    The BEST venue there is!

    One of the best choices we made for our May 2022 wedding was choosing Royal Ashburn Golf Club as our venue! We hosted a Sunday Brunch style wedding with a morning ceremony, followed by a cocktail hour, and then a buffet style brunch. Our guests cannot stop talking about the incredible experience they had a Royal Ashburn, and we feel the exact same way! The grounds are absolutely stunning and the views from the 2nd floor Compton Room are unmatched. From both the covered and uncovered patios/terraces, the glass solarium, and the indoor reception space, our guests utilized and enjoyed every part of the Compton Room. The food is the absolute best and we're so happy that our guests from vegan, gluten free, to those non-restricted all had plentiful options to choose from. We're talking Eggs Benedict, waffles, traditional breakfast foods, fresh fruit, pastries, and lunch items, the food was so delicious! The service is also unmatched - every individual you meet is friendly, helpful, and goes above and beyond to ensure you're having a memorable experience. From day one, Lindsey, our Wedding and Events Manager was attentive to every detail and every email sent her way. Lindsey supported us throughout the entire planning process including helping us plan our rehearsal and rehearsal lunch! She helped us to make informed decisions, provided us options, and most impactfully, was the day-of-coordinator ensuring everything was on time, organized, and as we had envisioned. We cannot thank Lindsay enough for her hard work, professionalism, expertise, and passion! With Royal Ashburn, you cannot go wrong in choosing them as your venue. Our wedding day was a dream, and much of that is owed to their dedicated and passionate staff. We would confidently recommend Royal Ashburn to anyone, and we hope to work with them again for future events.

    Thank you so much for your incredible review.
    It was an amazing experience getting to help plan your big day with you!
    Congratulations!

    Incredible Experience from Planning to Special Day

    We quickly chose the Royal Ashburn for our special day after our first tour and meeting the fantastic staff. The ground were beautiful, from the outdoor garden for our ceremony, to the unique reception space filled with intricate details. We chose the Ashburn room, which we highly recommend, as there's a lovely fireplace room for a cocktail hour/late night snack station and is a great backup to an outdoor ceremony. We chose the venue in 2021, and it was clear that the Royal Ashburn has been extremely accommodating to weddings impacted by Covid, and that made us feel really comfortable. Our wedding planner, Lindsey, was fantastic and replied to all our inquiries quickly and helped us plan every second of the day. The menu tasting was so fun, we were able to mingle with all the coupled getting married this summer and try all the food options through a buffet-style dinner. The food itself on wedding day was delicious, and we received a ton of complements from our guests. The prime rib is a must!

    The wedding day itself was more than what we could have asked for. Lindsey and the rest of the staff were so kind and accommodating, guiding us through the whole day and it went off without a hitch. There was a power outage that day and the venue was running on generators, but you wouldn't have even noticed. During cocktail hour, the staff brought hors d'oeuvres and champagne out to us and our wedding party as we were taking photos. The wait staff and bartenders were so pleasant to work with, and did a great job. The venue itself was incredibly beautiful, and we couldn't have picked a better location for our wedding.

    All Inclusive Packages, Kind Staff, Pandemic Flexibility

    We fell in love with the Royal Ashburn as soon as we set foot on the premises. The grounds are beautiful, the staff was kind and professional, and the all inclusive packages presented the best bang for our buck. Cue the pandemic. With all of the uncertainty and new regulations, we had to move our date twice. The Royal Ashburn was accommodating and allowed us to do so at no extra charge. They provide assistance all throughout the planning process, menu tasting, vendor open houses, fireworks, and day-of coordinators on site to help make sure everything runs smoothly. We were so happy to have had our wedding at the Royal Ashburn. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

    The Royal Ashburn Wedding's reply:

    Hi Vika,

    Thank you for such a great review! You both were so amazing to work with and I'm happy the weather didn't spoil your beautiful day. I hope you two are enjoying married life, and congratulations again!

    Amazing Garden Wedding

    Rikki and the rest of the staff was amazing. Always answering emails within 24hours. And on the day of they did everything we asked of them and more. Including helping me fold take out containers for cupcakes and making a whole extra pot of coffee after service had ended because 1 guest asked for it. They made my wife's day perfect. The food was great. and its so beautiful

    Rikki made covid wedding planning much easier

    Trying to plan a wedding through a pandemic is very stressful but Rikki was on top of everything whenever restrictions changed and our plans had to change. She was quick to respond to our questions and worked so well with our vendors so we could focus on ourselves. The venue itself is gorgeous and the cedar gardens ceremony space was what we dreamed of. Our dinner was excellent as well as the food during cocktail hour and our late night buffet.

    The Royal Ashburn Wedding's reply:

    Hello Derek and Hilary,

    The best venue!

    We had the most beautiful wedding at Royal Ashburn. After postponing three times, we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Rikki was amazing to work with and was so helpful with the postponements and answering our many questions as the regulations kept changing. We loved the outdoor tent space, and the grounds were beautiful. The food was incredible, and all of our guests were so happy with the quality and proportions of the meals. The bartenders were a blast! We all had so much fun with them. We can’t thank you all enough for how wonderful you made this experience even with the hiccups of the pandemic.

    The Royal Ashburn Wedding's reply:

    Hi Courtney and Aaron,

    Thank you both so much for your thoughtful review - we truly appreciate it! I'm so happy we could finally celebrate with your family despite the restrictions, and we were able to get you married.

    Congratulations once again from everyone at Royal Ashburn!

    Highly recommend the Royal Ashburn

    My experience with the Royal Ashburn was incredible, and I would highly recommend considering this venue during these uncertain times. My husband and I were supposed to get married in the summer of 2020, but decided to postpone due to the pandemic. The Royal Ashburn, specifically Rikki, went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I were able to have the wedding we had hoped for and were very accommodating in moving our date and providing us alternate options during the pandemic.

    The Royal Ashburn Wedding's reply:

    Helo Leslie and Ali,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this amazing review - we truly appreciate! I am so happy we could celebrate your love with family and friends and host your beautiful day!

    We wish you all the best in this next chapter of life!
