Great staff, especially Elizabeth, who helped me through all the venue planning for my wedding last month. And the venue itself is gorgeous! We used the chapel and ballroom and LOVED them both!”
From the day we first met with the AC team until the moment we left Abigail's Garden at 11:00 pm the evening of our wedding, they have been nothing but exceptional in the quality of the services they provided for our daughter's wedding. Abigail's Garden is a magical place that is perfect for a garden wedding. The grounds are not only impeccable, but you and your guests feel that you are miles away from the hectic city. Our plated dinner was delicious and we were so grateful that they were willing to adapt to our menu requests. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the appetizers, dinner and wine services. The wait staff were friendly, efficient and accommodating. Our courses all arrived in a timely manner and at the correct temperatures.Our wedding coordinator, Laura was always there to answer questions and to guide us with our decisions for this important day. The bridal dressing room was gorgeous. I would highly recommend any of the venues at the AC for your upcoming wedding. I can't imagine a more perfect place!
We are very, very happy we had our wedding at Abigail's Garden at Abernethy Center!! From the very beginning their staff was professional, friendly, and genuine. It was evident that our event coordinator and our day of specialist truly cared about us and wanted to help us make our wedding beautiful and special in every way that they could. We loved their inclusive service, that really set them apart from other vendors we looked at. Our ceremony and reception spaces looked absolutely amazing, the sound system worked great, not to mention that their chefs are amazing; all of our guests kept raving about the food! The staff at Abernethy know weddings inside and out. They pay attention to the little details and are attentive to the needs and wants of the bride and groom. We have nothing but positive words to say about our experience. We would highly recommend Abernethy Center!
Just had our wedding at the outdoor venue on 9/18/15. Beautiful property and wonderful place for an outdoor wedding. I'd recommend the Abernathy to anyone.”
The entire process was a dream. From the etiquette class and bridal bag to the menu tasting and meetings with our event specialist, I really felt special. Every step of the way - every question or detail I had - was answered quickly! Having our wedding at Abernethy was especially significant for us because my husband proposed to me in the Veiled Garden over lunch with the ring in a champagne flute! Walking down the aisle in that same space felt like bringing everything full circle.
We so enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere of the Veiled Garden. We loved having our first look on the bridge and having our first kiss on the gazebo! After dreaming about getting married in the veiled garden for years, it finally happened and it was perfect!
Everyone at Abernethy Center was so helpful, responsive, patient, and accommodating. Their process is seamless and made the planning fun instead of stressful. Instead of running around like crazy the day of the wedding, my family and I were able to relax and enjoy the day since the staff had everything under control.
Amazing is all I can say! We are still getting comments that it was the most beautiful venue they have been to for a wedding! The ceremony in the chapel was everything I had imagined growing up! Also the gardens for pictures just gave it that special touch!
Let me just start by saying WOW! My husband & I just got married here on 3/29/14 and it was all around an incredible experience! Elizabeth, did a great job on gathering the details that we wanted. She even thought of things that never even crossed my mind! Planning a wedding is tricky and can be overwhelming and we did it in three months! Abernethy was very thoughtful and flexible with our schedule. They offer you a complete list of vendors and I would highly suggest using them. Everyone was very familiar with the space and knew how to work together. This made our entire day flow so smooth. We had a morning ceremony and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding experience! See the full review on Yelp!
We had our wedding last July. The setting was just so beautiful, the lanterns, the landscaping, the gazebo. Our pictures look magical and so much of that was because of how beautiful the property was. The staff was wonderful to work with and we felt confident the whole time that everything was in good hands. The getting ready rooms were also amazing!
The food was delicious! Many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding food they had ever had. The food was absolutely good, I loved how the staff thoughtfully prepares a plate for the bride and groom so they have the ability to eat something and still have plenty of time to be attentive to their guests.
"I would recommend Abernethy Center to anyone who is looking for a place to get married or have a special event! Everyone I encountered was super-helpful and gracious. Abernethy Center far exceeded my expectations. Everything from the ground to the ballroom was beautiful - and the food was excellent! What more could you ask for - excellent staff, excellent food, excellent surroundings! Thank you for making my wedding day PERFECT!!!"
"I found Abernethy Center years ago online and fell in love with it! When I got engaged it was the first place I thought of to go look...and I was not disappointed! They made one of the most important days/nights of my life absolutely magical...I have been to many other venues in the Portland Metro area and Abernethy Center truly was the best choice I could have ever made!...If you choose Abernethy Center don't be afraid to brain storm new and innovative ideas with the staff they are open and willing to work with you to make your special day all that you want it to be!"
"Each individual of their staff was very friendly, helpful and outgoing. From the first day we walked in the door to the night we left the reception the service was exceptional and beyond comparison. The energy in the entire space is positive. They have a huge selection from food and beverage to linens and ideas. The aesthetics of the venue are beyond belief. Other gardens are not as clean or well kept and for the price you get more than expected. I would recommend this venue to anyone for a wedding, banquet or other special event for its beauty and service which are beyond comparison to others in the area."
"Abernethy Center is the BEST!! We planned our wedding from out of state and we needed a venue that we could trust. Our wedding was flawless. The venue is so pretty and PERFECT for a wedding. The food was great! Our family loved it and so did we. We highly recommend Abernethy Center."
