    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.

    Beautiful venue with amazing staff

    My husband and I got married here in September and we had nothing but a positive experience! The owner was very kind, our coordinator was always on top of things and when we forgot to include a small dance in our plan, she was able to coordinate with the DJ for us right away and everything went smoothly! The food here is AMAZING, they weren't kidding when they told us they take pride in their food --- and our guests even got to meet the chef! We did the all-inclusive package so after the reception, my husband, myself and the wedding party got to stay at the location and the staff brought out midnight snacks for us to eat by the fireplace. We had such an amazing day and couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Empress Estate and the staff for helping us create such a magical moment!

    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.

  • 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
