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!

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!

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.

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.

I absolutely loved my wedding! Actually everyone loved the wedding! I can't speak highly enough about Olivia, my wedding coordinator. She was so pleasant to work with both before and during the wedding, She made the event a success. If you work with the Castle it is a TRUE one stop shopping place, all vendors work seemlessly together, professionally and fun! You really feel like every one involved in the planning of the wedding is there for you and is part of your family.

We had our wedding at The Castle at Ashley Manor on 3/23/13 and it was the best day of our lives! Olivia, Jeff & the whole team at The Castle were truly amazing. Olivia was so helpful throughout the whole process - from helping with menu selection & flowers to coordinating the day-of, I absolutely could not have done it without her. Everyone raved about the food and the staff that was helping throughout the evening was very attentive and personable. Jeff was our DJ and he was incredible. He really controlled the entire event and made sure everything ran smoothly. Our guests were dancing ALL night and commented on how great the music selection was. One of my favorite parts was the limbo - classic! Honestly, I would recommend The Castle to anyone. It is such a beautiful venue and the team makes wedding planning a breeze! I cannot thank them enough for helping make our wedding day so special!

One of my favorite parts was the limbo - classic! Honestly, I would recommend The Castle to anyone. It is such a beautiful venue and the team makes wedding planning a breeze! I cannot thank them enough for helping make our wedding day so special! Read less

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!!! :)

Our wedding was February 2nd, 2013. Overall, the wedding venue was perfect! The girls were terrific. I had my heart set on having a brooch bouquet and Olivia made that happen. They got back to emails quickly and always called us back when we had questions. We would definitely recommend this venue to any future brides. Everyone is still talking about how much fun they had and how it was the best wedding they've been to.

The staff at the Castle were absolutely AMAZING! We only had 2 months to plan our wedding since my husband was deploying in November and they made everything so easy. They did more than just make sure the necessary things were planned and organized; they went above and beyond with their customer service and were extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of planning a wedding. They do everything that is in their power to make sure your day is as perfect as you ever dreamed it would be! Beyond the amazing staff (and I mean EVERYONE: the coordinators, owners, DJ, banquet/set up staff, bartender, etc), the venue is absolutely gorgeous, both inside and out. People are still talking about how it was one of the nicest weddings they have ever been to, and we didn't even do anything extra! The venue and services provided are enough to make your wedding the most exquisite fairytale come true!

We held my daughter's wedding reception at the Castle. My daughter & son-in-law fell in love with The Castle the first time they saw it. We had walked in one Saturday unannounced and the staff was open & friendly. They treated us as if we had an appointment. They walked us around their beautiful grounds, gave us informational brochures and were not pushy. That was not the same at other reception sites we looked at. They were professionals who were wonderful to work with throughout the wedding/reception process. They are an all inclusive venue that gave us choices of using all or part of their services. They did the wedding flowers. They were well done & the flowers were delivered as scheduled to our church. The flowers lasted for days after the event (which is not an easy task in Arizona during June's 100+ degree temperatures). The reception was beautiful & ran smoothly. All our guests commented all night on how wonderful everything was. One word kept coming up in their comments - "Classy". In addition, we received many comments on how good Jeff the DJ was. He was responsible for how smoothly things went. One of our out of town guests from St. Louis area said that the DJ was the best DJ she had ever seen. The bar set up was very professional. Everything from beginning to end went off without any glitches. And the amzing thing in the end was that we had stayed within our set budget. The Castle gave us all options, worked with us in our decisions & respected those decisons. There were no surprise costs. I would strongly recommend this venue!

