Celebration of Life Venue Near Portland

Regardless of the day or season, we offer a flat rate of $225 an hour, to include all the tables and chairs you’ll need, an altar or other frontal, lectern, help with setting up food, and use of our coffee and hot water urns.  Also available are our AV and sound systems.

You can even hold the ceremony outside (weather permitting) and then move inside for the refreshments.

Many people have delighted in the garden view from our Conservatory as well as the wonderful light through it’s many windows and skylights.  This can be an appropriately calm and yet positive environment for such an often sad occasion, when there is enough darkness without having to gather in a room or chapel without natural light.

Rev. Kevin Yell, managing partner of Ainsworth House & Gardens, was a hospice chaplain for 5 years and so knows the needs and pressures on families when they are planning a Funeral, Memorial or Celebration of Life.   For this reason we never refuse to host such an event if we possibly can.

This, and our commitment to community organizations, is what makes Ainsworth House special – and a very active part of the local, living community.

We truly could not be more satisfied with the service we received or the beauty of the space. From the very beginning, Kevin greeted us with enthusiasm and gave us a thorough tour of the gorgeous house and gardens. Kevin, Nancy, and Renee all responded to our emails promptly as we planned our big day. Not only is the venue competitively priced, but many items were included in the price of the venue that we…read more

We were married here this past Saturday (7/2017).  From the moment we met Kevin 15 months ago until our day, absolute perfection!  Nancy is so incredible to work with!  The gardens are breathtaking!  We cannot rave enough or say thank you enough! See this Review on Yelp

My wife and I had our wedding and reception here in June this year (can't believe we're just now writing the rave review!) Krystle and Reverend Kevin ("Rev Kev") were exceptional to work with. Not only are the grounds beautiful, and surprisingly private for being in a residential area, but the staff goes above and beyond to make sure the event goes off without a hitch... well, I guess there was one "hitch" during the…read more

We had our daughter’s wedding at the Ainsworth House & Gardens on June 29, 2013. It was an outdoor wedding on a beautiful sunny day and we could not be more pleased with how well everything turned out. Along with this being an absolutely lovely setting for an outdoor wedding with the beautiful old house (built in the 1850’s) and the surrounding flowering gardens, grounds and facilities, Nancy and Kevin are the absolute best. Nancy…read more
