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!

My daughter got married yesterday, 12/12/12, at Gray Gables Estate in Portland, OR.
The weeks an months preceding, have been hectic, and exhausting, as we try to iron out the details, and finish little wedding projects.
As crazy as everything has been, we got to Gray Gables, and all my anxiety, concerns, and panic disintegrated. The wedding planner, Barb, took over. I could be such a bug part of the wedding, and enjoy the ceremony, the food (excellent, by the way), and spend time visiting with guests. It really was a wonderful night, a night we'll always remember, and there is no place, that could be a more beautiful setting for a wedding. Even in December, the guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was, and how amazing the services, the venue, the whole environment was.
I would definitely recommend, to anyone, looking for a romantic, beautiful place to have a wedding go to Gray Gables. Meet with Barb, look at the grounds, some photographs of past weddings, and you'll know, you have found the perfect place to have a wedding! And, not only will it be an unforgettable night for you, but for everyone who attends as well.

My Husband and I recently got married on 12-12-12 at Gray Gables Estate, and we couldn't have been happier! When going to the estate for the first time, we were both absolutely amazed at how beautiful the venue was. It was clean, well maintained, and amazingly decorated. The venue isn't the only amazing thing though, Gray Gables also offers the most phenomenal service to help both the bride and groom as well as their family members feel comfortable and excited to host their special day at Gray Gables Estate. The wedding planners that are included with Gray Gables are their so that you and your family can leave the hassle of dealing with all the vendors and guests to them, and so that you can all enjoy your special day. It means a lot that your parents can actually enjoy your ceremony too instead of running around stressing out. And that's what Gray Gables gives you. Their team of highly trained wedding planners and advisers help to make your wedding a stress free day. We worked with Barb, and she was simply phenomenal. She contacted vendors with specific details, got everything in order, and even worked with us up until the day of the wedding with guest count changes and what we needed to bring and do. During the ceremony she made sure that my Husband and I were enjoying ourselves, and more importantly, she made sure that we got to eat too! She timed the event perfectly and makes sure that everyone is where they need to be, so that you don't have to worry. Gray Gables was completely lit up with twinkle lights all over the estate making for a magical evening. All of the guests were amazed at the beauty of the venue, and we continue to get compliments about the beauty and magical feeling that the venue provided. My mother was so very excited to be able to enjoy the wedding without having to worry about everything, and my Husband and I couldn't have been more excited and happy to have been married at this Estate.

I was married at Gray Gables Estate on May 27. To sum up the experience in just one word would never do. This place is amazing! I was planning my wedding from accross the country and could never have planned a successful wedding and reception without Genevieve, my incredible coordinator and Barb too of course who answered all of my questions and kept me from losing my mind. Thank you so much for all of your help you two!! You are wonderful and amazing women and you made my wedding day the wedding I have always dreamed of. The grounds are gorgeous! The reception hall and alter were beautiful and I was allowed to make it my own. My guests had a great time and we did too. You took the stress from us completely and we were able to just enjoy our day with our family and friends. Genevieve also managed to get pink lipstick out of the bottom of my wedding gown (the tulle). I was freaking out but her calm and reassuring words helped me to relax. I could never say thank you enough and I will always remember my wedding day with nothing but happiness and joy. If you are looking for the perfect place to get married, get married here!

Barb at the Gray Gables was amazing! She took care of everything and the day just went by without a hitch. I'm so grateful for her caring kind attitude. By the end of the experience it was like she was a part of the family. The venue is beautiful and very well kept. Food is fantastic! Everything was amazing! If you can upgrade I'd definitely recommend doing it. Less headaches and so much more time to enjoy the day!

Gray Gables is the best place for a wedding. Genevieve is the best coordinator anyone could ask for. It seems a bit expensive at first but when you go look at other venues and realize everything else you will have to add and/or do yourself it is generally the same or less to go with Gray Gables and you have a stress free wedding which is priceless. I enjoyed my daughters wedding and didn't have to lift a finger. I recommend this venue highly! Thank you GG for giving my daughter and her husband the wedding of their dreams.

I can't say enough for how pleased we were with our wedding at Gray Gables Estate! Everything went exactly as we had hoped and the venue was absolutely gorgeous. Barb was our consultant and she was absolutely wonderful! She went above and beyond to help us think through each detail of our wedding, met with us on various occasions so we could see the venue and show it off to out of town guests prior to the wedding. It was so great to have her as a day-of consultant as well. She was integral to ensuring that our wedding went off without and hitch and she did so quite brilliantly! Our wedding would not have been as much of a success without her. She helped make us feel incredibly special on our big day.

The venue is absolutely perfect for weddings because it has the wonderful outdoor ambiance (complete with awesome twinkly lights) as well as a great reception hall. The cake even has its own designated bay window! I would do my wedding here again in a heartbeat.