We had searched practically every ceremony/reception site in Phoenix and finally came upon Ashley Manor and fell in love. We were looking for an outside, garden-esque venue and this place had it all. The ceremony site has a gazebo surrounded by greenery and flowers with a quaint little waterfall next to it-perfect for pictures. They have a cocktail area complete with bar that can keep guests entertained while photos are taken after the ceremony. And last, the reception hall is gorgeous. We wanted to get married in April and ended up booking the site a year and a half in advance (we got the last April date available-it books up quick). The staff were very good about calling to make sure everything was in order and encourage me to call with any questions. If I had to leave a message, they were very quick to respond. Knowing the site well, they also gave me great advice as to ideas for the cocktail hour, decorations, etc. As our day approached, they were very good about contacting me to make sure all the details were in order. The day of the wedding, the coordinator was fantastic. I felt like I didn't have to worry about a thing because they had everything taken care of. Thanks to them and their hard work I was able to really enjoy my wedding day. Thanks again!

The Castle at Ashley Manor is a beautiful venue and very well-maintained. Laura and her staff provided great flexibility when we made a last minute decision to move the reception indoors. She also worked closely with us on every detail including the flowers, catering, music and the wedding cake. Having a place that offers so many options onsite saved a considerable amount of time and money. It was the perfect day for me, my husband and all of our guests. I would highly recommend this vendor.

What do I say about the castle? Then entire experience was picture perfect from beginning to end! Laura was so flexible, and even though we decided on the Imperial package, worked in the flowers that we wanted and everything else! She was such a great communicator and kept us in mind throughout the year! I was so happy to be able to share our day with such a wonderful and kind person! I had ideas, and where I had blanks, she filled them in!

The Castle is a well oiled engine! Everything ran so smoothly and I felt comfort knowing the people who I was working with were looking out for me and my wedding! DJ Jeff Nelson is fabulous to work with, and we really enjoyed having Piece of Cake do our cake! We got exactly what we wanted and were so overwhelmed by the kindness and thoughtfulness throughout the process! I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone! They are truly one of a kind and exactly what a bride needs for her wedding!

Every time I told someone where I was getting married they right away knew the place and said I was lucky. And people who went to my wedding and have never been there before wanted to get married there. Everyone there where really sweet and made our day even special by giving us advice or ideas like having my husband walk down the aisle with both our grandmothers was perfect!

The bottom line is in Arizona there isn't any place that can provide outstanding services and professionalism and make a bride and groom truly feel as if they are the only people in the world. The Castle At Ashley Manor (TCASM) just flat out rocked for us!

Being an all inclusive package might scare lots of folks off, I will admit we were hesitant at first until we began working with the girls and saw how perfect and awesome they made everything come to be for us! There was ZERO wedding day stress for anyone in the wedding party and the entire evening was simply perfection defined.

The entire reception was such a relaxed day and they already had everything set up for us all we had to do was show up which was perfect! The Castle had everything and every detail turned out exactly as we imagined from the delicious food provided by LUX catering, and of course their beautiful flowers. Our flowers was just as we envisioned and I could not imagined it was my boquet! Words can not truly describe how perfect our wedding day was thank you to the staff at The Castle at Ashley Manor.

The girls at Ashley Manor were more helpful and attentive than I ever could have asked for. They were professional, and were always available to answer any of my questions or concerns. They were knowledgeable, and had many recommendations for providers of other wedding services. We had our ceremony here, and the fact that everything was setup beforehand, music, chairs, guestbook table, etc. made the day go that much smoother. It was amazing to not have to worry about the ceremony, and just show up with everything done! They even assembled the bouquets for my bridal party (an item that had been forgotten about), cutting the stems, assembling them, and tying the ribbons. They went out of their way to make sure the day was perfect, and I am so grateful for that! The venue is gorgeous, and meticulously manicured and maintained. They had just finished renovations that had taken place over the past months, it looks amazing! Overall, I would recommend Ashley Manor to any bride who wants a beautiful venue and attentive, extraordinary staff.

I planned my wedding in about 5 months and without Ashley Manor I couldn't have done it. All of the Vendors were amazing and easy to work with. The only thing I had to get on my own was my photographer who was also amazing! My wedding was great and everything I wanted it to be. The site is gorgeous and very romantic.

