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.Sent on 01/23/2020

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!Sent on 01/26/2020

I have so many great memories with Ashton Depot. As I redesign my website, I see a ton of pictures from this fantastic historical venue. The staff is FANTASTIC. Cynthia is great to work with and Miguel is extremely thorough. I love trusting the venue and working with them as a vendor. Highly recommend looking into this venue for your next event.
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+++
