My fiancé (now husband) and I searched everywhere for a beautiful outdoor location that would allow us to bring in outside catering and alcohol. We stumbled upon the Ashley Inn by happenstance, and I am so glad we did! We all fell in love with it the first time we visited and I swear the place gets prettier every time I'm out there. Both Amandas and Megan are all three so helpful and return e-mails quickly. Multiple guests told us that it was the prettiest wedding they'd ever been to! It's perfect for pictures, and having the horses in the background of our reception pictures just adds to the romantic feeling! I'd recommend this place to anyone and everyone looking to get married outdoors with a Kentucky or shabby chic theme!Sent on 09/18/2013

Loftus- Angel Wedding
Meagan and Heidi were very easy to work with and they really delivered! From the first appointment to the day of the event, we had all of our questions answered and they took care of all of the details. We received many compliments from guests about how beautiful the venue and the wedding ceremony and reception was. I highly recommend!Sent on 03/18/2019

Rehearsal Dinner and Reception
Our Son was married here in Sept. It was wonderful to have the facility for the whole weekend. No hurried exit or stress. Our rehearsal dinner was beautiful with the reflecting pool and our friends and family were able to stay into the evening by the fire and relax before the big day. The most beautiful setting amid the beautiful horse farm. Perfect to show our guests the rolling hills of Kentucky. The owners and staff helped in every way. Highly recommend this venue and having the inn for the whole weekend gave us additional options for our children and family. My Dad who had been ill was able to retire early on the property and my mother could stay and enjoy the reception. Perfect! Would gladly celebrate at the Ashley Inn again!Sent on 04/04/2019

Fabulous venue! One of Central Kentucky's best kept secrets.
A wonderful venue to have a spectacular wedding.
