Thank you for letting Abernethy be part of your special day!

We are very, very happy we had our wedding at Abigail’s Garden at Abernethy Center!!

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!

The whole day was amazing from start to finish.

What is your fondest memory from your time here?

My husband says, when I walked down the aisle. I just think the whole day was amazing from start to finish and went better then I could have ever imagined. Abernethy is a beautiful venue that knows how to put together an amazing party. I will never forget my wedding day, and how simply amazing it was.

The setting was just so beautiful.

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.

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.

The entire process was a dream.

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.

The ceremony was gorgeous.

Could not have asked for a more beautiful setting, every one of my guests raved about it!

The ceremony was gorgeous, the natural setting and layout of the garden are spectacular and I loved it. I also loved working with Laura, she is an invaluable resource that made my life and planning process so much easier and more fun. There were so many details, some that I would never have thought of, that she helped me work out. Knowing that I had someone to lean on and ask questions, made everything so much easier and FUN!

Staff was friendly, helpful and outgoing.

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.

Staff and facility were absolutely wonderful.

This is my third daughter to be married, and the first at Abernethy Center. The staff and facility were absolutely wonderful. We wanted for nothing, as every detail was handled beyond expectation by the staff. Additionally I made a last minute request that was handled with great care and concern, not to mention it was handled flawlessly. I absolutely will recommend this incredible facility and staff to anyone. Thanks for helping to make this a great day for us all.

Sincerely, Randy Alimossy

Let me start by saying WOW!

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!

It was completely magical!

What is your fondest memory from your time here?

Really? EVERYTHING! Every visit, every moment, our rehearsal and our wedding day! It was all completely magical! We had a worry-free wedding. Our guests said it was elegant, lovely, and that they really enjoyed themselves. This is more than we could have ever made possible on our own.

I can’t imagine a more perfect place!

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!

Helpful, Responsive, Patient and Accommodating.

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.

Great staff!!

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!

Beautiful atmosphere.

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!

Amazing is all I can say!

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!

Abernethy Center is the BEST!!

“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.”

Abernethy Center far exceeded my expectations.

“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!!!”

Abernethy Center was the best choice I could have made.

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!

Absolutely stunning venue!!

The food and atmosphere were amazing!! Absolutely stunning venue!! And the day of coordinator was so very kind. She definitely made the day all about me and my husband!!!!

The perfect setting.

The veiled garden at the Abernethy Center was the perfect setting for what turned out to be the perfect wedding! All the staff there was great, very helpful and attentive. The reception went off perfectly in the ballroom. We sort of customized our dinner, we had a fajita buffetand it was amazing. The food tasted great! The staff made sure the party flowed. Drinks were great too. We did margaritas as our signature drink. All of our guest have told us it was the best wedding they have been too. Was a great day and would love to do it again!!

Everything went flawlessly.

My husband and I were married in Abigail’s garden followed by a tented reception on October 3, 2015. From the rehearsal to the actual wedding day everything went flawlessly. Sarah, our venue coordinator was kind, helpful, easy to follow and kept our group calm and on time. She was extremely attentive the day of the wedding, directed our vendors accordingly, offered her assistance at every turn and was just fabulous. Our hors d’oeuvres were waiting at our table with a glass of wine and water and was promptly followed by our entrees. No problem with us starving! And the food was absolutely delicious. I was worried that it wouldn’t be hot, but they didn’t disappoint and we received compliments all night about the quality of the food and the overall beauty of the venue. I really cannot rave enough about what an amazing and unforgettable experience we had. We have no complaints and would highly recommend Abernethy Center. Thank you!

Stress free and fun!

They make wedding planning stress free and fun! Our wedding was beautiful, the food was amazing, and the staff were all so great to work with.

We fell in love with it from day one!

Abigail’s Garden was the most beautiful venue to get married in! We fell in love with it from day one! Day of our event coordinator Vicki was great and handled everything with ease. It truly was one of the best days of our lives!

Preparation and professionalism.

From the very beginning of the planning phases of our wedding, Elisabeth was always ready to answer our ten thousand questions, and handle any and all inevitable hiccups we ran into during the weeks before our event. From the moment we arrived at the venue on our Magical Day, Amy and the rest of the event staff were able to walk that very fine line of always being where they needed to be, while simultaneously never being in the way. The preparation, the professionalism, and the way they always managed to keep things calm and fun, are just a few of the reasons that the Abernethy Center and its staff will always be the first place I suggest when anyone is looking for an event venue.

We had the absolute best wedding day!

My husband and I were just married at this venue a few weeks ago and we had the absolute best wedding day! Our ceremony was in the chapel and the reception was in the ballroom. Elizabeth was very helpful during the whole wedding planning process. Our ceremony specialist Sarah was the sweetest and she made the whole day run so smoothly. All of my guests were so impressed with the food and they thought both the chapel and ballroom looked beautiful. I can’t think of anything negative to say!

Professional, friendly, and genuine.

This place was seriously beautiful!

This place was seriously beautiful! I can’t believe how good my pictures looked. We were in the Veiled Garden with a ballroom reception and it was an amazing setting. The ceremony felt like we were far away from everything, even though we were right in town. The ballroom was a fantastic place for a reception. The getting ready room had plenty of space, the go-to woman for the day was incredibly helpful. They were so on top of everything, I can’t believe how smoothly everything flowed. I know they always so that something always goes wrong at a wedding, but absolutely nothing did. We did a morning wedding, with a brunch reception and a mimosa bar. I worked with Elizabeth to put together a perfect menu, bar selection, table design, everything. They were very reasonable, and totally willing to go over things time and again to make sure that it was all just right. I cannot say enough good things about the food. We served brunch, and everything was beyond delicious. People have been complimenting me on the food ever since the wedding. Some of the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. I would absolutely recommend the apple smoke bacon. I know bacon doesn’t sound like a fancy wedding treat, but seriously, it was the best bacon I’ve ever had in my life! And the setting was just so beautiful. It looked like something out of a fairy tale. It was perfect for our morning wedding, as the sun was just coming through the leaves as the ceremony began. Several people inquired about how to book the Abernethy Center for themselves. It is seriously one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Portland area. I cannot recommend them enough!
