    Stress free Vendor

    We had nothing but an amazing experience with the Ashworth at Hampton. The venue was amazing with great opportunity to walk across the street for perfect photos. The food was delicious including all of our appetizers. We were able to go above and beyond to have the wedding of our dreams with a reasonable price. The team at the Ashworth was polite and accommodating. We especially want to thank Eileen, the wedding coordinator, for all her hard work and dedication brought it all together. Our first wedding got canceled because of COVID.. Eileen assured me that everything would be fine and that she would make it all happen income together the way we wanted and deserved.. she definitely is true to her word. So with all that being said, if we had to do it all over again we were definitely picked the Ashworth a Hampton and recommend all of our friends and family to go there do you have a great experience.

    Heather & Anthony,

    Thank you so much for this amazing review! I am so thrilled that your Special Day went as planned and that I could help relieve some of the stress involved with, not only planning a wedding, but having to move venues! It all worked out for the best and you and Anthony were such a pleasure to work with! Thank you for allowing me to take home those special centerpieces!

    I'll see you you both in April!

    Amazing!

    My Husband and I had to replan and replan our wedding when we finally found the Ashworth by the Sea in Hampton. It is such a hidden gem that we can't recommend ENOUGH! from every detail to the wedding and the communication it was perfect. Eileen the wedding coordinator is easily the best person I have ever worked with. I am also a professional photographer and she made this process fun and easy! We want to relive that weekend over and over and over. The food is amazing the service is top notch and its on the beach what more do you need! Call them for your wedding. I can not wait to go back again just to visit. Thank you for all you did and do for us!
