When I was engaged, we’d booked the View Point Inn in Corbett for our Ceremony & Reception. 

I definitely don’t recommend them.  While the location is beautiful, they are overpriced and difficult to work with.  The owner is…well..for lack of a better word, crazy, and when we signed a contract with them a full year in advance to get the discounted pricing before they raised their rates, they changed Coordiantors on us SIX TIMES.  That’s right.  I got three different emails every 6-8 weeks from a new coordiantor introducing herself, and a few times I’d email them regarding a question, only to find *suprise!* a new coordinator on staff.

I used to live in portland… I still really miss it. But anyway, my best friend is getting married (probably) at the Chinese Gardens this summer. The Vista House sounds really cool, I didn’t know you could rent the place out.

I got married this past September at the West End Ballroom in downtown Portland.  The venue was great!  So pretty and the staff is so accomodating.  This is definitely a hidden gem in downtown!

Yay for Oregon girls.

I am getting married at Gray Gables Estate. I love it and i totally suggest it for people that are looking for a venue still.

@Vista – Which room are you having yours in at edgefield? I’ve heard such great things about weddings there.

@Vintage – I have heard bad feedback about the PEOPLE that work @ Viewpoint, that is so terrible because it is one of the prettiest venues in oregon. Hopefully they get there act together and that venue doesn’t go down hill, it is a gem.

@Futurebean – World trade center! That’s going to be a really cool wedding, are you doing inside or out? At prom we had it outside on the pavillion area.

I haven’t heard of a few venues you girls have listed, let’s all cross our fingers for beautiful weather this summer!

We’re getting married at a family friend’s farm and garden in the Columbia River Gorge. Super close to the Portland Womens Forum. Has an AMAZING view of the gorge…we can see crown point from there!

Did anyone consider Lakeside Gardens or Grey Gable Estates? I never had a chance to go visit those places but their ads make them look amazing!

@PDXBride – I looked at both Grey Gables and Lakeside Gardens. Grey Gables was beautiful and very nice. To be honest the pictures don’t do Grey Gables justice. If I had a larger budget, I would have chosen Grey Gables. While on the other hand, I was not impressed with Lakeside Gardens at all. The building is older and starting to look pretty run down. Lakeside Gardens seems pretty expensive for what they have to offer. 

I opted for Log House Gardens in Salem. It is very affordable and beautiful if you want an outdoor garden themed wedding.

@pdxbride and @scuba – We are getting married at Gray Gables, and you are right the pictures do not show how beautiful it really is. True though the price is a little high, but they are doing everything for me, so a higher press for zero stress is okay with me! Lol.

@scuba – That Loghouse is soo gorgeous, i would love to get married there I didn’t really want to go out of town though! It looks like you have a long aisle? That will be so beautiful.
