This place is wonderful! Right now we're still in the planning process, but so far everything has been great. They respond to my emails quickly and even have open houses for anyone to stop by and check the place out or even look around to get a better idea of how you want it to look on your big day. I'm very happy with our choice of venue and I can't wait to get the full experience on our wedding day!

We had our beautiful wedding at West End this past December. It accommodated all of our guests and was perfect to have our wedding downstairs and our reception upstairs so we didn't have to have everyone transport to somewhere else. Throughout the process, I must have sent a hundred emails with questions or concerns and every one of them had a quick response with answers that I needed. They were flexible with circumstances that came up and I loved that someone was there the night of to make sure everything went smoothly. I also liked how they had someone at the door all night to make sure nothing fishy happened! I saved a ton of money with discounts and deals they had and I got so many compliments with how beautiful the setting was and how fun the built in photo booth was! I totally recommend this venue for anyone looking for a classy Portland wedding and a beautiful landscape of vintage quality! Thanks West End!!

The West End Ballroom was the perfect place for my husband and I to get married. The staff there is incredibly helpful with planning and figuring out details. They are there whenever you need them. The ballroom has its own character and I just loved that you didn't need to bring a ton of decorations to dress it up, it already is a classic setting for a wedding. Out caterer, florist and venue were all perfect and I could not imagine getting married anywhere else. Thank you West End Ballroom!

We searched high and low untill we came across this beautiful place! Ceremony and reception in one and even though I highly dislike driving to Portland, it was super easy to find it and it doesn't hurt that there is ample street parking and parking lots all around. Throughout the whole experience Lauren was my girl and I'm sure she has heard the same questions over and over but she was very sweet always had a smile and so quick to respond. She even added on some fun features of the venue that you have to pay for for free! Day of the wedding I had Katie who was a true pro even when I was in the middle of a melt down when we were running an hour behind! Highly recommend this venue worth every penny!

Lauren was amazing and well-organized, as well as flexible in helping us have the best wedding day possible. Jennifer was also very kind and helpful during the initial communication process.
Really, Lauren is a hard working and fantastic asset to this venue, and she was seriously the best vendor I dealt with. She provided notice well in advance of what I should expect of things I should be getting ready to do/pay/think of, etc.
the space itself is amazing and was the perfect blend of old and new. We loved having our wedding there and will never forget it. Having a wedding planner to help with the day of was crucial to help with little logistical details in this space. We had a perfect, beautiful event here with no glitches. Lauren was a delight, and had even worked our wedding night despite having a huge multiple wedding weekend and being exhausted. Thank you Lauren!!!

On the outside it doesn't look like much at all, but once you go in you see how much natural beauty the building has. We didn't need to do hardly any additional dressing up for the downstairs ceremony room because the lighting is already romantic with candles everywhere. The sound quality from the system that they have downstairs is a lot better than what I was expecting and due to unforeseen circumstances we ended up needing to play the first few songs of the ceremony on my mom's cell phone! The size of the reception room held a guest count of about 150 very comfortably. Dancing was a little cozy but we all managed to have a really nice time. The girls at the West End are so sweet and super professional. They are easy to contact with any questions and never make you feel like you are completely wasting their time with your bridal or mother of the bride questions. They know a lot about the building and the little tricks to really heighten the beauty of the venue. Bringing in beer and wine was super easy and the price to rent the ballroom ended up being cheaper than the photographer by about a thousand dollars. They have great deals with their recommended vendors that also helped make the day a lot more affordable for everyone. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone--a lovely experience :)

Highly recommend for a beautiful downtown venue that worked for both ceremony and reception. Romantic ceremony downstairs, great party up! It's a very convenient and rare offering to have the 2 ballrooms plus a great landing for cocktail hour. The look of the space is much more romantic and charming than any of the other Portland spaces we considered. Relatively speaking, pricing is reasonable, and getting to bring in your own beer and champagne is great (didn't love the venue's wine that we had to use, but it was ok). We worked Lauren at West End during the planning process. She kept us well informed and was wonderfully helpful with all my silly little questions. We didn't have any hiccups from initial meeting - day of. Also, ask about their preferred coordinator to make your day worry free. Thanks to everyone at West End for making our day so wonderful!

The West End Ballroom is a beautiful, fun and inviting place to host your Wedding. Working with Lauren was awesome because she was so helpful to help us plan out a lot of the details and spacing for our big night.

Whats great about this venue is that they already have a lot of the tables and chairs that you will need for your Wedding as well as a photo booth! There are so many little things that really make this place a diamond in the ruff. I couldn't have imagined my wedding anywhere else and really enjoyed working with the West End.
