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!

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 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.

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.

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.

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. Read less
