to make conversation with. She worked with us to ensure that we had sufficient time to rehearse the wedding the day before and was there early the day of to give us extra time to get ready. The day of, she made sure we stuck to the schedule without being overbearing and allowed us to visit with our guests and enjoy our special day. Many other guest have since approached us to share how sweet Erika was to them. My in-laws lost their keys in their car, and were the last to leave the venue, and she waited for them without showing any sort of frustration for delaying her. Bottom line is she makes a hell of a coordinator and we are so grateful for her. Like many coordinators, I’m sure she’s done this a thousand times— and her experience shows it— but what makes Erika special is her ability to make you feel like your wedding was the best wedding she’s ever coordinated. Her investment in not just your special day, but you as individuals is what sets her apart from many. We loved Erika and Ashton Gardens and would recommend her and the venue to anyone!
This review is simply to help others in the important decision of choosing your venue for your wedding day. Let me start with saying I do not regret using Ashton Gardens. My wedding was wonderful and picturesque. ! However, one bride to another, I am going to air out the headaches that occurred along the way, and after the wedding. 1) Please be aware and simply ask if and when you will be able to use the bridal suite on the day of your wedding. I was told I would not have access to Ashton Gardens until 4:30 pm (with a 6:00 pm wedding) because of guests touring the facility. Honestly, their main focus was getting more business, not making my day as special as possible. 2) They do respond to emails in a somewhat timely manner (it may take up to 5 days). However, it can take multiple emails to get a simple answer about one thing. 3) If and when something goes wrong, do not expect an apology, or for Ashton Gardens to accept any responsibility. My menu was drastically changed without my knowledge. We were missing the vegetables and potatoes. When my mother emailed to inquire about the missing food we were told that these sides were actually not included in the meal we selected- a mistake our wedding coordinator made. Once they realized this mistake, they corrected the menu; however, they did not notify me. A simple phone call would have sufficed. Honestly, I think they hoped I wouldn't notice during my final wedding meeting, and I didn't. It all the pre-wedding madness it's bound to happen. However, why would I think my wedding coordinator would change my menu without checking with me? Their response to the missing food: “we’ll you signed off on it so… not our problem.” Very unprofessional. I would like to make a note that we were refunded for the price of the missing sides. Please know that this was only done after reaching as high up as possible on the employment ladder of Ashton Gardens to complain. They seemed more interested in defending each other than hearing constructive feedback from a recent customer. Had it been up to the Director of Sales and Planning no compensation, or even an apology would have been offered for the mistake. 4) I had to constantly double check my BEO and all billing. During our process we went through multiple drafts in which different details and pricing were not correct. For example, we saw we were being charged $8 per cocktail instead of $7 per cocktail. Had we not caught this slip, we would have spend hundreds of extra dollars. These critiques are not to say that Ashton Gardens is not an amazing facility to have your wedding. My wedding was beautiful and my reception even more so. I truly do appreciate my coordinator who made the actual day go very smoothly. However things such as bridal suite access, my wedding food, and billing, are not small problems to encounter. It’s also not so much that these problems occurred, but the attitude behind the staff when they were addressed. Good luck to all those brides out there!
I can not say enough how much I loved this venue! They were so accommodating and having a coordinator throughout the day tell me where I needed to be when made it so enjoyable and less stressful for both me and my mother (the real planner). They let me come in the day before rehearsal and I was able to see the best way to have my wedding party stand before the rehearsal. Also the food during the reception was amazing! I had multiple people tell me that this was the best salmon that they have ever had! Our wedding was only 4 hours, which was a concern of mine, but the coordinator is so on top of everything that there is no wasted time and it worked out perfectly! She also let us come in earlier than originally planned so we were able to take the groom with the groomsmen pictures and bride with the bridesmaid before the wedding. Overall they were really able to make it the perfect day for me and my husband and I would 100% recommend this venue to every future bride! BTW: The pictures in the chapel are gorgeous!!!
My sister fell in love with Ashton Gardens when she visited the venue. Everything was beyond beautiful from the chapel to the ballroom. All the guests complimented on how beautiful and elegant the place was. We didn't use the chapel but I loved that we still had access to it to take pictures. The wedding coordinator was Ashley and she was AMAZING. She is the absolute sweetest person to work with and she constantly cared for my sister and her now husband. She helped with all of the little hiccups that I overlooked and accommodated to anything we wanted that wasn't on the plan. The bride and groom had the best night because of Ashton Gardens. Thank you so much for everything!
