I can't say enough how grateful we are to the staff at the Royal Ashburn. We are particularly thankful for Rikki Lund, the wedding coordinator at RA who went above and beyond to help us have the most amazing covid wedding. We opted for the ready set wedding on October 11. Everything went smoothly, the venue is absolutely beautiful! the photographer and the florist used for the ready set wedding were great as well.Sent on 27/10/2020

Our original date of July 11, 2020 was cancelled due to Covid. The team at RA provided an alternative option for October 11. All things considered, it was a great day all around. The room was spectacular, Natalie was super organized, keeping my stress to a minimum. We couldn't have asked for any better food, the DJ was super fun and kept the night moving along. the dance floor was never empty, with family dancing and having a fabulous time. It wasn't the wedding we had invisioned in July, it was much better!!! thank you Natalie and Amanda.Sent on 14/10/2020

Had our wedding there on October 3rd, 2020. What can I say. It turned out better than we could ever have dreamed. Our Dominican Republic wedding got cancelled in the summer and we were pretty upset. But as soon as we saw what the Royal Ashburn had to offer we were excited again. The greatest thing about Royal Ashburn has been the people. Right from Amanda and the booking process to our Co-coordinator Rikki. They did not ever say "NO" to anything. They always found a way and were so supportive during the entire planning process and during our special day. Vanessa and I can't thank them enough for how amazing they made us and our guests feel on our day. The grounds are spectacular, ceremony area was perfect, food was awesome, reception hall so beautiful and the service just Awesome.
If you are thinking about getting married, make sure you look here first. I promise you will not be disappointed. We can't thank you enough Rikki.Sent on 13/10/2020

Royal Ashburn really made our dream wedding a reality. Natalie was super helpful and always accommodating. During the pandemic, they weren't doing food tastings, but it was super important to us to have one. They managed to arrange one for us and we were not disappointed. The food, the wine, EVERYTHING was awesome. On the day of our wedding, Natalie made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. There are so many places to take pictures. We cannot thank her enough. LOVED every moment of our wedding here.Sent on 10/09/2020

The best venue - hands down (written by a COVID bride)
Royal Ashburn (and specifically Rikki Lund the coordinator) made my big day.
I, like many others, was a COVID bride. I've read the horror stories of some venues and was so thankful that the Royal Ashburn was not one of them. Not only did the answer all of my questions and have supreme patience with me - but they went out of their way to accommodate me through the rollercoaster that was the summer of 2020.
We started off with 150 people, then just 10 for a majority of the summer, then to 50 people outside for only the ceremony, to three weeks before the wedding allowing 50 people inside. Rikki was with me and accommodated my numbers the whole way. It was nice to feel like I had someone on my team. Rikki helped me plan, re-plan and plan again when it came to table positions, numbers and just about everything. I don't know where I would have been without her. She responded to every. single. email. Even I thought at some points I was being excessive.
The food was phenomenal (we had the stuffed chicken and the prime rib), the grounds were clean and beautiful and the service was helpful and friendly. Richard the bar tender deserve special mention. What a beaut! He was so lovely.
I'm going to be honest here - at the tasting in November I wasn't enthralled with the food or wine. I believe they changed chefs though and the food for our reception dinner and wedding was delicious. Everyone finished their plates. I know, I went around and talked to the tables during dinner lol.
I will admit, I was super impressed with the look and convenience of the new cabins (it's where myself, my bridal party and my Moms got ready the morning of) - however I wasn't impressed that it wasn't included in the package, it was very expensive and the rules were very strict. It would have been a great help to have had it as part of the package for the night before/night of. It has 4 double beds, so none of our guests (couples could really stay overnight) and we couldn't use it for our big night unless we wanted to sleep in separate beds). Plus there are no hotels close to the venue - 20 minutes away. It would have been very helpful to at least have a shuttle or something to offer the guests who were drinking.
Overall, my big day was more then I could have expected. I wish I could do it again (with the same guy). We had a grand finale of fireworks, well worth it. Our DJ screwed up the timing for the announcement, but there was Rikki on the phone doing everything she could to make it happen.Sent on 08/10/2020
