Wedding Venue Visit - Lake Oswego, OR
320 Oswego Pointe Dr, Lake Oswego, OR 97034
I love touring wedding venues throughout Oregon and Washington! It's great to revisit a venue to see new changes or get to know a new wedding venue. Plus, I get to share fun and unique venues with all of you! Recently I was visiting The Foundry at Lake Oswego Pointe in Oregon. The Foundry is just one of many unique venues part of Urban Venues. I was there earlier this year during an open house, with one of my couples to walk the property together. They have been working with Natalia, the venues talented sales & marketing manager. She was on hand with other staff to answer any questions.

According to the plaque out front from the Oswego Heritage Council, The Foundry building was previously the home of the Oregon Iron & Steel Company. Capable of producing 50 tons of pig iron a day, the smelter began in 1888, and would consume 1.3 acres of old-growth Douglas fir as fuel as day. Oregon Iron and Steel Company was instrumential in extending the railroad line from Portland to Oswego around Elk Rock. WHile declining prices closed it's doors in 1894, the pipe foundry 500 yards away continued producing until 1920 for the Portland water system.

It's always fun to visit venues with my couples. It allows us to talk through logistics, photo ops, and just continue to get to know each other better. For this walk through, future Husband and Husband, Brandon and Travis also brought along some members of their wedding party. A few extra hands to help hold the measuring tape never hurts.
This property has many great options for photos. First of course is the promenade, with it's long bridge that leads you to the curvy circular hardwood deck over the river. The riverside also offers large trees, greenery and iron benches adorning the cites name. It is a short walk over to the River Front Amphitheater and Garden Patio. The amphitheater has a small dock that will let you walk down so you are even with the water. And the last little gem is a unique stone sculpture just steps from the front entrance.
