If you’re looking for a venue that offers a dramatic scenery, warm lighting and colorful backdrops, consider renting out a ballroom. They often come with their own unique chandelier-esque lighting and built in ambiance so the decorating is minimal! Add to the warmth with candles, rich table linens and you are set! Ballroom weddings are perfect for an indoor or winter wedding where you don’t want to worry about the weather but still desire a beautiful space to tie the knot. Feel free to browse our galleries of ballroom weddings and get inspired!
Derrick & Lauren
Derrick and Lauren are incredibly busy med students and resident physicians so when it came to planning their Sentinel Hotel wedding, they did what every busy couple should absolutely do (and in this order)…book their dream venue, find a photographer they love and hire a stellar team to make it all happen.
We loved everything from Michael and Meredith’s enthusiasm for the day to the unique details that made up their day to their first dance song, which was a Bob Marley classic performed by two of their close friends.
First Presbyterian Church; Castaway, Portland
Erica and Rohan exchanged vows at the romantic and colorfully rich First Presbyterian church in downtown Portland. After which, the celebration moved to Castaway, where the newlyweds switched into traditional Sri Lankan wedding attire.
Planning a wedding is no easy feat as is and planning a Portland wedding while living in New York makes the task even harder. Luckily, Hobin and Ella hired an amazing local wedding planner, Molli Barss of Soiree and the pieces of their Elysian Ballroom wedding came together perfectly.
Benson Hotel Wedding
Josh and Liz are people of passion, love, and commitment. They are devoted to each other and their families. But above all, they love two things the most: running and each other. How these two marathon running go getters found each other is a pretty cute story.
Hotel Monaco and Grace Memorial Episcopal Church Wedding
Allison and Shane held their wedding ceremony in a beautiful old church in North Portland. One of our favorite moments was being able to capture Allison having a quiet moment with her dad before walking down the aisle. He was an emotional father and when he saw Allison in her dress, he fondly credited Allison’s mom for raising his beautiful daughter.
