5 Columbia River Gorge Wedding Venues With Spectacular Mountain, River, and Forest Views

Designated a National Scenic Area—the largest in America!—The Columbia River Gorge is also one of the 7 Wonders of the Pacific Northwest. In this spectacular canyon, the Columbia River cuts through the Cascade mountains, forming a boundary between Washington and Oregon while creating amazing cliffs, as well as mountain, river, and forest views everywhere you look. All this natural beauty is on display at the following wedding venues, where you won't need much in the way of decorations.
