Amber H. · Getting married on 07/24/2021
I recieved an email and text message reminder from Stephanie the coordinator the night before! It was nice since I have viewed another vendor who didn't even remember our appointment. When we arrived I instantly knew this was the place I wanted to get married at. The pictures really don't do the experience justice. The tour was given and we all fell in love. The owner of the estate was there and was able to chat with us as well! Overall this place was amazing and we booked that day!Sent on 12/31/2019

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
