Located in Portland, Oregon, Ecotrust is a historic rooftop wedding venue providing views of the surrounding city. A dedicated event center, the pet-friendly venue encompasses two central city blocks and two renovated warehouses to offer couples forward-thinking event spaces. Designed with a garden feel, the terraces showcase dramatic panoramic views of the city skyline, while the conference center one floor below supplies an industrial design and sliding barn doors for a reception.

Facilities and Capacity
Ecotrust can accommodate wedding ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners for up to 300 guests, and is covered by liability insurance for all events. Couples who book the Billy Frank, Jr. conference center can invite up to 200 of their closest friends and family to enjoy their celebration. On weekends and nights, the venue allows the atrium and rooftop terrace to provide overflow for events. The 1,800-square-foot conference center has an adjacent staging kitchen and incorporated audiovisual equipment. The picturesque 2,240-square-foot rooftop terrace directly overlooks Jamison Square, and features open-air space, a centralized fireplace, and elegant string lighting. The 7,000-square-foot Irving Street Studio is the venue’s newest space, and features hardwood floors, natural light, original wood beams, and brick archways for a unique atmosphere. Parking is available at the venue, as well as wheelchair access.

Ecotrust operates around the mission to create environmental well-being while providing economic opportunity and social equity, and applies the same service and sustainability in their event venues.

    We held our late summer wedding on the Ecotrust terrace. This venue is a magical place for such an event, as you are perched atop the building but still nestled into The Pearl District. The city skyline backed by the West Hills is gorgeous from every direction, and it provides ideal conditions for a variety of photo opportunities. As the event drifted from late afternoon into the night, and the buildings gradually illuminated, the terrace and its surroundings seemed to evolve and become beautiful in numerous ways.

    Lauren - one of the most cool-headed and professional people you could ask to work with as a site contact - seamlessly facilitated the arrangements and provided all of the information we needed to host our guests in a fashion that made everyone feel special. From layout to execution of the plan, everything felt personalized and effortless (though so much was clearly going on behind the scenes). We are also very grateful to a staff worked hard to accommodate us, despite some last-minute question marks regarding the weather.

    We wanted a wedding that felt stylish and elegant, and we wanted a planning process that was uncomplicated. Selecting Ecotrust made that combination possible, and they facilitated what my new wife and I consider to be the best day of our entire lives.

    Ecotrust was the perfect wedding venue for our special day. We held the ceremony and cocktail hour on the roof and the reception on the second floor. Lauren was great to work with. The space was everything we dreamed of!

    Thanks Ecotrust!

    We used the Ecotrust's Billy Frank, Jr. Conference Center room for a pre-wedding evening get together for our guests in August 2018, and Kaley at Ecotrust was great to work with -- very responsive and flexible!

Great venue to work with as a coordinator. They really attune to a couple's needs and are great about event revisions and last minute changes. Beautiful view from the rooftop terrace. My only piece of advice is to not book the building for the hottest day of the summer. Hah!
