The Venue Crawl Event is a wonderful opportunity to check out multiple Portland venues and vendors all in one day. Each venue is dressed up beautifully so its full potential can be displayed. Oregon Bride readers voted Alston Mayger Events at The Cosmopolitan Ballroom as their favorite design from the 2023 event. “Being so close to the beautiful glass towers of the Oregon Convention Center, I proposed a 'pretty city' theme to our team at The Cosmopolitan Ballroom. You simply cannot beat that skyline view, and its gorgeous day or night," said Ashley Lachney, Alston Mayger Events.

Pastel floral arrangements complemented the neutral space, creating an romantically elegant design. Another outstanding feature of this location is the remarkable lighting. “When I first saw the room and design, I knew I wanted to showcase how much natural light hits the ballroom throughout the day. There was a lot of soft light during the morning and more dramatic light in the afternoon, giving the design a lovely transformation,” said Rithy Tamba, RT Faith Photography. This location has an array of wonderful qualities; from the beautiful view with amazing lighting to the venue's neutral backdrop, this venue can be transformed into anybody's dream wedding day.
