The Castle as Ashley Manor did an amazing job with everything. Everything turned out beautifully and went very smoothly. I met with each of the planners on staff and each were extremely pleasant to work with. They helped me pick out centerpieces for the day of, napkins, linens, etc. They made sure I had all of the details planned for the day, was informed of everything I needed to know, etc. It was the best night of my life thus far and I wish I could relive it again! Every single guest told me that it was one of the most beautiful and fun weddings they have ever been to- so I thank each member on staff at the Castle for everything!!! :)

The most beautiful venue with the best team!
Where do I even start? I have had the most exceptional experience with the Ashley Castle crew and I can’t even imagine having it any other way. Laura, Katie, and Chrystie, the beautiful coordinators extraordinaire, were beyond amazing! They not only helped me plan the most beautiful wedding, but they went out of their way to accommodate and help me create the vision I wanted for my wedding. They were always available to chat, were always willing to hear my never-ending “thoughts” about my Decor, they were quick to answer emails, and always greeted me with the warmest smiles and hugs.
The Ashley Castle, just by itself, is absolutely stunning. It has beautifully maintained gardens with a gazebo and a fountain. It has quite the charm. But the added bonus of the warm, dedicated, and supportive coordinators, DJ, Florists and vendors take it to a different level. Aimee, the florist was exceptional. She took my vision and budget and produced the most creative and beautiful arrangements. She always just wanted to my emails and stretched her self to accommodate my ideas. DJ Jeff was available to answer any questions and he has quite the cutest photo booth which was a hit at my wedding. If I could the Castle give more than five stars I would because five stars does not do them justice. You will never go wrong choosing the Ashley Castle for your events!

A Fairy Tale Come True
My son and his wife were married here last weekend. This venue is not only beautiful, it is run by skilled professionals who will make your event run smoothly. The castle had everything they needed under one roof and their recommended vendors were highly qualified pros who were able to take advantage of all the Castle had to offer.Sent on 10/30/2018
From the first visit to the end of the wedding day, the staff worked hard at dotting every i and crossing every t. Not many things are better than promised but the Castle under promised and over delivered. I can not recommend them highly enough.

Loved this venue! They relieved me of so many things that really stress a bride out! They handled flowers, decor, cake, food, dj and were there for me emotionally every step of the way!

Five Stars are not nearly enough for this Venue...The Ashley Castle is the place to hold your Wedding or special event, it is hands down SPECTACULAR. We had our Wedding here and the Staff at the Castle from wedding planners Laura and Chrystie to Shelley the florist, Jeff the DJ, Rubin and all of the staff know what they are doing and are top notch when it comes to Customer Service. Nicest group of people I have ever worked with. From the pre-planning to the day of the event...its was STRESS FREE. They were so helpful in helping make decisions from Food choices (FABULOUS FOOD), to decorations of floral and other unique ideas you may have. They are so accommodating in every way. They make sure the event is exactly how you want it. The DJ did a fantastic job keeping everything going and played music that had the whole reception dancing til the very last song. The venue is so beautiful with all the lush landscaping and fountains you can't go wrong with this venue it will be the best decision you make and hands down your special day will be more than you can imagine. I looked at several venues and I will tell you the Ashley Castle is the most affordable and with that you get the best of everything.Sent on 06/26/2017

The Ashley Castle was completely flexible in creating a custom package for us. Olivia responds super quick and is very helpful in creating the wedding of our dreams with a price we can afford!

My daughter got married at the castle in March. It is a beautiful venue and has beautiful gardens in the back. We have not received the photos yet but I imagine they will be beautiful, there are so many spots for photo opportunities. The Castle did a great job with the set up and everything ran smooth all night. They did everything we asked for. Olivia was a big help for the year that we planned this wedding. Due to the fact that we had a lot of outside décor and elements I did hire an additional Day of Co-coordinator. However if you did not have these elements you would not need to do that. We had the Cinderella coach come for carriage rides which was great for photos. We also had the castle arrange fireworks and I can tell you that everyone, including myself was impressed. They were amazing!
For food we went with prime rib and macadamia nut chicken with mango sauce. Both were really good and we were pleased with the selection. Piece of cake did a great job with the cake, and it also tasted very good. The bar was flowed smooth all night also.
For flowers, we paid extra for our centerpieces and they were great. They also did the bannister behind the ceremony space and the gazebo. The castle did a really job with those items. I hired a outside florist(LUX) to do the bouquets and was so disappointed with their work. I wish I had had the castle do everything.
Jeff their DJ did a great job. My daughter had song requests on her response cards and Jeff played them all.
We had one guest tell us he has been to 100's of weddings(He is a bishop) and this one was the most amazing one he has been to. People were loving the venue and said they didn't even know it was here. We were very pleased with The Castle and would highly recommend it to anyone.

