    On July 15, 2017 we were married at the Red Lion Hotel-Jantzen Beach Portland, OR. We couldn’t have been happier. Our event coordinator, Nicole Noyes is the BEST. She was very responsive to our emails, questions, accommodating, and personable. She guided us through the entire process from beginning to end. My bridal party and I was allowed access to a room to use the day before of our wedding to make the centerpieces and the hotel also had the grand ballroom all setup early. This gave us more time to do the décor. We had missed a few minor details on the day of and Nicole stepped up to the plate. She helped set up our ceremony signs and even took care of the toppers and floral for the wedding cake. We were so clueless when it came to the ceremony procession that luckily we had Nicole there for guidance. Nicole was especially so patient and understanding she made sure we had plenty of time during our traditional tea ceremony as we greeted over 600 guests at the front the door. The grand ballroom was absolutely spacious with a gorgeous backdrop of the Columbia River. Nicole and her catering staff did a wonderful job! The food was delicious and plentiful. We are all so pleased!
