My husband and I cannot say enough positive things about working with the World Trade Center in Portland. Our wedding was absolutely perfect - the staff and planners took care of every detail so we had a stress-free wedding day. Even now, months later, our guests still tell us how fantastic the food was - we originally had planned on doing an hors d'oeuvres reception, but decided a couple weeks out to go with a buffet. It was delicious!Sent on 01/22/2014
We worked with Carrie during our planning process, and Lorne and Mike the day of - absolutely wonderful!

Our dream venue
This venue was me and my husband’s dream location! It’s modern and elegant! It was wonderful to have the ceremony & reception in the same building! The view was breathtaking. Elise was easy to chat with and the entire staff was very helpful and accommodating! There were a couple hiccups with communication between my coordinator and Elise that I had to correct but overall everything worked out! My wedding day was absolutely perfect! Everything we could’ve hoped for from a venue! Also, the food was AMAZING!! Thank you to all the staff who helped on our wedding day!Sent on 04/08/2019

We had both our ceremony and reception at the World Trade Center. Marcelene, the onsite event coordinator, was an absolute delight to work with. She has decades of experience in the wedding industry and has a lot of wonderful ideas and tips to share. She was very careful to let our dreams shine, and only offer advice if she was asked. Mike, the catering manager, has been there for 15(ish) years and knows the ins and outs of the entire site. The bridal party and our families were very impressed with Mike and his team both the night of our wedding as well as through the coordination process. Lorne is the banquet manager and is an absolute dream. We had a couple day-of changes that he helped us work though without causing additional stress or concern to anyone involved. He was always a step ahead of us too; he has been at the WTC for 17(ish) years and has done MANY events onsite.Sent on 03/30/2015
Food: AMAZING. Everyone loved it. Our choices: Cali Cut Loin, Jamaican Jerk Pork and Cedar Plank salmon.
Staff: each server and the aforementioned staff went out of their way to make our day super special. Mike even helped coordinate a bit onsite with the DJ to help keep things moving.
Venue: we had our ceremony on the mezzanine level, overlooking the atrium. The space is small, which was perfect for our 140 person event. The reception was on the Sky Bridge Terrace. The photos on this site do not do the space justice. It was absolutely breath-taking, and as one of my guests said, it was a fairytale space with the lights wrapped around each column.
Location: we lucked out with weather and were able to take pictures outside along the waterfront as well as within the venue. It was a perfect mix!
Cons: Public: some of the space is always accessible by the public. This came into play when the groom and his groomsmen had some random lady walk in off the street to use the restroom. While there are signs that say "no public restroom" -just be aware that it can happen.
