Picking Your Wedding Venue and Making it a Destination!

  Where was your first date? A concert and picnic in the park, a walk along the beach, a wine-tasting trip or did you do a living room date via Skype or Zoom? No matter where you enjoyed your first date, it can be your wedding ceremony location with just a little thought and planning.


 This is your day! Where you choose to hold your ceremony is important. A few ideas-

  •     Backyard (yours, a family member's, or a friend’s)
  •     Beach
  •     City, County, or State Park
  •     Lakeside
  •     Vineyard
  •     Ballroom
  •     Hotel Suite
  •     Your Living Room
  •     Public or Private Garden

    (Some of these locations may charge a separate fee for use of the area.)

 Oregon is full of beautiful and scenic locations just waiting for you to discover. In Oregon, we have many Beaches, lots of Waterfalls, Vineyards, Forests, a Volcano Caldera, the High Desert, and tons of natural beauty. Destination ceremonies do not need to be held on volcanic islands or located outside the United States. What makes a wedding, elopement, or vow renewal special is the plans you make with the one you love to create a one-of-a-kind memory of your special day.
