Here are some of my favorites in Portland and Vancouver proper!

Cooper’s Hall

Cooper’s Hall has quickly become one of Portland’s favorite wedding venues. Honestly, everything about this place is special–the food, the architecture, and the cocktails are all beyond amazing. If Cooper’s Hall steals your heart, you’ll have absolutely no regrets about throwing your party here! (accommodates about 200 people) Check out their sit HERE

Yale Union
Shooting at this amazing space has long been on my dream-venue list. With it’s massive windows and lovely white walls, it is an exceptionally dreamy wedding space–be till my photographer’s heart! This is a perfect option to get all that light and have a winter wedding! When they are not hosting weddings, they are a center for art in Southeast Portland. This one is truly special (and generally overlooked). Check out the details HERE!
The Exchange Ballroom 
This gorgeous space has the loveliest rooftop view of the city of Portland! Perfect for the prettiest rooftop portraits! I am dying to shoot a wedding on this rooftop. There are multiple options as far as locations within the Exchange, but the ballroom itseld has large windows (with all the dreamy natural light) and can accommodate 250 guests. The super lovely rooftop holds a maximum of 140 people. Peruse all your options HERE.
The Evergreen
This amazing venue is right in the heart of Southeast Portland. Its location gives you a gorgeous and well-lit bridal suite as well as some rad old buildings that make for some amazing photo locations. This space was restored to its original Arts and Crafts character in 2016, and the result is absolutely lovely!
(Accommodates up to 200 people)
