    Highly recommended!!! Exceeded my already high expectations!

    Every detail was amazing all along the way. The folks at Ainsworth were exceptional to work with, professional, timely, thorough and more! The day was perfect in every way and our wedding outside with reception inside was just beyond description. Our guests are still talking about how wonderful the setting was! High recommended!

    Magical, Beautiful, and Perfect!

    I can't even begin to express how happy my husband and I are with our choice to have our wedding at Ainsworth House & Gardens. From our very first visit, Kevin had us sold. The grounds are nothing short of magical. I chose their concierge package which came with a wedding planner/day of coordinator. Nancy was my planner/coordinator and I COULD NOT have done this without her. She did all of the vendor contracts and made sure everyone was paid on time. We just had certain payments we made to the venue, then Nancy dolled it out to the vendors. We had to have exchanged close to 200 emails throughout this process and Nancy was ALWAYS so happy to help and easy to work with. She answered all my questions, offered up suggestions based on her expertise, and everything went perfectly. Planning a wedding is freaking STRESSFUL. If it weren't for Nancy, I would have said, "Screw it!" and we would have eloped! Agh... just EVERYTHING! She helped with decorations, choosing a caterer and photographer, a place to have our rehearsal dinner.... Kevin was supposed to be our officiant, but had a family matter come up a few months before. He and Nancy recommended Pastor Mike who ended up being absolutely PERFECT. I'll never be able to fully express my gratitude to Nancy and all of the staff at Ainsworth House. We had around 90 people at the ceremony and about 80 at the reception (no kids) and it was the perfect amount of people for the space. If I could give more stars, I would! DEFINITELY check them out on your search for the perfect wedding venue. I promise you won't be disappointed. THANK YOU AGAIN, AINSWORTH HOUSE!!!!!!!

    Beautiful historic venue!

    The Ainsworth venue has a comfortable, intimate feel and can work for up to 120 guests. We had approximately 80 and the reception layout was still roomy. The grounds are beautiful and the historic home made for a lovely place to get ready and the photos came out stunning! It was perfect for our Victorian theme. The staff is very accommodating and understanding and they want to make sure you have the wedding you have been dreaming of! We highly recommended Ainsworth!!

    Magical wedding experience.

    Our wedding at the ainsworth house was beautiful and we got so many compliments in the venue. Laurie was our wedding coordinator and she is absolutely amazing. She was so responsive to our every need and incredibly knowledgeable. Our wedding was in March so we ended up getting married indoors and the team at the ainsworth house made the flip for the reception so smooth. I would recommend the ainsworth house to anyone. It was a beautiful and personal experience.

    Ainsworth was the best choice. Everyone was so helpful and the day went off without a hitch. Krystle was a lifesaver and helped the whole day run smoothly. The gardens were gorgeous and I could not have had a better day or venue for our wedding day. So happy with our choice.

    Prior to coming to Ainsworth House we had toured almost a dozen venues. We couldn't seem to find a place that had everything we wanted, until we found this beautiful property. Not only was the physical venue breathtaking, but the owners and staff were incredible. They were kind, encouraging, supportive and they were a large part of making our special day so incredible. Krystle Allen is amazing! She was patient, yet directive, and so sweet. I would not have survived the chaos without her. Planning a wedding, and then being in a wedding, are such special experiences and there is no other team and no other venue that I would have rather shared this day with. I highly recommend them anyone looking for the perfect wedding day!

    Ainsworth House and Gardens was perfect for my wedding ceremony and reception and could not have been happier with choosing to get married here! I loved working with Nancy to plan my big day and she and the owner, Kevin, were very responsive and helpful from Day 1. I loved the historic home and the gardens are so well kept and beautiful! So many areas to take gorgeous wedding photos! The price is very competitive and they do not nickel and dime you for everything like other venues and having Nancy as my coordinator was included! Although I live in Nashville, Nancy made the process very easy and efficient, fitting me in when I was visiting and making sure I was able to get what I needed as I planned from far away. The list of preferred vendors was extremely helpful, but I loved that we were able to ultimately choose who we wanted and Nancy helped facilitate that connection if necessary. For example, I decided to use chairs from another company instead of the chairs at Ainsworth and Nancy helped me price out the best deal! She was very organized and made sure to ask all of the right questions to get even the littlest details nailed down and to make sure I was happy. They also allowed me to bring in all of my personal decor-like cornhole boards and different signs and things and gave suggestions on where to put it all. She was so patient and understanding and I could not have asked for a better venue or coordinator. I received so many compliments on the venue and gardens from our guests and what a great time they had. My wedding day was perfect and that was in large part because of Nancy and the Ainsworth House. I highly recommend them for any special event and I cannot thank them enough for everything!

    We truly could not be more satisfied with the service we received or the beauty of the space. From the very beginning, Kevin greeted us with enthusiasm and gave us a thorough tour of the gorgeous house and gardens. Kevin, Nancy, and Renee all responded to our emails promptly as we planned our big day. Not only is the venue competitively priced, but many items were included in the price of the venue that we otherwise would have needed to rent if we had used a different venue (tables and chairs, tablecloths and napkins, centerpiece components, etc.) Kevin provided us with a list of preferred vendors, which was very helpful to have as we researched our options, and we ended up using several of the preferred vendors. Knowing that these vendors already had a positive relationship with the venue and were familiar with the venue's layout and resources was very reassuring. Several guests came up to us during our reception to say how much they loved Ainsworth House. We would recommend the venue without hesitation to anyone planning an event.

