    Two weddings at Grace, and both terrific

    As the mother of the two brides who have had wedding receptions at Grace, one in 2015 and one in 2020, I am experienced enough to offer a solid opinion on the new 2020 "Grace" - and it's just as wonderful as it was when it provided food, as a spectacular space to have a great party and a unique and stunning central bar, with excellent service and managed by the ever professional and warm Meghan. Meghan is a terrific partner in thinking about planning a wedding, and how to use the space best to maximize guests' fun. We have had DJs at both weddings, and the main floor easily transitions into a dance space. The evening lighting inside feels very romantic, and it's an easy space to dress up the way you want with table decorations, flowers, etc. Guests, especially those from out of town, really seem to be taken with the beautiful architecture and design inside Grace. Folks who have been there before say they are very glad to be inside the space again, and have fond memories of attending other events or having dinner at the former restaurant. The lower floor can easily be transformed into a pretty secular setting for the ceremony, with flowers and other decorations, and it's great to have everyone in one venue for the entire wedding. There is no other space like it anywhere near Portland. It's so close to the nightlife in Portland, that it is easy for people who want to continue partying after the reception to find a place within walking distance. I can't say enough good things about our experiences with Grace.

    Stunning Unique Space - Everything You Need

    Searching for a venue can be the toughest part of your wedding day decision. There are so many factors - table rentals, a tent, weather, decor, lighting, and most importantly are the people nice to work with. Working with Meghan and the Grace staff was such a positive experience - gracious, thoughtful, flexible. It made the decision to go with Grace easy for us. The space has everything you need and you can get creative with how you want your event to unfold. The whole process from start to finish was so amazing. They worked with our vision and were great partners with our other vendors - we so appreciated everything. On the wedding day itself, the space and staff were more than we had hoped for. Everything went off without a hitch and all our guests raved about the space. Bartenders were fantastic, taking time to make quality specialty drinks. All our thanks to the Grace team! Highly recommend!

    Grace is a gorgeous venue that all of our guests keep talking about. The food and drinks are delicious and are far above what I have experienced as a wedding guest at other venues. Our guests have complimented the food and drinks consistently since our wedding day. This was my dream venue so there's not enough words for me to describe how in love I am with Grace. Meghan Buck, the event coordinator is a real professional. She is very knowledgeable, very helpful, she's a dream for any bride like me who didn't have a clue about planning a wedding. She is a real asset and will make everything about your day perfect. Get married at Grace, it'll be the best day of your life!