Can you imagine in the process of wedding planning and the stresses it brings, having your wedding venue burn down 2 weeks before your wedding and come to the realization the venue owners were lying and cheating you the entire time? That is what happened to us. We were planning on having our wedding at the View Point Inn. Two and half weeks before our wedding we heard news of the venue catching fire. The destruction was devastating beyond immediate repair. We then found out that the owners let their fire insurance lapse and had to file for bankruptcy. They had no remorse for the soon-to-be brides and did nothing to help out the new situation.

We thought our storybook wedding would never happen. After putting 8 months into preparing and planning we watched as all our hard work seemed to burn to the ground. When we thought we had nowhere to turn Gray Gables made our dream wedding come true. We met with Barb who is a coordinator at the venue and told her our story. Within the same day she worked with us and did all she could to reconstruct our vision.

Barb and the Gray Gables team went above and beyond to map out a menu, coordinate the fine details such as decorations, and any other dreams we had. She did such an amazing job coordinating and had a calm demeanor I felt unexpectedly relaxed despite our circumstances. She worked with the colors we had already picked out (Tiffany Blue…which they have perfect new Tiffany Blue napkins), helped with our menu (the food was astounding and complimented by our guests), and accommodated for any decoration ideas. She worked with our financial budget and sympathized with our situation.

Gray Gables proved to be an honest wedding venue. Integrity is evident and they can be completely trusted with one of the most important days of your life.

Can you imagine in the process of wedding planning and the stresses it brings, having your wedding venue burn down 2 weeks before your wedding and come to the realization the venue owners were lying and cheating you the entire time? That is what happened to us. We were planning on having our wedding at the View Point Inn. Two and half weeks before our wedding we heard news of the venue catching fire. The destruction was devastating beyond immediate repair. We then found out that the owners let their fire insurance lapse and had to file for bankruptcy. They had no remorse for the soon-to-be brides and did nothing to help out the new situation.

We thought our storybook wedding would never happen. After putting 8 months into preparing and planning we watched as all our hard work seemed to burn to the ground. When we thought we had nowhere to turn Gray Gables made our dream wedding come true. We met with Barb who is a coordinator at the venue and told her our story. Within the same day she worked with us and did all she could to reconstruct our vision.

Barb and the Gray Gables team went above and beyond to map out a menu, coordinate the fine details such as decorations, and any other dreams we had. She did such an amazing job coordinating and had a calm demeanor I felt unexpectedly relaxed despite our circumstances. She worked with the colors we had already picked out (Tiffany Blue…which they have perfect new Tiffany Blue napkins), helped with our menu (the food was astounding and complimented by our guests), and accommodated for any decoration ideas. She worked with our financial budget and sympathized with our situation.

Gray Gables proved to be an honest wedding venue. Integrity is evident and they can be completely trusted with one of the most important days of your life. Our story started with a tragedy and deception and ended with a happily ever after thanks to Barbara, Gray Gables Estate, and everyone on their team. Read less

My wedding was Feb. 17 2011, it was the greatest day of my life!!! It just so happened that around the same time I had booked my wedding I had recived a job promotion which made it to were I had little to no time to plan my wedding. Barbra at Grey Gables took 100% care of me, she was like my fairy god mother. If it wasnt for Barb and Grey Gables I am not sure what I would have done. All of the vendors that they recommend were amazing. Each one of them was a pleasure to work with. I would not have changed a thing about my special day it was PERFECT!! THANK YOU BARB!!!

If we would have been married anywhere else I doubt our wedding day would have been so relaxing and enjoyable for us. Gray Gables staff will guide and take care of you on your special day. They know what they're doing so you don't have to! My guests raved about the wonderful time they had. Our wedding pictures look like a fairytale because of the beautiful setting. At night there are thousands of twinkle lights and it becomes even more magical. I don't see how anybody could go wrong by getting married at Gray Gables.

Gray Gables is a BEAUTIFUL venue for weddings of class, elegance and tradition. If you want that luxurious atmosphere with amazing service then this is the place to go! My coordinator at Gray Gables guided me with the best of her abilities and helped make the wedding planning a lot easier. The staff here has excellent customer service. You get what you pay for. The atmosphere is divine, the food is delicious and the service is fabulous. Their Open House events help introduce you to vendors who work with Gray Gables. It's a relief when venues and vendors can work together side by side to help make your day super special. Our wedding day was MORE than we could have ever imagined! Our coordinator was by our side the whole time. Everything was perfect! Gray Gables not only cares about your wedding day but they also care about YOU the bride.

I highly recommend this venue to any couple who desires to have a truly magical experience.

