This popular combination features an outdoor location for your ceremony with a large indoor facility for the reception. It is available for booking in all seasons. Use of the Grand Hall, located in the J. Frank Schmidt Jr Pavilion, means a built-in backup plan if the weather doesn’t cooperate on your special day. The Grand Hall features a rustic open space perfect for dancing, dinner, and all your wedding’s memorable moments. This indoor space is large enough to accommodate your ceremony if weather requires. 

Located just across from the Grand Hall, the Garden Green features a stunning view overlooking Oregon’s Willamette Valley, with a backdrop featuring an arbor with climbing roses and overlooking the Rose Garden. Surrounding your ceremony is the Peace Garden and a koi pond. For fair-weather weddings this area is often the location of your outdoor ceremony.

Two of our most unique and stunning locations pair together for an entirely outdoor wedding venue at The Oregon Garden. 

Begin your special day in the Silverton Market Garden, a semi-formal garden inspired by French garden design. In the spring and summer, lawn areas are bordered by annuals in bloom. The aptly-named Wedding Garden features a breathtaking arbor of grapes and hops that provides a backdrop for your ceremony.

For your reception, you wedding party will move to the Bosque, which features serene reflecting pools and 40 mature Pacific Sunset maples. The Bosque has room for seated dining, dancing and an amazing view of the sunset and hills across the valley.

Discovery Pavilion in the Rediscovery Forest

Enjoy an intimate and truly Pacific Northwest experience when you get married in our doug-fir-filled Rediscovery Forest!
