Local Charm:

There’s something special about celebrating your love in a local treasure. Choosing Hoyt Arboretum for your elopement means immersing yourselves in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Surrounded by towering trees you’ll create timeless memories against a backdrop that reflects the region’s natural splendor.

Convenience Redefined:

Eloping at Hoyt Arboretum is a breeze when it comes to convenience. Located just minutes away from downtown Portland, you can seamlessly transition from your intimate ceremony to exploring the vibrant city for a post-wedding celebration. Say “I do” amidst the tranquility of the arboretum and then easily access a plethora of restaurants, hotels, and entertainment options for the remainder of your special day. It’s also a great option if you’re looking for a variety of scenery; you could also head out for a waterfall adventure in the Columbia River Gorge after your vow exchange.

Easy Accessibility:

One of the key advantages of choosing Hoyt Arboretum as your elopement venue is its accessibility. Unlike remote locations that may pose logistical challenges, the arboretum offers a welcoming environment with well-maintained paths and trails. Whether you’re planning an intimate ceremony with you closest family and friends or a private ceremony with just the two of you, you and your guests will appreciate the ease of access to this enchanting natural haven.
