So amazing, highly recommend
Oh my goodness. I am still in disbelief over how absolutely perfect my wedding day was. I can truly say that this day was the BEST day of my life, and a huge part of that is due to the excellent team at the Empress. The planning process with Ambree and Nichole was fabulous, easy and fun. Zoe, the owner was fantastic and eager to please. The Empress mansion is incredible and breath taking, and has hundreds of amazing photo opportunities, just calling your name!Sent on 07/01/2019
My now husband, Scott and I had our reception at the newer building, the Woodland Chateau. Wow. Just wow. The space is absolutely gorgeous. We didn't feel the need to bring in much decor at all. Natural lighting just flooded the space and allowed for some amazing photographs. The venue's grounds are breath taking as well. It is high up on a hill so you will be able to see the river in the distance and the town down below. Awesome selfie opportunities just everywhere ;)
Back to the day of the wedding. Nichole is the woman of the hour, let me tell you. She made it happen and made everything flow so smoothly from beginning to end. She made sure everyone stuck to the schedule and that everyone was happy and had what they needed. ALSO. MY WEDDING DAY WAS HER BIRTHDAY! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY NICHOLE! She is the true MVP.
I couldn't recommend this venue more. Go take a tour, you will not regret it. Oh btw, the food is to die for.

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

One of the primary reasons we chose this venue is that it is practically all inclusive. The wedding coordinators that they have on staff have been super helpful and very responsive! The grounds are absolutely stunning and we are so excited to be getting married here.Sent on 01/07/2019

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
