The Foundry at Oswego Pointe

The Foundry is nestled in downtown Lake Oswego with a stunning view of the Willamette River. In any season or weather, this venue provides several options for ceremonies, receptions and cocktail hour. One of the hallmarks of The Foundry is the promenade built directly above the river. Guests will make their entrance to your ceremony via a bridge that will take them to their seats and provides a beautiful backdrop of the water and beaches. For ceremonies with a higher guest count, the riverfront amphitheater is a stunning alternative.

When asked to describe their venue, they said:

“The Foundry is the quintessential Portland venue, located on the banks of the Willamette River it’s the perfect place to say ‘I-Do”. We have gorgeous riverfront views, beautiful high ceilings, and a gorgeous getting ready suite. We can’t wait to show you our space at The Portland Venue Crawl on Saturday, March 21st.”
