Gorge crest is magical
Gorge Crest is THE BEST place to elope and have a full wedding party! After COVID-19 through a wrench in our original wedding plans, we decided to elope in the Pacific Northwest. We looked at multiple options (including a few in the Hood River / Mt Hood area) and decided on Gorge Crest for the following reasons: 1) First, the views are magical. 2) You can stay on the property. The red barn you see in the photos has an apartment above, where we stayed for multiple nights, waking up each morning to a sunkissed Mt. Hood. If you don't stay there, this space is perfectly positioned as a getting ready area for the bridal party. We used it for both. 3) The property is versatile. And it's got a great vibe. We had dinner for two after our ceremony. 4) When you see Gorge Crest you can envision the party that it can create. It has a string-lit dance floor, hammocks, lights, smaller spaces for people to break off, wild flowers, fields, vineyards, and a flat grassy space. While it was just me and my husband for our elopement, I have no doubt that it would be a special place to bring friends and family together to celebrate. My husband and I had an extraordinary experience and are so grateful that we chose Gorge Crest.Sent on 01/14/2021

Amazing Owners and Views!
The minute we parked and walked out on to the lawn, we were absolutely sold on having our wedding at Gorge Crest Vineyards. We were blown away by the amazing view. One of our requirements was to have Mt. Hood in the background of our ceremony. Jena then showed us around the property and we could not stop smiling as we imagined our guests’ reactions to where we were having our special day.Sent on 08/20/2020
Obviously getting married in the summer of 2020 wasn’t easy for anyone. Due to COVID restrictions, we were having second thoughts about our original venue about 1 month before our wedding. We reached out to Gorge Crest, Jena was incredibly responsive and responded to our inquiry right away. We were able to schedule our tour practically the next day. I had booked our day of coordinator, photographer, DJ, and venue 11 months in advance. Even though they have a preferred vendor list, Jena worked with us so we could keep all of our original vendors we had already booked. Jena worked with our coordinator to ensure she understood the layout of the property and all of the things she needed to be aware of. We did have to rebook a photographer and caterer. We went through their preferred vendor list and they were all amazing to work with.
We reserved the venue and then four days later, the Washington Governor said no more wedding receptions after a three week grace period. Jena worked with local government to understand the restrictions that were being put in place and things we could do that would still meet the guidelines. Unfortunately, the definition of wedding receptions are defined as anything with food, drink, and/or dancing adjacent to a wedding ceremony. Our wedding date was the weekend right after the three week grace period. During the uncertain times, Jena worked with us to find a solution.
We had a great experience working with Gorge Crest Vineyards. Everyone we talked to about the venue all had amazing things to say about working with Jena. They are very respected in the community. Lastly, they have the cutest stationary. Jena is so thoughtful by sending thank you's and looking forward to the big day post cards. If you’re looking into figuring out all your wedding plans, don’t wait to go see this venue because their dates definitely book up fast! If you think the pictures are amazing, just wait until you see it in person!

Gorge Crest Vineyards is one of the Columbia Gorge's most picturesque event and wedding venues. The lawn provides a sweeping view of the Gorge, whose most celebrated resident, Mt. Hood, lies front and center. Indoor facilities provide shelter in the case of temperamental weather -- a necessity in our unpredictable Northwest clime. If you are looking for a gorgeous outdoor venue, we definitely recommend touring Gorge Crest.
