Accommodations with both indoor and outdoor spaces provide all the beauty and space of the outdoors plus a controlled environment inside. This is especially important for Spring and Fall events in Portland’s wet climate. For weddings, this type of venue is particularly popular. The ceremony is often held outdoors while the reception moves inside the building. This simplifies the set up for the reception and also allows the party to continue after dark.
