A day we will never forget...
Being married at the Wadsworth Mansion was an easy decision once we walked the grounds and saw how stunning the mansion came to life. The grounds are kept up in perfect condition and added a perfect backdrop for our wedding ceremony and reception. Working with Deb, Jess and Meg was simply perfect. From the welcome packet which explained all of the little details to the communication to ensure everything was lining up was seamless. All three ladies were there to ensure we had the most perfect and flawless day. What makes the mansion unique is having the building to yourself. There are no two weddings on the same day. We very much enjoyed using both ballrooms for our friends and family. Trust them when it comes to designing your layout. They are very much experienced with all things weddings and if we could do it all over again, we would!! Thank you again, Wadsworth for making this a day we will never forget!Sent on 10/19/2018

Beautiful venue and great team!
We had our multicultural wedding here (Indian wedding in the morning followed by a western wedding in the evening and then a reception) and Jessica and her staff were the best team for the job. The grounds were beautiful, the venue was flexible with all of our crazy requests, and the value for money was awesome. So many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they have attended, and much of it was due to the gorgeous venue. Highly recommend!Sent on 06/03/2019

They have a great team at Wadsworth, I can't praise them enough. They were incredibly responsive and able to answer every question I had (and there were many- this was my first wedding after all!) and guide me through what I needed to consider based on what they've done in the past, which was so helpful in allowing me to make my own choices, knowing what is possible and pushing the bounds! They were right on board when I said we wanted to have pool tables, for example, and seemed so happy to see us happy!Sent on 06/21/2019
Wadsworth Mansion's reply:
The Wadsworth Mansion is an exceptional venue. The outdoor wedding ceremony options work particularly well for string ensembles. Both the chapel area in the pines and the patio area at the rear of the mansion provide a "shell" or amphitheater for musicians and the music carries beautifully. Bravo!!
We play at Wadsworth often, and their team is always organized and easy to work with. One time when there was a rainstorm that started just before an outdoor ceremony, we saw them quickly and seamlessly move an entire ceremony indoors in a matter of minutes. Thank you for always making our job easy, and see you again soon!
We LOVE to create our magic at Wadsworth Mansion with their elegant setting inside the mansion and their spectacular surrounding grounds! Mary & Team at Floral Affair
