Held our wedding ceremony at the Ainsworth House and Gardens last week. It was a fabulous venue for both the outside wedding ceremony and the after dinner and dancing. Nancy Shaw was our wedding planner and she was wonderful at keeping us on track without being pushy or too intense. As the night progressed, the different events seemed to flow natually and beautifully. Our guests all said it was a very classy wedding. We held the ceremonly in the outside garden under the old tree. You definitely should get a microphone sound system as we did since the wind would have made it hard to hear. We had 103 guests which was about perfect. The venue can sit 117 but that would have felt crowded since we also had a live band. Also, we held our ceremonly at 4:30 on a friday night which made traffic a nightmare for some of the guests. Also, if you are planning to invite a lot of small children, you might want to find another venue. We changed it to an adult only event followed by a family picnic the next day at Peninsula Park.

I married the love of my life 7/26/2014 at 4pm underneath the beautiful pine tree. Every step taken throughout my wedding planning and organizing was a smooth process thanks to Nancy Shaw the site event coordinator. She was very responsive with every (and there were alot!) email I sent with changes, questions and concerns. She was always reassuring that everything was going to be perfect, which the morning of was everything but! Everything that went wrong had nothing to do with Ainsworth House but as soon as we pulled up to AHG at 3pm all the stress left my body and everything was set up just as I envisioned it with the help and direction of Nancy and her assistant. As for our ceremony, we wanted something that had a bit of tradition mixed with non-tradition and Kevin Yell (owner of AHG) NAILED IT! Our previous meeting with him got us excited, the rehearsal got us stoked but the ceremony had us both floating on clouds. I've already recommended our venue, vendors and Kevin to may people I've talked to these past 10 days of marriage. 75% of the wedding guests came up from San Francisco, CA and they've had nothing but amazing things to say about our wedding. If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change one single thing!

The Ainsworth House & Gardens was the PERFECT place for our wedding!! All of the staff members were amazing every step of the way!! Amy was amazing and made our special day perfect! The grounds are immaculate and the buildings are very well maintained. The tables, linens, center pieces, and staff were perfect! The outdoor area was actually comfortable on one of the hottest days of the year, and all of our guests were very pleased. There is plenty of parking for guests and caterers, and they even provided us with great options for photography, catering, music, etc! I would highly recommend this venue and staff! They're great!!

The Ainsworth House and Gardens is THE most AMAZING venue! Kevin, Nancy, and Renee were fabulous to work with. Kevin was our officiant and he did a fabulous job! Everyone enjoyed our ceremony and we had many compliments about how beautiful the grounds were. Many of our guests were from out-of-state and truly enjoyed every inch of the grounds.

I would HIGHLY recommend the Ainsworth House and Gardens. Our wedding went to smoothly and couldn't ask for anything more from them!!

I can hardly express how impressed I am with Ainsworth House & Gardens. Not only are the grounds GORGEOUS, but both Nancy and Kevin are amazing. Kevin officiated our ceremony and did a beautiful job, bringing both my husband and I to tears. And Nancy, well, I don't know what I would have done without her. She responded quickly to all of my crazy bride emails and she ran the show smoothly and flawlessly on the wedding day. For any brides looking for a beautiful, easy, worry-free venue experience I'd say choose Ainsworth House.

Our daughter lives in Portland, OR. We live in KS. When she and her fiance announced their engagement in late July 2013 with a December 14, 2013 wedding date in Oregon, the search was on. As we reviewed the many wedding venues in the Portland area, Ainsworth House kept rising to the top. Within days I made a phone call. Renee helped get the process started. My daughter and her fiance toured the venue's facilities a few weeks later and were very impressed. As an out of state mother of the bride, I can only give high praise for the 1850's house, the wedding/reception venue, the gorgeous grounds, the wonderful staff, and the great services provided to us.The photos and the information on the website were amazing - but visiting in person 2 1/2 months before the wedding proved that the real thing was even better. The facilities and grounds are wonderful. We worked with several vendors referred by Ainsworth House. They all worked together and the day progressed smoothly. Best of all was having Nancy act as coordinator. She is organized and pays attention to detail. She works well with everyone and manages everything effortlessly. Thank you for a beautiful wedding day! You made planning a wedding from halfway across the country a breeze.

