I just want to take a moment to thank Cindy for a wonderful evening.  These types of events never get together without a lot of work behind the scenes.  You and your team did a great job.  And, when there was a small hiccup you and your team quickly and effortlessly made everything work.  The food was great, the venue was great, and your efforts were outstanding.  If you ever need an endorsement feel free to reach out to me.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience at the Ashton Depot.  Our group is actually pretty difficult to impress and you and the entire team did!  We had numerous guests that are owners of restaurants in Texas and the Midwest and they were amazed at how you all could serve a large group of people and have all of the food taste so good. The presentation was also a very nice touch.

Every time I mentioned to someone in Fort Worth that we were having the wedding at the Ashton Depot, they told me about the service. You have a very good reputation for quality service, which was noted when you all had to deal with the rain to making sure the sparklers were handed out and lit for the departure.

Miguel Jasso was a delight that evening. I do not know how he did it but he would appear out of nowhere to make sure the event was going like we wanted. He also did a great job of making us feel special, too.  And I cannot say enough good things about Cindy Vazquez. She was very helpful and informative. She also listened but added suggestions when appropriate. She was a joy to work with.

I’m trying to think of another event that we can have at the Ashton Depot or at least have catered.  Please thank everyone for us!

The Ashton Depot staff from start to finish for the Jazz Butterfly Blitz was outstanding! Cindy got us started and ensured that the planning and details were in order. Cathy was such the professional during the last two weeks when we changed the seating diagram at least 10 times and then added food for 35 more guests on March 7th.

Our guests gave the best compliments for the food and ambiance. Overall, I would rate my experience a 9.

Our hostess shared the following, “I cannot express to you how AWESOME The Ashton Depot team was.  I’ve been told by anyone I’ve spoken with if they were to ever have a party to call The Ashton Depot.  They were so professional, the food was awesome, and we did not want or need for anything!”

Our Granddaughter got married on New Year’s Eve. The weather had turned bad and the ceremony at the T&P was a total debacle. We arrived at The Ashton and I cannot begin to tell you how perfect the entire evening was. The service was impeccable. The food was amazing, and the decor beautiful. It was indeed a fairy tale reception. Thank you so much for a stress-free evening after a rather rough start at another venue.

I cannot think of a single thing that Ashton Depot could have handled any better.  I would rate everything a “10” without hesitation.  I find myself hoping someone else has an event there to which I am invited.  Please give my best to the entire staff for making the wedding a huge success.

I just wanted to send you a note to share with the staff my sincerest thanks for taking such good care of our guests and us. I cannot tell you how many people have reached out and said it was the best venue, food and service they had ever had at a wedding.

Please pass a sincere thanks to Miguel; he took amazing care of my husband and me all evening. Also, to Chef, I told him that evening, but please share with him how amazing the food was and that all our guests commented on how phenomenal it all was.

You all did such a great job of making sure everything was smooth and that I was doing ok all night long and I just cannot possibly thank you all enough. Thanks again!

Thank you for your email and thanks to all the Ashton Depot staff that made Sarah and Ryan’s reception so wonderful.  We received many compliments about the food, the service, and the venue.

I think everything was a ‘10’ the best.  And I will definitely recommend The Ashton Depot as a place to consider for any future event.

Richardson/Barrera Wedding Reception
December 2, 2017

Everything was absolutely perfect. The Ashton Depot team did so much for us. Cindy Vazquez answered thousands of questions via email and in person and always responded quickly and extremely politely. We loved working with her!

And we met Miguel on our wedding day and knew immediately he certainly knows what he’s doing! He really helped with the flow of things and making sure not only we but also our families were fed. Wendy was our personal Butler and she was so on top of things with offering to get us anything we needed! Thank you so much!!! So extremely thankful and happy we decided to have our wedding there.

All three categories, planning, food, and service, are a TEN by far!!! We got so many compliments on the food and it personally blew my expectations out of the water! There was so much, and the meal looked like food you’d get at a nice restaurant, rather than typical wedding food. Can’t say enough! I plan on writing a review on the Knot but feel free to add these comments anywhere or let me know a place to review! 🙂

We give you 10+ on event planning, food and beverage, and service!! Leading up to the event, the planning was top notch and you were always there to answer my questions.

People are still raving about the food, and Miguel and his team did a phenomenal job in taking care of every single one of our needs. Thank you again for everything you did to help me with planning this!

October 14, 2017

Thank you for reaching out and we would rate the entire experience as a 10, across the board. Each representative of Ashton Depot was exemplary, responsive to every question and simply a joy to work with throughout the wedding planning processes.

My only follow up is I wish we had included in the wedding program mention of the photo booth and s’mores bar as not all our guests were aware and missed out.  The only other thing I wish we had done was a better sound check before the event started. Our nephew played the guitar for the processional and some of our guests said they couldn’t hear him or the officiant.

