The Foundry at Oswego Pointe
Amazing people that work there. They made it feel like I was the only bride on their schedule that month. (Obviously I wasn't b/c the place is fabulous). Fast, efficient, helpful =a very happy bride!
My fiancé and I checked out at least 10 venues in the Portland area. We decided on a late Mar wedding, so with the weather being unpredictable that time of year, we knew we needed to have an indoor ceremony. We also needed a venue that could host the ceremony and reception, since we weren't interested in a religious setting.
The Foundry turned out to be a perfect fit for us. We were a bit worried about only one location in terms of photo opportunities. But luckily the location offers beautiful foliage, rock formations, walking paths and the promenade over the water.
The traditional Saturday fee was outside of our budget, so we opted for a Thursday. Our guests didn't seem to have issues or mind, and most who came from out of town/state, ended up taking a long weekend and enjoying their stay in the pacific northwest.
We did end up working with a day-of coordinator though (Creations by Ly), since The Foundry doesn't provide facilitation of vendor engagement and conducting day of timing. Kaylee was our point of contact at The Foundry and she was always responsive to our questions/needs. She collaborated well with our day-of coordinator and caterer (Pearl Catering) on the chair/table layout for ceremony and reception and arrival/departure requirements and delivery needs.
We couldn't have picked a more perfect spot for our special day. Everything turned out beautifully and we appreciated the efforts of everyone involved.
Our wedding at the Foundry was amazing!! We are so blessed to have had such a beautiful event space for our special day.
Alicia and the rest of the Foundry staff were very professional, fun and relaxed. (Which really can help a nervous bride) Everything went perfectly and many of our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they had been to.
Even despite the Oregon fall rain, we were able to utilize the beautiful promenade for some spectacular wedding photos. I wouldn't have changed a thing. ( Even with the very full house of over 200)
Thank you very much to everyone involved to make this one of the best days of our lives!

The Foundry was the beautiful and perfect reception site for my wedding. I did my ceremony at Roehr Park since I had too many guests to fit the promenade and it was very convenient.
Alicia was great and helped me tremendously throughout the process. The only thing I wish is that the Foundry had more variety in furniture (bistro tables,etc.) but I realize it is a newer site. I also in hindsight would have considered a different caterer from the preferred list. However, all in all, I loved The Foundry and the experience I had planning it...
The Foundry was fantastic! All of our guests where amazed of how beautiful this pace was. My wife and I did a lot of research and this was actually one of the cheapest places we looked at. Also a lot of venues we looked at not only were more expensive but had a lot of rules and requirements. I really like that the foundry let us have the wedding the way we wanted and didn't limit us to rules and requirements. We felt this venue was the best value in Portland hands down. If you get a chance to use The Foundry as your venue I would book them right away, because I've already done the research and nobody else compares.
EveryOne loved the venue! It didn't need decorations its so beautiful and the staff is so sweet and easy to work with!
The Foundry at Oswego Pointe is one of the most beautiful venues. Not only is the setting beautiful but the staff is fabulous to work with. I would highly recommend this venue.
The Foundry was a fantastic place to host the wedding of my daughter and Son-in-law. The setting is phenomenal. The guest utilized the outdoor patio overlooking the Willamette River, as well as the main floor. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and courteous. They even offered a shoulder to cry on during a family crisis. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a reception no greater than 135 people.
Great choice for a wedding or party of any kind. The view is breathtaking, the deck is big and roomy for everyone to step out and enjoy some fresh air, and the walkway down to the water a fun addition to take a short journey. Everything was perfect, the dance floor, sound system, lighting, tables & beautiful chairs provided, projector provided for slideshow, etc.... We highly recommend The Foundry at Oswego Pointe for your next celebration!!
Couldn't be a better venue for my daughter's wedding on April 13. Our 160+ guests had a great time in a fantastic room with beautiful views of the Willamette River. They could have arrived and departed by boat if they had wanted to! Foundry folks were easy to work with and had good relationships with our caterer, florist, decorator, etc. Real good value for the price too.
