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.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Aug 15, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Aug 15, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Aug 15, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
