Hey, Laura!

Thank you for asking!

At Ainsworth House & Gardens Wedding Event Center, we take sustainability seriously.

Here, you can marry outside in nature!

With abundant natural lighting—called sunshine—you’ll save on energy usage. The sunshine will create beautiful wedding photos for you!

Our beautiful gardens are meticulously maintained so you are surrounded by flowers. This offers you sustainable, eco-friendly flowers—and saves you money!

We are an eco-friendly venue for sustainable weddings like yours. In fact, being a cadre of highly trained overachievers, we have three outdoor venues where you can get married.

The Ponderosa Pine Garden: Get married under the sweeping, majestic branches of our Ponderosa Pine, which is nearly 200 years old.

It feels as though our tree with its stately branches is reaching out to include you, shelter you, bless you on your special day.

By getting married here, you can start your family tree under our family’s tree!

The Front Lawn: In front of a mansion built before Oregon became a state, you can get married on our expansive front lawn. Our main house with its stately, two story columns is a marvelously romantic backdrop for your ceremony which you can celebrate on the mansion’s main steps. You can arrive by horse-drawn carriage and then walk up the white or petal-strewn carpet all the way up to the main house. This front lawn area is the setting for many dreamy weddings! Will you be next?

The Grove: Our Grove beckons you when you need a cozy, intimate choice for your small wedding.

A wrought iron gazebo draped in your choice of lights or flowers is nestled in our forest glade.

On your special day, your aspirations soar upward for a more wonderful life with your beloved. 

So too do the slender black locust trees reach high into the sky, aspire ever upward. 

This is a truly enchanting place to marry your beloved!

Under the gentle, dappled light, your guests will gather around you to hear your vows and witness your enduring love!
