This venue is breathtakingly beautiful and huge!!!! I think we changed our mind about our ceremony site 3 times because there were so many beautiful options!! Jude was always an absolute pleasure to work with and so accommodating, especially as we were from out of state and were only able to visit twice before the wedding. We feel so blessed to have gotten to get married in such a beautiful place and highly recommend it to anyone! Plus we got a great workout from walking up and down those stairs ;-)

My wedding for this venue was in July 2014. When I first starts looking into this venue I started to read poor reviews on the coordinator named Jude. I hesitated to listen and made the decision of lookin at the venue with my husband and meeting her myself. The venue was amazing and we fell in love instantly and set a date and had our deposit down the same day. Jude seemed nice and knew everything she was talking about at first. The second time we met up she gave us list of vendors to use which was helpful. Then we went on with emails that she was horrible at getting back to. My wedding was 4 months away and I would take her about 4 weeks before a response or I would have to re-email her again. Living in Portland I couldn't just drive there easily. The third time I met her I showed her how I wanted tables to look and she told me how all my table ideas are not ideal and that I should change it. Then she went on about my decorations and that some things I wouldn't be able to use. She would ask me what I would like to do just to change my idea. What was the point in asking me? The last time I saw we was the 4th visit. By this time I was completely discourage and upset because everything she wanted to change and was so negative. The day of the rehearsal she would ask me where I would like things to go just to say it can't go there! I was complexity embarrassed for myself and my husband with her being so rude and bossy. Oh did I forget to mention the awkwar moment with my catering company and her vein negative to them as we'll! The day of my wedding I did not see Jude at all but got many complaints from my parents about how rude she was with her tone and telling people what to do. I saw the security one time and it was a lady I met at my dessert table. I asked her who she was and introduced myself because she was eating the cake. I had a small wedding so I knew everyone. Come to fine out my "security" was this lady eating my cake not helping out, or so it looked like.

My husband and I fell in love with the venue and knew right away we wanted to wed here. It is beautiful. The coordinator at first seemed very great and helpful at getting everything together. She is very forgetful, seems to mix weddings together, and isn't the nicest when something goes wrong. We were promised a time Til 11 and our tables were being rushed and cleared at 1030. Our alcohol vender was suppose to provide a square to charge for drinks and Jude didn't bring it and said it was due to my lack of waiting Til the last minute. (3 weeks prior doesn't seem last minute to me). She also says things that didn't happen. Our security guards were HORRIBLE. they arrive a hour before anyone else does. I was told they would be roaming the property and they stood behind the bar the whole night when they were suppose to help out "as needed". Than I received my refund check (after I has to ask a month after we should have gotten it) and was told that we still owed $20 to security from that night. Even tho my husband paid security directly and they told him it was enough. Jude was not present at this time and claims she told us we still owed them.

The property is great, but Jude is horrible to work with. It's a shame because the property is so beautiful and she made it not the best time.

I absolutely loved this outdoor venue - it was gorgeous. The lawns and flowers were very well taken care of, and so many of our vendors and guests commented on how beautiful it was.

The tables and chairs, as well as some decor items are included. But it gets really dark at night, so you'll probably want to rent a light for the parking area and back by the bathrooms (which are portable toilets). Also, there was a large bee's nest right by our ceremony site, and the owner refused to do anything about it, so we had to come in the night before and take it down ourselves. However, the site coordinator, Jude is very detail oriented and on top of everything - she's done weddings for years and will help make your day perfect.

Abiqua is a beautiful setting! It was just gorgeous. My only complaints are that the responsiveness could definitely be improved, and that we were promised the use of a golf cart to shuttle elderly guests around and it was not provided as promised. Little things, but still worth considering.

The pictures don't do this place justice. The site is amazing and what girl doesn't dream of getting married on a beautiful island surrounded by thousands of flowers and trees. The owner of the grounds does an amazing job preparing them for wedding season. Make sure to visit in the summer to truly get the feel for the place.
They provide chairs and tables which is one less thing to worry about.
