Ashley at Irwin Gardens was delightful to work with. She was helpful throughout the entire process of a Rehearsal Dinner event for my son and his wife. We had to rent a tent, caterer and lots of other items to make this event possible---and she was there for every step.
The grounds are to die for----and makes for such an impressive RD or wedding.
We had the coolest July weather----so we were extra happy that Ashley even supplied us with that

You couldn't ask for a more beautiful venue in the area. The house takes you back in time, and our guests loved wandering the gorgeous gardens. Working with Brittany was so refreshing after a bad experience with a previous planner. She was on top of the details and made extensive lists after every meeting. I really felt like we were being taken care of on our wedding day, and the staff worked to make it perfect.

Linnea Logston
Event Coordinator

Hello!

My name is Linnea Logston, and I can't wait to meet you! Besides my dogs, husband, and dabbling in arts & crafts, helping to bring people together and creating unforgettable memories for couples is my favorite thing to do. After graduating from Purdue University in 2022, I starting working in wedding planning both in and around Columbus, Indiana. I fell in love with meeting so many people and being able to see the way that they show their love for their family, friends, and each other.

Now, I am profoundly happy to say that I hold the role of Event Coordinator at The Inn at Irwin Gardens, and it would be my pleasure to help make your day even more special. Head to our website for more information!
