Park weddings are super popular especially this time of year. And Portland has some of the best choices in any urban area on the map. But keep in mind that effective July 1st, smoking became prohibited. The ban includes weed. As of the 16th, the commissioner’s office was on the fence about enforcement and fines but at the very least, smokers will be asked to leave the park area. Don’t take a chance on dampening your party spirit – let guests know the rules upfront. Speaking of party spirit, take a look at some of my favorite PDX park weddings: World Forestry Center, Botanical Gardens, Cathedral Park, Council Crest, Sellwood Park.
