Dear Laura and Staff at The Ashford Estate,
Our family would like to give all of you a heartfelt thank you for making Liz and Steven’s wedding day so special on June 3rd. We want to express our gratitude to everyone from the cleaning staff, the maintenance crew, the grounds keepers, to the talented culinary team in the kitchen, the servers and attendants and everyone behind the scenes that usually gets no recognition. It is truly a team approach to create such an exquisite experience for the bride & groom, their attendants and all of our dear family and friends who traveled near and far. My husband and I are originally from Allentown, both of our families reside locally. So The Ashford Estate was ‘thee perfect location,’ an enchanting venue right around the rural corner.
Our day began with helpful hands and gracious smiles greeting us on the steps of the Manor House. Polite, professional and always on cue. Escorting us into the beautiful parlor where we enjoyed preparing for the wedding. As the staff was bustling in a relaxed fashion around preparing for our guests setting the tone of work needs to be done, and it will all be done right. Noting all the details my ‘marketing bride’ wanted to include in her day…perfect placement of photos and signs making it welcoming to all.
The venue was beautiful and we were blessed with perfect weather. The photographer and videographer each captured the beauty of Ashford. Paul Kwak, quoted it as ‘This venue that has it all.’ It’s true! The rustic Chapel with the stone fireplace and exposed beams interlaced with nature was the perfect setting for a faith based wedding ceremony. The reason for this celebratory day. Guest strolled the grounds enchanted by the natural essence of the the hidden gardens, the gazebo, the fountains, the tree line drive, to the playful tree swing. The well maintained picturesque blooms giving a pop of color thru out the grounds. The flow of the day was dynamic.
Keeping everyone excited and engaged to see what was coming next…the food was delicious, meticulously prepared with an impressive presentation. From the amazing stations of the cocktail hour to the team approach of serving the entrée. It was collaborative, professional and impressive. We also enjoyed the friendly staff, tapping their feet the beat of the bongos and making it the perfect evening with us. It’s the smiles, the interaction and the body language of all people attending ( whether you are working or as a guest) that help to create the energy and the vibe of an unforgettable experience. So I thank ALL of you for creating a memory of a lifetime for my daughter, Liz and her husband Steven and as our two families became one.
Laura, thank you for fine tuning all the details to make the day go as smoothly as possible. We knew it would day would be amazing, but it exceeded our expectations. Megan and Taylor, thank you for your assistance with ease and grace. It truly was a magical day…. Liz’s smile says it all!