When we were looking for a venue to have our Wedding, it was the same long sales pitch until we came to The Ashley Castle. Not only was it the most beautiful venue we had visited, But the value and professionalism was the selling point for us. It was refreshing to actually speak with the people that will be planning and executing our event. They were friendly, helpful and never pressured us into any of our decisions, They gave us some really good advise when we asked and were always willing to meet with us at any time along the process.
We went with the Imperial Package, It was so refreshing to know that everything was going to be perfect and it was. Laura was so much fun to meet with, she made us feel like family and helped us with all the flowers, colors and anything else we had questions about. Chrystie was lots of fun too. But I must say, DJ Jeff Nelson went above and beyond the call of duty to make our event a success. I thought DJ's just played music and told everyone when to eat and cut the cake, Jeff did so much more. He arrived hours before the event and made sure that everything was set up correctly, then he corresponded with the catering staff, Photographer and videographer about everything we had planned. He even had printed timelines for everyone. He checked on us throughout the night to make sure we were happy and doing well. DJ Jeff Nelson did exactly everything we asked him to, and even did more to make our event extra special. If you considering booking your event at The Ashley Castle, I would definitely recommend it, and I would recommend the Imperial Package, The Food was exceptional, The tastings were fun, the staff was professional and made us feel comfortable, The DJ was amazing and now our Wedding was truly Unforgettable. GREAT JOB!!!

I had THE BEST time planning my wedding at The Castle. The moment I saw the venue, I fell in love! Jessica and the other girls are fun, welcoming, and friendly. They remembered my face, my husband's face, and my family.

They worked with us on price since we had a tight budget. They kept me calm and relatively stress-free. My one criticism would be that we paid for "security," but did not see any evidence of such a thing on our wedding day.

The Castle has all inclusive and definitely delivers! The flowers were gorgeous, the food delicious. If I could do it all over again, I would still choose The Castle!

The Castle is such a beautiful venue. The pictures turned out just amazing. The staff met with me anytime I requested a meeting. Everything that they promised came to be. They took items I brought in to decorate with, and made every detail perfect. The flowers were amazing! Isabelle did a beautiful job. My bouquet made me cry it was so beautiful. The food was delicious. We had so much fun attending all the tastings there! It is hard to catch the staff via phone, but email always worked for me. The price for the package we chose was the most affordable we found. Which amazed us, because the Castle is the most beautiful venue!

No bride can walk into this manor without falling in love with it! Hold your wedding ceremony & reception here and you will not be disappointed. Our wedding was the most beautiful, romantic day at the Castle. 4 months later I am still getting compliments about how wonderful this place was. They offer many flexible packages and have competitive pricing. Make sure you book way ahead of time. This place is popular! I worked with some wonderful ladies...Jessica, Olivia and Isabelle. They are terrific and know exactly how to make your day perfect. Go see this place!

I just had my wedding at The Castle and it was awesome. The staff are great, especially Jeff, the DJ. He was involved with every aspect and I felt at ease with him coordinating everything. A few little things were off but no wedding goes perfectly. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend them to any couple looking for an all in one wedding location. Really, the location is gorgeous, food is delicious, and you will not have to worry the day of.

I had been living in Chandler for 11yrs, and every time I drove by the Castle, i always wished to have my wedding there. My husband and I met while working at the Walt Disney World Resort and knew the Castle would be perfect. We had our concerns after reading some reviews, we printed them and took them to our first meeting. Jeff Nelson (the DJ) reassured us that what was on those reviews would not occur at our event and upon further research, i found out the reviews were written by an angry bride who exaggerated and lied about everything she wrote. Reassured and excited, we picked the "Imperial" package and it was the best decision we made. Laura made us feel very comfortable, she explained everything thoroughly, Jeff made several suggestions that worked like a charm, and Olivia sat with us during our last meeting and was absolutely wonderful, answering all out questions, no matter how many. All in all it was a great experience, i was very happy, the decor was exactly what we wanted, the flowers were gorgeous and the food is great!

