You will not regret booking with Gray Gables. Samantha was our coordinator, and took care of EVERYTHING! They are true experts and made our planning process effortless. Gray Gables Estate was my dream wedding venue. The grounds are immaculately kept, and they offer both a bridal suite and a groom's room complete with a pool table and bluetooth speaker system. The property offers to many picturesque settings, like hidden gazebos, and a koi pond. Our photographers were amazed at the opportunities for photo backdrops, and all the guests were raving about what a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere it was. We had the opportunity to do a menu tasting with the chef, and we were totally blown away. This venue offers absolutely everything. I mean everything from a steamer in the bridal suite to custom requests for your special day. They have not overlooked a single detail and it shows. Our experience was absolutely perfect.

I cannot say enough good things about Gray Gables! Sam was our wedding coordinator (comes with booking with them) and she was AMAZING! Sam and all the staff made sure our wedding ran smoothing and perfectly! We even had to move from outside to inside due to the weather and that didn't phase Gray Gables! Beautiful location, wonderful staff, and great food! Can't go wrong here!

Having just had our daughter's wedding at Gray Gables, I can say that our decision to utilize this venue was absolutely the best choice. First, the venue is beautiful. Regal but with beautiful character. At first, I wasn't sure if I wanted to even go look at it because I was afraid of what it would probably cost. Once my daughter and I saw it, we fell in love and the pricing was more reasonable than I expected. I loved the fact that I had choices in regards to catering and I was not required to utilize specific vendors. In addition, I found that Gray Gables is so beautiful that I didn't need to go overboard on decorating...and in my opinion, it would have looked overdone if I didn't let the natural beauty of the venue show. I was thrilled with the flexibility and helpful service I received from Samantha. Most of the process was smooth, but the few "bumps" in the road we hit, Samantha handled with poise and grace and she helped me through all of it. I cannot recommend Samantha and Gray Gables enough. I was incredibly happy with everything and have no complaints.

I'm speechless! My wedding was absolutely PERFECT, MEMORABLE, AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, FANTASTIC!!!!!... All thanks to Jennifer Agard. She was so helpful, calming, organized, attentive, on-the-ball. She made my wedding FLAWLESS. I couldn't have been happier with the results. It was everything I wanted and more. The whole team working on my wedding was really great.. Jennifer, her assistant, bartenders, even the limo driver!! They really did me proud. I don't have a single complaint about anything! Everyone loved my wedding and told me how beautiful Gray Gables was and how nice and helpful all the people were. I went with all of Jennifer's vendor recommendations and it took the stress out of most of the planning and everything was better than I could have imagined. I am so glad that my husband and I got married there and I would highly recommend Gray Gables and Jennifer to anyone. I had an evening wedding and when the sun went down and all the lights turned on in the gardens it was a breathtaking. My wedding really turned out to be a heart-stopping dream come true.

Samantha was our wedding coordinator - she did an amazing job making sure the day went smoothly. The day of the wedding she took care of all the details so I didn't have to worry about a thing. Since we booked the venue she was always responsive to our calls and emails. She took great notes on what were expecting and help make sure that we stuck as close to the timeline as possible. They are very accommodating when it comes to bringing in outside vendors, which was a great option to have.
The venue as a whole was perfect! There was ample space for the bride and bridal party to get ready. The pool table in the grooms room was a great addition for the grooms men. In addition to that, there are so many areas within the venue to take pictures - especially at night, the lighting is breathtaking.

You are in great hands with Samantha and Jennifer.

We just had our wedding at Gray Gables and it was a wonderful day. All of my guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. You wouldn't think this gem could exist behind a U-Haul building, but it does! We got married on the front lawn (no street noise!) and had our reception on the side/back yard area.
Jennifer is a wonderful wedding coordinator. She answered all our questions and helped so much with planning, layout design and coordinating with other vendors.
Gray Gables also has partnerships with other great vendors in the area, which is an awesome way to learn about other vendors and save some money.
Great venue and I definitely recommend it to others!

Yes, the venue is gorgeous and offers the best of both indoor and outdoor locations, but Samantha and the rest of the Gray Gables Estate team are tops when it comes to responsiveness, thoroughness and attention to detail. I thought planning my wedding as an out-of-state bride was going to be a nightmare, but Samantha made it stress free and worked to meet our budget. Mezzaluna caterers did a fantastic job on food and service, and we received many compliments from guests. We opted for a one-entree buffet meal and served late-night snacks. As newlyweds, we chose to eat privately in the cozy dining room of the main house. Servers prepared our plates and brought them to us. It was a perfect time for us to relax and talk about the ceremony before heading back into the fray. I also decided on the day of the wedding to do the sparkler send off and Samantha's response, "no problem." It can't be said enough how great the Gray Gables planning team is to work with. Three months later, people are still telling us how much fun they had at our wedding.

We got married on September 1st at Gray Gables and could not be happier with our experiences with the venue and with Barb! We have heard from several of our friends and family that it was the best wedding they have ever been to! The venue and Barb are really to thank for this.

When we arrived at Gray Gables we were stunned at how naturally beautiful the venue was. It took our breath away. If you want to have an outdoor Oregon wedding we would highly recommend Gray Gables. When we arrived for our wedding, the grounds were absolutely perfect. The ceremony area can accommodate a large or small crowd and was perfect for our guests. The reception area is twenty feet from the ceremony and provides a seamless transition from ceremony to cocktail hour. Our guests were very pleased with how easy the layout of everything made things. Even though we were going to get married out of state we hadn't really thought of hiring a wedding planner. Barb Abalan was our wedding planner and day of coordinator. She was absolutely amazing to work with. Because we were planning from so far away, it was great to have Barb to help us take care of any issues that popped up. She is sweet, caring, and really thought of everything. We couldn't have imagined someone helping us as much as Barb helped us. She has done so many weddings and it shows in her preparation and attention to detail. Barb coordinated and worked with all of our venders on our behalf. It's impossible to have a perfect wedding but our experience at Gray Gables was about as close to perfect as one can be. The prices were very reasonable when compared to other places and the value was unmatched. We would have easily spent thousands of dollars more at other places just to get the benefits that were already included in our package at Gray Gables. Barb really helped us work within our budget and made the entire experience very stress free. We would highly recommend getting married at Gray Gables!!

My daughter was married at Gray Gables on July 20th. We were very pleased with the venue and especially pleased with Barbara (our wedding coordinator). The whole event went smoothly. There were no problems at all that we were aware of. Barbara kept things moving along at the correct pace and we had plenty of time for everything. The venue is beautiful and the service was great. I was impressed that so many things are included in the price. It took quite a bit of the stress off to know that I didn't have to plan everything. The food was great at the reception. When it was time to pack up our things, we found that Barbara had already done a lot of it and the left over food was packaged up and ready to take home. We didn't have to ask at all, it was done. I would recommend Gray Gables to anyone!