The staff is very friendly. They took the stress of getting married away! I love that they are an all inclusive venue so I don't have to run around stressing trying to find what i need for my wedding day. The food tastings they have are fabulous so there are no surprizes for your wedding day!
Kim · Married on 11/06/2015
Absolutely loved working with the Coordinators at the Ashley Castle!!! It is such a beautiful and romantic place for both your ceremony and reception! Great outdoor space along with a huge inside location...it was just perfect! Everyone working there were so polite and helpful with everything. Someone was always answering my emails no matter how many I sent out with all sorts of questions! I loved that there was an all inclusive package which included flowers, cake, catering, and even a DJ! Everything turned out perfect; my dream wedding came true!

Ashley Manor allowed me to have the wedding of my dreams! Olivia the wedding planner that works there is awesome. I highly recommend the castle. All inclusive venue really takes a lot of the stress off the bride. I received so many compliments on how amazing the food and cake was at my wedding. Everything about the castle is nothing less than amazing.

The Ashley Castle wasn't the first venue choice for us. We went to many places throughout the east valley. We got tons of quotes from vendors as well. It was quite stressful choosing our venue. We saw the ads about the Ashley Castle earlier from the Bridal magazines, but we didn't pay attention, because we didn't think we are able to afford this place.
We learned more about the Ashley Castle after we went to the Phoenix Bridal Show. We checked out the Ashley Castle on the following day. It's unbelievable that the Ashley Castle is the most beautiful venue we visited, and has given us the best deal. We had 140 guests during our wedding. Both court yard and reception area are big enough for 200 guest+ (biggest place we visited). The price we paid was the stealing deal compared to other venues.
After we signed the contract; we had the fear that there would be some other hidden fees pop out. We are glad that there were No surprise fees at all. The Imperial package we had is very great and well better than other venue at the price we paid. We had two entrée buffets while the others have only one entrée buffet. The food was consistent from the food tasting and during the wedding. It’s very delicious and all our guests are very pleased with all the food served during reception.
Their staffs are very friendly and professional. Laura, the owner is very accommodating and helpful. Throughout the wedding preparation meetings, we didn’t feel like we had any pressure. They didn’t even ask for the check until the last minute. No pressure to get any upgrade. Laura just explained how each step works; we are the one who asked for the upgrade. She even gave suggestions to help us keep our budget low.
All of our guests still enjoy talking about our wedding at the Ashley Castle.
We highly recommend the Ashley Castle.

It didn't take long for my new hubby and I to pick this venue. We knew right away it was for us. The location is close to tons of hotels, the outside is gorgeous, the inside is awesome. The staff...especially Olivia is amazing. I secretly love to plan wedding stuff but, panicked when it came my turn to walk down the aisle. Olivia helped make my offbeat visions come true and helped me create a color scheme that would not make me want to puke later on! She was there before and during the wedding to make sure everything went off perfectly, and it did! Thank you to the Castle and its staff for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day! Ben and I had our dream wedding without a doubt!
Freddy · Married on 10/19/2013
Olivia was such a great help. She went above and beyond. From helping us finde a candy store, to even bar tending at our wedding. We felt so lucky to have her apart of the wedding and thankful for all her help. She was great .. Jeff as well, the best dj ever. Help me find the special song, maid everything flow smoothly. They lights were wonderful and what he did with our Initials was great. They both Maid our wedding a night that we'll never for get.

This was the best experience. Everything ran smooth and looked better than we ever expected. Everything was handled for me and was pretty much a stress-free day.
Bianca · Married on 10/04/2013
A MILLION thank yous to Olivia and all of the staff at The Castle. Not only were they helpful and flexible but they went above and beyond to make sure our big day was a success. I could not imagine what it would have been like to have our wedding at any other venue.
Daisy · Married on 09/28/2013
I sincerely had my dream wedding, it was perfect! My set up of the venue, I used the inside and garden area. I made the dance floor outside, by doing that I was able to do the fireworks after our dance. My coordinator from the castle was amazing!! Olivia made me feel very special and that this was my wedding and she never said no to me, everything I wanted was possible. I am so grateful to have had her as my coordinator. It was and still is my perfect wedding!
Christina · Married on 08/31/2013
This venue was AMAZING! The girls were so great and helpful! There was a young lady (forgive me I forgot her name), but she was fantastic!! She even boxed up my dinner for me since I was too busy running around thanking our guests for attending. She took me aside and mentioned that the sunset was perfect for photo shots. I am so greatful to this venue for setting us up with a lovely canvas to "paint" our wedding day. Having it all inclusive made things easy for me and helped me not stress out. I would strongly suggest this venue to the bride that is willing to give the stress to the professionals. All I had to do was decide the colors, cake design, and food choices for the evening. The flower bouquet I had was EXACTLY like the one I had gotten from Pinterest. Forever Grateful to the amazing staff.

The Castle was the perfect place for the wedding. Olivia and the staff were SOOO helpful and the day went perfectly without any hiccups! The staff truly loves wedding and you can tell they aren't just in it for the money!!
Jessica · Married on 04/13/2013
I enjoyed working with the Castle, especially Olivia. She did a great job of remembering the little things that we had talked about and was so easy going when I changed something 3 times. When it came to setting up the venue everything looked perfect and I had a few special requests. All was done well without coming to ask me any questions on my wedding day. Olivia was so easy to work with and such a pleasure. I would recommend this venue.