I do not feel either of these were Ashton Depot’s responsibility but because your team was so helpful with good ideas in planning the event I wanted to share my rookie mistakes so that maybe they can offer this info to other wedding rookies.

I will definitely recommend Ashton Depot to anyone I know that is planning an event in Fort Worth.

All the wedding gang have gone now and I want to take a moment to express my deep gratitude for all you and your team at Ashton Depot did for us last night. I appreciate your patience at my dithering about whether to move the wedding inside or not until it was decided for us. All my schedules and notebooks couldn’t compete with Mother Nature and everyone did a wonderful job accommodating all the changes that ensued.

I truly appreciate your understanding and professionalism in all the flower moving, chair rearrangement, music and wedding party “herding”, photography and schedule changes.

Tell Cesar, Miguel, and everyone else how wonderful we felt everything was. I know we will be hearing raves about the menu and food for a long, long time. I especially thank you, Cindy, for guiding me through all the details this year and truthful reassurances that you would take care of everything. Other than the rain, I truly would not have changed a thing.

Susan Astroff, Mother of the Bride
Astroff/Kline Wedding Ceremony & Reception

I have to say everything at The Ashton Depot was a perfect day! I was particularly impressed that the venue was so willing to let the bridal party get to the venue so early – we did not know the photographer would want to take so many pictures inside and the venue was so accommodating.

We loved the service, we loved the food – we could not have asked for anything better! Thank you for making it such a fantastic day for all of us!

I wanted to let you know that Cesar, Armando and Francisco did a fabulous job Saturday evening for our event at TMS. The food, presentation and service were remarkable. We really appreciate all the effort and coordination it takes to cater our event. Please pass on our thanks to Cesar and his group.

We appreciate Cesar personally coming out each year and making our event memorable for myself, and all of our guests. This was the sixth year in a row the Ashton Depot has helped us with our June event at the Speedway. We look forward to doing it again next June.

I simply adore everything you, Chef & Miguel did to make our event just right. The food was not only amazing, but presentation was beautiful.  When I recommend you guys, I always talk about your personal service. Having you host an event for us for over 300 and now one for barely over 30 guest, you all made us feel so special and important. I know that we will for sure use Ashton Depot for our next event and highly recommend you to anyone who asks. Have a great summer.

We were very happy with the service during the reception. I cannot express how pleased we are and how many great comments were made on the taste of the food and the location, which made a perfect backdrop for pictures.

Please give kudos to Miguel for his professionalism during our set-up and the day of the event.

Cathy and Cindy were wonderful and very professional throughout our entire planning stage, making our event a success and stress free! Both were always readily available by email and in person. With so many other customers you had prior to our event and shortly after, this was especially meaningful to us.

Please extend our thank you to all the staff, including the chef!

The service from the staff at the Ashton Depot was exceptional. We really enjoyed working with them. We would rate your event planning, food and beverage, and service all 10s. Everybody especially loved the food and the mojitos. Since the event multiple people have commented how smoothly everything ran and a couple of people asked if we would recommend y’all for future events (which we did). Cindy and Miguel were both a pleasure to work with and made our day memorable. We would like to extend our thanks to all of the staff for their hard work.

Thank you for the sweet words and compliments – I am grateful you noticed the special details and took the time to reach out to let me know.

I can’t even come up with the words that can best describe how simply amazing everyone was at Ashton Depot for our wedding on Saturday.

Truly – this was the best team of people I’ve ever worked with. We were so impressed with every detail, the service, the kindness and the food was crazy good! We LOVED IT. The chef was so kind and he is so, so, so talented, he is amazing! That’s how we felt about everyone. It was perfection. Miguel and Cindy were incredible and I just can’t say enough about the fabulous job they did. Miguel and Cindy always made us feel special and appreciated and I just couldn’t love them both more for handling everything for us. The synchronized plate service was so impressive and a one-of-a-kind special thing that added to the magic of the night, as was everything else. I would give them all a ’10’ on every single aspect of the night. They handled anything that came their way, always calmed me down and reassured me everything would be fine, they took it upon themselves to make sure we were all taken care of and went the extra mile to get anything we wanted. I was so impressed.

My only sad, sad, sad thing was, my husband and I didn’t get to have one the chef’s famous barbacoa tacos. :)) Maybe one of these days I’ll get him to do an event for me.

Please pass on my sincere appreciation to everyone and please let Shirlee know all my guests were big time impressed. I hope that we made you guys feel proud of your amazing venue.

The event was amazing! I know our team was very pleased. As I mentioned to Miguel, the wait staff was extremely professional and very helpful. Often this is an area that receives little attention but is just as important as all of the other elements that combine to make for a truly wonderful event.

And again, I greatly appreciate all your assistance in coordinating the evening. Compliments to Chef as well, the food was delicious, as we anticipated. Seems we had a few last minute food requests and I thank you for making that happen.
