We really are lucky to have an abundance of beautiful locations right here in Portland and I’ve curated a list of my favorites for anyone looking for the perfect spot.

Indoor wedding venues

If you’re planning a winter wedding or you just don’t want to cross your fingers for perfect weather – Portland has some amazing indoor wedding venues that are far from boring ballrooms. Here are just a few of my favorite venues located right in the city:

Jacobsen Sea Salt

Located right in the heart of SE Portland, Jacobsen Sea Salt is a 3000 square foot industrial space with exposed brick walls and plenty of beautiful natural light. The venue has a white washed look and it’s the perfect blank canvas that can be transformed to match any wedding theme. The building also has a small attached loft area that is perfect for getting ready. The ceremony area has huge vaulted cellings with old wooden beams that give off the most romantic rustic vibe.

Everett West

Everett West Wedding venue in northwest Portland

One of the newer indoor venues in Portland’s trendy Pearl District, Everett west, has quickly become one of my favorite spaces. I recently shot Ashely & Ernesto’s Wedding here and it was gorgeous! My favorite thing about this venue is the private outdoor patio. It’s the perfect size for the ceremony and can be transformed into a seating area for guests to relax with cocktails during the reception. The indoor space holds up to 300 guests, so it’s great for larger weddings and for more intimate gatherings as well. The ceiling is matte black and the floors are a polished poured concrete, which gives the venue a moody/chic vibe – my favorite!

Blockhouse

For those of us who are slightly obsessed with gardens and big green house plants (is it just me?) Blockhouse is your paradise. Their space exudes warmth and coziness with the big industrial kitchen serving some of Portland’t best culinary delights. Not to mention the venue is attached to Pomarius Nursery, where guests can wander amongst the greenery with drinks in hand. Blockhouse is located just outside of the Pearl District in Northwest Portland. The venue holds 60 guests seated, and 75 standing. There is an option to add-on the nursery space to accommodate up to 120 guests.

Cooper’s Hall

The Cooper’s Hall Tap Room is more like a bright and airy warehouse with a wall of huge wooden wine barrels. It’s such an aesthetically pleasing space with its curved ceiling and minimalist black and white color palette. Located in Portland’s central east side, it’s super convenient for anyone staying in a hotel downtown. The ceremony space can seat up to 150 guest, while the reception area is large enough for 180 guests standing. The food is next level good and of course their wine and beer list is super tasty!

The Cleaners at the Ace Hotel

The Ace Hotel in Portland has become an iconic place in the City of Roses. It’s the coolest hotel in town with it’s library-esqu lobby and classic black and white photobooth. Attached to the hotel is The Cleaners, the small but mighty event space that is full of charm. The indoor venue is right smack in the middle of downtown Portland, just a block away from the infamous Powell’s Bookstore. The high ceilings, white walls, and exposed wooden beams make this space a blank canvas so you can get creative. The capacity for this space is 70 seated and 140 standing. Believe me 140 is crowded! So I would keep The Cleaners in mind only if you’re having an more intimate wedding.

In the Summer months, Portland is a paradise for anyone who loves the great outdoors. Who needs loads of decorations when you have a light-filled canopy of trees as your backdrop? Luckily there are TONS of gorgeous outdoor venues in the Portland area and it’ll be hard to pick just one! Here are a few of my favorites to get the party started:

Silver Falls State Park

Silver Falls has to be one of my all time favorite wedding venues of all time. Maybe it has a special place in my heart because I shot my very first wedding here (lucky much?). Since then I’ve been back several times and I’m still in awe when I take a walk around the stunning South Falls trail. The venue is only about 1.5 hours drive from downtown Portland.
Not only is this venue beautiful, but it has all of the amenities you could ask for. There are many lodging options, from little bungalows to larger ranch-style accommodations. There are even campsites for your more adventurous guests. There are several ceremony locations to choose from, each with its own charm and natural beauty. Drake’s Meadow ceremony area can seat up to 220 guests, while The Old Ranch area can seat up to 75. Lovers of nature and seclusion will absolutely fall for Silver Falls!

Horning’s Hideout

At the end of a road that turns to gravel and winds it’s way through a lush forest, you’ll find your self at Horning’s Hideout. This venue is awesome. It’s family owned and operated, so you can expect to get high quality care when working with the owners to plan your wedding. Horning’s Hideout is an affordable venue, and it comes with a lot of perks! There is an on site campground, so guests can bring their tents and trailers and stay on the property. When you reserve your spot, it’s yours for 23 hours! So you’ll have plently of time to set up, party the night away, and wake up at a decent hour the next morning to say your goodbyes.

