    A beautiful historical location to have a wedding

    We loved having our wedding at Willamette Heritage Center. It is such a charming historical location. Everyone we worked with was very nice and flexible with us, and the grounds were very scenic for the photography.

    Affordable and accommodating

    The Willamette Heritage Center was a beautiful, affordable venue. I liked that they allow you to use whichever vendors you choose. (I had a couple friends do the catering which is how we saved money.) The venue coordinator and grounds keepers were so helpful and supportive.

    Both the Dye House and the Spinning Room are two locations in the Salem area that I love taking wedding cakes to. The backdrops are historical and eyecatching, and the Mission Mill staff is a joy to work with. They work really hard to make sure the venue is perfect for its clients.
