The grand ballroom is a large, historic space that is ideal for receptions, while the 3,200-square-foot courtyard can be tented and is great for cocktail receptions. For smaller parties, a private suite can accommodate up to 30 guests. This venue is ideal for ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and engagement parties.

The Ashton Depot also offers off-site catering at locations around Fort Worth.

History
Though it’s now been transformed into a full-service venue, The Ashton Depot was originally a railroad station that opened in 1899. It was renovated in 1937. In 1970, it was listed as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark. Now, the terminal has been restored to reflect its historical significance and beauty. The original stained glass windows, barrel-vaulted ceilings and marble floors create an elegant, stylish and vintage environment that is great for wedding celebrations.

    Amazing Venue, Amazing Staff

    The Ashton Depot was truly a five star wedding experience. The staff were happy to work with us and experts in their field. They were flexible and offered us many options to make our big day one of a kid. The food, drinks, decorations, organization, and service was amazing. Our reception went flawlessly, our staff catered to our needs (bride and groom) as well as all of our parents' needs all night long, and made our night truly magical. It was an honor to work with this business and I would highly recommend hosting your wedding reception here. You will not be disappointed.

    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!

    Amazing food and service!

    We had our wedding on a Thursday night because we had to reschedule due to Covid. The servers and staff made the event flawless. The food was outstanding! I highly recommend the Ashton Depot!
