What Clients Are Saying
“The Visit Portland process was very effective and helped us most efficiently find a location on short notice. We owe a big thanks to you and your organization.”
-Mike Santarelli, Fiber Materials Inc. August 2020
“Kate McDonough really listened to our vision for a post-ceremony family gathering and sent out requests for proposals to the venues in the area who might be a good fit. We received back dozens of inquiries and package options from venues all over the greater Portland area. We didn’t hit the nail on the head the first time, so Kate was more than happy to help us restructure our proposal and find the perfect match. We were able to connect with vendors faster than if we did google searches on our own. I can’t believe this service is absolutely free to couples! If you’re planning a wedding or event in the greater Portland area, I highly recommend reaching out about your event!”