That means guests can stay onsite in one of the 102 luxurious hotel rooms. The reception area is a beautiful wooden warehouse with tall ceilings and beautiful string lights.

Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden

wedding party at the alter

The hidden oasis that is Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is a beautifully lush venue full of rare flowers and trees. The 9 acre garden has three ceremony/reception locations and several wooden bridges and trails that are perfect for a portrait session. Most couples choose to have their ceremony and portraits at the garden and then they continue on to a bar or restaurant for the reception and dinner. Although the garden does allow outside catering and event rentals to be brought in as well! If you want to see the Rhododendrons in full bloom, you’ll want to book your date in May or early June.

Mount Hood Wedding Venues

Mt Hood is the famous geological landmark of Portland, and the perfect backdrop for a gathering for friends and family. There are several venues situated on all sides (and even on top) of this iconic peak. Located between Portland and Hood River, the mountain is very accessible and most venues will have all of the modern amenities you could ask for. Let’s jump into my favorite spots on Mt. Hood!

Mount Hood Organic Farms

Mt. Hood Organic Farms is a gorgeous 200 acre property just north of Hood River, Oregon off of Hwy 35. Driving up to the venue you are greeted by a stunning view of Mt. Hood and the hundreds of orchards within the valley. Mt. Hood Organic Farms is a working farm and the on site coordinators are wonderful and so knowledgeable! They even have their very own chef and culinary team that can cater to any taste. The ceremony area has a sweeping backdrop of the mountain. My favorite part of the venue is the Apple house. It’s was once the cider house and is now the reception area/dinning hall full of antique characteristics. See more photos from Connie and Adam’s wedding at the farm.

Silcox Hut

If you’re looking for a very unique wedding venue with an adventurous touch, then Silcox Hut is your spot. When I shot a wedding here last year I joined the bridal party in a snow cat that took us to the venue on top of the mountain. It was amazing seeing the views expand as we climbed high into the clouds on the ski hill. The cozy timber and stone interior and the antique memorability on the walls makes Silcox Hut the perfect winter wedding venue. The hut can hold gatherings of up to 40 guests and there is even a lodging area for up to 24 people. Guests can also stay at Timberline Lodge, which is just a short snow cat ride away!

Couples can rent the property for the entire weekend and guests can stay in the cute log cabin bungalows. It’s very down to earth and a real escape to nature. There are a lot of recreational activites to keep all of your friends and family busy. Just a 4 mile drive from the resort you’ll find the trail head for the hike to Tamanawas Falls, which is a stunning trek and perfect for a morning hike.

Sweeping views of Mt. Hood, lush pear and apple orchards, farm-to-table dinning – what’s not to love about Mt. View Orchards? This is a truly unique venue that provides a fun, laid-back experience for couples who love the outdoors. Mt. View has their own fruit stand and they encourage catering to incorporate their products into the dinner menu. They also brew their own cider, wine, and small craft beer. So awesome!

This famous alpine lodge is full of historic charm and elegance. The carved wood details throughout the main dinning room and the museum in the lobby give all of the 1950’s nostalgia you could ask for. Timberline Lodge makes you want to put on your wool sweater, pour a glass of whiskey, and kick up your feet next to one of the many roaring fires. There are several ceremony locations to choose from and the lodge can accommodate groups of just about any size. The scenery surrounding the lodge is, of course, stunning, and I love taking photos at sunset.

Remoteness and difficulty to access is part of what makes Camp Westwind so appealing. The tides of the day will determine when you and your guests can arrive at the venue via the river ferry, which is operated by Camp Westwind’s staff. It’s perfect for those who want to start the celebrations off on an adventurous note! You’ll have easy access to several hiking trails. My favorite is Cascade Head because it has an amazing view of the coast and the entire venue. 

The venue has a large main gathering house, several guest bunkhouses, and even camping sites. Up to 145 guests can stay on the property overnight. Camp Westwind allows weekend bookings, So take a few days and disconnect from the outside world while you spend some quality time with your closest people.

The Ruins at the Astor

Astoria is my favorite Oregon Coast town because I love the ornate Victorian homes that sit up on the hillside and I love watching the massive cargo ships slowly make their way out into the Ocean. The Ruins at the Astor is located in a 100 year old building that has been renovated in the past decade.

The venue space is located in the historic main lobby. The walls are peeling and the ceiling is missing some plaster, but this is what makes the space SO charming. The Ruins is great for mid-sized weddings and guests can stay the night at the Norbald Hotel.

Celebrity sightings aside, Skamania Lodge has a lot to love. They have an amazing ropes course, endless trails, and you can even stay in one of their brand new treehouses! It seems like they are actively building new wedding related infrastructure to be a leading wedding venue in the area.
