    stunning architecture and space!

    We had our wedding at The Portland Masonic in October and could not be more pleased! The architecture, space, and vibe is unforgettable. Our guests were awed and impressed! Working with the team was an absolute breeze, they were so responsive and helpful. The central location to downtown made arrival and departure a breeze! Thank you a million times! Highly recommend! Also, added bonus- they tables and chairs are included in the cost!

    Incredible Gatsby Experience

    My husband and I got married here June 23, 2018 and it was more then we ever dreamed of. Angela, her staff and Blue Elephant went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we could have ever wanted or needed. The venue fit our Great Gatsby theme and the views from the roof are just breath taking. My favorite photos are from the roof top over looking the city. The Portland Masonic was the best wedding decision we made and the staff made my wedding dreams come true ❤️

    The Portland Masonic's reply:

    Laura - it was a JOY to work with you and Steve for your June wedding. I truly had the best time getting to know you and watching your vision come to life. Your Gatsby theme was perfect in our space and such fun!

    You two are so much of the reason I love what I do. Clients like you make "my job" feel like so much fun instead of work. Thank you for sharing your special day with us!

    Happy holidays!
    Angela

    Flexible and Friendly

    Angela was a joy to work with and made sure we were well taken care of throughout the planning process. In working with our event's planning committee, we must've gone back to the site more than 5 times. Each time Angela was happy to answer endless questions and make the space work for our group. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique space and a great experience!

    The Portland Masonic's reply:

    Hi Samantha - than you so much for the kind review! Your event was a pleasure to have at our venue + I hope to work with Make-A-Wish again in the future! All my best to you all for a wonderful 2019 ahead!
