Our dream venue!
When our original plans were no longer possible, we replanned our whole wedding in 6 weeks this past fall. The staff at the Wadsworth Mansion made this possible! Jessica and Catie were super responsive, flexible, and supportive. The property is absolutely stunning and has several versatile options for your ceremony and reception. A beautiful blend of romantic and historic - I highly recommend the Mansion for your wedding!Sent on 01/03/2021

Exceeded Our Expectations
We moved our wedding date from November 2020 to September 2020 so we could have our wedding outside rather than inside due to covid.
Our original venue did not have outdoor space, so we began looking at outdoor venues and found the Wadsworth two months before our new date. In the span of 8 weeks Jessica and Catie helped us plan the wedding of our dreams while accommodating the requirements due to covid such as spcaing guests out, etc. We felt safe and so did our guests which was very important to us. Everything was beautiful and was beyond anything we expected, especially with covid and booking the venue at such short notice. I would highly recommend this venue! We held our ceremony outside in the rose garden and utilized the tent space over the patio for our reception, but there are many options available. Catie was our event supervisor for our wedding and she ensured everything went smoothly and that we stayed on track with time. She was there for all of our questions and helped us pack up our flowers and gifts and the end of the night.Sent on 10/25/2020

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

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
