Just photographed a wedding at the Balch Hotel. Amazing property, great staff! I love the historic feel to it, everything seems to be a beautiful backdrop to the pictures, from the ceremony site to the hotel lobby, photographer's delight. Great ambiance!
The Balch Hotel is a lovely setting for your wedding. This historic hotel is wonderfully cared for and there's so many wonderful opportunities for beautiful pictures! If you are considering getting married in the Gorge, be sure to take a look at the Balch Hotel!
This is a very nice venue for a couple that wants an amazing view of Mt. Hood and something that is away hustle and bustle of the city. The staff here is very helpful and easy to work with. We have Dj'd 4 weddings here in the past and we only hope to do more.
