Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. You’re celebrating the start of a new, lifelong adventure with the person you care for the most. Because it’s such a special day, it’s also often preceded by months of planning and thousands of decisions, big and small.
When it comes to the venue, you’ll want to choose a place that shows outwardly the depth of love you feel inwardly for your future spouse. Become inspired for your most special day by checking out our ten picks for the best luxurious Pacific Northwest wedding venues.
1. Gary Gables Estate
The Gary Gables Estate in Portland is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Pacific Northwest. Tying the knot against the backdrop of the luscious Oregon foliage and the classy, repurposed farmhouse is sure to make for a memorable day and gorgeous photos.
Couples get use of the entire estate for their wedding day. This includes preparation rooms for the bride and the groom, plenty of space for food prep, and seating for up to 260 guests. This luxurious wedding venue has a long waiting list because it’s also one of the most affordable luxury venues in Oregon.
2. Terra Blanca Winery
The Terra Blanca Winery and Estate is located in the rain shadow of the Cascade mountains. This means the first big advantage is that your special day will probably not get rained out!
Renting the Terra Blanca gets you full access to the 300-acre wine estate, a Tuscan ballroom with 15-foot windows, and breathtaking mountain views. There’s a stone fireplace that’s great for photos, romantic ambient lighting, and winter weddings.
The Executive Chef, Jim Vande Berg, also makes the Terra Blanca a favorite of Pacific Northwest wedding coordinators because exquisite catering is built into the package.
3. Laurel Creek Manor
Pacific Northwest wedding photographers adore Laurel Creek Manor weddings because it does both intimate indoor weddings and stunning outdoor weddings so well. The private estate comes equipped with a DJ booth and areas for catering.
The sprawling grounds also give wedding planners plenty of room to work with when coordinating the big day.
4. Cubanisimo Vineyards
The Cubanisimo Vineyards are family-owned and serve as an excellent scenic outdoor wedding venue. Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Hood, and the vineyards in the background give the couple a perfect framing and the wedding photographer plenty to work with.
Outdoor weddings can seat up to 200 guests, while only 40 can fit in indoor venues. What makes the Cubanisimo experience truly spectacular is the family’s dedication to giving you professional service on your special day.
5. Columbia Gorge Hotel
The Columbia George Hotel in Oregon is a National Historic Site that can give you one of the most sophisticated indoor or outdoor weddings. You can get married outside on one of the hotel’s three lawns or in the ornate ballroom.
The Columbia George is great for massive guest lists, and it can double as guest accommodation if you’re having a destination wedding. The spa also makes it the perfect place to kick off your honeymoon!
6. AK Diamond J Ranch
The AK Diamond Ranch in Alaska serves as a divine venue for Alaskan weddings, destination weddings, and elopements. The owners of the 25-acre ranch specially redesigned the property to give couples unforgettable weekend wedding experiences.
The Ranch gives you the choice between a repurposed barn (which is far more beautiful than it sounds) and a pavilion that faces straight toward Alaska’s wild mountains.
7. Kiana Lodge
Pacific Northwest Weddings, the magazine, rates Kitsap County as one of the best areas for weddings in the Pacific Northwest. Kiana Lodge is the prettiest wedding venue in Kitsap County.
Located on the bank just south of Liberty Bay, Kiana Lodge has stunning lawns and water-side real estate for the perfect ceremony. Get married or hold your reception in the beautiful wood-paneled events space, and treat yourself or your guests to luxury living in the lodge itself.
Another wonderful aspect of the lodge is that you can work with their wedding planner. They will know all the venue’s ins and outs and the area’s local wedding scene. If you’ve got someone else in mind, your personal planner can still utilize the area’s rich resources and countless wedding vendors.
8. Elkins Resort
The Elkins Resort on Priest Lake is another perfect water-side venue for a luxurious wedding experience. Surrounded by green forests (or white in the winter), you can get married far away from the noise and chaos of civilization.
However, you’re not cut off by any means, either. The venue has in-house catering and even sound equipment. It’s an all-inclusive venue, great for destination weddings, and tied with the Columbia Gorge Hotel for the most versatile venue on our list.
9. Talus Rock Retreat
Just down the road from the Elkins is the Talus Rock Retreat. Though it’s more geared towards smaller weddings, it’s not shy about dazzling guests with the most luxurious amenities.
The stunning old mansion will give you and your 46 (maximum) guests wonderous accommodations and great venues for an indoor or outdoor wedding. It’s a great spot for green summer weddings and white winter weddings alike.
10. The Woodmark Hotel
The Woodmark Hotel is your go-to destination for lavish weddings. The spa and yacht club make for a decadent backdrop and experience even before the wedding begins.
Get married on Lake Washington and take your wedding photos in one of the hotel’s boats. The hotel can cater for everything, and can even give you its preferred list of planners, caterers, and the best Pacific Northwest wedding photographers.
