Stunning and perfect wedding venue!

I can't say enough about how truly stunning and perfect this venue is and how wonderful Kate and her team were to work with throughout the process! I am the mother of the bride and both my daughter, and I are from out of town, so planning from a distance seemed daunting at first. But from the minute my daughter first saw Grace and we met Kate, we both knew it was exactly the right place for the ceremony and reception. Kate was responsive, collaborative, helpful and spot-on in all her suggestions (including for things we didn’t even know to ask like renting parking meters from the city to clear space in front of the venue). Kate’s expertise and thoughtfulness really helped to make the whole day magical. It was seamless having both the ceremony and reception in one location – each space has a different ambiance, which was wonderful. Coming from the intimate and warm white light of the ceremony and entering the reception with its grand cathedral ceiling, dramatic stained glass, stunning bar and balcony seating, made it feel as if we had in fact traveled to another location (but without the logistical fuss and bother). The side rooms for the bridal party to get ready in and the multiple additional bathrooms available on the lower floor and in the vestibule offered the functionality we needed to make everyone comfortable and the day flow beautifully. Our guests raved about how gorgeous and singular Grace is, it truly is like no other venue in Portland. We just can’t recommend Grace highly enough, in every way!

Perfect, helpful, responsive

We loved Anne Rutherford. She answered every email in a timely manner and was totally helpful, kind, and down-to-earth. Our wedding at Grace was perfect: the bar staff was fun and friendly and very cool.

The Perfect Venue

After looking at 10+ venues, we decided to look at Grace and it was the perfect fit. We needed a venue that could accomodate 190, wanted an upscale feel, and wanted to be in downtown Portland to avoid the inevitable loss of momentum that comes from shuttling guests to and from a venue. We loved that Grace has tables, chairs, plates, glassware, silverware, etc. After helping plan my sisters wedding at an all DIY venue, I can say with certainty that Grace will save you a LOT of stress (and money) by having all the amenities available in-house. Meghan was wonderful - responsive, friendly, accomodating, helpful, and patient with my 10000 questions and requests. The entire Grace team was professional, attentive, and really helped to make our wedding special. We can't recommend Grace enough!
