Sitting on the banks of the historic Columbia River, the Portland Yacht Club makes the perfect venue for a sweet, nautical wedding. Founded in 1908 as a motor boat racing club, the venue boasts nostalgic decorations and stunning views of the North Portland Harbor and the Hayden and Tomahawk islands. The clubhouse possesses four venues within: a grand ballroom, dining room, terrace patio, and ceremony lawn. With capacities for up to 250 guests, Portland Yacht Club facilitates a flawless event, moving easily from ceremony, reception, and beyond. Choose the bank of the river as a beautiful backdrop as the wind whispers gently, or the grand ballroom with its vaulted ceilings and French-inspired windows dramatically framing the greenery in the distance. As for the reception, the dining room lends an elegant ambiance while the patio allows you and your guests to experience the beauty of the river and breathtaking sunset, in a sophisticated but laid-back setting. There’s nothing like a simple wedding on the banks of the river as the sun sets on Oregon’s oldest yacht club.
