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