Ashley Manor is amazing!! Cynthia and Keira work hard to make sure that your day goes as smoothly as possible and they made everything so easy. I used the vendors with the sunset package and couldn't have been happier! The gardens are absolutely gorgeous!! I am sad that I don't get to see them any more now that the wedding is over, they are so peaceful. The only complaint that I had was the bartenders. He was not very friendly and some guests (not in the wedding party) were refused drinks before the ceremony even though others (also not in the wedding party) were given drinks.

We loved Ashley Manor and so did our guests. The day went off nearly flawlessly. Their communication was not always the best, but everyone was very friendly and willing to help. Their open houses are a great chance to meet the vendors they contract with. Tracy does AMAZING flowers and Nancy Ray's cakes are the BEST EVER!! All our guests raved about the food served and they accommodated our special diet requests with no problems. My biggest complaint was that the DJ stopped my aisle music before I got to the altar, even after we told him we had it timed out perfectly to end when I got there. Call me a Bridezilla, but it did bother me greatly even though no one noticed.

The Castle was amazing! I had a fairy tale wedding! The whole experience far exceeded our expectations. When I arrived on wedding day and saw the reception area in the Castle, I was stunned at how beautiful it looked. My garden ceremony was great. The patio cocktail hour was fabulous, followed by an incredible reception. The staff surprised me with special lighting that matched my colors that reflected on the statues. The centerpieces and florals were exceptional. This was a five star wedding for a 3 star price. No resort could even compare to the cost of this wedding. It was so much better to be at a wedding venue and not at a resort where people are walking through the area. It was great to have an exclusive area for our guests only. The wedding coordinator kept us organized and she was so relaxed and flexible. When we made special requests to include a family tradition and also a candy bar at the last minute, it was no problem. My pictures are spectacular (especially in front of the large Castle doors shipped from a monastery in Europe)! We were so impressed and dazzled by our entire experience. If you want the best wedding ever, check out the Castle at Ashley Manor! Consider the Imperial package that is all inclusive.

My husband and I absolutely loved Ashley Manor. The surroundings are beautiful and looked amazing in all our pictures. This is a place I would recommend to anyone. It was like we were lost in each other's gaze in a garden of water fountains and trees. We took the sunset package with Ashley Manor which includes the ceremony & reception venue, the DJ (he's great by the way), the caterer, the cake, the flowers & decor and an on site wedding coordinator. The one thing I was a little disappointed about was that Ashley Manor rarely answered their phones; they would call back the next day though. Also, the price was one of the cheapest we found especially since it already had almost everything together. Plus for the beauty of the place, it was all worth it. Ashley Manor was also extremely flexible. Although we were alloted an 8-hour time frame, we actually came in an hour early to get ready and for pictures. I think Ashley Manor is a big reason my wedding day went so well.

Ashley Manor was a great location to hold the ceremony and reception. The ceremony was beautiful next to three water fountains (the fountains were quiet enough not to require a microphone). There were a dozen niches to photograph and enjoy the ambiance. The wedding went very smoothly, due to the wedding planner/coordinator provided by Ashley Manor. They had a great package with great vendors. They allowed us to bring our own beer and wine, making it affordable and personal. I would absolutely recommend holding your ceremony and reception at Ashley Manor. I dinged them on flexibility because they sometimes hold two weddings a day (morning and night). I wanted to decorate with balloons earlier than I could do to the earlier wedding. (Can't blame them for doing what they do). Overall, it was great!!!

We were recently married at Ashley Manor and it was truly a special experience. We were both so happy with the way everything turned out. We selected Ashley Manor because we thought it would give the feel of being in a big backyard and it did end up feeling that way. I must say that at some times responsiveness wasn't the best during the planning process and that concerned me a bit, but as the wedding got closer the responsiveness was great and everything was perfect on our wedding day. We are so happy we went with Ashley Manor and feel we really got the value for the cost there, along with some great service, especially on our wedding day. The catering staff were GREAT, really on top of things and a special shout-out goes to the bartender, who was incredibly on top of his job and was friendly and fit right in with the crowd. I had guests repeatedly tell me how much they liked our bartender, Jeff. All in all, it was a great experience working with Ashley Manor and I highly recommend booking with them, especially if you are looking for a bit of a unique atmosphere where you feel at home.

