I literally cannot say enough about how wonderful everything at the Ashford Estate was. I had my dream wedding at this magical venue on 7/2/16. The Ashford Estate is literally the most beautiful wedding venue I have ever been to. I love that everything is on site- and the different spaces for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception keep the day unfolding for guests like little surprises. The food was excellent! We had salmon and Chateaubriand for our dinner choices and I've never seen so many plates licked clean at a wedding. My guests also told me that they were offered second helpings as there was extra in the kitchen - what a nice touch! The cocktail hour food was amazing as well, as were our strolling desserts - guests thought this idea was different and fun and couldn't stop raving about the options. More than anything, what puts Ashford Estate over the top were the absolutely amazing on site staff. Laura of Merrimakers was by far the most attentive, responsive and wonderful person that I could have asked for in planning my wedding. I am in PR and have planned many events and she and her staff were like I had 100 versions of myself day-of. I like to have my hands in everything to make sure it's all perfect and I have never met anyone who could replicate things exactly as I would have done it. Laura totally got me and my vision and I felt like I could relax and TOTALLY trusted her and her team the day of. Kelsey of Merrimakers was our maitre'd and was equally as amazing as Laura -helping my day run smoothly. Lastly, my bridal attendants, Taylor and Lisa, were so BEYOND amazing and attentive. They made sure me and my groom always had drinks and were able to eat, literally had everything ready and attentive. I cannot say enough about everyone at Ashford Estate. There was not one thing that went wrong, the venue is perfect, the gardens are perfect, the food is perfect, the staff is perfect. I cannot recommend them enough! They gave this bride her dream wedding!

Laura, the contact for Merri-Makers at the Ashford Estate was incredible. She was available, attentive, knowledgeable, and patient every step of the wedding planning process.

The service provided the day of the wedding was outstanding. Kelsey our Maitre'D and Laura were both available for the rehearsal the day prior. While we hired a day of wedding planner who was helpful, we would have felt as easily as comfortable knowing that Laura and Kelsey were there to help organize the event.

The wait staff was extremely attentive and courteous and were diligent to make us and our guests feel welcomed and happy every step of the way. We do not believe there was a moment when we had to worry about what was happening next and we certainly had a drink in hand without even making a request.

The food was wonderful but not over kill and Laura was excellent at customizing our menu to suit our personal options. If you want amazing service and an excellent experience, I highly recommend using Merri Makers catering for your event!

Merri Makers was the BEST decision I made in all of my wedding planning. Their venue, the Ashford Estate, is absolutely stunning. They say "it is your house for the day" and they mean it. Their staff is incredibly accommodating, professional, and genuine. Giana, one of our staff for the day, actually cried when my dad walked me down the aisle! She was making friends with the groomsmen too! It feels great to have staff that are incredibly dedicated to you and to weddings in general surrounding you on your special day. Leading up to the event, Laura was incredibly responsive, helpful, and organized. I can't recommend the Ashford Estate and Merri Makers enough.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Neshanic Valley Golf Course in June 2015 and worked exclusively with Merri-Makers catering. The quality of the food was PHENOMENAL- every guest commented on that for both cocktail hour and entrees. I would most definitely recommend Merri-Makers for any catered event!

I cannot begin to express how grateful we are to have had the Merrimakers & WOD team by our side during this wonderful, but at some points stressful time. I cannot tell you that your wedding won't be costly, if you choose a WOD venue...but I can absolutely tell you that you will remember it for the rest of your lives, and it will certainly be the best night of your life! Merrimakers has an unmatched professionalism about them, that I do not believe is available anywhere else. We worked with Laura D., Mary, Jamie, Kevin, and Kevin, Kate (my bridal attendant, whom I will be grateful for her presence that night for the rest of my life LOL), and Ginny for WOD, and I really cannot express into words how instrumental each and everyone of these people were in making our night BEAUTIFUL. I cannot say one off color thing about this team...I promise you WOD venues are worth the price. The food was exceptional, our ballroom was setup exactly to my specifications, and the staff that worked our wedding were among the nicest people I have ever met. I know for a fact, that people will discuss our wedding for years to come...can't say enough great things. The only thing that upsets me is that I can't do it again 100 times over. We love WOD and Merrimakers!

Merri-Makers catered our wedding at The Ashford Estate in Allentown, NJ. The food was delicious, the staff was very professional and the service was perfect. The cocktail hour appetizers were the perfect start to the evening. They offered a large selection of reception meals for us to choose from. The food was served at the perfect temperature and the sides were arranged very elegantly. Our guests are still talking about the passed desserts and fondue table. We would not have changed a thing about our food.
