Hidden gem - the best place in Portland for an indoor wedding!!! - An Eventective User from Portland, OR

We chose the German American Society for several reasons. We needed a place that could accommodate 175 people indoors, a place where we could have both a wedding ceremony space and a separate reception space, a place that was attractive and affordable, a place that would allow us to decorate the day before and a place that allowed us to choose our own catering situation. German American Society checked all the boxes!! But there were some extra benefits. First, the place was absolutely gorgeous inside. Oh my gosh!!! We have driven by this place a hundred times and never imagined how beautiful it was inside. Two, the dance floor is huuuge!! Three, and best of all, there was Margie. Margie is the event person for German American Society and she is a GEM!!!! From our first meeting onward, she was the best person I've ever worked with when putting on an event. There are not enough words to truly explain how awesome she is!!! I felt this way before the wedding, but afterwards, I am even more impressed. My day-of wedding coordinator was a no-show. I suddenly had to change my role from mother-of-the-bride to wedding coordinator. I quickly delegated what seemed like countless details, and Margie had my back throughout the entire ordeal. She was so encouraging all evening and often filled in whenever she could. She made this the best experience I could have possibly imagined!! I was so thankful, I ended up donating some of our wedding supplies to the G.A. Society in appreciation for how amazing Margie was from the very first day we met her. I find myself trying to think of other events I could have there!! If you are considering the German American Society for your wedding, I guarantee you will have an amazing experience!!!! Do NOT hesitate!!!
