The first thing you’re going to say when you see Ainsworth House is "wow." It’s stately, it’s gorgeous, it’s picturesque, and it’s just perfect for your event. You’re going to say it again when you see the amount of care you will be given. From the beautiful venue and grounds to the services offered, know that you and your guests will be taken care of in style.
Let’s look at the venues. The Ainsworth House itself is available. How can this charming Greek revival style circa 1851 home not be the perfect setting? It has a Bride’s Suite (with a separate door), Groom’s Lounge, and a sitting room for families. Or, consider the Pine Tree Garden. It’s nearly an acre in size and features a 200+-year-old Ponderosa Pine, a gorgeous backdrop for an outdoor wedding. This lone tree has to be a prime reason Ainsworth books so many outdoor events. You can then continue the party on the lawn with musicians or a DJ and photograph your wedding party out on the balcony (swoon!). For a more intimate affair, The Grove might be ideal. Imagine: the bride appears through the tress and makes her way to a wrought-iron gazebo where the wedding party can gather around the couple and hear the vows as they are stated just feet away.
While there are three outdoor wedding venues on site, you can change your mind and switch from your original choice because they are never double booked. They only celebrate one event at a time, so you have the whole place to yourself. All of their focus will be on you, and only you.
You can take advantage of their inclusive wedding package, where they take care of tables, linens, napkins, chairs, tables, event planning and on-the-day coordinator, set up, cleaning, catering, photography, and DJ. Just the venue itself is enough to book. With all of this amazing extra care it’s hard to find a reason not to use Ainsworth if you are in the Portland, Oregon area.
Of course, Ainsworth House and Gardens is meant for more than weddings! Ainsworth House Rooms, like the main parlor, dining room, lounge and rose room are all available, as are the garden room, conference complex, or even the whole complex for those birthdays, baby showers, anniversaries, seasonal parties, and events hosted by non-profits. Ainsworth House even offers space to a few new and/or emerging local non-profit organizations each year to help them “get off the ground” through this hosting opportunity. Now, that’s care all over the place!
They are one of Portland’s foremost full-service wedding and event venues who can offer outdoor as well as indoor facilities and are in “The Knot's” best of weddings Hall of Fame, and have been rated with the “Wedding Wire” for 5 years. They take care of so many details. They can provide your tables, chairs, linens and even event decor. They can provide a horse and carriage, jazz band or a photo booth. They have no in-house service charges, no catering minimums, and no corkage fees. Can it really be this simple to have an elegant affair? If you are planning an event, check out Ainsworth House!
