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

We had the most magical wedding day at the mansion! It is absolutely beautiful there with indoor/outdoor options as to how you would like the ceremony and reception to take place. The grounds are impeccable as is the interior. Jessica and the staff are responsive, friendly and professional, leading up to and on the day of they make sure all ran smoothly without us having to worry about a thing. They even helped us bump up the time of our firework display because the weather was calling for rain! They were so on it, and helpful at every turn. I would recommend the venue without hesitation as well as their preferred vendors. By working with the preferred vendors, there was such a sense of teamwork among the venue, caterers and DJ. All went off without a hitch! We also included a photo from our photographers Vicki + Erik who captured the mansion so beautifully. We cannot imagine having gotten married anywhere else and would recommend the venue without hesitation!Sent on 10/25/2019

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:Thank you so much for your kind words, Melissa! Your wedding was truly a unique reflection of you two and we were honored to host it at the Mansion. We wish you years of happiness!
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
