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.

    "Best food I've ever had at a wedding reception", from one of our guests!!

    All of the staff, especially Cindy, Chef Caesar and Miguel could not have been more professional, efficient or kind. The food from the passed appetizers and cheese table to the street tacos at 11 pm were unique and deliciously spot on! That you for making sure that we as the parents sat and ate dinner as well.

    You could tell how hard you were all working make this evening exceed our expectations, and it did! We wholeheartedly recommend The Ashton to everyone we know!

    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!

    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 :)

    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 was an absolute pleasure to work with. EVERYBODY on staff went above and beyond before and during the event.
