Wedding Reception on December 29, 2018
The Ashton Depot is a BEAUTIFUL venue for a wedding reception! Our son and daughter-in-law were married in the Philippines, and we needed a SPECIAL, intimate place for a wedding reception for family and friends coming in from as far as Seattle, WA, to Yuma, Az, to Chicago, IL to list a few. Having three sons, we had NO idea how to go about planning this. Cindy Vasquez was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process! She was even in touch with us during her maternity leave! The vendor list is one you can count on! The staff is absolutely the best! The food is like no other you will ever taste. We were PROUD to have our reception at The Asthon Depot. We are hearing compliments daily. THANK YOU CINDY VASQUEZ, MIGUEL, AND CHEF!Sent on 01/03/2019

The Ashton Depot was Perfect!
The Ashton Depot was the perfect place for our morning ceremony and brunch reception. The natural light and character of this historic venue made for a really beautiful setting. Plus, it was a great back drop for our photos :)Sent on 01/12/2019
Cindy and team were a dream to work with. Cindy was super kind and responsive with my many questions and I couldn't believe how smoothly our wedding day went. Cindy and Miguel kept us on track throughout the day and neither our families or my new husband or I had to worry about a thing. We got tons of compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue was and how good the food was too.
I had initially planned to have the ceremony outside, but due to weather concerns moved the ceremony inside and have to say that it worked perfectly getting married inside as well, although the courtyard is lovely too.
Thanks again Cindy and team for helping to make my wedding day such an amazing day!

The Ashton Depot is a top notch, unique, and gorgeous wedding venue in downtown Fort Worth. They are located just two blocks from our lovely hotel, so we partner often on wedding events and guest rooms. Having experienced their dining first hand, I am confident in saying that the service and cuisine at Ashton Depot is well above average, super memorable, and completely impressive. A great choice for your wedding venue!
The Ashton Depot was an absolute pleasure to work with. EVERYBODY on staff went above and beyond before and during the event. My being a planner, I appreciate organization, sticking to timelines and willingness to do whatever it takes to make this happen. Ashton Depot did all of this. I am more than happy to work with them again. Besides, the building is beautiful, the food is delicious and I believe my clients & their guests have always left more than happy! A+++
