Portland’s White House B&B And Events Venue Makes Makes Room For Boomer Brides

Portlands White House is following a recent trend by creating special wedding packages for baby boomers. Couples on their second or third marriages are seeking intimate, luxury experiences.

Portland, United States - August 1, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Portland’s White House, a luxury bed & breakfast set in a historic Greek Revival mansion, is now offering special wedding packages aimed at “boomer brides.” The popular wedding venue is packaging wedding ceremonies, receptions and overnight stays together to offer older couples an elegant event without “breaking the bank,” says owner Frank Groff.

“While marriages among Millennials are on the decline, surprisingly there is an uptick in weddings among Baby Boomers,” said Groff, who with his partner, David Krause, renovated the 1911 property to the tune of $1 million when the purchased it in 2018. “Many of these couples are on their second, third or fourth marriages and are eschewing church ceremonies in favor of alternative settings. Most are looking for more smaller events with close friends and family rather large scale spectacles, so they are turning to venues like Portland’s White House. And the fact that we offer overnight accommodations is a plus for those who are seeking an overall relaxed, intimate experience rather than a simple ceremony and reception”

According to the latest Gallup poll on marriage, 20% of Millenials 18 to 30 are married, compared to 32% of Gen X-ers and 40% of Baby Boomers when they were the same age. Also, the divorce rate is growing among boomers and many of them are forming new romantic relationships that result in marriage.

Portland’s White House, which holds a place of honor on the National Historic Registry, was built for Oregon timber baron Robert Lytle, who spared no expense on its construction. He made it virtually fireproof with metal lath and plaster and tile roofs then carefully installed the very finest materials, including mahogany accents, wood floors and tasteful stained glass windows crafted by the Povey Brothers who were known as “The Tiffany of the Northwest.”

Groff and Krause spent $1 million undertaking the extensive remodel of both the Main House and Carriage House that feature 9 ensuite bedrooms, grand common areas and an 85-seat ballroom that is ideal for wedding receptions, corporate affairs, birthday celebrations, etc.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Oct 1, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Oct 1, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Oct 1, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Oct 1, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