Love,

Johnathan & Coreene Collins

Grey Gables was a wedding dream come true! With less than 3 months to plan a full scale wedding Grey Gables was there to help us at every turn. Contacting and suggesting vendors that have worked with them before to ensure a great flow of our evening.

On our wedding day the staff was always present to help but never intrusive. They were there to keep you on track so you don't forget the cake cutting and bouquet toss. Never pushy but there with a gentle nudge in the right direction.

One of my favorite parts of Gray Gables was the ability to watch my guests arrive without being seen! The bridal suite overlooks the entrance but is hidden by the trees so you wont be seen even if your guests look up. Seeing their faces as they took in all of the natural beauty and grandeur was priceless!

Our day was one that not only my husband (it's so fun to say husband by the way) I will look back on fondly but our guests will as well!

Our wedding coordinator, Barbara, was extraordinary! She definately knows what she is doing! She was wonderful to work with and everything went smoothly and according to plan (and if it didn't, we sure didn't notice anything wrong!) The price is a bit high, but they have alot to offer for that. Transportation, catering (the menu is unbelievable! So many amazing choices!), the centerpieces were beautiful and totally matched our wedding colors and the theme we were going for. Barbara was awesome at offering us all the advice we needed and was able to coordinate everything from band to photography with us and offer suggestions when we were unsure of what to do.

If I had to narrow my compliments down to one word it would be: Genevieve. This was the only venue we looked at because it was the first and once we'd met Genevieve there was no question. The main things she brought to the table were trust and peace of mind. She made our day so enjoyable as we just knew we didn't need to have a single worry. As for the venue, it was even better than anticipated. It became evident at the reception that it was a team effort including staff members that I vaguely remember seeing here and there in the midst of the fun... so efficient and professional. Thank you, Gray Gables!

Our wedding went great with Gray Gables Estate. Genevieve was so great to work with. I never knew what having a wedding coordinator really meant. I figured oh they are there to make sure we are booking vendors and details in time. On the day of our wedding I finally figure it out.....Genevieve meant we didn't worry about one thing that happened that day, she made sure everything went off and around the time it should. We didn't think about when are we doing the cake, or toasting or any of that stuff. It just happened and left us to enjoy our day and have fun. We had about 100 people at our wedding and I felt like that was such a perfect size there, not too crowded outside in the ceremony or even inside for the reception.

My husband and I got married at Gray Gables on February 19, 2011. I am extremely happy with our choice to get married there, and had a wedding that was truly more wonderful then I could have ever hoped for. Our cordinator Genevieve was absolutly wonderful. I know she has planned dozens weddings (if not hundreds), but never once did I feel like I was just a number, or like anything was more important to her then our special day. We had several meetings before the wedding and found that we could be as involved or uninvolved in the planning as we wanted. The day of the wedding all my bridesmaids kept asking why I wasn't more stressed out about everything, and it's because I knew I was being taken care of so well by Genevieve and the rest of the staff. My mother, mother in-law and bridal party were so happy that they did not need to worry about setting up the venue, or staying late to clean up (Gray Gables takes care of that!), so they were able to be relaxed as well. I could go on and on about how everything from the food to the decorations were perfect, but what I really liked was how Genevieve paid attention to little details (my favorite color is pink, so whenever she would get me a drink at the wedding it had pink straws).

I really cannot say enough nice things about this venue, All of my friends were prepairing me for something to go wrong, saying those were the most special moments. I am so happy to say that not 1 thing went wrong at our wedding, so my memories of the wedding are completely perfect!

The venue is very beautiful with everything a bride and groom need for a wedding. On the actual wedding day the staff went to work and the service was absolutely superb. The only minor thing we found lacking was in the communications leading up to the event. Often times we'd have a question and there was no one available to talk with us. We actually ended up going to other vendors to get answers. There also seems to be a communication breakdown between Gray Gables and their vendors with processes and pricing.

I just got married two weeks ago at Gray Gables. Planning a wedding in Portland from where I live in Maryland was a daunting task at first. I actually didn't even see Gray Gables in person until after we had already booked there! But my mom and my sister went and saw it and knew that it was the perfect place for my wedding, and they were right! Genevieve, my wedding coordinator at Gray Gables, really helped make the entire process so smooth and low stress. There is no substitute for experience and they have it in spades! The venue is absolutely beautiful and all my guests had a great time. The food was wonderful and everything worked seamlessly. My only complaint was that when we fell behind schedule on the day of the event, they were pretty persistent about letting me know that we were behind, which is really the last thing a bride wants to hear! It did not allow me to enjoy myself as much as I would have otherwise. However, my husband solved the problem by paying for an extra half hour of time on the estate and then I was able to relax. I would definitely recommend Gray Gables, especially if you are planning a wedding from long distance. The help you receive from the staff will take a lot off your shoulders.

