    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!

    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!
