We'd like to have our ceremony at Cathedral Park- it's in North Portland (N Edison St & Pittsburg Ave), in the St. John's neighborhood. We'd like to have our reception somewhere besides the park though- we're looking for a reception location that's fairly close to the park (lots of people from out of the area, don't want them all getting lost!) I'd like it within a 10 minute drive. Any suggestions?
I don't know what size you need, and in St. John's there isn't too any that are big. I would look into the St. John's Pub (a McMenamins) or into the University of Portland. I am not sure of costs for either, but I know UP does weddings all the time and is pretty much a one stop shop for what you will need. You will need to contact the events office. (I went to school at UP and know the events person and he is amazing. I also had my wedding at a McMenamins and they did a great job!)
