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
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!
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.
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 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.
So beautifulReviewed on 10/19/2015 Tiffany H
We had our ceremony and reception at Ashton Gardens at the north location. It was absolutely beautiful and the food was delicious. Our guests raved about all the details of the venue and especially the food. My family still talks about the prime rib we had that day. Taylor, our wedding coordinator, was pretty good. There were a few details that were missed like closing the airwall during the reception to separate the cocktail hour and reception location but that wasn't absolutely huge. It didn't make or break the day so I'm not too upset. It did make the area seem too big for our small amount of guests of less than 100. We ran behind (my own fault) but Taylor was able to rally us and get us through each detail of the wedding without any huge hiccups. The so good that the guests didn't even realize there was a bar. (That unfortunately meant no one really got to see the wedding favors of drink koozies left at the bar).
Ashton Gardens North is like a Fairy Tale!Reviewed on 10/17/2015 GayLynn P
We wanted an outdoor wedding but worried about the heat and the rain. We found Ashton Gardens and got the best of both worlds! The glass chapel makes you feel like you are outdoors, but you get the comfort and security of an indoor wedding. The weather forecast said it was going to rain on our wedding day and we didn't have to stress over it. Turns out we had a gorgeous day after all for our dream wedding. The venue is such a beautiful backdrop for pictures. Amanda and Laura made everything so easy and stress free for us. Amanda led us through everything, from planning the event to being right there by our side throughout the reception. She kept everything paced perfectly - the night flew by. The food was amazing - everyone raved on how good the food was. The entire staff made you feel like family. Beautiful venue!
Wedding EventReviewed on 9/29/2015
We had both the ceremony and the reception at the new Clay Road Ashton Gardens. I worked with Megan McFarland. She was an absolute blessing to work with. She responded to every call and request right away, and was very upfront and informative about the details and worked hard to accommodate all of our needs. She ran the wedding like a pro, and even unpacked many of the decorations to help me get the reception ready. She always had a smile on her face, and managed all the wedding jitters and anxiety with complete calm! Those are the things this Mom appreciates most about a wedding coordinator! The facility is beautiful - amazing chapel, and it really is perfect as it is. The reception room is easy to decorate as it is neutral and goes with about anything - however, it doesn't require much to make it your own. The food was plentiful and very tasty. They made my daughter's wedding day a perfect day! All of the comments that we heard from our guests were how beautiful the venue was and how much they enjoyed the meal. I have no complaints - start to finish!
AmazingReviewed on 9/15/2015 Kasandra R
A beautiful venue that sets an amazing mood. All go my guests were impressed. Did not need to add much decor. Laura and Taylor were so helpful during the entire process. Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone. Price included ceremony, reception, wedding coordinator, food, beverage, wait staff and basic decor.
BEAUTIFUL Ashton GardensReviewed on 8/25/2015 shannon b
Ceremony and Reception couldn't have been more beautiful. Staff was willing to work with us, allowed exactly what we wanted! Response emails/calls sometimes took a while from the AG staff, but all in all I wouldn't have wanted a wedding anywhere else. The beauty is unmatched and the service staff was exceptionally professional and kind to our guests.
Room for ImprovmentReviewed on 8/09/2015 Brittney A
Overall my experience with Ashton Gardens was positive, but there were aspects that definitely could have been better, mostly dealing with my day of coordinator. There were things during the planning process that were not double checked before sending to me for confirmation. This made me feel like my requests, plans, and vision for my wedding weren't being taken seriously. On the day of my wedding, my coordinator didn't ever come and say hi to me. In fact, I didn't see her until she came to line up the bridal party to walk down the aisle. After the ceremony, we were also rushed through pictures. Thank goodness my photographer spoke up for me and we were able to get all of the pictures we wanted. On the positive side, the venue is beautiful, the food is delicious, and all of the issues were worked out. Just don't be timid. Speak your mind if something isn't going as you planned.
Pure blissReviewed on 7/16/2015 Laura G
We had the most wonderful experience with Ashton Gardens. They were very upfront with the costs from the beginning, no hidden fees. The whole planning process was very simple and helped keep my stress down. Bethany was our planner and I can not say enough wonderful things about her. Once I would mention something, she had it down, no need to remind her of anything. She made the day-of run so smoothly, and was a large reason why I had such a stress-free day. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. We had several guests compliment it and say "it was the most beautiful venue they've ever been to". Their food is amazing as well - best mac & cheese I have ever had. Thank you for such an amazing and memorable experience. If I had to do it all again (hypothetically of course) I would have no doubts about going with Ashton Gardens. I highly recommend this venue to the classy bride looking for a stress-free day.
Amazing venue for brides and guestsReviewed on 7/14/2015 Emily D
My guests loved this venue. It was very easy and convenient for them to simply walk from the ceremony to the reception, where food and drinks were waiting. I loved how beautiful it was for pictures, and how professional and knowledgeable the staff was. If you can be flexible with your wedding date, this venue becomes even better. Saturday evening weddings are quite costly... but we saw how much less expensive a Sunday wedding was and opted for that. Same experience for less than half the price.
