The Northwest's most trusted name in wedding planning

Portland Spirit & Gorge Sternwheeler Weddings… And a Fantastic Special!

For 18 years, Portland Spirit has helped couples cruise toward happily ever after. Couples fall for stunning settings and yachts, flawless service and a range of affordable options. Our experienced wedding specialists guide couples through all their big-day decisions. What people may not know about the Portland Spirit is the number of options that are available.

Our name is the Portland Spirit and yes, that is our flagship yacht, but we also have smaller vessels that can be privately rented and make the perfect fit for any size group. The Willamette Star is our medium size yacht and is great for parties up to about 140 guests. It has that classic nautical feel with brass trims and stunning woodwork. The Crystal Dolphin is great for parties up to 100 passengers, has three levels including the Starlight Deck which is he place to be when the sun is shining! Finally, in the Gorge we have our Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler. That classic feel of a paddlewheeler with the Columbia River Gorge as your backdrop. Makes for some beautiful pictures! Thunder Island makes the perfect riverside setting for your ceremony and the Gorge Pavilion, our fully enclosed, riverside event space, for your reception.

Finally, for smaller groups from 2-40 passengers you can bring your group on board any of our public cruise offerings on the Portland Spirit or the Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler and have one of our Captain’s perform the ceremony. A public cruise ceremony is ideal for the bride and groom looking for easy planning, a unique, affordable experience and not concerned with the formality of a private event.

Reserve your special day with us and take advantage of our entertainment special exclusive to Bravo Blog readers! You book your private wedding package, and we will book your entertainment. You will receive a $500 credit to put toward a DJ, band or other entertainment of your choice. Fine Print: Must book by May 31 to take advantage of this incredible deal!
