  • This venue is incredible. The people Who work here are incredible, and the space is beautiful. They include the tables and chairs which saves you a ton of money, and paying for any kind of draping helps bring the room to life. Not to mention the amazing lounge room is perfect for getting ready photos! What an incredible space for an amazing price! Highly recommend also heading to fields park nearby for photos!! Only about a 3 min drive!

  • Castaway was the first venue we toured when looking for wedding venues, and it was love at first sight. We loved the openness and the ability to make the space our own and the large windows that let in lots of natural light. The back patio was the cherry on top as we were looking for an indoor/outdoor venue. We worked with Paige as we were planning our wedding, and she made wedding planning easy for us. At our first meeting, she was able to whip up a floor plan as we were talking and even altered it several times for us leading up to the wedding. She was such a pleasure and joy to work with and made the day seamless. The best part of Castaway - the outdoor space was the perfect place to surprise our guests with the Wedding Llamas! The blue wall is the perfect backdrop and we couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding at Castaway.

  • Castaway was a beautiful venue and the perfect space for our wedding. They were really helpful putting together our floorplan and helping us coordinate the flip from ceremony to reception. We used a tent on the patio since it was cold weather, which was a great space for our guests to use. All of our vendors were able to easily use the room and make it feel like a unique space for our wedding. Paige and her team were friendly, easy to work with, and super accommodating. We loved having our wedding at Castaway!

  • I recently had my wedding at Castaway and I can't recommend it enough. The venue is such a convenient location and has the option to rent parking spaces at a nearby lot if you think your guests need it. Their list of recommended vendors was great, I ended up using a caterer and photographer off their list. The flow of the wedding was PERFECT. There was no awkward pile up getting in/out of the ceremony or cocktail hour, and we had 225 guests. We ended up tenting the courtyard due to weather, and even though it ended up not raining, I think the tent really added to the cocktail hour and made it cozy. We even got lights to hang around the edge. Overall, it was as perfect night and a perfect location and I can't wait to get all the pictures back to relive it!

  • We booked Castaway while living abroad and Emily did a fantastic job painting a picture for us over FaceTime. Our experience was everything you would want from a venue; organized, attention to detail, and great communication. We had our rehearsal dinner at Blockhouse and would highly recommend doing the same. Being able to work with Emily on both spaces made this incredibly easy and we wouldn't change one thing!

  • We picked the Castaway for our venue, and used Blockhouse and Pomarius nursery for our ceremony and cocktail hour. It was the perfect blend of botanical and NW industrial, which is just what we were looking for. The staff at Castaway are friendly, professional and highly communicative. We really enjoyed working with them over the last year and would highly recommend this venue to anyone!

  • In scouting venues, Castaway was our top choice based on what we saw online in photos, and when we saw it in person, we knew it would be the perfect setting for our wedding. We were flexible on the date and took our 2nd choice date in order to book the venue. The space has a ton of character with the paned windows, exposed beams, and string lights. Because we wanted a simple, romantic look, the additional décor that we needed to bring in was minimal. The space was a great size for our group, which ended up being just around 100 – we were able to have both the ceremony and reception setup in advance so that there was no need to flip the space and our guests were able to immediately move from one side of the room to the other for our cocktail hour. They have a preferred caterer list that you will need to choose from, otherwise you would have to pay an outside catering fee. They can recommend which caterers on the list may work based on your budget. The green room was a good size a... Read more

  • We fell in love with Castaway the second we walked in if that gives you any idea of how beautiful of a venue it is. Not only is the venue beautiful but all of the added value they provide was amazing; 200 chair, lights, welcome table, tons of dining table options, etc., I could go on and on. Once we booked them we received a Welcome Email with a lot of information that was so helpful to have during our planning. Paige & the Castaway Team answered my millions of questions throughout the planning stage and was always happy to recommend her ideas or advice which was very helpful as a couple who had no idea what they were doing. The day of the wedding went FLAWLESSLY and throughout the whole day Paige was checking in on me, making sure I was comfortable and if there was anything she could do to help. I can't say enough good things about the venue itself and the Castaway Team and would 100% recommend Castaway as somewhere to get married in Portland, heck, even Oregon as a whole. Thank...