We booked gray gables for our wedding almost a year before the date. From the beginning of the process our coordinator, Genevieve, had all the information we needed to plan out our wedding. She even had a calendar of when all the different things should be done by and booked by, which was very helpful. Each scheduled meeting helped keep us on track and stay on top of the things we needed to get done, which is especially helpful when you have a wedding that is almost a year away. Another great advantage of working with gray gables is their preferred vendor list. Everytime we would meet with vendors and tell them that we were getting married at gray gables their immediate response would be along the lines of "oh, ok no problem.". Many of the vendors around the Portland area have been working with gray gables for many years, which makes the coordination between the vendors and the facility a breeze. Genevieve was always very helpful and patient through out many decision changes, even up to a month before the wedding. They also have an open house in feburary for the coming summer events that showcases different vendors and also their catering choices. It was a fun event to get re-energized for the planning process. Gray gables takes care of so many things that it saves so much time, especially for busy people like us. They were one of the more expensive venues that we looked at, but it has been worth every penny because of how easy it has been to plan our wedding.

Gray Gables is a beautiful venue for a wedding. We worked with Genevieve, and she is the absolute best wedding coordinator ever! She took care of everything so that we didn't have to do anything the day of our wedding except to sit back and enjoy it. Genevieve makes it all seem so effortless.

As far as Gray Gables, it is magical! The outdoor pavilion is perfect for a summer wedding. The ballroom is absolutely gorgeous.

Overall, I can't imagine a better place for a wedding!

This venue is beautiful, all around! There was some concern about the proximity of the main road and traffic noise, but I didn't notice it during our wedding. The coordinators are very friendly and helpful, and it was so nice to have someone else keeping track of time on the big day. It was a relief not to have to worry about the timeline and just enjoy the party!

Gray Gables is a beautiful and stunning setting for your wedding. I absolutely love it and love that I had my event there. The pricing was a little challenging, so I had to have my wedding on a Sunday to make it work. Which was okay, but a lot of guests had to leave early because they worked on Monday so that was a bit disappointing. However, the wedding day went very smoothly and every one of our guests absolutely loved the beauty of the estate. The food selections that we chose were great! Our wedding planner Barb was very helpful and really made sure that I didn't freak out too much.

Thank you so much to everyone who helped for our special day. you all made it truly amazing. Thsi place was by far the most beautiful place in the portland area, (I believe we looked at about 25 different venues before agreeing on this one). A little spendy, yes, however, every single penny was totally worth it once i saw my bride walk down that isle. If i had to do it again i would do everything the same way. thank you again. and a special thanks to Barbara, our son really loved you too.

Gray Gables is a beautiful and secluded venue in the Milwaukie area, and a good choice especially if you will have more than 75 guests. It is pricey but many things are taken care of for you so you don't have to worry (a wedding planner is included in the price, as well as ceremony & reception, catering, beverage, etc) They also recommend vendors that are familiar with their location. Sometimes I felt that the communication was not great, but our day still went very well and our planner kept things running smoothly. Only downside was that it rained so we couldn't have our ceremony out in the beautiful garden (they have an indoor option)... but that is not their fault. In fact, if you still want it outside they will do it for you - you just have to pay for tents. They are flexible with how you want the ceremony to go, and with outside vendors.
I do wish now, however, that I wouldn't have spent that much - and we were even in the off-season!

I had a great wedding here and the day of I didn't realize anything had gone wrong but after the fact I found out that the coordinator turned off the air conditioning (when it was 91 outside) because too many people were going in and out of the doors. Also, I guess some of the food wasn't properly displayed (as in not sanitary). But like I said the day of I thought everything was great.

Gray Gables is a very beautiful place, but not worth the prive that you end up paying at the end. Before signing the contract the place sounded pretty reasonable. but after the contract has been signed they started charging for every little thing. And if they say you have a choice of colors, be ready to pay couple hundred extra for that. They promise a lot but there a lot of hidden fees. We went way over our budget and compare to other venues, it's very expensive for the value. They were very organized on the wedding day but constantly kept us in a rush through out the whole wedding day. We spent over $8000.00 for 5 hours just for the venue. Food wasn't enough even though we had 15 ppl not showed up and it wasn't that great.

Loved the look of the location. Beautiful indoors and out. I was turned off by staff and the cost of the food. They require you use their food vendor. The food was not that great for the cost. When I would call, only once did I get my person live on the phone. I would have to leave a message and get a call back a day or more later for simple questions.

Gray Gables Estate responded with the following comments:

Caroline purchased a discounted package that did not include the full services of our planners.

We encouraged them to get our normal package but they chose to do the "Day Of" services themselves and thus save a few dollars.

Of course hind sight is 20/20. We know how difficult it is to plan and co-ordinate a wedding and reception We are professionals and we have had nearly 1100 weddings and receptions under our belt.
