    Beautiful Location

    Not only is the facility beautiful, but the staff was so helpful and accommodating every step of the way. Planning a wedding during a pandemic can be challenging, but Clare made it an easy and enjoyable process. The park outside is beautiful, and so is the reception area. All of our guests raved about the beauty of the venue.

    We moved our tentative wedding date from a Saturday to a Friday just to have this venue, and it was beyond worth it. If you want a venue in Portland with a beautiful waterfront view, and easy parking, this is it. It is a "blank slate" venue, which meant we had some leg work to do in renting and setting up all of our own chairs, tables, etc., but the crew at the OG was there every step of the way to answer any questions we had, meet with us as many times as needed, and give their advice. Clare was awesome to work with and our day-of coordinator Olivia was AMAZING and went well above and beyond what we ever expected. Our reception went off without a single hitch and we had the perfect day!!

    We got married in the park outside and then had our reception inside Ocean Gateway, with cocktail hour our on the deck. It was the perfect setting and we got lucky with even more perfect weather! We had a lot of out of town guests, so it was nice to be able to show off the beautiful waterfront and also be so close to the downtown for accommodations and pre/post wedding activities. Clare was very responsive and made sure we had all the necessary paperwork/insurance as it is city owned property. The price was reasonable, but you do need to bring in your own tables, chairs, lighting, etc. Outdoor chairs for the ceremony, however, were provided for free. Ocean Gateway is a great location to get married and makes for beautiful pictures!!
