  • The Empress Estate is a beautiful venue. We toured the facilities in March 2019 for our December 2020 wedding. Ultimately, we decided on a venue closer to Portland but agreed that the space is wonderful and the staff is top notch. Definitely tour this place and consider it for your wedding. We both agreed it would be PERFECT for an outdoor space, though the new lodge indoor space is also gorgeous.

  • My husband and I got married here in September and we had nothing but a positive experience! The owner was very kind, our coordinator was always on top of things and when we forgot to include a small dance in our plan, she was able to coordinate with the DJ for us right away and everything went smoothly! The food here is AMAZING, they weren't kidding when they told us they take pride in their food --- and our guests even got to meet the chef! We did the all-inclusive package so after the reception, my husband, myself and the wedding party got to stay at the location and the staff brought out midnight snacks for us to eat by the fireplace. We had such an amazing day and couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Empress Estate and the staff for helping us create such a magical moment!

  • One of the primary reasons we chose this venue is that it is practically all inclusive. The wedding coordinators that they have on staff have been super helpful and very responsive! The grounds are absolutely stunning and we are so excited to be getting married here.

  • Our day was absolutely perfect! Stevie, Zoe and their crew attended to our every need through everything. Stevie even went out of her way to fill a last minute special request for sparkling cider because she didn't know that we don't drink alcohol. Zoe was very helpful with our unprepared photographer. He gave him many ideas for our night time photos at the mansion. The food was amazing and our guests are still raving about it. Everything was absolutely perfect from the flowers to the little details on the tables. I have never felt more like a princess than i did that day. Thank you for making our vision come to life and being there for all of our little needs.

  • Oh my goodness. I am still in disbelief over how absolutely perfect my wedding day was. I can truly say that this day was the BEST day of my life, and a huge part of that is due to the excellent team at the Empress. The planning process with Ambree and Nichole was fabulous, easy and fun. Zoe, the owner was fantastic and eager to please. The Empress mansion is incredible and breath taking, and has hundreds of amazing photo opportunities, just calling your name! My now husband, Scott and I had our reception at the newer building, the Woodland Chateau. Wow. Just wow. The space is absolutely gorgeous. We didn't feel the need to bring in much decor at all. Natural lighting just flooded the space and allowed for some amazing photographs. The venue's grounds are breath taking as well. It is high up on a hill so you will be able to see the river in the distance and the town down below. Awesome selfie opportunities just everywhere ;) Back to the day of the wedding. Nichole is ...

  • The Empress Estate has been a great experience. Everyone was complimenting on how great the venue designed looked. From Amber, Stephanie, Nichole and Zoe, each and every person who assisted was good. Service was very good. Zoe and his team went out of their way to make things easier. I personally used outside vendors for tableware and linens as they did not have what I needed, not their fault, I'm just a picky bride. Overwhelming for sure! So much planning and so much doing. I recommend The Empress Estate.

    Ariella, Thank you so much for the review! You were such a wonderful couple to work with and your wedding turned out so beautiful! It was such an honor that you chose The Empress to host your big day. It will be a wedding that we remember forever! Congratulations!

  • The Empress Estate is a lovely venue! We fell in love with the location within seconds of driving up for the first time. We toured the venue in the summer of 2018 and knew this was the spot we wanted to celebrate our special day. Thankfully our date was available. Planning for our day was very simple and wasn’t stressful what so ever. The Empress has a variety of wedding packages and they coordinate a few planning sessions to make everything flow and come together with ease. During the year of planning we did have a transition between a few event specialists but nothing got lost during the transition in staff. Our wedding was in July 2019! We used three areas within the venue. The ceremony was held outside in a lovely forest terrace, we used the Woodland Chateau for dinner, toasts, etc. and then moved down to the Empress for dancing! We were one of the Empress’ first same sex marriages as well and all of the staff made everyone feel welcomed! Zoe even agreed to switch out t... Read more

  • I fell in love with this venue when I first came to visit. I live in the Seattle area, so it was a bit of a drive for me and many of my friends/family, but it was TOTALLY worth it! My wedding went flawlessly, and everything was just so easy. The coordinator kept everything moving along, and we smoothly transitioned from ceremony, to cocktail hour, on to the reception. Everyone gets a little worried and flustered on their big day, but my coordinator and staff made everything go so beautifully! The venue itself is gorgeous. I got lucky and had a beautiful, sunny day for my wedding (despite it being the second to last weekend in September), so we were able to have the ceremony outside in front of the Empress, and cocktail hour by the fireside. Everyone kept raving about how beautiful everything was, literally every guest was blown away, and asked how we found it, and everyone keeps complimenting us and telling us what a great time they had! I can't speak too much about the food, I w... Read more

It was our pleasure to have you and your guests here to celebrate your wedding!

  • This place is the most beautiful of you are looking for that fairytale wedding. Everyone raved about how beautiful the venue was. The quality of the food day of exceeded my expectations as well! I had a few issues with getting email responses about a couple months before the event, but in the end everything was perfect and exactly how I wanted it! And the day of coordinator Stephanie was super flexible about making sure we got exactly what we wanted! This place is worth the price!

  • Wonderful experience with The Empress Estate!! Everything turned out perfect and exactly as planned for our wedding in April 2019. Our cake was fantastic (highly recommend the Earl Grey Spiced with Lavendar and the Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese filling!!!), the food was a HIT and the set up was perfect. I was initially a little worried with the spacing and table set up during our planning session/email correspondence, but it all worked out day of and the staff made every effort they could to ensure everything went smoothly and set everything up with my wishes in mind. Long story short - based on the mock-ups, I was nervous that we weren't going to have enough dance floor space with the amount of tables and our 6-piece band (usually, weddings booked here use a DJ service..) but we did and it was AWESOME!! The grounds are so beautiful, you truly do not need much decoration. However, they allowed us to bring flower petals for the reception tables and our own small pre-made floral arra... Read more
