Wedding Sites at
Ainsworth House & Gardens

Ainsworth House & Gardens is the premier Oregon City wedding venue. With our beautiful and serene setting, there is no better place to celebrate your special day. While we only ever celebrate one event at a time, there are three distinct outdoor wedding sites for your celebration at the Ainsworth House & Gardens, as well as an indoor option available throughout the year.

A portion of The Ainsworth House itself is available before the ceremony for the exclusive use of the wedding party, complete with a Bride’s Suite (with separate door) and a Groom’s Lounge on the ground floor for easy access. Also, once you’ve booked the day, you can change your mind on which site to use as often as you like. For the perfect wedding venue in Oregon City, there is no better choice than Ainsworth House & Gardens.

The Pine Tree Garden

Nearly an acre in size, The Pine Tree Garden surrounds a nearly 200 year-old Ponderosa Pine which towers over the grounds, stretching its branches to cover your wedding party with its ancient blessing. After the ceremony, cocktails and appetizers are usually served on the lawn, while music provides further ambiance. During this time, the wedding party can retreat for private or group photos near the House or in the Grove. You will then continue the festivities in our Reception Facility.

Indoor wedding ceremonies at the Ainsworth House & Garden are performed in The Fireside Room. After the ceremony, the full group picture can be taken outside from the balcony, (weather permitting,) and then cocktails and appetizers can be served in the Conservatory. During this time, the wedding party can retreat for private or group photos near the House or in the Grove while the House and catering staff will reset the Garden and Fireside Rooms for dinner.

The Front Lawn

The Main House makes a marvelously romantic backdrop for your ceremony, which will be celebrated on the main steps. You can arrive by horse-drawn carriage and walk along the historic brick walkway set between your seated guests, all the way to the House. Your reception dinner and dancing will be hosted in the Reception Facility, with appetizers and cocktails served on the side lawn. The Front Lawn has been a dream setting for many of our former guests.

The Grove

A wedding in The Grove is an intimate choice, best suited for smaller groups. It’s just a short walk from the Bride’s Room through a spinney of slender trees to a wrought-iron gazebo draped in lights and flowers. It’s a truly a magical setting! Your guests can gather closely around you and, under the gentle dappled light, hear your vows up close and personal.
