The Ashley Castle wasn’t the first venue choice for us. We went to many places throughout the east valley. We got tons of quotes from vendors as well. It was quite stressful choosing our venue. We saw the ads about the Ashley Castle earlier from the Bridal magazines, but we didn’t pay attention, because we didn’t think we are able to afford this place.
We learned more about the Ashley Castle after we went to the Phoenix Bridal Show. We checked out the Ashley Castle on the following day. It’s unbelievable that the Ashley Castle is the most beautiful venue we visited, and has given us the best deal. We had 140 guests during our wedding. Both court yard and reception area are big enough for 200 guest+ (biggest place we visited). The price we paid was the stealing deal compared to other venues.
After we signed the contract; we had the fear that there would be some other hidden fees pop out. We are glad that there were No surprise fees at all. The Imperial package we had is very great and well better than other venue at the price we paid. We had two entrée buffets while the others have only one entrée buffet. The food was consistent from the food tasting and during the wedding. It’s very delicious and all our guests are very pleased with all the food served during reception.
Their staffs are very friendly and professional. Laura, the owner is very accommodating and helpful. Throughout the wedding preparation meetings, we didn’t feel like we had any pressure. They didn’t even ask for the check until the last minute. No pressure to get any upgrade. Laura just explained how each step works; we are the one who asked for the upgrade. She even gave suggestions to help us keep our budget low.
All of our guests still enjoy talking about our wedding at the Ashley Castle.
We highly recommend the Ashley Castle.
