We loved Black Pearl on the Columbia. First of all, the venue is stunning, with an incredible view of the water and of Mt. Hood on a clear day. The space was big enough to hold both our ceremony and reception, one on each floor, for 235 guests. The huge windows are beautiful, and make you feel like you are outdoors. The staff was extremely accessible and responsive to our questions leading up to the big day, and they gave us a very affordable price, since at the time when we booked them, they had only held three weddings there so far. Sommer was very kind, meeting me there once on her own time just so that my mom, who was visiting from California, could see the space before the big day. Although there was no bridal suite, we used the 3rd level mezzanine as a makeshift suite of sorts by using the venue's screens, and that worked really well for us. Black Pearl is also on allseated.com, which was very helpful for seating charts. They have all the tables and chairs you need, which saves money on rentals. Be aware that you will need all of your setup and cleanup to occur on the day of your wedding. We did our rehearsal in the park nearby, and had friends and family set up all chairs and tables the morning of our wedding. We also had to pay an extra fee to our dinnerware/flatware/linens rental company, since they had to pick up the rentals the night of the wedding instead of the next morning. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a venue close to nature, but protected from the often-unpredictable weather!Sent on 10/28/2019
