My husband and I said our "I do's" in August 2017. The Empress Estate was everything that we needed and more. The crazy part about our story is that in the summer of 2016 we had already put down a deposit for a wedding venue that we wanted. Months later, I attended a wedding show, met with some of the great staff at The Empress Estate and I guess you can say the rest is history. One tour of this breathtaking venue was all that we needed to change our minds on our wedding venue. I wanted to feel like a princess on my wedding day. The Empress Estate and its staff helped to make that happen! :)

This is an amazing venue. You may spend more here, but you get what you pay for. The planners and coordinators are very insightful and Lindsay especially was very helpful. The caterers did an amazing job and baked us a gorgeous, tasty cake. We were the 1st morning wedding that they did, and my husband and I felt a bit crunched on time. I would highly recommend reserving your date early, even a year in advance, because they fill up quick. I would also advise to stick to an evening wedding. We were able to get gorgeous photos on this beautiful property. So happy we said "I do" at the Empress.

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
