The Best Micro Wedding Venues in Oregon

We’ll be the first to say that we were absolutely blown away by the number of amazing micro wedding venues in Oregon. But in reality, we shouldn’t have been because this one state genuinely offers it all.

From trendy and eclectic city venues to dreamy forest settings, and everything in between. If you’re considering holding your micro wedding in Oregon, you’ll have plenty of options. As always, we keep an eye out for venues that specifically cater to micro weddings, but you’ll spot a few more ‘traditional’ ones here that we couldn’t leave off the list.

Union Pine

Union Pine describes themselves as “A social space designed to cultivate and inspire community and culture”. And that’s exactly what this Portland venue does. They have two different venues within the building, along with an open catering policy, and a la carte services. This flexibility allows couples to execute their own vision, while building off of the trendy and modern vibes that already exist.

Just browsing through their extensive blog gives you an idea of the range that can be achieved in this one venue. If the idea of building your event from scratch stresses you out, then don’t worry, Union Pine also offers an extensive list of vetted vendors, caterers, photographers, and more. They also provide ‘layout inspiration’ and a wide variety of unique in house furniture. Your guests will be impressed by ‘your’ creativity and there’s no doubt you’ll pull off an event to remember.

Block House

Blockhouse is an intimate Portland venue tucked inside of Pomarius Nursery, which means that a big portion of your decor is already handled by the gorgeous greenery surrounding the area. This venue also has an open (and epic) chef-inspired kitchen, so it’s perfect for any foodies who want to highlight the meal they plan to serve.

Your rental fee includes a 12 hour use of the space, as well as chairs and glassware for up to 40 guests, custom wood tables and bistro tables, a 6ft wooden bar, as well as outdoor lounge furniture and bistro lighting on the patio. Aka – this is a great venue with natural beauty and classic touches that’ll help you save money as well.

Saint Irenes

Saint Irenes is a beautiful and intentionally designed venue, set in an industrial area. They work closely with their neighboring restaurant to provide incredible food that’s crafting in house from scratch at each event, and pride themselves in knowing how to throw a party. We were absolutely swooning over their sample menus, with everything from eggs Benedict to an epic selection of desserts.

The venue is divided into two rooms, the Venue Room and the High Dive Tasting Room, which and can be reserved separately or together depending on your guest count or vision. Their rental fee also includes tables, chairs, linens, candles, and service ware at no additional charge (score!).

Hood and Mt. Adams, and the East Hills. Ceremonies are held on the wedding lawn, with Mt. Hood serving as an epic as the backdrop.

Their micro wedding experience is short and sweet, but definitely not lacking in the experience or details. They essentially do all of the planning for you, and they also allow you to reduce your carbon footprint by sharing vendors and upcycling decor and supplies (which also saves you money).

The main ceremony site is set on a vista overlooking the sea, and looks to be taken straight out of a movie. They have several outdoor locations to choose from for a reception, and depending on the tide, you can choose to have a small, intimate ceremony on one of three private beaches.

It’s not easy to find a venue that gives you both beachfront views and tall, majestic trees and greenery at the same time, but Crook Point has the best of both worlds.

They also have 7 ocean front vacation rentals on private beaches along a mile of Pacific Ocean coastline to utilize for the wedding weekend or honeymoon. Guests are also able to rent the entire Burnt Hill Beach Cove (5 homes) for the weekend so that their loved ones can stay on the property and soak in the magic.

They’ve got a variety of venues to choose from, and we absolutely fell in love with the Silcox Hut, which is located a mile above the main lodge and boasts timber and stone construction, a cozy fireplace, and an epic setting on Mt. Hood. The bunk room sleeps 24 people, so you can really make it a party that lasts into the night.

Timerline Lodge really caters to the micro wedding, offering both their “Jubilation Wedding” (for up to 30 people) and “Elopements/Intimate Wedding” packages.
