The Nines Hotel - Portland Wedding Venue Feature

Did you see the article published in Oregon Bride featuring this styled shoot? Read it here!

This Portland wedding city venue is perfect for those who value a culinary experience and stunning backdrops for wedding photos.

Your Perfect Bridesmaid has worked with dozens of venues, so we like to share our vendor partners we love working with. Back in February, we planned a styled shoot for micro weddings at The Nines and the photos are STUNNING.

Below we've shared galleries of each room The Nines offers, along with a list of vendors we used to style the space. Enjoy!

Many Portland natives know of The Nines Luxury Collection Hotel for its luxurious hotel experience and its connection to Departure, a high-end bar and dining experience with unparalleled views of Portland.

We know of the The Nines Hotel for its potential to be an intimate and luxurious venue for your wedding. The Nines has various spaces (we've included galleries at the bottom) that offer stunning city skyline views and work well with multiple themes.

Here are the themes we think work best with the spaces at the Nines:

  • Royal & Luxurious

  • Classic Romantic

  • Formal Contemporary

What We Love

Art and Decor Galore

If you love the look of the hotel, you won't have to allocate a lot of money to your wedding décor budget. The hotel has over 2 million dollars of PNW art in the event spaces and all the hallways. The art, the elegant chandeliers, breathtaking city-views practically decorate the space for you (check out the photos below!).

Culinary Experience > Standard Plates

The Nines offers a unique culinary experience for couples who may want to prioritize food in their wedding budget. Treat your guests, and yourself!

Accommodation for Guests

We think The Nines is great if you plan to invite traveling guests. Guests can book rooms at a discounted rate at The Nines or stay at one of the many surrounding hotels in the city. And, you you can celebrate with with your sweetheart in one of the luxurious suites after the celebration.

What To Keep In Mind

The most stunning views are from the top of the building on the Departure Deck. If you want to book your venue through The Nines and have your ceremony on the Departure Deck, your ceremony must conclude before 4 PM. Otherwise, you will have to book through Departure.
