Opened in 2006, The Ashley Castle in Chandler has become one of the Valley’s best-loved wedding and event venues, having hosted all kinds of gatherings, including weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, anniversary celebrations and more.
“We’re all family here, which is special,” says the castle’s namesake, Ashlee Guerrero, who works in the office and the catering department. “My parents own the castle, my uncle owns the bartending company, my mom is running the floral division right now, one of our coordinators has been with us several years and goes to church with my parents, and our setup team member has been with us since the very beginning. We’re all just one big happy family.”
The Ashley Castle, which is hidden down a long driveway in one of Chandler’s business districts not far from Chandler Fashion Center, looks like an authentic castle, with its design centered around its one-of-a-kind, 200-year-old doors that are believed to have come from a castle in Asia.
“It’s very much designed to look like a Medieval castle,” Guerrero says. “We have tapestries on the walls, the whole outside is stone, we have three turrets inside, and hand-painted walls. Outside we have a beautiful garden, a gazebo and statues. It feels like you’re walking around in Europe.”
The castle sets itself apart with all-inclusive packages that cover everything from catering to bar service to florals and rentals, making it easy to plan an unforgettable event. For weddings, there are seven different package options to suit every couple—whether they want relaxed, brunch-time nuptials, or an all-out evening soiree.
For other varieties of events, The Ashley Castle offers a prom package and corporate event package for easy planning.
“It takes the stress out planning your day,” says Guerrero. “We have an in-house catering team and florist. The only think people need to bring in themselves are the photographer, alcohol and officiant, and we even have preferred photographers and officiants, in case they need recommendations.”
In addition to being a fantastic event venue, The Ashley Castle’s picturesque grounds and interior are also available for photoshoots.
The venue has become increasingly busy, now even booking weddings into 2025.
“As one of the aftereffects of the pandemic, I think people are realizing not to wait on things. They’re following their passions and getting married when they want to get married, instead of putting it off. Because we never know what’s going to happen in this world,” says Guerrero.
The Ashley Castle has several nearby hotels within walking distance, making it a convenient location for the wedding party and guests. Nearby hotels include Courtyard by Marriott Phoenix Chandler, Marriott Phoenix Chandler, Hampton Inn & Suites Phoenix Chandler-Fashion Center, Homewood Suites by Hilton Phoenix Chandler Fashion Center, Drury Inn & Suites Phoenix Chandler Fashion Center, Home2 Suites by Hilton Phoenix Chandler, and Residence Inn by Marriott Phoenix Chandler/South.
