Weddings & Rentals
Let all thy joys be as the month of May, and all thy days be as a marriage day. -- Francis Quarles
Weddings come in all shapes and sizes. They can be elaborate or simple, classic or modern. But we all want them to be memorable.
The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District offers several unique and beautiful venues for weddings in the Portland area.
Few wedding sites in Oregon can match the lush splendor at Jenkins Estate, a revitalized 68-acre country estate located in a wooded niche atop Cooper Mountain. Lush gardens and views of the Tualatin Valley provide a truly stunning backdrop.
If you're looking for an outdoor ceremony in a wooded setting, the “Tea House” is the perfect spot for up to 150 guests. The bride walks over a bridge and scenic pond area to make her grand entrance.
For a more intimate ceremony with up to 100 guests, consider Belle's Haven. This location is surrounded by beautiful flowers and trees, providing the perfect backdrop.
The expansive Meadow can accommodate up to 225 guests. It is surrounded by green trees, blooming bushes and colorful flowers.
For the reception, guests can choose the historic Main House or Stable. The Main House is patterned after a hunting lodge built for the English royal family. It has a full-length veranda porch, beamed ceilings, stone and brick fireplaces, solid maple floors and ornate light fixtures. Guests will enjoy the beautiful views from this building and the outdoor dancing area. Accommodates up to 175 guests in the summer.
The Stable, a handsomely renovated horse barn, is a two-story building featuring original fir tongue-and-groove boards. Guests are seated in stalls downstairs. Upstairs are a great wood dance floor and stage area. An outdoor patio provides additional guest seating. Accommodates up to 225 guests in the summer.
