The original stained glass windows, barrel-vaulted ceilings and marble floors create an elegant, stylish and vintage environment that is great for wedding celebrations.

    Best venue in DFW!

    I give Ashton Depot the highest review! Cindy Vasquez, Chef Cesar Gallegos, and the entire team were wonderful to work with. Cindy was very kind, helpful, and responsive to our questions.
    The staff took care of everything from setting up to keeping us on our timeline, providing coordination of their rental items, and taking everything down at the end of the evening. My husband and I, along with our families, did not have to worry about anything; we were in good hands.
    The staff exceeded our expectations. Our butler and all the other servers were terrific and very attentive. The synchronized service for dinner was excellent! Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended, along with the best food.
    It is so easy to write this review for Ashton Depot, just thinking back on all the details from our wedding reception just makes me smile! We’re so grateful we were able to book the Ashton Depot for our wedding reception and that our date was available. Thank you to all the staff at Ashton Depot that helped us have the wedding of our dreams! We are FOREVER grateful and will always recommend y’all to everyone we know!

    Worth every penny!

    We had high hopes for the Ashton Depot. On paper the venue looked fantastic: a turn key solution with excellent food, event management and gorgeous facility. This was great as we only had nine months to get the wedding and reception together. We also had to do it from a distance as we no longer live in Fort Worth. They were fantastic! Management worked with our changing needs and guest list and even had a plan for inclement weather and the time between the ceremony and reception. On the day of the event they worked with our vendors and even got the band to do something the band told us they would not (I guess the band liked working with Ashton Depot, too!). The service was incredible and the food even better. Regarding service, they had personal butlers serving the parents and bride and groom so they we could focus on our guests and each other! Throughout the event guests said this was the best food/venue/reception they had ever enjoyed. They even accommodated Super Frog as a surprise guest! We went above our budget a bit for Ashton Depot but the value we received in return FAR outweighed the cost!

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.
