Bridal Veil Lakes is an outdoor, garden-style wedding venue located in Bridal Veil, Oregon. Situated just 30 minutes east of Portland in the historic Columbia River Gorge, this picturesque venue boasts beautiful wildflowers and lush forests. You and your guests will enjoy a tranquil lake setting as you say your “I do’s.” Bridal Veil Lakes looks forward to making your special day unforgettable.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can accommodate up to 350 guests at this waterfront venue. For your ceremony, you can exchange your vows underneath a romantic, decorative arch. Their three-acre, spring-fed lake will serve as your backdrop. Towering old growth forests will add a touch of drama and romance. As your guests enjoy cocktail hour on their covered patio, you and your spouse can hop in a canoe for truly one-of-a-kind photographs. For your reception, you and your loved ones can dine and dance the night away in their open-air pavilion. Both the patio and pavilion are 800 square feet each, and are equipped with decorative lighting and electricity.

Perfect Gorge Venue

We absolutely loved getting married at BVL! It’s impossible to describe how beautiful this venue is, you just have to see it in person. We loved working with Judy who was enthusiastic and helpful during our tours of the property, and Jennifer in the office is very responsive and kind with questions. I would highly recommend a coordinator as the venue itself is huge, but being able to get into a canoe after your ceremony and have time alone on the lake before joining your cocktail hour? You can’t beat that. If you’re looking for a gorge venue that’s close to Portland, this is it. :)

Absolute magic

Capturing the magic of Bridal Veil Lakes as a wedding venue is an impossible task online. I cannot speak highly enough of this place and the people who run it. My wedding this past weekend was literally perfect, made so by the incredible surroundings, the beautiful flowers, and the lush scenery. Jennifer and the entire BVL team were communicative, friendly, and amazing to work with for our entire planning process. The venue itself is a steal in terms of price, and I wish I could relive my experiences here all over again. My guests were entranced, and so many people commented on how perfect and fun the venue was. 20/10 recommend!

Breathtaking!

This venue is simply stunning! Our guests just loved wandering the grounds and had too much fun in the canoes. To top it off, we even had birds flying around during our ceremony, which only enhanced the beauty of this place. Judy, the owner, is incredibly kind and attentive to all her clients. We highly recommend Bridal Veil Lakes!
