Amber Harris · Getting married on 07/24/2021
I recieved an email and text message reminder from Stephanie the coordinator the night before! It was nice since I have viewed another vendor who didn't even remember our appointment. When we arrived I instantly knew this was the place I wanted to get married at. The pictures really don't do the experience justice. The tour was given and we all fell in love. The owner of the estate was there and was able to chat with us as well! Overall this place was amazing and we booked that day!Sent on 12/31/2019
The Empress Estate's reply:Amber, it is our pleasure to be part of your big day, your family were very nice and it will be the best wedding ever. I can’t wait. Hopefully will see you soon

Great Venue with Responsive Staff
The Empress Estate is a beautiful venue. We toured the facilities in March 2019 for our December 2020 wedding. Ultimately, we decided on a venue closer to Portland but agreed that the space is wonderful and the staff is top notch. Definitely tour this place and consider it for your wedding. We both agreed it would be PERFECT for an outdoor space, though the new lodge indoor space is also gorgeous.Sent on 04/05/2019
The Empress Estate's reply:Thank you so much for your amazing recommendation! We appreciate you so much and hope your wedding is phenomenal!

We had the most amazing wedding day we could have ever imagined.Zoe and Stevie as well as the rest of the staff were very accommodating and friendly! They were also very flexible and responsive with regards to scheduling venue visits and kept us informed of upcoming "due dates" for certain decisions to be made regarding layouts and decorations which really helped our day go smoothly! And of course nothing was set in stone.....last minute decisions or changes were not a problem and they wanted our day to be exactly how we wanted it and were willing to make anything we needed to happen, happen!Sent on 09/25/2020

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so amazing and the best day of our lives

We've played at the Empress Estate multiple times and each time has been a first rate experience. The venue has been superbly prepared for both indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies. The owners are easy to communicate with and are show flexibility. They go the extra mile for brides and grooms wishes on their special day! We recommend the Empress Estate to you!
Beautiful Estate overlooking the Columbia River. The owners and employees are active in each event to ensure a quality function.
The Empress Estate is by far, the most elegant wedding venue in the area. As the owner and chauffeur of a classic wedding limo, I have the opportunity to see a number of different venues and the Empress Estates is one of the best. I have done a number of weddings and photo shoots with Stevie and Zoe and they are great people to work with. You will really enjoy having your wedding at the Empress. White Cloud Luxury Cars
