Gorge Crest has been featured in countless magazines and for the past five years has received awards for best wedding venue in the region.
Overlooking Mount Hood in the heart of the Columbia River, Laura and Craig’s Washington wedding took place at Gorge Crest Vineyards. Laura grew up on a farm and took much of her wedding inspiration from her rustic experience. MoscaStudio perfectly captured the carefully curated details like the local flowers in bright yellow and orange, as well as the incredible scenery the venue had to offer.
We choose a destination wedding so that we could give our family and friends an experience they wouldn’t otherwise have. Oregon, and specifically the the town of Hood River, had resonated with us since our first trip there together as a couple. With a region in mind, we wanted to create an open platform for our wedding day – an outdoor venue in which we could bring together the people we love most. Keeping the ceremony, dinner and reception outdoors was important to us, so we really kept the flow of the space in mind. A long U-shaped table would foster new relationships. A satellite bar would keep people on the dance floor. One of our biggest goals was not only to bring people together to a beautiful location, but one that would keep them talking…with each other.
Gorge Crest Vineyards in Underwood, Washington, showcases a spectacular view of Mount Hood and acres of vineyards, orchards and forest. Event areas are extensive, including a newly renovated traditional winery building, an indoor space with a stone fireplace, an outdoor dance floor, manicured lawns and cobblestone patios—all with a mountain view.