Ashton Gardens - Houston West was a dream come true for my Husband and I. Our wedding was beyond beautiful and all of our guests had such a great time! The entire Ashton Gardens staff and beautiful coordinators, Morgan and Ashley, were amazing to work with and they made our day stress free.The only negative feedback we had from our day was that...we should have booked the venue for a longer time! Nobody was ready to leave! lol. Thank you Ashton Gardens - Houston West your staff will forever be etched in our hearts as we reflect on the beauty of our union on October 16, 2016. - Love, A very happy client
I love Ashton Gardens! We had a great experience with them during the entire process. Everyone was very nice and helpful! The only thing that I was disappointed about was they had a wedding earlier in the day before mine. I was told they would be gone and out of my way by the time our wedding. The bridal party arrived and the reception was still happening. The bridal party from earlier came back to the area where we were getting ready which made things very crowded and uncomfortable. This pushed back my wedding and it was complete chaos in the bridal suite because my coordinator was rushing to flip the reception area instead of being with us. Once the wedding began, everything went back to being amazing! I highly recommend Ashton Gardens, but be sure that there will not be an issue like we experienced!
I got married at Ashton Gardens West Houston. I LOVED the chapel so much. I was married at night and paid a little extra for the moonlight package, the whole chapel was lit by candles! I had compliments from so many guests on how beautiful the chapel was.
Ashton Gardens North is everything I had hope for and more! The chapel and reception hall are naturally beautiful and with our decor, our guests couldn't stop complimenting how beautiful everything was! We opted for a plated dinner and our guests couldn't stop talking about how amazing both options were. As if the beauty and food of the venue aren't enough, their staff were incredible! And I can't say enough great things about our day of coordinator Erika!! She was so attentive, thoughtful, and fun throughout the entire planning process that it truly made the experience! I can't say enough great things about this venue - simply wonderful!
Ashton Gardens North is absolutely beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. All of the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Our coordinator Erika did an outstanding job throughout the planning process and on the day of. She helped everything run smoothly! You will not regret planning your big day here!
We had the most beautiful wedding at Ashton Gardens North. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, not one single problem and completely stress free. Our coordinator was Erika and she was so kind and so very helpful. She really went out of her way to make sure that everything was perfect. The staff there is very professional and friendly. Ashton Gardens is a gorgeous venue and I knew that I wanted to have our wedding there the moment I saw the chapel. We have absolutely gorgeous photos for memories that we will have forever.
Ashton Gardens is the perfect wedding venue for every bride and groom! They did an amazing job helping me get all the final details together and made my wedding day go so smoothly. My wedding planner was Ashley and SHE IS THE BEST EVER! She took such great care of my husband and I throughout the wedding planning process, the wedding day, and always made us feel so calm and happy. The only down side is that there is not a good location to take outdoor pictures except in front of their signature doors. Their food was also SOOO good! Ashton Gardens knows how to throw a fun wedding with so much class! Loved it!
My husband and I got married here at the West Location and it was amazing, The entire process was smooth our wedding planner was Brittney and she was amazing!! She handled any and all questions we had and was always responsive, the venue itself was great the chapel and reception was beautiful. We got the sterling buffet package and it was delicious and everyone loved the food, Also, everyone said the drinks were great and not weak so I was happy about that. However, the only complaint is that people were bringing there glasses to the dance floors because for some reason drinks were being picked up from the table regardless if they were full or not. I did not get a chance to witness this but if it was true that would be the only thing to watch out for. Other than that the night and process was great.
WOW. Just WOW. That is the only word you need to describe Ashton Gardens North! Being a new bride to be and groom to be is so exciting, but also so overwhelming! But choosing AGN was THE EASIEST and BEST decision of the whole wedding planning! They take care of everything right from the start! They really take listen and notice of your vision and try to do everything to make it come true. Knowing that my wedding will be held at Ashton Gardens is a true breath of fresh air! No worrying, stressing....just excitement and counting down until the wedding day!! THANK YOU ASHTON GARDENS AND THE WHOLE TEAM!!!!
For our daytime brunch wedding in June, we wanted a venue that would feel like you were outdoors but with the comfort of climate control. We fell in love with Ashton Gardens North from the moment we pulled up to the front. The venue is very well maintained and our photos turned out beautifully with all of the natural light. The food (brunch menu) was amazing. Our friend group is made up of food snobs from NYC, and many raved about the food. One even told us he would go have brunch there if it were a restaurant in his Brooklyn neighborhood. We did have one pretty major issue with the bar service (no ingredients for one of our main cocktails), but we are not taking away the five star review because the Ashton Gardens team was extremely apologetic and made it up to us in a way that we feel is extremely fair. Amanda was our coordinator, and she was very responsive and organized. She and the staff were extremely attentive to us and our guests during the wedding. They also very seamlessly accommodated our guests' food allergies and vegetarian preferences. The groom and I both agreed that if we had it to do over again, we would definitely pick Ashton Gardens again.
