White Pioneer Wedding Chapel & Belfrey – Voted Oregon Best Wedding Venue

A complete wedding venue with an authentic pioneer history with modern ambiances: As you walk towards a simplistic wooden white wedding chapel, the smells of oak wood waft through the chapel and a 127-year-old bell rings through your ears. This is Hubbard Chapel where the strong sound of the bell can be heard from large distances, marking the important event of the day. Pioneer chapels are very scarce in Oregon, especially ones that still hold the past in their image. Affordable Dream Wedding at Hubbard Chapel is located in the pioneer town of Hubbard, planted between the two largest cities in Oregon: Portland and Salem. Many guests find this location to be very convenient because the distance is not too long.

What Makes a Wedding Special? How Does a Bride Plan for Such an Event? Making Your Wedding an Affordable Dream Wedding.

What makes a wedding special? Is it money?  No.

Is it doing what your friends did ?  No.

It’s about making it your special day. We have won “Wedding Venue of the Year” three times in a row and what we believe brides really want is their own special day. A day that bring their family and friends in from the present and past to meet and enjoy the time with their spouses family and old friends.  A wedding should feel very warm inside and be a joyous occasion.

From the venue to the bride’s dress, everything should be welcoming, open and fun. Even though it is not as important as the ceremony itself, this might just be the most important day of your life. Our best advice is to simply try to enjoy the entire journey, the time with family, because this great event will pass rather fast and the memories will be significant and long lasting.
