Weddings on the Portland Spirit are always unique. Guests board the vessel and work their way to the top deck to be seated for the wedding ceremony. Within moments of departure, the wedding ceremony begins as the ship makes its way along the Willamette River. Toward the end of their wedding ceremony, the newlywed grooms celebrated their love with a dove release. Accompanied by both of their mothers, wicker baskets were opened to release the doves into the air. As the doves filled the sky, they joined up with each other and flew home. It is such a unique experience to witness in person and quite memorable for guests. Make sure to check out Bright Eyes Doves to learn more about this unique experience for weddings.
Following the wedding ceremony on the Portland Spirit, guests headed to the lower level for cocktails and dinner. Guests are treated to a wonderful meal, gorgeous views of the Portland skyline, and a fun evening aboard the ship. When considering a venue for your wedding celebration, make sure to consider the Portland Spirit.