My wife and I celebrated my youngest daughters wedding on October 26 and it was absolutely wonderful. She could have not picked a better venue. She searched all over Oregon and for the most part most venues were so expensive or snobby she could not have seen her wedding anywhere else but the Ainsworth House in Oregon City. My daughter planned the wedding long distance and they were very flexible and understanding. The professional and classy staff and Kevin was the best. He knew just how to perform a wedding. Nancy stayed on top of everything and respected not only the bride and groom but the family as well. I would recommend this place to anyone and rate it 10 plus.

Ainsworth House and Gardens was a beautiful place to get married. What I found was the services they provided was by far a great deal for the money we spent. All of the staff were prompt at responses, professional, and fun to work with. I used Catering by Laurie off of their list of vendors and was very happy with all of the food, presentation, and service staff. We also chose to use River rock studios as our photographer who also came highly recommended by the staff. I would recommend any new bride to be to look at the Ainsworth House as a venue to host their wedding and consider their vendors who have proven themselves to be of good value, professional, and quality services.

My husband and I got married at the Ainsworth House and Gardens on October 5th 2013. From the moment we walked onto the grounds of Ainsworth House and Gardens we felt at home. The setting at the Ainsworth House was BREATH TAKING! Everywhere you looked you could see the care, love, and attention that this beautiful venue receives from the proprietor Kevin and all the wonderful staff. We first met with Kevin during our tour; he spent well over an hour with us showing us around, answering all our questions, and making us feel at ease. Both my husband and I knew almost immediately that this was the place we wanted to get married. Everything that the Ainsworth House and Garden are told us during our tour they followed through with we got exactly what we expected if not much more! The Ainsworth House and Gardens has a wonderful outline that they use to make sure that all the important details of a wedding day are not forgotten. Everybody that we worked with at the Ainsworth House and Gardens were friendly, kind, and seemed genuinely interested in helping us with what can be an overwhelming process. Nancy, the coordinator at Ainsworth House, was prompt in responding to questions or concerns that we might have. We choose to get married under the giant pine tree that is on their property at sunset and had Kevin preform the ceremony. I have had multiple guests tell me that it was “the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended.” I would highly recommend the Ainsworth House and Gardens to anybody.

The Ainsworth House was absolutely an amazing place to our wedding and reception. Not only is the venue stunning but the staff are all amazing and everyone of their recommended vendors were not only affordable but professional and fun to work with.

I am so glad that we chose to have our wedding at the Ainsworth House & Gardens. Nancy and Kevin did a wonderful job. I have to say that I am honestly surprised by how smoothly everything went. The only downside was the pouring rain but even with that Nancy and Kevin were able to quickly convert the wedding from being out to be indoor instead. Both Nancy and Kevin were very responsive and are very sweet and caring people!
P.S. We used Kevin as our officiant because my husband is also English so we thought it would be nice to bring a little of his culture to our wedding and Kevin did a fabulous job. He was funny and made that time very memorable.

I just got married here on July 28th, 2013, and I couldn't possibly be happier! The venue is gorgeous and has on-site ceremony and reception facilities (which are ADA compliant and was important to me as mom needs a mobility scooter). The old house is beautiful on the inside and out and has dedicated space in it for the groom and bride to prepare that is not only functional but beautiful in photographs. They have their own list of "preferred vendors" but there is no punishment or extra cost for choosing a vendor not on their list. However their list of preferred vendors is fantastic and the people I choose were amazing, high quality, and affordable so please check them out even if you don't get married here! Nancy and Kevin are an absolute delight and are incredibly helpful! Kevin did an amazing job with our ceremony trying to help us create an interfaith ceremony. My guests are still raving about the wonderful, funny, professional, and beautiful job he did as our officiant. Nancy was there to help with every step of the way and did it with grace and professionalism. She helped me plan, was easy to contact for advice or assistance, had honest reviews of vendors, and helped out on the wedding day to coordinate everything. Oh and she did it all with a smile... how she does this after encountering multiple stressed brides is a mystery but she maintains a pleasant, calm, and professional demeanor that made an otherwise stressful planning event feel like it was nothing we couldn't handle together. I didn't have a single problem with this venue in either the planning or day of services. Actually they exceeded my expectations and I am truly impressed with the staff and location. After getting married here, I can't imagine going anywhere else for a wedding because the venue is gorgeous and most importantly the staff care about YOU and work hard to make sure your wedding is exactly what you hope it will be and 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 helped us all along the way with all the planning and organization details and was on top of everything on the big day. She did an excellent job keeping everything on schedule and kept us all on track too, when needed. Kevin was so much fun and performed a wonderful ceremony. The quality of the various preferred vendors they recommended for the food, flowers, cake, photography, music, etc were all quality professionals that they regularly use and were excellent. This saved us a ton of time and greatly reduced our risk exposure to potentially problematic people dropping the ball and causing wedding day disasters (but you can use your own people or do it all yourself if you want).

