Weddings at Maryhill Winery:
Located in the Columbia Gorge wine region overlooking majestic Mt. Hood and the Columbia River, Maryhill Winery gives ‘destination wedding’ a new definition. Just a hour and a half from Portland, Ore., and a scenic four-hour drive from Seattle, Maryhill Winery is perched on a cliff surrounded by grape vines and blossoming cherry trees, providing blushing brides and grooms with an array of breathtaking backdrops to take their vows. Recently named ‘2009 Washington Winery of the Year’ by Wine Press Northwest and 2009’s ‘Best Destination Winery’ by Seattle Magazine, Maryhill Winery successfully transports guests to another world without leaving the Northwest.
Maryhill’s newly-built South Bluff ceremony site includes room for up to 200 seated guests. Couples have the choice of three additional ceremony and reception sites: Maryhill’s grape-covered arbor provides the perfect setting for an intimate wedding (seated: 125 guests; wine reception with dance floor: 200 guests), while the north recreation/pavilion area (300 guests) and amphitheatre/stage (500+ guests) offer scenery and setup options all their own. All of Maryhill’s scenic sites are available for any portion of the event.
Adding a personal touch to any reception, couples can have their favorite Maryhill wines adorned with custom labels including images and text, for an additional $60 per case. Wedding couples also receive a 20 percent case discount on wines with a minimum purchase of five cases. Maryhill’s tasting room will remain open for a portion of the event for guests who are interested in purchasing wine or gift items.
Included in the wedding and reception site fee of $5,500 are wedding planning services and day-of support by “I Do Events,” a bridal dressing room, scheduled rehearsal time prior to the wedding, 20 rectangular tables and 360 folding chairs. Security and a parking attendant will also be provided on the day of the wedding. A list of professional and affordable musicians, local catering options, photographers and other vendors will be provided.
Maryhill will host weddings June through September, excluding holidays and scheduled concert weekends. Event set-up and start times vary upon ceremony and reception location.
