The Griffin House truly is the most incredible wedding venue, and I feel so lucky to have gotten married there last Saturday! I had been to The Griffin House several times before for their summer concerts, and knew even before I was engaged that I wanted to get married there. It was even better than I could have imagined! The Griffin House team - Marlowe, Brendan, and Claire – were very responsive to all my questions and were genuinely excited to help make it the perfect day.

Your search for the perfect, most picturesque wedding venue in the Portland area ends here. I had the privilege of attending a family wedding at The Griffin House in September 2019. The stunning natural landscape overlooking the Columbia River Gorge was matched only by the warmth that exuded from Claire and Marlowe, the venue proprietors and mother/daughter behind-the-scenes team. The layout of the ceremony space is an Instagram dream, except that photos cannot do it justice.

I officiated a wedding at The Griffin House a few weeks ago, and the Griffin family could not have provided a more generous, welcoming, and fun experience. What I loved about THE VIEW - you really have to see it to understand how beautiful it is. THE HOUSE - Well-decorated, unique architecture, and spacious - Had plenty of common areas and private spaces (perfect for the large wedding party with lots of family & friends)!
