    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.

    Thank you so much for your amazing recommendation! We appreciate you so much and hope your wedding is phenomenal!

    On-staff Coordinators

    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.

    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