The day was a busy one but the ceremony and all associated reception activities went off smoothly without a hitch. The wedding was beautiful, everyone had a great time and we all walked away with some wonderful memories captured on film and video that we’ll cherish forever. Thank you so much Nancy and Kevin. You are the best!!

Words cannot describe how wonderful this place is! I had my dream wedding there June 23, 2013. It was a rainy day most of the day until right before my ceremony started and they were able to hurry and have it outside like I really wanted to. It is a beautiful place to have a wedding and the staff is equally amazing and helpful.

We had our March 2, 2013 wedding at Ainsworth House & Gardens and I cannot say enough good things about both the venue itself and Nancy, the event manager. Nancy walked us through the entire process, ensuring that nothing was forgotten. The venue and reception space turned out beautifully and I cannot wait to see the photos that were taken on the grounds. Our ceremony and reception were held indoors, but I know an outdoor wedding at this venue would be amazing as well!

I can't say enough about the Ainsworth House & Gardens. Kevin and Nancy helped my husband and I create and experience one of the best days of our lives! Our wedding was intimate, warm, loving, joyous, and carefree. Many of our friends and family said that it was the best wedding that they had been to in years. The staff was responsive, accommodating, kind, thoughtful, warm, and genuine. Nancy helped us plan our day and made sure everything happened like a finely tuned orchestra. I didn't have to do anything except enjoy being a bride. It was a blessing to work with people that we could trust completely. While Kevin is a co-owner of the Ainsworth House & Gardens, he was also our amazing officiant. He helped us create and then performed a beautiful ceremony that was personal to us and that our friends and family loved. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue, and the wonderful people that work there, to any couple. If you choose the Ainsworth House & Gardens, you will be in good hands and have a memorable wedding.

We had a New Years Day wedding and reception at Ainsworth House and it was a fantastic experience! Kevin and Nancy met with us several times prior to the wedding and saw to it that all the details were well organized in advance, then took care to see to it that everything flowed on the actual day. We didn’t have to worry about anything! Everything was set up, moved around, and taken down/cleaned up behind the scenes with no involvement from us at all. Additionally, we were given a list of trusted vendors who all work together on a regular basis and who did so seamlessly!
The ceremony itself was officiated by Kevin, who did a phenomenal job of giving us options and helping us to blend our different religious backgrounds into a remarkably integrated and spiritual experience, one which we were both very happy with. Moreover, he did an excellent job of guiding me through the parts of the ceremony where I had to actually say something in front of a bunch of people, not an insignificant issue for me. We had many comments about what an inclusive and humorous officiant we had!
With regard to the surroundings, the house and gardens are gorgeous, summer or winter, and the reception area was beautifully decorated. Our guests told us that it was one of the most beautiful and fun weddings they had ever been to! Highly recommend this venue!

Words cannot express how perfect the Ainsworth House facilities and staff are for putting on the perfect wedding. My newly minted husband and I had our ceremony and reception at the Ainsworth House at the end of August, 2012 and it was absolutely wonderful.

We initially picked the Ainsworth house as venue because it housed the right about of guests and was very affordable for the amenities it offered, plus we loved the grounds. We booked the place a year and half before our ceremony, which I suggest as it does book up fast. Also, as we booked so far in advance, we were able to take advantage of a deal offered to early bookers like us that enabled us to get even more bang for our buck, and who doesn't want that?

The staff at Ainsworth house is amazing. During our initial tours of the facilities, Kevin totally sold us on the place with his knowledge of the history of the house as well as his clear investment in making sure the grounds were kept beautiful and every wedding was treated special. Nancy was especially helpful in hammering out all the little details (which 15 days before your ceremony suddenly amount to a huge pile of stuff you hadn't planned on worrying about) as well as being available and flexible the days prior to and the day of the event. Nancy saved the day for us especially when the florist we initially planned on using fell through a month before the wedding (yikes) by recommending another local florist who ended up to be a thousand times better than the original florist. Go Nancy!