  • Castaway, and our venue coordinator, Emily Moore, were absolutely perfect. We knew immediately that this was the perfect venue for us. Emily was a joy to work with and immensely helpful when we ran into trouble with one of our vendors. She went above and beyond her job description and we could not be more thankful. She was quick to respond to emails, helpful answering questions, and we really enjoyed getting to know her during the planning process. The location and space itself are amazing and beautiful. We had our ceremony/cocktail hour in the outdoor courtyard and reception indoors. It really needs minimal decoration to stand out, but works well as a blank slate too. Even in mid-July, our guests were comfortable - they even complimented the AC after several hours of dancing. Castaway was a dream and a huge part of why our wedding was such a blast. Absolutely recommend!

  • We are so happy that we picked Castaway for our wedding ceremony and reception. The space is open and adjustable so you can really make it your own. Plus the location is awesome - our guests could walk from their hotels to the venue. The Castaway staff were great and made the entire process really smooth, easy and low stress.

  • We could not have chosen a more perfect venue for our wedding. We loved working with Emily, and the space is just incredible. We had our ceremony inside, and then our coordinator and caterers flipped it into an amazing reception space while our guests enjoyed cocktail hour inside as well. I just happened to be 98 degrees in Portland that day, but the space stayed cool and comfortable. Overall it was just amazing and we are so glad we used it!

  • My husband and I got married at Castaway in August 2019. It is an amazing venue that is so beautiful we barely had to decorate it! Paige, our venue coordinator, was very flexible and met with us as many times as we needed to make sure all of the details were ironed out before the big day. There was a scheduling overlap with another wedding at Block House so we couldn’t take photos in the nursery at the time we wanted to originally, but Castaway was very helpful in making sure our timeline would work out and we could still take pictures there- one of the reasons I chose the venue! The nursery is gorgeous, but it is a separate business and you have to get permission to take photos there as well as pay a fee. That’s the only thing I wish I would have known more about beforehand! The Castaway staff was very helpful the day of the wedding. Everything was so beautiful and we had an amazing day! Our guests loved the venue. So happy we chose Castaway for the best day of our lives!

  • We had a fantastic experience at Castaway for our October 2017 wedding. The venue is amazing and incredibly flexible, so you have the opportunity to do whatever you want with the space. We toured multiple venues in the Portland metro area and chose Castaway based on its size, location, and the opportunity to have both an indoor/outdoor experience. You have some unique options when you book the venue, including renting the adjacent nursery for cocktail hour (bonus: tent is already there and included in rental price!) which is a great option given how unpredictable weather is in Portland. Huge windows, allowing for really pretty portraits, and a large "getting ready space" is included in the rental rate. My only gripes are that it's fairly pricey compared to other venues we toured, and the requirement to choose from a pre-selected list of caterers further limits your ability to be flexible with budget allocated towards venue/food (though the options are all great and reputable names).

  • I cannot say anything negative about working with Castaway. Emily was so sweet from the beginning and the planning process was very straight forward. This venue is truly a blank canvas and allowed for us to really personalize and style our wedding exactly how we want it. We are so grateful that it worked out for us to book with them (particularly because it was peak season). I was worried about our guests being hot since it was July but they have umbrellas outside and A/C. It was very comfortable. If you are have more of a modern style, this is the place to go. :)

  • We loved having our wedding at Castaway. We were lucky to get a Saturday in June and from the day we went to check it out to the day we got married, the Castaway team was wonderful. Emily was always quick to respond and helped us as we needed it. We ended up going off the preferred list of caterers which we were nervous about, but other than paying an outside caterer fee, there were no problems at all! The venue is beautiful and the room to get ready in made the day so easy. Myself and my bridesmaids all got ready there, and it served as a low key place for the whole bridal party after pictures before the ceremony. They do have an outdoor space you can either have as a parking lot or where you can have your ceremony as well as open during the reception. We decided to do everything indoors because of weather as well as we wanted parking for our families. Our guests still used the balcony on the side of the building which was nice for people to get outside for a little but but... Read more
