Wadsworth Mansion was the perfect location for my wedding ceremony and reception! It is a stunningly beautiful venue that is both grand and intimate at the same time. The staff is also lovely. Jessica was my coordinator, and throughout the process she was on top of everything, answering all of my questions speedily and with extremely helpful details and suggestions. Natalie was the on-site coordinator for the day of, and she did a great job of helping to ensure everything ran smoothly. I'm so glad I chose Wadsworth for our venue; I highly recommend booking with them!

A must for a beautiful New England wedding!

The Wadsworth is the full package--a beautiful, historic venue with helpful staff who encouraged us to explore our vision. They offered support throughout the planning process, have a vast network of referrals and recommendations, and helped make day of coordination a dream. From the very first visit, we knew this venue was perfect for us. If you have any hesitation on the split dining rooms, we had 170 guests at our November 2023 wedding, and absolutely loved how intimate the rooms were, and it made dinner feel all the more special and intentional. We cannot recommend this venue enough!

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!
