The nonprofit World Forestry Center is dedicated to creating and inspiring champions of sustainable forestry. The world needs trees and forests on so many levels and it’s our job to educate professionals and the general public that trees are integral to our well-being. It’s an important mission and one we don’t take lightly. You help us support that mission by renting our facilities.
Located in Portland's beautiful Washington Park, the World Forestry Center is conveiently located just 10 minutes from downtown and directly on the MAX Light Rail Line. We have all the things you need to create your perfect urban forest wedding: venues with stunning wooden interiors and polished stone floors, an experienced staff that is dedicated to making your event a success, and a large preferred caterers list so you have many budget and menu options. But we are more than buildings and service. We are champions of trees. And we hope that you will be too.

We love any and all opportunities that we have to work with the World Forestry Center. We produce some of our favorite corporate and weddings at their facility -- they even hosted us for our company holiday party for this last year. They are always so accommodating and flexible for our installs and allow us to be innovative. We find that together we make a great team!
