  • Hats off to Fathia Harrak and the World Trade Center staff and crew for a fantastic wedding reception. From planning to the big night, Fathia was a gem to work with. She was accommodating and fun, but most importantly she was responsive to our emails and concerns, replying within the day. Nor can we say enough good things about the chef and kitchen staff. Our tasting for the reception dinner was an elaborate event itself. The dinner service at the reception was fast, efficient and the food was delicious and hot. Our experience with everyone at the World Trade Center was amazing start to finish.

  • This venue was me and my husband’s dream location! It’s modern and elegant! It was wonderful to have the ceremony & reception in the same building! The view was breathtaking. Elise was easy to chat with and the entire staff was very helpful and accommodating! There were a couple hiccups with communication between my coordinator and Elise that I had to correct but overall everything worked out! My wedding day was absolutely perfect! Everything we could’ve hoped for from a venue! Also, the food was AMAZING!! Thank you to all the staff who helped on our wedding day!

  • We had both our ceremony and reception at the World Trade Center. Marcelene, the onsite event coordinator, was an absolute delight to work with. She has decades of experience in the wedding industry and has a lot of wonderful ideas and tips to share. She was very careful to let our dreams shine, and only offer advice if she was asked. Mike, the catering manager, has been there for 15(ish) years and knows the ins and outs of the entire site. The bridal party and our families were very impressed with Mike and his team both the night of our wedding as well as through the coordination process. Lorne is the banquet manager and is an absolute dream. We had a couple day-of changes that he helped us work though without causing additional stress or concern to anyone involved. He was always a step ahead of us too; he has been at the WTC for 17(ish) years and has done MANY events onsite. PROS: Food: AMAZING. Everyone loved it. Our choices: Cali Cut Loin, Jamaican Jerk Pork and Cedar Plank sa... Read more

  • My husband and I cannot say enough positive things about working with the World Trade Center in Portland. Our wedding was absolutely perfect - the staff and planners took care of every detail so we had a stress-free wedding day. Even now, months later, our guests still tell us how fantastic the food was - we originally had planned on doing an hors d'oeuvres reception, but decided a couple weeks out to go with a buffet. It was delicious! We worked with Carrie during our planning process, and Lorne and Mike the day of - absolutely wonderful!

  • This venue was beautiful, and the perfect setting for our wedding this last weekend. Carrie was phenomenal to work with and was so accommodating and quick with her replies to my countless requests/emails/demands. I definitely would suggest this venue for any wedding or party.

  • I had my wedding here on July 6, 2013. Everything went perfectly! Since this venue provides the food, we decided to do the different stations with 4 different types of cuisine. Our guests LOVED it. When we came in for the tasting, we were blown away by pretty much all the food we sampled. We had a very special request because my husband is Cuban we wanted one of the stations to have Cuban food. They were so easygoing about it and asked us to provide recipes and made an entire station based off of food we picked out that they don't normally make! It came out great and was a great surprise for the Cuban side of the family. We also wanted a signature drink that incorporated both our wedding colors (aqua and red) and the bartender was able to do this, no problem. As far as the venue goes, you really don't need to do a lot of decorating on your own for it to look good. It really is impressive on it's own, especially at night with the lights. It also offers really pretty chairs which is d... Read more

  • We worked with Danya at the World Trade Center, and she was phenomenal. Always quick to respond, she answered all of our questions throughout the planning of our wedding. Then on the day of, the catering staff was wonderful and always helpful. Everything ran on time, and the food was fantastic. Plus, the venue is beautiful. We loved having our ceremony and cocktail hour in the plaza. We had plenty of space and the staff ensured no strangers wandered through. Plus, it was not at all noisy, considering we were right in the middle of downtown during Blues Fest. And having our reception upstairs was absolutely perfect. The layout of the sky bridge terrace worked great, and we loved the twinkle lights and river views. It was the perfect night!

  • The venue was beautiful! The food was incredible! Our guests kept on commenting on how amazing the food was! The staff were all great to work with and friendly! Timely feedback when planning! Awesome view! Our only problem was that 4 of the poles of lights weren't working and the staff couldn't figure it out.

  • Where do I even begin? First we had to work with three different event coordinators. They kept switching it up on us and each time we had to explain everything all over. Their communication is horrible. The current event coordinator is no longer present on weekend events so the information that was once explained to her is now relayed to a event manager that was never present at any of the meetings or attached in any of the email communications. So he ends up asking the our day of family wedding coordinator. Everything was just so confusing and was not efficient. Next they tend to stretch the truths about certain things. We had our wedding in the beginning of October. They told us that the heaters and fans will be accessible. When we got up to the bridge for our reception it was freezing. When asked if we could turn the heat on, they said it would cost an extra $300 to get the engineer back to turn it on! Really?! But supposedly they said someone told them to turn it off and it was...

  • We had our reception at the World Trade Center Portland and it was absolutely gorgeous. It was lovely how the wedding started in early evening and the room was light and bright then transformed as the sun went down and you could see all the white lights and the view of the river. We were lucky and our wedding was on the first night of the Rose Festival so we got the best view of the fireworks show in the city! The service was top notch. Every server congratulated my husband and I and asked if we were happy and if they could get us anything. The food was delicious! The only downside is that they had large heat lamps on to keep the venue warm but one was directly over the dance floor and was so very hot! We asked for it to be turned down or off but because it was set on a timer it could not be done. If you book make sure this is addressed!

  • I loved the venue for the ambiance. It was a gorgeous place even during the winter. It's partially outdoors but felt warm since there were heat lamps. The down side with the venue was the fact that there were a lot of communication issues and the food was mediocre. I guess you get what you pay for :/ I'm honestly not sure if I would recommend this vendor. There are very few venues in the portland area that I liked and had a reasonable price per head.