We actually used the Spanish hacienda side of Ashley Manor for our wedding, not the Castle. The setting at Ashley Manor is beautiful alone and when all dressed up for an event it really stands out. The girls at Ashley were easy to work with, very organized and consistent with getting things done, especially for such a stressful occasion! We had an inclusive package with Ashley, including flowers, catering, baker, decorations and DJ. They were able to incorporate our desires in most aspects. There was a problem with our flowers and they fixed it quickly and they turned out beautifully. We appreciated having several choices with our baker, however we would have liked to have other options for the catering. That being said, the catering manager worked very closely with us to develop a menu that perfectly matched our wishes.

The girls at Ashley Manor are great! They answered all of my questions and had enough advice for me that it all went off exactly like my husband and I wanted it to! They were flexible with things that I wanted, but the package includes all of the vendors (which is actually what really drew us to them in the first place). They set up some decorations for me that I had gotten so no one was worried about going early, and they let us come get ready before our "designated" time so that we had enough time to sneak photos in before my groom arrived.
I would recommend them for a wedding if you're looking for help planning and aren't trying to control 100% of your wedding details!

I first saw the Castle at a bridal show and was so impressed. I was even more impressed when I saw it in person, and knew I had to get married here. This place is all a bride could ever dream of, and more! It is so beautiful inside and out, and the girls are so helpful and great to work with. They made my day run so smoothly! It's a little pricey, but well worth the money.

I had the most beautiful wedding at The Ashley Castle! We opted to have a Friday wedding that was not all inclusive, so we brought in the bulk of our vendors. We loved that the Castle was happy and willing to have other vendors at the venue aside from those on their preferred list; we saved A LOT of money that way. Olivia was fabulous to work with! I just wish the other ladies at the Castle were as helpful as she was (not that they weren't willing, they just never seemed to be as "in the know" as Olivia). We had a few small problems in getting timely or complete communication from them, but overall it was a great experience. You need to check out this gorgeous venue, you won't regret it!

We had a few small problems in getting timely or complete communication from them, but overall it was a great experience. You need to check out this gorgeous venue, you won't regret it! Read less

I love Ashley Manor and I think the place is underestimated! It is beautiful and wonderful if it is what you are looking for your day. So many of our guests never knew about the Manor andwe got so many compliments on it. Working with their vendors was great! Loved working with their DJ-Jeff. He helped us our with our music and played the music I had given him when we met with him before our day (four pages worth!). Our guests loved the music and they danced!! Got many compliments on the music. Nancy Ray-who made our cake- was great! LOVED the cake!! Got many compliments on the cake and how it tasted! The catering was great, very warm to our guest and accommodating; had compliments on the food and guests had more than enough food. Loved the bartender..he was fun! The only concern I had was sometimes getting in touch with the ladies at the Manor-via email or phones. We were fortunate to live close by that we could drop by, otherwise I would of been worried. If they can tweek this, it would help. The ladies were great in working with us and are so flexible!! The Castle next door is a great setting, but if you are looking for something not too formal but still warm, inviting and a wonderful atmosphere, check out the Manor.

They try to help you in as many ways as possible, Olivia was wonderful! We were able to get in early enough to set up for the wedding. We were able to sue any vendors we wanted and decorate however we would like. At times difficult to get a hold of, but they did eventually get back to you. We reaffirmed everything and made sure we were all on the asme page. Beautiful venue, great location, great privacy, and great price!!

