Hood River, sitting along side the Columbia River some 60 miles east of Portland on Interstate Highway 84, offers magnificent views for your special day! Long renowned for its magnificent setting in the Columbia River Gorge and its scenic drives through the picturesque fruit orchards of the Hood River Valley, this town of 4,500 has become the Northwest’s most popular location for windsurfing and kiteboarding.
The windsurfing community contributes millions of dollars to the local economy and has helped spawn the growth of other destination-type activities including biking, hiking, fishing, golf, wine tasting and farm and garden tours.

The scenic beauty of the Gorge attracts hundreds of outdoor wedding each summer. With views of Mt Hood, the Hood River Valley and Mt Adams, the Columbia Gorge is one of the top wedding sites in the Northwest.
