Historic Ashland can host up to 150 guests but they also offer micro wedding packages for those couples wanting a smaller wedding.
Start your wedding day off at the mansion! This 1906 building has been renovated to provide all of the modern amenities, but it still maintains its rustic charm. You’ll find marble fireplaces, a three-tier staircase, and a gourmet kitchen as well as second-floor bridal suites so that you and your wedding party can prepare for your wedding in style! The cottage is the second building for getting ready, and provides separate quarters for your soon-to-be spouse and a space to gather and prepare as well! The cottage was built in 1806 and it provides a charming and unique space that includes a handmade wooden bar, dart boards, poker set and cards, and a spacious bathroom.
There are a variety of outdoor ceremony locations and one indoor location. You can choose to get married in the lower level of the lodge or between three outdoor locations. The woodsy cedar pergola overlooks a stream and is surrounded by mature trees. The garden cedar pergola is on a brick paver patio surrounded by bistro lighting. The altar overlooking the stream is surrounded by mature trees with the white and stone cottage and mansion in the background.
The lodge is a large two-story building, originally built in 1806, that features 10,000 square feet of unique and beautiful architecture. The inside of the building features tall ceilings, Edison chandeliers, stone fireplaces, and wrought iron railings. You’ll find plenty of space to dance the night away under the exposed beams of the lodge! There are indoor and outdoor locations that are perfect for cocktail hour including a brick patio that features a firepit. You’ll adore the luxurious features of this space for your reception!
You’ll find many available amenities when you book your wedding at Historic Ashland! When you book your wedding at this venue you’ll get private, exclusive access to the property, tables and chairs, ample ceremony locations, and many others. The lush landscaping and grounds will set the perfect backdrop for your wedding day! If you are looking for a wedding venue that offers rustic charm with modern-day elegance, Historic Ashland should be high on your list to check out!
My husband and I were rather picky about our photographer for the wedding because we are photographers ourselves. After doing tons of research and stumbling upon Scott, he was exactly what we were after! His dramatic pictures nailed “the shot” and he managed to get all the little details we spent so much time putting together.
I accept a very limited number of weddings every year to ensure that I can consistently deliver the personalized experience my couples deserve.
I would love to hear more about your story and see if we’re a good fit (as I don’t work with every couple that inquires).
Fill out the contact form and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. No, seriously. Just try me!