The venue itself is incredible, however, I was very disappointed in the staff and the cleanliness of the venue on my wedding day. We never worked with the same person the whole way through the wedding, I believe there were 3 women we worked with, which worried me because that leaves room for miscommunication. And it did. When I got to the Castle, the seating arrangement was wrong, even though the woman I talked with about it drew a sketch of how I wanted it. So I had to correct it myself. Then when I was getting ready, I felt rushed by one of the women, and then found out as I was walking down the aisle, that they had started the music too early and my family wasn't even fully seated and ready, so no one saw me walking down the aisle-not even my groom-and the music ended when we were halfway up to the altar. Then after we were married, we had given them a second cd to play while our family conversed, but it wouldn't play because of their player-they said it sometimes doesn't work in the sun. So we had no music, and it was very awkward. Then, taking pictures, I noticed that there were dead roaches and beetles on the ground inside and outside. And lastly, no one came and talked to us- asking if we were happy with the ceremony or not-it was very impersonal the day of. I feel that the venue was worth my money, but the staff wasn't- they were disappointing, because in the time leading up to the wedding, they were very nice and helpful, but the day of, it seemed like they had never done a wedding before!!

I hope this is helpful to you, and I would recommend this venue, because you could have a totally different experience, but let yourself be warned.

We had our wedding at The Castle. The place is definitely beautiful, but it was dirty. The bottom of my dress with completely black before I even walked down the aisle! When I mentioned this, I was told "your photographer will be able to clean that up in photos". That wasn't the point! People were going to see my dress right then! On top of all that, communication, or lack there of, of the works at The Castle. The only outstanding person was Isabelle. When I had a question, I knew that I would never get someone to answer the phone if I called, so I would email. Isabelle's response to my emails was almost immediate. Jessica would take days and never fully answer my questions. The night of the wedding, Isabelle came to say that she would be leaving, but I was never told who would be in charge. Jessica left without saying anything. On top of it all, they lost a brooch that I purchased especially for my cake.

Don't waste your time! Although the venue is beautiful....they don't do ANYTHING!!!! and they will lie straight to your face!!!! Thank god I hired a wedding planner which I was prompted to do by the bad reviews we read about this place. We had a lot of details planned in our wedding and we were told all along that our vendors could get in at 10:30 to set up. The DJ kept telling us he thought there was another wedding, but both Laura and Isabelle insisted there wasn't. We didn't find out until the rehearsal that there actually was and that vendors could only get in 1 1/2 hours before the event. Everything was rushed!!! The people at the castle did not help set up even their own table and chairs, etc. There were so many details that I had planned that were not done because of time. Their contract reads that a staff member would be on site. They all left before the wedding was even set up! Our bartender had to keep leaving his station to get things for the "our" wedding planner. This was not his job since we were already paying him to bartend not to be staff for the castle!

