Two Amazing Specials to Get Married This Summer at The Empress Estate!


For our Introductory Wedding Season, we are hosting two amazing opportunities to have your dream wedding this summer at The Empress Estate, a luxurious European-style mansion nested on the hillside of Woodland, Washington. Just 30 minutes from the Portland/Vancouver area, it is surrounded by gorgeous panoramic views of the Columbia River and the entire Lewis River Valley!

Special #1:  Saturday, July 20th 2013 – First Annual Day of Petit Nuptials at The Empress Estate

The Empress is hosting a full day and evening of mini-weddings and vow renewals on Saturday, July 20th. For those budget conscious couples, spontaneous and adventurous lovebirds, or those who don’t want the hassle but still want the romance, this is a wonderful opportunity to tie-the-knot in elegant style. No Las Vegas or courthouse style weddings here! We are including all of the trimmings, and all you need to bring are the guests and the marriage license.
