Your guests can watch your ceremony in one of our seven (7) ceremony locations, with plenty of indoor and outdoor options available. The Troutdale House allows freedom and flexibility by offering each client ten (10) hours of event time as well as allowing an open vendor policy at no extra charge.

Couples can accommodate up to 200 guests at this gorgeous venue. With four (4) outdoor locations available, you can exchange your vows in the Wisteria Courtyard which features a beautiful wooden trellis and an expansive wisteria plant that covers the entirety of the Courtyard and blooms with purple and white flowers in April/May. There is now a permanent cover over the Wisteria Courtyard that will allow for couples' to use the area year round, even during Oregon's rainy season. The cover is clear and lets in plenty of natural light, so your photos will always look fantastic. We also have Bridal Park, which is shaded and covered by mature trees and surrounded by arborvitae bushes, making it feel like your own private spot in the forest. Bridal Park gives two (2) ceremony spot options where you can either choose to exchange vows in front of vintage style doors or under a beautiful metal arch. The Rustic Lodge is the newest outside addition and features a lodge style setting with a gas fireplace, overhead heaters and a covered roof. This allows for intimate ceremonies, even on some of Oregon's wettest days.

Indoor celebrations can choose between the main floor of the building, the Enchanted Ballroom which features spacious 11 foot ceilings, multiple crystal chandeliers and enough room for up to 200 guests. The downstairs Wine Cellar features brick walls with wine barrels, giving you that fresh from the vineyard feeling.

    Great beatuiful Venue

    Half the wedding party got locked up between two semi-truck car accidents and were at least 30 minutes late. We were on a set time and called Troutdale House and they said don't worry about it. The groom nearly had a meltdown because of the semi-trucks, but everything turned out well. The venue itself is beautiful. Multiple locations where you can say your I-Do's. If you can book in May when the wisteria's bloom, it looks absolutely stunning. We highly recommend this place!

    Very flexible and fun!

    We picked Troutdale House because it was one of the only venues that was flexible with bringing your own food/drink, could change ceremony locations up until the day of, we could use their decorations for free which saved a lot of money, they have fun touches like foosball and pool (which our guests loved) and no hidden fees! It was such a fun vibe and we could make it our own instead of needing required vendors. Would absolutely recommend!

Have had the pleasure of officiating several marriages at the Troutdale House. Always enjoy working with their staff. They are professional, friendly, organized, helpful and engaging The amenities at Troutdale House are such that you have a variety of "venues" within the venue for your ceremony, and it is a truly walk in ready for your event. And the owners appear to be consistently upgrading, adding on to the venue. Easy to reach too, just of I84.

To Dine For To Dine For Wedding Caterers

Excellent venue with a top notch team for your event. Professional and efficient staff that is easy to work with. Room set up is always breathtaking.

We performed at The Troutdale House as a DJ for the wedding of Marco and Laura Murray and we were impressed by the hospitality of the on-site coordinator. The bride happened to lose her wedding ring during the setup of decor and the staff scoured the floors for about an hour until they finally found it right before the ceremony. That should tell you how much they care for their guests! It's a perfectly sized venue for any wedding reception up to about 75 guests! They had plenty of power outlets around the room for us to setup our uplighting and they even had their own lighting connected to a DMX controller to augment the dance floor lighting that we brought. The location is great and after talking to the bride and groom, confirmed that the price was just right! We would recommend any couple with a small guest list to book The Troutdale House! Here's our complete recap of the event as well as some pictures and a short video of the venue:
