Event Gallery

Planning the event couldn’t have been easier! Matt was on top of everything, was very insightful and had great suggestions. It’s always a comfort working with someone that wants to make the bride and groom happy, no matter what the task or demand. The catering staff ROCK IT!! They were so attentive to me and my guests! Aaron and I have been saying everyday how PERFECT our wedding was. I’m so proud of how everything came together and a lot of that credit MUST go to all the staff at McMenamins that helped to make our day the way it was.
