A couple of weeks ago I got to play harp for a wedding at the Cornelius Pass McMenamins, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to review this lovely wedding venue. I have played at both the Grand Lodge and the Edgefield McMenamins before, but Cornelius Pass has a special rustic charm that set it apart!
The wedding took place in a secluded section of the grounds. Fortunately, the weather was perfect, so I didn’t need the tent that McMenamins was holding in readiness against the possibility of rain!
There were charming nooks and crannies for the wedding photos!
The most unique aspect of the Cornelius Pass McMenamins is the Octagonal Barn. This historic structure is very rustic inside – with rough wooden floors and open beam ceilings, but paired with formal cloth covered tables and candles the effect is stunning! I definitely recommend checking this one out!
