Jordan and Bill

Classic Elegance

Venue: The Ashford Estate

There aren’t too many wedding estates in New Jersey that offer the versatility and luxury feel of The Ashford Estate. When I first connected with Jordan, I had already spent time on the phone with her mom. We talked about her daughter’s style and how she would be looking at upscale wedding venues in New Jersey.

Once I connected with Jordan a few weeks later, I knew exactly what she envisioned, even when she wasn’t quite sure. Since finding the wedding venue is first on every wedding planning checklist, that’s where we began.

Typically, my couples will select a venue from my recommendations before I can give them more than 3 places. That said, I will recommend however many wedding venues it takes in order to find the perfect one because it lays the foundation for the rest of the wedding day!

Even though I knew Ashford was the perfect choice for Jordan and Bill, I gave them a slew of other options to tour. I purposely sent them to Ashford second because I was confident they wouldn’t book if they went there first…and I also figured they would fall in love once they got there and call me to cancel all of their other venue tour appointments.

Which is exactly what happened!

Once the venue was selected and I canceled the other 497 appointments I had set up, we moved on to the rest of the details. With a 2 year long engagement, we were able to take our time with vendor selection and design.

The total opposite of rustic and boho, this bride was after sophisticated wedding dresses only. Her selection? A stunning full ballgown with gorgeous sparkly details that made for the best wedding pictures! The groom and his groomsmen all wore formal black tuxedos and the bridesmaids were dressed in floor length soft gray gowns.

Our couple wanted to wow their guests with a luxury wedding reception inside Ashford’s breathtaking ballroom. We filled the room with all white flowers and endless candles. Tying the whole look together were touches of gray that could be seen all the way back to the luxury wedding invitations.

The epitome of classic elegance, Jordan and Bill’s luxury wedding details were incredibly special. If you’re thinking about getting married at The Ashford Estate, let us know how we can help by connecting with us here.
