Celebration of Life Venue Near Portland

We offer a flat rate of $325 an hour for such events booked within 3 weeks of the gathering or for midweeks (Monday – Thursday) booked further in advance.   (Maximum capacity is 125.) This includes all the tables and chairs you’ll need, whether you want everyone seated “chapel style” or at tables and chairs – or a mix of the two.  An altar table or other frontal, a lectern, and use of our sound system are also included, with a microphone and music system that will take your playlist.  A screen and projector is also available at a small rental charge if you wish to have an AV presentation.

You can even hold the ceremony outside (weather permitting) and then move inside for the refreshments.

Many people have delighted in the garden view from our Conservatory as well as the wonderful light through its many windows and skylights.  This can be an appropriately calm and yet positive environment for such an often sad occasion, when there is enough darkness without having to gather in a room or chapel without natural light.

We look forward to being here for you at this difficult time.
