urrounded by hundreds of acres of preserved farmland in a secluded region of Monmouth County New Jersey, The Ashford Estate is a well-hidden treasure for brides looking for country estate elegance and sophistication. From a small wooded road over an antique steel bridge, you enter lion guarded iron gates onto a dramatic white crushed stone drive, lined with old growth pines.
The Ashford has been brilliantly designed on over 30 park-like acres of sculpted property, complete with sparkling fountains, waterfalls, a floating gazebo, stone ruins, garden arbors and sprawling views. In addition to the natural beauty of its grounds, The Ashford features immaculately preserved and architecturally astonishing structures, such as the barn chapel, carriage house and the grand ballroom. The Estate offers a monumental conservatory and a majestic solid oak library. Multiple sitting rooms and verandas provide extraordinary spaces between and around these magnificent gathering areas for people to converse during a spectacular cocktail hour. Not to be overlooked are the guest suites that are as elegant and posh as the finest hotels in the world. The photo opportunities are endless.
The Ashford Estate is the newest Weddings of Distinction venue, yet it evokes a sense of European timelessness. This is particularly fitting and undoubtedly comforting to people engaging in a journey they hope will last forever.
