Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Amazingly, this seven-acre paradise is only minutes from downtown Portland and the airport. Its crystalline lake (complete with swans and ducks), is surrounded by tall cedars, weeping willows and some of the most beautiful gardens you’ve ever seen.
  • Saying “I do” beneath a domed gazebo at water’s edge is picturesque enough, but you’ll also love taking photos beside a waterfall or stone bridge. Then continue to enjoy the view with a glass of wine, champagne, or beer on their lakeside stone patio.
  • Indoor ceremonies and receptions take full advantage of the fabulous vistas. The large Ballroom’s wall of windows and sliding glass doors frame a lush backdrop for exchanging vows as well as a gracious veranda, fringed by seasonal plantings, that juts out over the water.
