I am so thankful that I chose this venue. I have had so many of our guests tell me that it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended. The venue is stunning, the food is delicious and the staff is extremely sweet! I didn’t want to pay for a wedding planner and the coordinators at Ashton Gardens (I had Erika) were phenomenal. She helped with every last detail and made me feel so confident that our wedding day would be flawless... and it was!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and highly recommend this venue to brides that are looking for a beautiful, romantic venue!
Ashton Gardens Houston North was nothing short of amazing. I couldn't imagine my wedding day turning out anymore beautiful and a lot of that had to do with my event coordinator Erika Berry! She was awesome! She was so sweet and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Ashton Gardens to anyone.
Getting married at Ashton Gardens was a dream for me! It was the first and only venue I toured and I knew it would be perfect from that first day. The staff is very friendly and the ceremony venue and reception hall are as beautiful as the pictures. It's truly unique in the sense that you get the feeling of an outdoor wedding in an indoor setting. Paris was my wedding coordinator and she made sure that my rehearsal and wedding day went exactly as planned and I wasn't stressed once! I highly recommend this venue to anyone who is wanting a light and airy outdoor feel to their special day! I had nothing but compliments about every detail of the day. :)
LOVED having our wedding here! It's so beautiful and was perfect for my vision. Loved that the bar, catering, linens and coordinator were already there. Erika was our coordinator and she's the best! She brought my vision to life and handled everything behind the scenes the day of. Although our food was great, we wished that the we had been able to try the food that we chose for our dinner ahead of time. They had a tasting but with just a few items from the list of possible choices. We really wished that we would've been able to get our hair and makeup done in the pretty bridal suite but we weren't allowed to without paying more than we were willing. The guys didn't like the small size of the groom's suite either and they mentioned it several times. Overall I would definitely chose Ashton Gardens North if I had the chance to do it again!
What a great place to get married! We got married at the West Houston location and everything went super smoothly. We didn't bring in any external decorations, but it didn't matter because the venue was so pretty! And the day of coordinator we got (Reem) was worth her weight in gold! Everything went perfect and smoothly. Reem took care of messaging all the vendors to make sure everything was in line. I wouldn't change anything even if I could
The Venue was wonderful. The Vow Renewal went ok. The music was not how I wanted it walking in. We went through 3 different wedding coordinators but other than that it all went smoothly.
Ashton Gardens is a FABULOUS venue. The staff is so helpful, the chapel and ballroom are beautiful, and the entire wedding experience is THE BEST.
Beautiful Venue. Yummy food. We had a great experience planning our wedding, thanx to Erika Berry! She was so helpful and kept everything under control the day of. The only reason I give this place two stars is because the next morning after the wedding, I started hearing complaints. At the end of the event, when we were making our exit, the wait staff threw away EVERYTHING off the tables including personal belongings of our guests! I am still apologizing to people because of how rude their staff was! When I brought it to the Ashton management team, they made excuses and made it sound like this happens all the time! TERRIBLE! I can't believe that they have such blatant disregard for peoples things!
Highly, highly, highly recommend! This place was amazing, from the beautiful venue, to the considerate staff, to the excellent catering, Ashton Gardens – North Houston gave us the best wedding experience. My wife and I both have very busy schedules and needed someone who would get a lot done independently and proactively without having to constantly contact us for every detail. Erika Berry, our coordinator was perfect. She is thoroughly professional and was on top of her stuff from day 1, which made the planning go way more smoothly than expected. Another bonus is the catering. You don’t have to find a caterer because Ashton Gardens has great food and service in-house. They have a wide-variety of foods and serving options that allowed us to find a perfect combination that stayed in budget. Finally, the highlight of the venue is the chapel. It was numerous floor-to-ceiling windows that give an indoor wedding the feeling of being outdoors. With all of the heat in Houston, this was a great option to get as close to an outdoor wedding as possible without anyone having to sweat through their suit or dress.
My wedding was in July this year. I wish I could relive this day over and over. Ashton Gardens staff is incredible, and their venue is gorgeous. Having day of coordination from their staff made my life (and my family's life) SO much easier. They have great style, and you can be sure to trust them as they are helping florists and vendors set up. Everyone kept saying how calm I was on my wedding day, and that's all because of the wonderful Ashton Garden staff!
I just loved everything about Ashton Gardens North. The staff is all amazing, Amanda was fabulous with her coordination. I would highly recommend them! It is one stop shop for everything and they made it all so easy the day of. I think if I had to do it again I might get a day of coordinator but mostly to wrangle the guys, hehehe! I LOVE ASHTON GARDENS!!!
Everyone at Ashton Gardens was perfect! Erika was my coordinator and she did a fabulous job making sure that everything I wanted was done just how I wanted it. I was concerned about handing over little details to other people, but they did an amazing job. Everything was just how I pictured it. And the food was delicious!! They are so worth every penny, and I highly recommend them.
My husband and I got married here July 2017. We cannot say enough about how professional everyone is who works here. We didn't have to worry about a thing the day of our wedding. They literally took care of everything! The service was amazing and we received so many compliments on how beautiful the chapel is!
Loved everything about this venue!
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!
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!
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 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!
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!
We had our wedding at Ashton Gardens West and it was absolutely beautiful! The large windows with trees lining the outside in the chapel gave it a perfect inside/outside feel. It was an evening wedding, so they had the aisle lined with candles and it was breath-taking. Our wedding coordinator, Morgan, did a fantastic job and made the whole wedding planning process a breeze. It's a wonderful venue and we would recommend it to anyone!
My wedding was at the Ashton Garden's North location. Erika was our coordinator, and she was outstanding. She is so bubbly and full of joy during every encounter we had. She made the whole wedding process so much easier than I was expecting. She eased all my anxieties, and worked closely with me to ensure the wedding day would be as magical as I had envisioned it. As a whole - Ashton Gardens staff was pleasant, very kind, very attentive, and did everything we asked to make sure our day was perfect.
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
We got married at the Ashton Gardens West Houston location, and it's the perfect venue if you love greenery and natural lighting without having a wedding outside! We used the chapel (which OMG is the most beautiful chapel ever) and the ballroom, which made it easy for our guests to transition from one to the other without needing to drive. There was no doubt in my mind that this venue was beautiful, however, there were a few things I would have changed. First, I would have extended the time of our wedding. Our wedding was 5 hours and 30 min long, which was from 5:00 pm - 10:30 pm (including ceremony AND reception). All the vendors kept telling me that there was ample amount of time for a wedding of 200 guests, but I wish I followed my gut and extended our time. If we wanted more time, it would have cost us $300 extra for every 30 min! Since I have a large family, picture taking took up more time than expected. Secondly, we had the Sterling Buffet where your guests go up and serve themselves,. Some guests informed me that they couldn't go back for seconds because the food was already taken away. In our contract, it says that food is served for 1 hour, but I had a lot of guests inform me afterwards that they were still hungry and some didn’t even get to eat! It’s expected that guests will wonder, go to the bar, go to the Photo Booth, take pictures around the venue and etc. So giving my guests 1 hour to eat didn't work. In all, when planning a wedding, you don't really know what will work and will not work. Time was definitely a factor. I wish our wedding planner had asked us if we wanted to extend our time the day of the wedding. It’s impossible to know if you want to extend it beforehand. Upon signing the contract we only paid for an additional 30 minutes, but if our wedding planner would have asked us the day of our wedding, we would have paid the extra money to extend with all vendors. Other than that, we had a beautiful wedding within budget and everyone had fun.
