Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This beautiful Gothic Revival church sits at the heart of bustling Northwest Portland—it's surrounded by vibrant restaurants and shops, as well as some great reception venues (though the church has reception halls as well)!
  • The grand sanctuary is just stunning, with a soaring vaulted ceiling, hanging candelabra chandeliers, and a magnificent brass pipe organ behind the altar. There's also the more intimate chapel, where you'll find a carved wood altar and intricate stained glass windows.
  • They're LGBTQ+-affirming and open to everyone, regardless of gender identity or expression, religious background, or socio-economic circumstance. And you don't need to be a church member to wed here. All the proceeds from your wedding go toward the historic building's upkeep.
