Columbia Gorge Wedding Services
We love to pamper our brides, grooms, and guests. Customer service is what we hang our hat on.
“I just wanted to tell you folks what a great job I feel you did with the wedding. You have such a beautiful place and you really have a good handle on things and know how to run activities and keep things flowing smoothly. It was a great day to watch my son marry the love of his life, I appreciated all your help and guidance that you gave the kids. Keep up the good work.”
- Gary Beauchamp

What Makes the Balch Stand out from Other Venues?
At the Balch we know your wedding day is one of the most important events in your lifetime. It's not only a time to marry the one you love but a time to bring together your nearest and dearest.
You are creating memories for your families and friends that they'll cherish for generations to come.
We create the background for you to capture these memories on film while creating lasting experiences and stories that will be told and reminisced about in the future. We're not corporate - we're personal.
You Can Easily Personalize Your Wedding & Event
We love the individual styles, personality, and personal touches that our brides and grooms bring to their day.
Certainly we have a structure for you - it makes your personalization easier! We have created the palate on which you can paint.
We encourage you to add meaningful touches from antique linens to a Frank Sinatra Tribute band!
We Hang our Hat on Hotel and Wedding Reviews
We are a wedding venue AND a hotel. As such we know that the best advertising you cannot buy is that of a kind word and recommendation.
Our reviews on Trip Advisor, Yelp, and Wedding Wire are great places for you to sneak a peak at us.
Why don't we pop up at the top of the Wedding Wire listing? Because we don't pay to be there! We let our guests do the talking; we're not buying our way to the top.
Loads of Sunshine for your Event, Wedding, or Hotel Stay!
Imagine living in an area with over 300 days of sunshine each year. That's Dufur!
Your guests will marvel at the beauty of Oregon during their drive to the Balch. Rolling hills, open spaces, panoramic views, and the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic area are just some of the highlights. Scroll on over to our gallery to see wedding photos from May - November.
