    Something Special

    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.

    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 :)
