Amazing intimate wedding venue
If you have a wedding under 100 guests, look no further than this venue. We recently tied the knot in early October with 70 people on our guest list and it was absolute perfection. Each and every one of my guests commented on how perfect it was. Blockhouse was the only venue we looked at - we knew the moment we walked in that it was the space. After booking, Emily and her team were impeccable. From helping bring the vision to life to day-of - everything was flawless. Huge thank you to this team for all of their hard work and wonderful customer service. Seriously, if you want a romantic venue and you have a smaller guest list, book this place!Sent on 10/18/2019

We recently had our wedding at the Blockhouse with the added Pomarius event space. We had about 100 guests and even at that size, it felt so intimate. From the professional, friendly staff to the beautiful, lush green space itself, I would have to say everything turned out more perfect then we could have imagined for our fall wedding. If you are looking for a unique, warm, stunning venue look no further. I would have not changed one thing. I will be using the Blockhouse again for any private events in the future. Thank you Blockhouse and Pomarius Nursery.Sent on 10/28/2019

Perfect venue for our perfect day!
The Blockhouse is so unique and intimate that we couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else after we saw the photos of the venue. My husband and I were planning our wedding while living outside of Oregon and the staff at the Blockhouse could not be more accommodating with what we wanted style-wise especially on a six-month timeline and only seeing the venue once before the actual day! The day went seamlessly (even with a rain storm) and we have the Blockhouse to thank for that :)Sent on 01/17/2020