DO NOT USE THIS VENUE! The chapel was a dream. So beautiful and small that it filled up beautifully. That's where it ends... The food is sub par. You could point in any direction and find way better food at a restaurant. The Staff are prissy and a bucket of 6 beer cost $172.oo Really??!!The hall stunk as soon as the reception started(which was only 100 people AND we rented both sides so that we would be the only ones there!) The $41 per person open bar RAN OUT of liquor. (my family and friends didnt drink much either). The venue lost the majority of my stuff (sleeves to my dress, cards with money went missing, boxes from decorations, I ended up having to pay the florist for "lost" vases.) My top layer of cake was cut up and served. Even though I specifically asked the venue and baker to leave instructions to save it for me! and what was saved was butchered! The grounds were awful- the pillars are NOT REAL so don't even think of doing a picture leaning against them. I couldn't do any pictures in the grass as everything was overwatered and it hadn't rained for several day before the wedding. None of the special food allergies were accommodated- oh sure they say they understand. But then they serve you a salad with cheese in it when you are allergic to DAIRY! and say that it wont happen again... It was too late. I ate the salad that I didn't know had cheese on it!! I could go on and on... Even the DJ they recommended was awful. Please take my advise.. for this amount of money find someplace that knows what they are doing. Ashton Gardens West clearly does not.
Our wedding was at Ashton Gardens West, and our event coordinator, Bethany, was THE best. The entire planning process, she was very accommodating & quick to respond to any questions I had. The day of, she was there, making sure everything went smoothly and on time. Not to mention the venue itself is brand new & kept very clean. I would definitely recommend them!
I got married on February 12th at the West Houston location. Everything was fabulous. My guest can't stop talking about the Venue. We worked with Megan McFarland and she was wonderful through the moment we first looked at the venue until the moment we left as husband and wife!
Stunning ChapelReviewed on 1/26/2016 Carly O
Ashton Gardens was everything I wished for. From the stunning chapel to the gorgeous ballroom, it was the perfect venue to say “I Do”. The team at Ashton Gardens North is professional and organized. They accommodated every request I made. Taylor, my day of coordinator, was perfect. She answered any questions I had before and placed all my décor perfectly. She made the day run so seamlessly. I received my security deposit back from them less than a week after the wedding. Simply put, Ashton Gardens knows what they are doing when it comes to a wedding. You are in great hands if you choose to have your wedding with them.
I got married in August at Ashton Gardens and I was beyond happy with my experience. I worked with Shara in the beginning for contract details and Bethany was my coordinator for my wedding. Both of these ladies (and the entire staff) went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we wanted. They did an incredible job with everything and everyone raved about what a perfect day it was! The venue was beautiful and you can tell they are proud of what they do. The grounds are well kept and everything was so clean and nice for us. I could just live in their chapel, its so beautiful! The Ashton Garden team will make sure everything runs smoothly for you from your rehearsal to the timeline of your wedding day so you can just sit back and enjoy your wedding day. And not to mention the delicious food! You MUST get the mac n cheese bar! I had a brunch wedding on a Sunday and they just made it feel perfect, everyone loved the food! Thank you so much to the entire Ashton Gardens team! You were all so wonderful! -Rachel
I attended a wedding at Ashton Gardens around Christmas time and was not impressed. As someone who had heard about and seen beautiful pictures of this venue, I was super excited to see it in person! First off, the sound system did not work well at all during the ceremony and gave lots of horribly loud feedback noise during the ceremony. In the few moments it was working for the entrance music, it was at an uncomfortably loud volume. At moments it was like someone was playing with the volume like a kid. Don't get me wrong, the facilities are beautiful and the service for the reception was fantastic, but there were several other events that made those nice things not seem quite as nice. The pacing of the wedding was horrible. They called all of the room to the dance floor and then the bride and groom cut the cake while everyone was on the dance floor. Those who were out there missed it. It wasn't even announced! Also, they didn't even give them time to throw the bouquet! It never happened! Now I know the ceremony went on for a while, but still there was plenty of time to have all of these traditional wedding things occur! All in all, I would not recommend this venue based on this experience as a spectator. Having a faulty sound system is unforgivable, and not guiding the reception so that all key events can take place is not worth the 10s of thousands of dollars people pay for this venue. I was so looking forward to seeing this place, and came out so disappointed. I only hope that the bride and groom enjoyed their experience, because after all it was their day, and it really could have been ruined by lack of "planning" on Ashton Gardens's part.
I just had my ceremony and reception at the new Ashton Gardens location on 12/12 and loved everything about the day! My coordinator Megan made everything go so wonderfully and she was a dream to work with. All the other staff that I worked with or came into contact with were wonderful. This venue has a lot to offer for the bride that wants a chapel and venue next to each other. Highly recommend!
Words can't explain how thankful I am to My coordinator (BETHANY STANTON) for making my dream wedding at ASHTON GARDENS WEST a memorable one. I have always prayed for a wedding where I don't have to worry about anything and believe everything will turn out ok. The Ambiance was breath taking, the food was spot on, the organization and the commitment of the staff was totally off the chart "wow". I will recommend ASHTON GARDENS to all the upcoming love birds anytime and always because I haven't found any area to fault the level of organization on my wedding day. I am glad I got the perfect wedding venue for my perfect day. Thank you ASHTON GARDENS. Love, Chinenye Oguchi.
