Our wedding was fantastic. Ashley Manor provided a location that was exactly what we were looking for. The weather was great, though be prepared for a random 100 degree day still in October in Arizona.
Jeff and Rena with Colling Photography have been wonderful! They were absolute professionals, worked well with both small children and our dogs and were extremely prompt with services. Most importantly, our wedding pictures are absolutely gorgeous!
If you are looking for a FREE honeymoon registry this is the way to go. Basically, they provide you with free web space and never take any money in their hands. Your guests pick out a gift and print a certificate on their home computer. Then they include the certificate with a check or cash in a card to you to send or to give to you on your wedding day. The best part-none of the gift your guests give goes to someone else.
Ashley Manor provided a wonderfully, intimate setting. We were able to bring in our own cake and alcohol which saved money. I would recommend booking early if you are getting married during a prime season such as we did in October. We loved the setting and the staff was very friendly. Some things to consider-1) the space is on the pricier side, but no need to buy extra decorations since it's so beautiful and photographs nicely, 2) the staff is willing to work with budgets you give them, such as for handheld flowers, 3) you have to be on top of the staff with regard to tastings, centerpiece meetings, etc and remind them of when you need them done and 4) the preferred DJ (Jeff Nelson) played exactly the music we requested without going against any of our wishes.
A great choice close to Ashley Manor. If you are booking this wedding, please consider asking for rates way in advance-especially during their prime season.
Economical choice for our guests and very clean. At the time of our wedding, there were no hotels near Ashley Manor that weren't suites. I believe this has now changed. For us, this was a great choice for guests without being in a not-so-great neighborhood. Places to eat within walking distance.
