The Perfect Venue

This was my dream venue with the dream experience. I couldn't suggest a better place to get married. Everyone was so kind and thoughtful. The views are incredible, and so is the quality of care put into every decision. I would definitely rate this 10/10!

perfect day

Our wedding at CGH was amazing. Marrisa is the coordinator at the venue and was exceptional to work with. She is super responsive and patient. On the day of our wedding, she made sure my groom and I ate appetizers, got drinks during cocktail hour, and got dinner. She worked flawlessly with our photographer and DJ to make sure we had a completely stress-free night. Part of my vision included paper lanterns, but due to the wind a number of them came down during the event. Marrisa was kind and respectful despite our accidental snafu. Needless to say, we had the flexibility to add our own decor to personalize our day. This wedding was worth every penny and Marrisa played an invaluable role to make our day amazing.

It was an honor to work with Columbia Gorge Hotel at Erin and Kevin's wedding this past Saturday. Our couple was stress free while doing their wedding prep which says amazing things about their wedding planner Teresa and her staff. We also liked seeing Teresa's staff ensure that our couple ate and drank. They went over and beyond by catering their drinks and appetizers to the garden while we were capturing their after ceremony portraits. Their reception was beautiful and fun! We highly recommend the Columbia Gorge Hotel for all your events and wedding needs.
