Wedding Ceromony and reception
Portland, OR, USA
we held our wedding at Edgefield in Troutdale for 75 people and came in around $11000.00 total (including dress, etc). I can't remember the exact cost of the facility, but we had an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception in an attached space. (Blackberry Meadow and Blackberry Hall). Check it out, it's nontraditional but we enjoyed it

How many guests are you looking to invite? What kind of feel are you trying to go for?
Sauvie Island, OR, USA
Hello. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! There are lots of places that have that. Do you have a style you are going for? Farm, forest, garden, winery, etc?
There is also Camp Colton which I think has outdoor ceremony area: http://www.campcolton.com
We are having out wedding reception at the Holocene. Their rental fee is $1,500.00 for everything they have to offer. Tables, chairs, sound system. If you are looking for a really cool indoor space, it's really quite the bargain.
Thank you I will! Do you remember if approx. what the food and drink min. was?
I am thinking about 175-200. I want a fun relaxed feel. Thank you!
That's the great thing about hosting your wedding there. You DO NOT have to use their caterer, or liqueur. They do have a great chef there named Jeremy, who will whip up whatever you want, in any price range (within reason of course). But if you go in house, be sure to start you planning early, they host lot's of special events there, so sometimes weddings can be put on the back burner. We ended up going with an outside caterer, and will be bringing in our own booze. So you can have complete control over what you want to pay. Pretty sweet, yes?
Thank you for all the help! I have some great ideas now. Good luck to all!
CONGRATULATIONS on your upcoming wedding!
