Columbia River Gorge Venue Guide

Columbia River Gorge Venue Guide

Mt. Hood Organic Farms Wedding Photogapher

Planning your wedding at a venue in the Columbia River Gorge gives you access to one of the most unique landscapes in all of the Pacific Northwest. Endless waterfalls are accompanied by ideal destinations for your wedding or elopement.

The venues we recommend emerge you in the Columbia River Gorge, often with mountain vistas of Mt. Hood or Mt. Adams, and in some occasions both. You and your guests won’t miss a second of the beautiful micro-climate and nationally recognized scenic area.

Skamania Lodge Wedding Ceremony Site

Skamania Lodge offers our most inclusive venue in the list. More of a micro-resort than a lodge; the amenities include a zip-line course, 9 hole chip & put golf course, an ‘in house’ restaurant and plenty of rooms for you and your guests to stay.

Mt. Hood Organic Farms provides one of the most fantastic views in the area with an incredibly close vista of Mt. Hood in the background. The venue itself is stunning as the owners have hand build and hand styled the classic barn where guests often dance or have the reception.

3. Cape Horn Estate

One of the best ‘all around’ venues in the Gorge, Cape Horn Estate has a little bit of every accommodation: A beautiful ceremony backdrop, a lovey outdoor area for cocktail hour, reception and dances. Not to mention indoor spaces for both ceremony & reception in case of rain or smoke, which can be common during certain parts of the year.

This venue is tucked away into hillside which really helps feel like you can get away while still being able to make it your own. But, with plenty of guest parking and a 15 minute drive to downtown Stevenson, you and your guests can still have access to lodging and food.

4. The Perch - TenZen Springs & Garden

Arguably our favorite wedding view of the Columbia River Gorge. This venue also includes micro cabins with geothermal soaking tubs, with water sourced 3,000 ft beneath the property. Talk about the ideal place to stay with your fiance!
