While we do not do on-site catering, with the great deals we have organized with our Preferred Vendors along with no corkage fees for alcohol, and no minimum catering fees, (the latter being very important for smaller groups,) we promise we will really help couples keep the budget in check, while offering plenty of flexibility.
You’ll find links to our Preferred Caterers here. You can bring your own alcohol, (beer and wine, cocktails through dinner if desired,) and your caterer will provide the bar tender.
We also provide and include an event planner as well as a “day-of” coordinator to work with the couple throughout the process, often an extra charge at other venues. (For even more support, especially for couples who are out of state, see our Concierge Services)
Your main vendor budget, separate from the venue price, would be made up as follows:
Catering: Average range is $25-$55 per person for one to three courses and/or appetizers. See a list of our preferred caterers here.
NOTE: We’d be happy to make further recommendations if none of our preferred caterers work for you, but most couples find their menu choices and price points well matched by more than one of them.
Photographer & Video – If you choose one of our “Preferred” their Ainsworth Special price is ranged $1,100- $1,700 for 5 hours, and also always includes a CD of your pictures (usually around 300) from which you are free to make copies. These prices are a significant saving on regular prices.
We have other photographers too who offer “Ainsworth Special Pricing”, again helping you keep your budget in line while giving you varied choices
DJ – Currently they start around $750 for the whole event, ceremony and reception. Many preferred DJ’s can also offer popular extras, including live piano and other musicians, a great LED light show, and a photo booth. Larger DJ package prices range from $850-$1,500.
If you don’t need a DJ we have a complimentary sound system for background music and dancing, a hand-held radio microphone for speeches and, a Bose system that works with your smart phone or laptop for outdoor ceremony music.
We also have lists of Preferred Bakeries and Florists, as well as referrals for Hotels, Transportation and Officiants.
Me and my wife used Ainsworth House for our wedding and it went great. They were careful with every detail to make sure the day was perfect, and it was. As part of using them, you get a day of wedding planner, which actually becomes much more than that. Laurie was there to offer assistance every step of the way to make sure it worked out great, and it did. The gardens were lovely and…read more→

We really enjoyed the variety of flowers that were…read more→
Magical wedding experience. Our wedding at the Ainsworth house was beautiful and we got so many compliments in the venue. Laurie was our wedding coordinator and she is absolutely amazing.

Our wedding was in March so we ended up getting married indoors and the team at the Ainsworth house made the flip for the reception so smooth. I would recommend the Ainsworth house to…read more→