    We had our wedding at Ainsworth House & Gardens the end of April, 2017, and it was an amazing venue in every way! From our very first contact and tour with Kevin, through the planning process and to our wedding day, we felt confident every detail was being carefully and thoughtfully considered. The coordinators, Nancy then Krystle, met with us several times, and were always super responsive anytime we reached out with a question. They helped us keep on track, and helped immensely by making planning suggestions along the way. Kevin officiated for us, and performed a beautiful wedding ceremony that was really meaningful to us, and enjoyable for our guests, too. Krystle and her team were outstanding, making sure things went according to plan, keeping things on schedule, and attending to EVERY little detail so we didn't have to stress about anything. We couldn't have done it without her! We are still thrilled with our experience at Ainsworth House and highly recommend couples check this place out!!! ~Connie & Walt

    I definitely recommend Ainsworth House & Gardens for your wedding or whatever event you are planning. They were wonderful with everything! They helped recommend vendors for my daughter's wedding and for all the little things that we never thought of. They were kind and courteous and helped make this a wonderful spectacular wedding! Hats off to Kevin and Renee for helping make my daughter's wedding a very special day indeed!

    We just booked this venue for next Sept. When we met with Kevin at the venue, it looked small and we were not sure if it would work for us... But as we got the full view of the place we fell in love! Everything is done so beautifully! He has a list of everything to try to make things easier and cheaper, they have so many things to use for your wedding at it cuts cost, including so very well nice centerpeices. They do set up and clean up, plus you can do outside or inside and the whole venue its yours!

    My husband and I got married in July 2016 at the Ainsworth House. It was the only venue we toured because we fell in love! Looking back, we're still thrilled with our choice.
    The entire team was very welcoming and helpful. Nancy was sweet and patient when working through all the details and provided advice when we needed it. She and her team helped the whole event run smoothly.
    The grounds are beautiful. The flowers were in bloom and provided a great backdrop for the ceremony and photos after. They recently redid their ceremony walkway, which made it more accessible for our guests. My groom really enjoyed having the private room to get ready (and the air conditioning). The bride's room was great as well and only having to go down a few steps and straight to the aisle was very convenient.
    They were able to provide linens to match our color scheme and also have other table decor and items such as shepherd hooks and easels for use.
    Our wedding was perfect we received so many compliments on our venue. Thanks to the Ainsworth team!

    This venue is beyond beautiful and Kevin & Nancy were absolutely fantastic!! My husband & I got married in early July 2016 at the Ainsworth house with the ceremony outside under the large tree & the reception in their reception building. The venue does not need many decorations as it is filled with beautiful gardens. We got nothing but compliments on how gorgeous the venue was among the gardens, the grove, & throughout. A few details of the venue: the capacity is 125, there is no cake cutting fee or corkage fee (HUGE savings), and they offer a list of preferred vendors that you may choose from, but do not require you to use them.
    Nancy was our coordinator & she was ESSENTIAL to making our day wonderful. She was so incredibly supportive, responsive, kind, patient, & organized. She told me that her job was to make sure that, if anything went wrong the day of the wedding, I had absolutely no idea about it. I knew she was going to be perfect at that moment. Not everything will be perfect on the day of your wedding. Something is bound to not go as planned, whether something small or major. As the bride & groom, after months of planning & organizing (& spending a large sum of money on all the details of a wedding), it is wonderful to be able to truly enjoy your wedding day without the stress of every detail or questions. We loved her!
    Kevin was our officiant and was perfect! He officiates at the majority of ceremonies held at the venue, so he is experienced, offering great incite, subtle wit, & a lovely accent :) He is also incredibly kind & considerate! He met us in NYC during his vacation to discuss our ceremony, since we live on the East coast. We loved working with him!

    I do not think I can do justice to Ainsworth House and how happy everything was. From our first initial visit with Kevin to our meetings with Nancy everything was just made easy. The grounds are beautiful and the reception area is just has lovely. From the time the wedding started for our daughter and son-in-law everything was done we just got to sit back and relax. I would highly recommend this venue.

    Ainsworth House is the perfect venue for a wedding! Not only are the grounds gorgeous, but Kevin and Krystle were extremely helpful throughout the planning process. They have lists for all of their recommended vendors, which made the planning process so much easier. Additionally, they have tables, chairs, linens, and centerpieces that can all be used free of charge. They are very flexible; the day before our wedding, we decided to move the ceremony outside and they had no problem arranging this. Everything was set up perfectly and it was a very low stress day for us. Thank you for helping make our day so special!

    We absolutely LOVE Ainsworth House & Gardens. So much so, that when it was time to renew our vows, we just had to come back! Kevin, Nancy & Their entire team are incredible! We had our ceremony AND the reception there and could not be happier with the beautiful accommodations they provided. It is the perfect place for a stunning wedding inside and/or outside in the gardens. Nancy is an onsite wedding planning and excellent at making sure everything runs smoothly. Their additional help staff were top notch too! You definitely get way more than you pay for! LESS WORRIES!!

    If I could give Kevin and Nancy at Ainsworth House 10 stars, I would. They worked tirelessly to help my reception vision turn into a reality. Nancy responded quickly, making planning with her easy. She helped me maximize the space of the venue in order to enjoy all parts of the garden. She offered invaluable advice about selecting vendors. The reason my wedding was successful was because of the Ainsworth team. Without their planning and genuine interest in my event, it would have flopped! I would recommend them to anyone with a small guest list (the only downside is they accommodate up to 125 guests).
