Ainsworth House and Gardens




Nestled on an expansive estate in Oregon City, the Ainsworth Event Center has been host to numerous events since it was built in 1851. At the Ainsworth Event Center, historic architecture meets flourishing gardens to create a charming venue ideal for a romantic vintage-style wedding day. Three distinct settings allow you to have the big day you have always dreamed of! In the Pine Tree Garden, you can exchange your vows beneath a 200-year-old Ponderosa Pine before enjoying cocktails and appetizers on the lawn. Saying your “I do’s” on the steps of the Main House after being dropped off by a horse-drawn carriage is always a favorite for couples looking for that fairytale feel. Smaller groups can enjoy a wedding in the Ainsworth Gardens, where you can share your first kiss as spouses beneath a wrought iron gazebo draped in lights and flowers. Move indoors for a reception in the elegant Conservatory, where you can dance the night away and enjoy views of the surrounding property out of expansive windows.
