We knew immediately that North Star was our venue when we took a tour. We really loved their flexibility (no preferred or required vendors!), as well as their responsiveness, the low price, and the charming decor and character of the space itself. Because you get the entire building to use for your event, we were able to have a bridal ready room, a childcare room, a spot for our photobooth in the separate bar room, and a full kitchen for our caterers to use.

Leslie is wonderfully helpful with timely reminders and past layouts to use as examples. She let me view the space a couple extra times to make sure I knew how I wanted the room set up. Not to mention the Ballroom itself is GORGEOUS. So tastefully decorated that my work was made easy!

Best venue I could fine that would allow us to pick our own vendors and cater our own reception. Very easy to work with, and very prompt in answering all our questions, we would absolutely use North Star again.

The space was absolutely stunning! And the staff were so helpful and nice. The price can not be beat in the Portland area. Everything about this place was perfect for the vintage wedding. And I saved a bunch of money on decorations because the venue didn't need a thing!

I want to start off by saying how amazingly beautiful North Star Ballroom is. It was perfect for the style and colors of our wedding. I loved the fact that we didn't have to do much decoration to make this place look beautiful. I also loved the fact that there was plenty of room downstairs for the buffet and for the kids to hang out. The double sided bar was absolutely amazing too. This place's set up is ideal. I really had no issue at all with the service or place. I love the fact that they allow you to bring in your own vendors as well. This was a selling point for me. The only change I would like to see is for the ballroom to be rented out for more than 8 hours. I felt like everything was a little rushed since the 8 hours included set up and tear down time. It would have just been easier to not have such a strict time restraint. This is possibly because I chose to do my ceremony and reception here which I am sure is different from most other weddings. Otherwise, AMAZING! Thank you so much for making me wedding look and feel amazing!

We booked this place for an evening reception. While I personally did not like the color of the decor in the hall, the lighting was adjusted so you couldn't really notice the color of the curtains and benches to the point where it wasn't an issue. The venue easily accommodated our small reception, and had a bar, which is always a bonus. Comparatively, the price was good to other venues in the area. They have a small speaker system that we were able to plug our iPod into for free. The only main issue was the lady we booked it with. She was a bit spacey, and didn't really explain much too us, and forgot some of what we told her regarding what we wanted. She was easy to reach by e-mail, responded quickly, and double checked everything with us so overall it was a very pleasant experience.

A beautiful antique building! Requires little decoration other than your tables because of the awesome architecture. A little spendy, but you make up for it by being able to bring in your own food and beverages so it definitely evens out the venue cost. The only real downside is that they do not allow fireworks of any kind and i had my heart set on sparklers for our exit.
