    We had an absolutely wonderful wedding experience with the Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler. The event coordinator and crew went truly above and beyond to give us an incredible day. I really can not say enough good things about them. Plus, the scenery and food were great! I don’t have any scenery pics on my phone but if you know the Columbia Gorge, you can imagine!

    What started as a family meet and greet, was easily transformed into a wedding with the help of Morgan. She explained the whole process and we set out easily creating a beautiful and intimate setting on the Sternwheeler. The captain was perfect, just as you would picture a boat captain. The food was very good. The table linens and chair sashes made the perfect addition. The crew was fantastic, very accomodating and very professional. We will remember our trip always and plan to make it a yearly adventure. You can't beat heading east or west on the Columbia.

    Unbeatable venue for scenery, friendly and helpful staff, and overall excellent memories. Few places can rival the novelty and plain fun of a huge sternwheeler as it drifts down the Willamette. Check this place out!

    There is no place in Portland where you can get the attention to detail and the experience you get with the people at the Portland Spirit. If you party is small or large, they will give you the attention and follow thru found no where else. For many years we have enjoyed working with the Portland Spirit and know that they care about their brides. Every event with them if different, because of the Portland you will see as you go down the river with them on your event. We would suggest the Portland Spirit to Brides looking for that once on a lifetime wedding.
