A Vintage Chapel in Southeast Portland, Oregon

June 30th, 2021 COVID 19 UPDATE!

In accordance with the CDC’s  and Governor Kate Brown’s COVID 19 guidelines, we are now able to operate at full capacity of 75 persons!
We are so very excited to be able to allow our guests full and unrestricted access for their special events here at OPC! However, with some strains of COVID 19 still flourishing largely amongst the unvaccinated, we ask that all unvaccinated persons protect themselves and other vulnerable members of our community by wearing a mask when indoors here at OPC.
We are a community resource and acting responsibly on behalf of our community is exceedingly important. We ask our guests to do the same.


Oaks Pioneer Church is an historic and picturesque event and wedding venue in the Sellwood neighborhood of inner Southeast Portland. This little chapel is non-denominational and welcomes all visitors regardless of race, gender, national origin, color, ethnicity, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. The church is a unique and charming place for couples looking for an intimate wedding venue, a vintage wedding venue, and most importantly, a memorable wedding venue. Oaks Pioneer Church is also an affordable place for other special events. Keep us in mind for vow renewals, baptisms and christenings, and memorials and remembrance services. Our exceptional acoustics make us particularly great for live musical performances. 

The church adorns the bluff above Old Oaks Park and the Willamette River. We are nestled among meticulously kept grounds with a rose garden, rhododendrons, Japanese maples, and magnolias, all shaded by towering oak and elm trees. A brick-lined, pebblestone pathway guides guests through the main doors and into the church’s high ceiling interior. Stunning wood craftsmanship reaches from floor to ceiling with antique brass chandeliers adding a warm glow to the ambiance. Stained glass windows are an elegant backdrop to the raised altar, and a period pot-belly stove in the back corner of the little church warms the space on cooler days and evenings .

Eighteen pews allow for seating of up to 75 guests. There is a bathroom and dressing room in the church’s west wing and an organ on the altar allowing for music accompaniment. We are handicap accessible too! The church is available year round and uniquely beautiful in every season.
