We went to a charity event for homeless animals in Multnomah County. We were in one of the big meeting rooms right next door to the restaurant grill.
The place was filled to the gills with about 100-125 folks. There was a live band doing 80s music as well. Despite all the folks and music, the acoustics in the room managed it just fine. I could still have a conversation and my ears were not bloody from the music.
There are huge windows, a deck, and the vast view added to the ambience. It's a nice setting and the grounds are well managed.
The space was initmate, yet could hold its own with a big group.
If you are looking to book your wedding venue here STAY CLEAR!
To sum it up:
1) Numbers kept changing
2) Wedding Coordinator had a family emergency
3) Food took 1 1/2 hours to serve
4) Food did not taste/look like the tasting
Overall we had a great time and even though all these things went wrong we enjoyed ourself.
My advice: If you are looking to plan your OWN wedding and take on a lot of the responsibility yourself a great place to go - just don't be surprised if the communication is sub-standard and the level of professionalism is straight up MISSING!
Visited my friend in Portland and we came to Gresham, OR to golf here. The course is beautiful and backs up to a little forest. The staff is nice and the course is challenging.
Recently came here for a wedding and had a great time. The location offers great views of the valley and has a wonderful forested background. Although we had some problems with rain early on, it eventually cleared up and the vows were complete.
The reception after in the dining hall was excellent. Don't know if the food was done in house or catered, but it was very good. There is a nice sized dance floor in the middle that was perfect.
I would recommend having your wedding here if you have a larger ceremony planned (200-300 people) and want a perfect view of Oregon as your backdrop to wow out of town guests.
