Historic Portland Wedding Venue: The Victorian Belle Mansion featured in The Oregonian

We were honored to have been visited by Janet Eastman, a journalist for The Oregonian, for this wonderful feature that shares the storied history of The Victorian Belle Mansion while celebrating its current incarnation as a Portland wedding venue. Today, this fully-restored Queen Anne sits regally on 2.5 acres of immaculate gardens and is considered one of Portland, Oregon’s most enchanting wedding and event venues.

Historians believe that Victorian Belle, also known as the David Cole House, “was the first Portland-area residence to have indoor electricity and hot-and-cold running water supplied by a windmill-powered water pump. Another first: Rooms were vented to a wood-burning stove to provide central heating. A voice-powered intercom, similar to tube systems found on ships, summoned servants…

We invite you to learn more about the origination and history of the Victorian Belle, as well as explore photographs of many of the intricate details that make the estate so special, in the published article: Storied 1885 Queen Anne mansion finds new life as wedding and prom venue.

To learn more about hosting your wedding or other special celebration at the Victorian Belle, please contact us.

A little sneak peak from a recent styled shoot. Loving this new, unobstructed view of the house! 🖤
