Think a Portland wedding has to be granola? Think again. The Nines, a Luxury Collection Hotel, flawlessly blends the city’s green lifestyle (farm-to-table cuisine, LEED silver certification) with a chic, urban aesthetic.
The property boasts a prime downtown location, and the 331 guest rooms have a fresh, modern feel with Tiffany-blue daybeds and swank chandeliers.
Prewedding, treat guests to a tour of the Rose City by pedicab, and stop at famed craft breweries like Rogue and Lucky Labrador.
Onsite, welcome-dinner options include The Pantry, an intimate room at Urban Farmer steakhouse, and Departure, the trendy top-floor restaurant with Asian-fusion fare, a premium sake list and views of the skyline and Willamette River. (The outdoor patio also makes a perfect reception spot, weather permitting.)
Host an elegant ceremony and reception in one of the sleek ballrooms, with 18-foot ceilings and Murano-glass chandeliers, keeping it local by serving pinot noir from one of the many nearby wineries.