All in all, our ceremony and reception were perfect; everything ran smoothly due to the professionalism of the staff. Our guests consistently told us during and after the wedding that they had never been to a more beautiful wedding venue, indoors and out. The amount of services you get for the price is unbeatable. Basically, this place is perfect and you should book it immediately!!

This venue is beyond gorgeous (just go look! You'll fall in love, I promise!) while being very comfortable at the same time. It feels like a professional version of getting married in a family member's backyard. Kevin and Bud are so very kind and we were thrilled to have them be such a crucial part of planning and executing our very special day. The little details are what I'll never forget - Kevin offering me a tissue just as I was to walk down the aisle; and Bud walking by, noticing I was alone at a crucial moment, helping me down the steps and carrying my train across the grass for me. The flexibility that was offered to us was beyond what any other venue could offer. It truly was OUR special day, just the way we wanted it. My only wish was for another hour or two before we had to leave!

We had been looking for a place for sometime when we met with Kevin (the owner). The grounds were beautiful, you weren't forced to use their catering services, and everything was included! Honestly, when it came down to it....we picked the Ainsworth House for a lot of reasons because of Kevin. He was so kind and made you feel at home. And when we had a last minute scare because our best friend couldn't marry us, Kevin (being a Reverend) was more than glad to perform the ceremony for us.

It's so affordable and has so much to offer! They went above and beyond for us!

We met Kevin while looking at his property as a venue. We found a different venue, but had fallen in love with Kevin's personality and professionalism. Yes, marriage is serious business, but says you can't have a few chuckles at your ceremony?

We weren't wanting a very religious ceremony (he will if you like) - actully no religion for us would be best! He helped us make it personal and spritual. Gave us several vows to pick from, prayers to pick from (we chose Apache Indian prayer), ring blessings, and readings. He helped us with having our guests participate in our ceremony with a ring blessing. Without making it corny, he made it personal and interactive with all of our guests.

We received many compliments from our guests on the ceremony and what was said.

We are very glad that Kevin will always be part of our lives from this day forward...

It was a blessing to have Kevin Yell marry us. We met him through his wedding venue at Ainsworth House and immediately knew it was meant to be. He met with Matt and I on multiple occasions to discuss wedding plans, life, and a myriad of other conversational details. Kevin had a wonderful vision of how we wanted our ceremony and gave us many great ideas for twists on traditions. He really made the ceremony memorable for us and (from the comments our guests left) it was just as memorable for them as well. We can't thank him enough for making our wedding ceremony so wonderful.

We got married at Ainsworth House & Gardens last month and we had such a wonderful experience! Nancy was a wonderful coordinator and was always quick to respond to my many questions during the planning process. She was also very helpful in providing advice and suggestions on what worked best. We were very concerned about the weather the day of, but the staff knew exactly how to prepare for inclement weather and were very on top of it (we ended up lucking out and had blue skies). Ainsworth House was very flexible and accommodating with us. The staff seemed to genuinely care about making our wedding a success. Kevin was wonderful to work with as well... he even held my hand and escorted me to the ceremony space, which was such a nice personal touch. I have zero complaints. The only slight difficulty we had was understanding the package--it was a little confusing to understand what was included at first (specifically the catering credit piece), but that was soon clarified. Still a very good value! Thank you Ainsworth for giving us such a beautiful wedding!

I could not have asked for a better venue, They were so helpful and willing to do everything they could to make my wedding the best it could be. Kevin is one of the owners and was the officiant and he is amazing at his job, he truly wants you to be happy with the life choice you are making and is willing to discuss any aspect of marriage.

Kevin is one of the owners and was the officiant and he is amazing at his job, he truly wants you to be happy with the life choice you are making and is willing to discuss any aspect of marriage.

I will iterate what others have said: I picked this venue largely in part for Reverend Kevin. We had him officiate the ceremony and between his eye for detail and sense of humor as well as Nancy's aid the day of, the whole event went without a hitch. I appreciated their suggestions for other vendors (processional music, photographer & caterer) as well. The venue is beautiful in the summer (not as much during the winter) though it is a long distance from Portland proper so being able to work via e-mail and phone calls was pretty critical for me. I would not have survived without my own wedding planner as well but some of that is due to recent changes in personnel. thank you so much for the beautiful day!

