If you're planning a wedding in the Beaver State, you're in luck, because you won't have to travel very far before you come across a wedding venue with amazing scenery, unique features, or mountain views. But if you're wondering where to start, check out some of our favorite Oregon wedding venues and what we love about them below.
The Aerie at Eagle Landing
Happy Valley, Oregon

Marine Park at Port of Cascade Locks
Cascade Locks, Oregon

Just a short walk from the ceremony site, you'll find a reception pavilion and a charming cottage, which can seat up to 200 or 40 people respectively.
If you're into modern, minimalist style, don't miss this northeast Portland wedding venue. Union/Pine is a cozy, understated space accented with charming finishes, like hardwood floors, exposed pipes, and large windows that fill the main event space with natural light. The flexible layout means you can design the space exactly how you want—or for smaller events with 40 or fewer guests, check out the upstairs loft for a more intimate setting.
Mt. View Orchards Weddings
With majestic views of Mt. Hood and the Hood River Valley, along with acres of fruit trees, Mt. View Orchards has plenty of scenery and photo ops to go around on your wedding day. An existing 2,400-square-foot tent at the venue ensures that your wedding goes off rain or shine, and the venue also provides wooden tables, chairs, benches, and a dance floor.
