  • McMenamins Grand Lodge was such a wonderful place to have our wedding. Our wedding had a small amount of guests and with being able to have the venue, catering, and drinks be taken care of in one place it definitely lifted a stress off our shoulders. Both my Husband and I love McMenamins and were glad we got to spend our special day here. The Staff was fantastic, answering our questions right away, and on the day of wedding helping us with giving us a break down of everything and helping us when guests may have been a bit unruly. They were a fantastic place. The only thing my husband and I are sad about, is not having it outside in the small enclosure of trees, but having it inside the Children's cottage was just as beautiful. I highly recommend, especially if you want a venue that is all-in-one, where you have the venue, and catering taken care of right in one place.

  • Armando was awesome, he went out of his way to make sure everything was exactly how we pictured it. The menu and bar options were super flexible and they worked with our budget. We stayed two nights at the lodge and they made sure our rooms were near the venue space and gave us some souvenirs at check in. The rooms were small but made up for it with large bathrooms and closets. I'm so happy with how everything turned out!

  • Sydney and her event team were amazing! They were so attentive and accomidating through the whole planning process and were quick to lend us assistance when things went wrong with our sound system during the reception. Mcmenamins Grand Lodge was the perfect choice, nothing but positive comments from our guest about the food and space. Thank you so much for making our special day perfect.

  • On the day of our wedding it started to pour down rain 30 minutes before we were supposed to start. We had already cancelled the weather pending canopy because rain was not supposed to happen. The staff at Mcmenamins Grand Lodge acted very quickly and gave me many options to deal with the rain. They were able to put up pop up canopies and move the ceremony underneath cover and changed all the linens. They did all of this very quickly and provided a wonderful place for us to do our ceremony.

    Hayden, Thank you for choosing us to be the backdrop to your special day! Oh, Oregon weather... We are glad that the rain did not hinder the spirit of you or your guests. Best wishes to you and Michelle! Sydney McMurry, Sales Manager McMenamins Grand Lodge

  • We decided to go with McMenamins not only because is it a PNW staple but also because of how seamless the process is with them. McMenamins knows how to put in a wedding. They take care of all the details such from chairs and silverware to food and beverages. If you are a person that doesn’t want to deal with a ton of vendors and just wants a beautiful set up with no fuss look no further than McMenamins Grand Lodge. We got married in Catchings Grove and the reception was on the Iron Works Patio. The foliage is so beautiful you don’t need any additional decorations for your wedding. The patio is comfortable and has beautiful lights strung along a wooden panels that cover the patio. I would recommend McMenamins Grand Lodge to anyone getting married in Oregon!

    Lara, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for us! Our gardening team works extra hard to be sure the event spaces are green and luscious. It was a pleasure to work with you and assist in making your vision a reality. Best wishes to you and your new husband! Sydney McMurry, Sales Manager McMenamins Grand Lodge

  • The event coordination staff was very professional and quick to communicate every detail of our ceremony and reception. The venue was very beautiful and the service was excellent! When shopping around for a venue we found the Grande Lodge's prices could not be matched. Our stay in the wedding suite was wonderful as well and the food during our entire stay was great!

  • You only get one day, make sure your venue understands this. Mcmenamines is not known for service, therefore we discussed this many times before signing out contract. For 120 people, they gave us one bartender and one person on the buffet and clearing tables. They also had 3 other weddings going that night. They put the wrong beers on tap, the setup was wrong, they forgot to put out our gold chargers, they didn't reset between ceremony and reception, the food buffet sat empty even though there was a ton of food left over, and the contract that they tried to show us was not our signed contract. The one thing that I can say is that the front lawn was beautiful, and the BBQ was delicious. They paid heavily for being in breach of contract, so hopefully they have learned their lesson. For us it was worth having an outdoor location that people could spend the night. I would not do another event there.

  • We chose to have our wedding in the Children's Cottage and used both the upstairs and downstairs bars. Our event coordinator was Marcy and she was extremely helpful and personable. The entire process was very smooth and simple. This venue was a great value as McMenamins provides everything from the tables, chairs and linens to the catering. The food was amazing and the staff was very professional. Many of guests are still commenting on this being the most fun they have had at a wedding and I attribute much of that to having such a great venue. My only complaint is that we were not notified that McMenamins was throwing a large event that same day (their event was actual scheduled after we had already booked our wedding) and there was not on-site parking available for several of my guests. This would not have been a deal breaker, but we would have liked to know in advance.

  • We really enjoyed our wedding at the Grand Lodge. That being said, there were several things that could have been better. The coordinator I worked with was great about replying to emails and returning calls, until about a month out from the wedding, then she became hard to get a hold of. Day of, we were told that we would have access to the Cottage at 12:30 to start setting up, but we didn't get in to the building until just before 1, even after calling the front desk twice, which put us behind our very tight schedule. The caterer was mia according to the front desk, and had misplaced our rented linens. There was an issue with a lack of silverware and mugs as well. The biggest concern was the bartender; he was hosting everything, when we were only hosting beer and wine. Thankfully, we were able to catch this early on in the evening and it was corrected. For all the problems we had, everything ultimately turned out well.

  • PLANNING YOUR EVENT: Marcy and Perla were very helpful and were there to answer all our questions and had several great ideas on planning the wedding. They took the time to make sure it was the wedding we both wanted. FUNCTION ROOM/MEETING SPACE: Both rooms were really beautiful and very clean. SERVICE DURING THE EVENT: The catering staff was very helpful and made sure to be there and take care of anything we needed. They were always ready to help but never in the way. FOOD & BEVERAGE: The food was good overall. The BBQ chicken and green beans were the best. The steak was flavorful but the temperature was inconsistent. Some were medium, some were medium rare, a couple were closer to rare. The biscuits were a big hit. People were too full to get to the dessert, but the people who did liked it. ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: It was a great wedding. People loved the food and location. My bride Liry and I were so happy with the wedding. It was perfect. I know everyone that helped put in... Read more
