We had our ceremony here at The Old Church. It was beautiful and the staff there is easy to work with. The aisle is a little narrow, but my dad and I fit fine with my poofy dress. However, I don't recommend large decorations on the pews. The church is beautiful and really doesn't need many decorations.

We absolutely LOVED the Old Church! It's so stunning, so unique and perfect for couples who like the traditional feel of a church wedding but aren't themselves religious (the venue is completely secular).

I'll confess that I first came across it on a Reddit thread of affordable Portland venues, and this was close to the top. We had a winter wedding, and it was just perfection.

The space itself is so beautiful that you don't need to do too much decorating, and being able to spread out through the entire building provides a great multi-space feeling for the reception. For example, in addition to the main reception hall, where people were mingling and dancing, some folks would sit in the sanctuary pews and chat in groups, while others hung out downstairs in the basement, which we transformed into the tacky Christmas room.

The Old Church did a wonderful job of working with all our vendors, and we could not have asked for more. Not only was it incredibly affordable, it's so iconic that whenever we drive by it, we can smile and remember our amazing wedding.

Finally, we love that they are a nonprofit dedicated to music performances, and are supported in large part by the weddings they host. So just by having this rad, beautiful, affordable venue, we are also helping the Portland music scene.

A+++++++ Would get married in again!

We really loved having our wedding here. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, and the docent was very helpful with all aspects, from our first tour to the day of. Parking is a minor issue, as their are a number of lots near the venue, and the venue itself is very inexpensive for how beautiful it is and for it being in downtown. I would definitely recommend this place to others looking for a really photogenic indoor wedding venue.
