The All-Important Wedding Venue

Earlier, we mentioned that the wedding venue will set the mood of the Day. Indeed... In fact, much about the wedding will be judged by its venue. The "where" of the wedding sets a mood from the moment of arrival of the first guest, til the last piece of cake is smuggled into mom and dad's car and the lights go out. That means the venue is important.

And that mood is not a singular matter of the location's physical setting. A gorgeous environment--as massive a Plus as it may be--is not sufficient to ensure an event's success. Along with their exhibiting a wonderfully distinctive identity and beauty, Salem, Oregon wedding venues must function virtually as precision engines in order to ensure the smooth feeding, seating, entertainment and overall comfort of anywhere from a few dozen, to several hundred people of varying ages and physical conditions.

What makes the Salem wedding venues wonderful is that they continue a pattern found along the Willamette River Valley, from Eugene, through Portland. The Oregon State Capitol is a hub to both some of the most scenic areas of the Northwestern United States, as well as a home to a Sampler collection of architecture which exemplifies much of what makes the State so special in this regard. The wedding venues Salem offers to couples reflect an area which is at once a river city and a kingdom of gently rolling hills and vineyards--all the while being a gateway to the volcanic uplands of Central Oregon, as well as a conduit to populous Portland.

In fact, "special" may not fully cover everything which is special about these places--but "just right" may work. For you...