My wife and I were very pleased with our wedding at the Ainsworth House and Gardens. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and made for not only wonderful memories but also wonderful wedding photos. It was great working with Nancy and Kevin. Their assistance helped relieve the wedding planning pressures my wife was experiencing. Nancy helped us work within our budget and our guests had wonderful things to say about our wedding. Kevin and Nancy both made our wedding day run smoothly. Thank you!

We had an absolutely amazing wedding thanks to the Ainsworth House (and our other wonderful vendors, of course). The grounds and reception area are gorgeous, the people who work there are wonderful, and they're willing to go above and beyond to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch. For anyone looking for a ceremony and reception venue in the Portland, Oregon area, I would highly recommend that you check out the Ainsworth House. It was a great value for the money and they made our special day truly amazing.

I didn't get the center piece candles on table which we talk about earlier, just small things. But Kevin he is really nice to work with. This place is gorgeous to hold a wedding. We have very good time there.

Absolutely beautiful venue! Majority of guests were out of state and had nothing but wonderful things to say about the grounds. Our photos sent by friends are breathtaking!
Kevin was our officiant and the owner and he was just amazing. Everyone commented on our ceremony and how it felt like he knew us! This place is so affordable and they have one of the best photo opportunities ever even the photographer goes to the top of the manor and gets a photo of the whole wedding party. Truly wonderful place for an intimate wedding. The venue has all the linens, centerpieces, and makes things easier for the bride!
Thank you Ainsworth for a beautiful day!!

Our son decided to get married during his once a year trip home from Taiwan and I was given 6 months to put it all together while living out of state and in the process of relocating back to Portland. Working with Kevin and the Ainsworth House was incredible! Not only is the venue all inclusive, their preferred vendors great to work with, Kevin's and his staff were so helpful - his ideas were perfect!! After one visit on site with them, the plans were pretty much all taken care of. I arrived a month before and basically spent a couple of weeks finalizing everything with no surprises. On the day of the wedding, everything was perfect, there was an issue with the cake but they were immediately on it. All our guests and family commented on how great everything was and that it was one of the funnest weddings they have attended. The only negative was that Kevin couldn't perform the wedding as he already had another one booked.

The Ainsworth House & Gardens is a beautiful place to hold an event. When my husband and I drove up to the site for the first time, we were not sure if it would suit our needs since it is in the middle of an neighborhood. We wanted a county feel to our wedding and the Ainsworth House was just that. After walking around the site, we knew it was the place for us. It was quite and with enough space for our wedding (85 guests). We like that the site offered both indoor and outdoor options for both the service and the receiption. The natural setting provided a fabulous backdrop to as much or as little additional decorations we felt we needed. The staff provided us many great suggestions to make our day just what we wanted. I was able to visit the site many times with family and vendors to iron out all the planning details.

I loved the owners of the facility and the atmosphere and we loved the garden, tho I had a not so great experience with their wedding planner. I had many communication issues with her and was not happy that I had to initiate most of our meetings. Some things were not done the way we had discussed. I don't want to get into a lot of details, but I had a great wedding and loved the venue....

It was a beautiful venue! Kevin and Renee were great to work with. It would be best to have your wedding pre-planned out, however. Liberty Events was not too easy to get ahold of. However, it's a helpful tool that came with AHG.

Ainsworth is beautiful, and overall, I was supremely happy with them. At the last minute, they argued the price with us and charged us more than we'd signed the contract for, but other than that, everything was wonderful. Gorgeous location, helpful people, friendly atmosphere. They even threw in the chair covers for free!

Ainsworth House is an amazing venue. Gardens are immaculate, reception venue was just right for our event. We used Kevin for our officiant and highly recommend him! He listened, full of suggestions, and did everything he was able to to make the ceremony exactly how we wanted. Nancy the event manager however, was not so caring. During the first planning meeting, she seems disinterested. Our rehearsal was rushed, less then 10 minutes, and some details that we held most important were not even discussed and left out due to her rushing us off the property. The day of our event, we had numerous complaints and comments of her professionalism and tact in which she spoke to them. All other vendors we chose, suggested by Ainsworth House, were amazing.
