    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.

    My wedding

    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!
    It was beautiful, unique and truly perfect for my husband and I
    Thank you so much for making our wedding day so amazing and the best day of our lives

    Beautiful Estate overlooking the Columbia River. The owners and employees are active in each event to ensure a quality function.

  • White Cloud Luxury Cars Wedding Limos

    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