I absolutely loved Ashton Gardens for my wedding! I booked in a "rush" to get the special deals they were having on select dates. I had dreamed about having my wedding at Ashton Gardens for years and at first look, it was far too out of my budget so I went with another venue. When I saw the deals they were having and had some concern with my other pick, I immediately booked with Ashton Gardens and I am so glad that I did! They took so much of the hassle and planning and DIY out of the wedding that it made my entire process that much smoother. Our theme was Great Gatsby so we used special decor and AG was great about accommodating our special requests. We had very minor complaints on the day of but nothing that was a deal breaker. My husband's steak was overcooked and some of our items to pack up did not make it home with us (we live 2 hours away so it's a hassle but understandable). Bethany was our coordinator- I loved having someone ease my stress and walk me through everything from start to finish. Having her meet regularly up until the wedding day was so helpful to know everything was being taken care of! Overall, it's a great venue and I highly recommend it.

Ashton Gardens is the best venue in Houston! Our wedding was absolutely amazing. The coordinators and staff there are very professional and are very organized. I would recommend this venue to all brides.
Perfect WeddingReviewed on 3/23/2015 Kathryn W
After deciding on this venue, my parents and I were paired with Bethany Stanton. She was more than I could have asked for! She let us know of the specials the venue had if marrying in an "off" month (which saved over half the cost) and we went from there. She helped us in all of our selections and gave her candid opinions. With each meeting, she let us change our menus and guest counts and ask all of our million questions and never once appeared irritated. She even worked out our menus to get the most variety while still serving all guests. She was very welcoming and hospitable! On the day of the wedding, she was a huge help to my family! I had tons of decorations I wanted added to the venue that I had bought or designed, with a floorplan for everything, and she set it all up! I did not have to worry about a thing! We were also able to borrow the venues easels and anything else they had. My mother was very grateful. And it was beautiful. All the guests commented on how gorgeous the ceremony and the venue was. During the wedding, she was constantly checking on me, my family and friends to make sure we were okay and to keep us calm. At one point during the reception, we changed the bar from only beer to also serving liquor and she had it done in less than 15 minutes! It was also nice because we had our own servers for the entire night. At the end of the night, she even boxed up some cake and wine for us to take home with a lovely note inside, which was fantastic because I did not get any at the wedding. I know it is her job to do most of these things but she really made me feel special on my big day! As for the venue, it was perfect for me. With all of the buildings made of windows, it set the most romantic scene. I could not have found a better place!
WowReviewed on 2/04/2015 Alyssa K
I can't say enough good things about this place, it was everything I wanted! The people are WONDERFUL, the place is BEAUTIFUL, and the food is FANTASTIC. It's worth checking out, I promise!!
Best Venue AroundReviewed on 1/16/2015 Tiffany-Lea J
I got married in December, 2014 and I could not be more happy with how my wedding turned out. We did ours on a Sunday to save some money so we could afford nicer flowers etc., so we payed around $14,000 for the venue and about $28,000 overall. The consultants were there for us every step of the way making sure that our dream wedding came true. The day of was nerve wracking enough just knowing I would be walking down the aisle, but i was not worried about anything else because my consultant had told me that all was under control, which it was. The food was delicious, everyone said so, and everything was perfectly timed to be able to fit all the different aspects of a wedding in. I highly recommend Ashton Gardens for a wedding, or any significant event for that matter. They also give you a preferred vendor list, which makes life that much easier. I enjoyed my day and could not have done it without their help.
Beautiful Wedding!Reviewed on 12/24/2014 Kimberly R
Ashton Gardens is a beautiful place to get married! The chapel is stunning, even more so in real life. You pay for the great services so you and your family have nothing to worry about on your wedding day. I would chose them again!
A dream come true!Reviewed on 11/19/2014 Altovise R
Ashton Gardens was the best choice of the whole wedding planning! In fact, they made the rest of the wedding planning easier. Their facility is gorgeous. Pictures do not do it justice. The chapel is stunning with ceiling to floor glass walls on three sides looking out into a wooded forest. My wedding party could not stop commenting on how beautiful the chapel looked at the rehearsal and that was before it was decorated for the wedding. The reception was wonderful too. Ashton Gardens catering and reception hall was outstanding. The food did was delicious and did not taste like "wedding food" at all! The staff, especially our planner, Lorena were superb. Lorena has her stuff together, she responded to all of our messages timely and made my wedding day go smoothly! Ashton Gardens was everything we could want for our wedding!
Ashton GardensReviewed on 11/03/2014 Dayo F
Our experience from the beginning to end was exceptional. The facility is beautiful, clean and the chapel looks even more magnificent in real life. The cost is clearly communicated to you so you can make clear decisions and there are no surprise hidden costs. The entire staff was very organized, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Working with the preferred vendors who have a working relationship already with the facility made it all stress-free. The food was amazing, we were very impressed. The wait staff and bartender did a great job as well as, and lent an air of class and sophistication to the entire event. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our wedding coordinator – Rebekah. She was very friendly, professional and organized. She did a very good job of communicating and coordinating with us all the information we needed to be prepared and to make our day successful. On the day of wedding she was even better. Our wedding day was amazing and we will always be grateful to Ashton Gardens team. Ashton Gardens definitely knows how to do weddings.
