The grounds and mansion at the Gray Gables Estate is an ethereal and elegant wedding venue in Portland, Oregon. The Manor House was constructed in the early 20th century and, with its beautiful gardens, gives off a magical atmosphere. The luscious and historic location combined with the fantastic and passionate service of the estate’s staff help makes for a wedding to remember.

Facilities and Capacity

This charming location boasts a total of four spaces for hosting both wedding ceremonies and receptions. Exchange vows or dine in The Garden with its Grecian gazebo steeped in a historical, romantic air. You can also walk down the aisle on the quaint and rustic Manor House Lawn, which though spacious, exudes intimacy. These classical gardens are dotted with towering trees and romantic brick paths and patios. In The Rustic Koi Pond, enter an enchanting forest and say “I do” under the cool shade. The lush area possesses water features and gorgeous vegetation, for a bucolic atmosphere. These various outdoor spaces can accommodate up to 300 loved ones. Inside, couples and their guests can utilize The Ballroom. This space features large windows that let the natural light stream in for a calming ambiance and a hardwood dance floor for an extra dash of visual sophistication. This is offset by the swirling and ornate patterns of the carpeting, which demonstrate an exquisite design for a sense of refinement. Dressing rooms are available for you and the wedding party to prepare for your special day. The distinctive architecture throughout the estate provides you and your partner many opportunities for creative wedding photos. This location is also pet-friendly, allowing you to invite your furry loved ones too.

The exceptional staff at Gray Gables Estate enjoy helping you see your dream wedding come to fruition. They can help you plan and coordinate the many details of your special day. They are also flexible and creative. If the weather strikes, they have back-up options to transform interior spaces on the site for your convenience.

    Absolutely amazing venue!

    We used this venue last year for my daughter’s wedding and I cannot tell you how amazing they did at coordination (Samantha was phenomenal!), the food was some of the best food we’ve ever had, the decor, the bar, the staff, attention to detail and the overall event went so well. I couldn’t recommend this venue enough. We also used the flower shop next door and they did the most beautiful floral arrangements. Top notch!

    Great venue with beautiful outdoor spaces

    We toured this venue in March 2019 for our December 2020 wedding. It has a great vintage feel with beautiful grounds for photo ops. If beautiful wedding photos are on your must have list, this is a great venue. The indoor space was very nice and would have accommodated 150 guest list just fine. We ultimately chose a different venue just because it didn't match the vibe we were wanting for our wedding. Definitely consider it if you are looking for a beautiful outdoor venue with a vintage feel.

    Best decision we made in wedding planning

    I’m writing this review on the first day of our honeymoon because that’s how amazing Samantha, the wedding coordinator at Gray Gables venue, and her entire team were, both during the planning process and especially on our wedding day.

    Top 3 reasons we loved Gray Gables for our wedding

    (1) Samantha, wedding coordinator extraordinaire. We planned our wedding in 4 months, and Sam was always ready and available to help and guide us. In short, she’s the worlds best wedding Sherpa. She worked seamlessly with our outside vendors and her in house team flawlessly executed the services GG offers.

    (2) The beautiful outdoor and indoor spaces. This natural beauty and landscaping, and classy indoor decor, was ideal for our weddings for two reasons. The first, we had a great indoor backup plan option for the ceremony in the case of rain (it’s Portland). Secondly, we only needed to provide minimal decor and some flowers to make it wedding ready.

    (3) The food was incredible. This is not only my opinion - this was the resounding opinion of all our our guests. We selected comfort foods (ravioli, chicken, mashed potatoes, fried mac and cheese) and through a combination of talent and magic, the chef and gray gables team made the presentation of comfort food beautiful and remarkable (I literally heard remarks about this).
