We knew instantly when we had our tour last year that this was the place we were going to have our special day! We are so great full for Sowmya our wedding day coordinator she went above and beyond making our wedding day truly amazing, everything ran so smoothly because of her. She made sure every detail was taken care of, Sowmya is the absolute best.
I must say our dinner was incredible, the chef and the staff at the Royal Ashburn did an awesome job, our guests are still talking about how delicious their dinner was!
The cedar gardens ceremony site was intimate and felt just like a fairy tale, the gardens around the property are beautiful, the pond was our favourite, great for wedding day photos. Definitely lots of places for the perfect shot. We went with the Ashburn room, it was very elegant and everything looked so beautiful. we absolutely loved how we had access to the sunroom and patio for cocktail hour.
Thank you so much Royal ashburn staff and Sowmya for making our day so special. We will always remember our perfect day here ❤️

We want to give a colossal shoutout to Sowmya, our event coordinator, who went above and beyond in helping us not only plan for the big day but taking care of everything she could during the ceremony to ensure things were smooth. Even though we had a few hiccups with our vendors, Sowmya stepped in and saved the day many times and ensured that everything fit within our budget. She communicated with us every step of the way and we were extremely lucky to have her!!
Thank you so much Sowmya
A Magical Evening and I didn't worry about a thing
A Dreamy Wedding Experience at Royal Ashburn Golf Club
One of the standout features of our wedding planning journey was the exceptional guidance and support provided by Lindsey Stevens, our dedicated wedding coordinator. Lindsey's warm and welcoming demeanor immediately put us at ease. She went above and beyond to ensure that every detail of our big day was perfectly tailored to our vision. Lindsey's flexibility was nothing short of remarkable; she effortlessly handled last-minute changes and adjustments with a smile, proving her commitment to making our wedding day as magical as possible.
Sowmya Boddu, another valuable member of the Royal Ashburn team, played a pivotal role on the day of our wedding. Her attentiveness and organization were evident as she orchestrated the events of the day flawlessly. Sowmya's professionalism and genuine care made us feel like true VIPs, allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in the joy of the moment without a worry in the world.
The culinary delights at Royal Ashburn are truly something to behold. Our guests are still raving about the delectable dishes served at our reception. The bocconcini chicken and prime rib were nothing short of culinary masterpieces. The prime rib (which is what I had) was cooked to perfection, was tender and flavorful, leaving a lasting impression on our taste buds. The culinary team's dedication to excellence was evident in every bite, making our wedding reception an unforgettable gastronomic experience.
As if the exceptional service and delectable cuisine weren't enough, the Royal Ashburn Golf Club boasts picturesque grounds that served as the perfect backdrop for our wedding photos. The beautiful gardens, charming archway, serene pond, and whimsical swing added a touch of elegance and natural beauty to our special day. Our photographs turned out absolutely stunning, capturing the essence of our love against the enchanting backdrop of the venue's lush surroundings.

Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude for the memories they helped create.

Wonderful Wedding Venue
Special thanks to our coordinator, Sowmya, who made sure every detail was taken care of. Sowmya was a pleasure to deal with, answered all of my questions quickly and provided her suggestions. On our wedding day, we were dealing with thunderstorm warnings, and Sowmya made sure to monitor the weather and keep us updated on the plan. She helped take so much stress of off us on our big day, and we really appreciated it. The weather cooperated, and we ended up being able to have our ceremony outside in the Woodland Garden, which was breathtakingly beautiful. The grounds where we took our photos were also stunning!
The second part of our wedding was held in the Compton room, which was a beautiful room for our reception! The meals were fantastic and the staff were wonderful. The main courses we selected (bocconcini chicken and prime rib) were just delicious. We got so many comments from our guests about how good the food was.
Thank you to Sowmya and the staff at the Royal Ashburn Golf Club for making our wedding day so special! I would highly recommend the Royal Ashburn Golf Club for a perfect wedding day.
Our May 2023 wedding at Royal Ashburn far exceeded our expectations.
Our wedding coordinator, Sowmya is a hero. We did not have a wedding planner, so we took on all the planning, coordination and misc. on our own. Sowmya recognized this, and proceeded to guide, support, comfort and help a LOT to allow us to experience a joyful and low stress wedding day! She checked in with us regularly, coordinated with our vendors and kept us on schedule on the wedding day, was accommodating to all our last minute changes, and even helped us herself and brought staff volunteers to assist with our decorations!
We are so thankful to Sowmya and team for making this an experience that we will never forget. Our guests loved the wedding and we won't hesitate to recommend Royal Ashburn to friends.
Sowmya Boddu was extremely professional and experienced!
Amazing day :)
Wedding of Our Dreams!
Everything went exactly as planned. Gorgeous day! Delicious food! Everyone raved about it!
Full disclosure, I am not a planner, which is one of the many reasons I chose the Ashburn! All of our vendors were off their preferred list and each one was ideal. They'd all worked together loads and allowed me to relax and focus on getting married. Ceremony and Event space all in one and MY GOODNESS the amount of gorgeous locations for photos. We have the most beautiful fall photos we will cherish for years to come. Thank You guys!!!!
