- Wedding: October 2012 - Adrianna Hill Grand Ballroom
We’ll be getting married at the Adrianna Hill Grand ballroom in downtown PDX. I am so excited!
I also checked out Gray Gables, the World Forestry Center, Aerie at Eagle Landing and Lakeside Gardens as serious contenders for my wedding. They were all gorgeous and I would have been more than happy with each of them! Choosing a venue is hard! In the end, the wedding coordinator at the ballroom sold me on it with her bubbly personality and all her ideas of what we could do with the space. Any other brides planning on the same venue?

Hey Oregon Bees! You have all chosen BEAUTIFUL venues! We wanted something very intimate with a rustic theme and found a place PERFECT for us, just had to share. It is the Cloverdale Chapel in Creswell. We are actually renting the one room schoolhouse and barn too, it was very inexpensive & Gay, the owner is a doll! Here is a horrible pic of the outside, it has the original 105 year old bell in the tower!

We are getting married at Hotel Oregon in McMinnville. We fell in love with the venue as soon as we walked in, and as soon as they told us that the room is FREE with catering, we booked. Honestly, it’s the one thing that I have not one doubt about while planning my big day. It’s quirky and different without being too far out there. Also, the rooftop area in September should be GORGEOUS!

@JenniferSC: LOVE the Hotel Oregon! We stayed there for a weekend last year and it was beautiful. We’re doing our ceremony and reception at the Arista Ballroom.

We’re going to be at Donald Davis Memorial Park in Newport! We wanted the ability to go on the beach for pictures, but with handicapped guests we needed something out of the sand. This is the perfect compromise, and it’s free!

We are getting married at Pomeroy Farms in Yacolt Washington (28 miles from PDX). First time I stepped foot on the farm I was in love! It fits my motive perfically: relaxed, rustic and lace. The farm itself is on the National Register of Historic Properties, which inlcudes a working blacksmith shop, barn, herb and vegetable gardens, pastures. The wedding venue includes a large farm pavilion and event lawn.

We are using Holocene in Portland for our ceremony and reception site. They have been really nice, are extremely accommodating (allow any catering and you can bring your own wine and beer) as well as inclusive. The rental fee covers everything we would need (tables, chairs, silverware, glasses, etc) and then we pay nominal fees for plates and employees to work during it all. Plus they have a photobooth!

We are getting married at The Tumwater Room in Oregon City. Not many people know about it…it’s part of the Oregon Historical Society. A gorgeous large room holds up to 300 people, overlooking the oregon city falls.

I kind of wish I had decided on a more practical place but I’m going with Husum Highlands B&B. For all that it lacks, it’s definitely going to provide one of the most beautiful views to be seen at the Gorge.

Does anyone have experience with ceremonies at Cathedral Park in St. John’s area of North Portland? I’m worried about voice projection with all the background noise…thoughts, anyone?? The park has no way to amplify sound, and we’d be right under a bridge.

We chose Dancing Deer Mountain, in Eugene. We wanted an outdoor wedding, with the ceremony and reception at the same location, and I couldn’t have found a better venue to suit our desires. The staff were so accomodating, I was so glad to be working with owners who care so much about the business, they practically treated it like it was their own wedding! Made sure everything from start to finish was executed to perfection. Perfect site for a perfect wedding.