The Castle is an incredible looking venue; we fell in love with it right away! We had our ceremony in the garden and our reception indoors. You can see for yourself how anyone would want to have their wedding there when you visit. There is little problem with the venue itself, the PROBLEM lies with its STAFF.
Many of the wedding coordinators are very nice and helpful, but between the time that I booked the venue and my wedding date (over a year) I didn't work with the same coordinator twice, nor did I ever see many of them again, except for Laura. Laura is extremely difficult to work with to the point that many vendors refuse to do any work at the Castle. Everything (from set up of the site to processional down the aisle) was her way or the highway…we just ignored here and did what we wanted to anyway, (but it was annoying!) The staff was difficult to get a hold of both via phone and email -- but they sure were eager to talk to you when they wanted payment! We paid just for the venue, which was about $10k and all we got with the venue was ceremony/reception chairs and tables and an on-site coordinator. (They have options for floral packages and catering but I was told by one of the other coordinators that it's cheaper to just book the venue and do add-on's later if you decide you want them. Some small things are included if you want them too, but I didn’t.) After getting to know the staff, we opted to take everything to outside vendors anyway. Their idea of on-site coordinating was literally just being there until I walked down the aisle and then they left. I may be biased since I plan events for a living and I would never have left my event site as the coordinator, but I thought that was odd.
I went for a meeting that I opted to have less than a week before to review details with Laura. Even after over a year of planning she had many of the details screwed up. For example, after we explicitly told her multiple times we needed her to hire wine servers and have cocktail tables for us on the patio she still didn’t know we needed that. It probably is due largely to their inefficient system of writing notes on scrap pieces of paper and sticking it in a folder with your name and wedding date on it. She also had us meet with the DJ that day…after I told her repeatedly, all year long, from day one that we wouldn’t be having a DJ, we would be having a live band! They REALLY need to work on their organization.
In this meeting, we also saw that the quality of the outdoor ceremony chairs was horrendous. It was so bad that I demanded they bring in new chairs. Laura flat out refused at first, it was her husband George that actually agreed. (This is a family run business, the Castle is owned by Laura’s parents and her and George run the show. We really enjoyed working with George, though - he was very helpful.) I was told by George that they went ahead and purchased new chairs, but they weren’t going to be there in time for my wedding day, so I insisted they rent chairs for our day. They didn’t like it but I wasn’t going to have my guests sitting in gross looking, dilapidated, rickety chairs….some of the seats of the chairs had even caved in under the cushions! (They are wooden and had been sitting out in the sun for 6 years, since they opened the venue.) It was literally a safety hazard and I told them that.
One of the big perks of this place is that they allow you to bring in your own alcohol, however, it is required that you hire their bartending service, Medieval Spirits (who happens to be run by Laura’s brother, Adam) He and his staff were nice enough, but Laura demanded for them that they get their tip up front (since we chose to have no tip jars on the bars) and we thought that was in poor taste. Because of the rudeness, we decided only to tip them what they “required”, which was $300, when in reality we were planning to give them double. I also found out later from friends that my guests were all tipping them anyway and they actually accepted money from them! Tacky!
One of the big selling points for me was that it is a private venue, so you won’t have random people wandering in to your party. Or so I thought. With Ashley Manor being next door, and a wedding at a similar time to ours, we ended up with a ton of people wandering into the Castle. I was sitting in the bridal room and I could see out the window and watched a bunch of people I didn’t know walk in. My bridesmaids intervened, but it wasn’t until after they signed my guestbook!! I would advise you to put some sort of sign out front indicating whose wedding it is (but I wouldn’t put your full names, just to be able to pick out legitimate party crashers! We got some of those, too, later in the evening!)
It appears as if this venue is in some major financial trouble. They have slipped on the maintenance/upkeep of the grounds quite a bit. It is pricey for what you get but we obviously thought it was the best venue around which is why we chose it (since we didn’t want to go to a resort.) I wouldn’t necessarily dissuade you entirely from getting married there if your heart was set on it, but just know in advance what you are up against and you’ll be alright. On the wedding day, everything was beautiful (thanks to MY outside vendors!) went off with minimal hitches, and the guests had a blast….and so did we!

For a relatively new venue, there were too many areas in need of repair/maintenance and the service was terrible. I am a former meeting planner and no bridezilla. If I had been there would have been a major scene instead of a beautiful wedding.

The Good:
1. Beautiful entry and front area.
2. Main room is lovely, although the chairs even then were looking used.
3. Initial wedding coordinator was very helpful. Unfortunately, her "due date" was the week of our wedding and she passed us off to a rookie.
4. Vendor event they hosted helped us to choose photographer, officiant, DJ and caterer. All were great!
5. Pricing overall was reasonable.
6. The ceremony at sunset with a pending storm was spectacular!

The Bad:
1. Numerous issues getting return phone calls. I ended up just taking over myself.
2. The newbie coordinator didn't even know which side I should stand on for my walk down the aisle and she almost broke the sugar gazebo for one of my cakes.
3. There was serious green slime/algae in the fountain in the back when we arrived for the rehearsal. We pointed it out to the managers. When we arrived for the wedding, someone had dumped a bunch of chemical in the fountain and it was a bubble bath!
4. They put up a makeshift spotlight in the corner next to our cake because the lights in the corner were burned out. The hot lights next to the display melted the cotton candy being used to simulate clouds in the cake display.
5. Someone stole $100 cash from my purse in the bride's room. I should have known better, but we were told that security was on-site.
6. As the bridal party was being introduced for the reception, my husband looked out the front door to see the castle's bartender loading cases of our alcohol into his car.
7. I had to leave the bridal room to referee the reception setup. The newbie was changing my seating arrangement and table settings.
