Rooftop weddings and wedding venues in Portland

Want an outdoor venue but don’t want to stray too far from the Portland city center? Consider a rooftop venue as your very own urban serenity. Rooftop venues serve as your private panorama to a breathtaking view of Rose City. Portland’s rooftop venues offer your guests a first hand glimpse of the visual treasures of Portland. Rooftop venues provide a modern, romantic atmosphere for your wedding and Portland’s rooftop venues are among the best! Three Portland rooftop locations include Hotel deLuxe, Embassy Suites Portland Downtown and DeSoto Rooftop Terrace.

Hotel deLuxe is known for its old Hollywood style elegance. While they have an indoor meeting facility, they also have a rooftop space available for your outdoor wedding. This venue is perfect for any glamorous bride!

Rooftop venues are a fun and trendy place to tie the knot. However, they are much more rare than other outdoor venues, therefore be sure to book your ideal venue in advance. Additional logistics to consider; most rooftop venues need tenting and additional decor in order to create your wedding vision. In some cases, they do not have an indoor component or have very limited indoor amenities.

We like rooftop venues because they can be a “blank slate” for design, meaning that they can transform to fit your ideal wedding style. Additionally, if the rooftop belongs to a hotel, then you have the added convenience of hotel amenities. Specifically in Portland, you can enjoy city attractions, outdoor views and be within close proximity to lodging. Hotel rooftop venues are a great option if your guest list consists of a large amount of out of town guests.

Booking the perfect rooftop venue is the first step in planning your unique wedding. A rooftop wedding is a chic alternative to the ordinary outdoor wedding. Imagine yourself surrounded by the beautiful Portland skyline as you dance beneath the stars and toast among the clouds. Cheers!

  1. Rooftop weddings are really rare! Actually, I’m wondering why they’re rare, when they are all so charming and beautiful! Hmm. Maybe they don’t want their wedding ceremonies to happen at nighttime! But for some girls, being married under the moonlight will make them feel more delightful and romantic. Is there someone who ever thought that riding a helicopter for the “get-away” part is much more thrilling than riding a vintage car? Well, I think so!

  2. It does sound pretty dreamy. You can imagine a beautiful sky being the ceiling of that special event, not to mention the excitement of being high up on the roof of a tall hotel. The scenery, with the beautiful architecture included, will be a grand one as well, no doubt about it.

  3. Wow! Great list of roof top wedding venues. All venues are superb. Really very difficult to choose the best. But I like the most is DeSoto Rooftop Terrace. Thanks for sharing this amazing list of roof top wedding venues.
