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!

Ecotrust is a beautiful space with an outdoor terrace on the 3rd floor and a cozy ballroom on the 2nd floor. Our guests were blown away and we were amazed by how little we had to decorate to make the space really shine. The Ecotrust staff was wonderful to work with: communicative and helpful along the way. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue in a heartbeat!
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!
