I'll start by noting the couple issues I had with the venue, but it did not sour our event whatsoever. When we first booked Dr. SYS, we had a few issues of miscommunication because they were in transition and we were getting passed to a few different people. In the end, 3 people later, we ended up with Katherine, who was PHENOMENAL. She definitely made up for anything negative we experienced in the beginning.

We had our wedding in the Hall of One Hundred Rivers. Firstly, the venue is beautiful. No matter where you look, you see a piece of history and natural beauty. The greenery, rocks, architecture, water features - all amazing. We had set all of our chairs outside and right before the ceremony, it was raining on and off with sprinkles here and there. We weren't really sure what to do. Katherine was flexible and was telling me that we could move the chairs in anytime I wished to and she could be able to do it quickly. Unable to make up my mind, because I really wanted to get married outside, we decided last minute to move all the chairs inside. She did it so quickly most people didn't even notice! Luckily we did because it started to POUR about 5 minutes after. Katherine was so quick and efficient at doing so that it didn't even affect anything.

Everything went smoothly and it turned out better than I had expected. The photos in the garden turned out spectacular and some of our best pictures were taken there.

Thank you, Katherine, for jumping in and smoothing things out. We couldn't have done it without you!

How often does an anticipated event turn out far better than what you'd imagined it would be? Our wedding was just that.

Our ceremony at SYS was magical in a way we could have never dreamed. The setting of the ceremony itself was fabulous and the opportunity to explore the garden was an unusual and lovely treat, many of our guests told us later. The silent star/maestro of the whole event was the gracious, uber-capable Sacha Chin, the garden's event manger. She made our wedding phenomenal.

Years from now, when I remember how fabulous my wedding was, I will attribute most it to the players and the stage (Sacha and SYS).... and, of course, my wonderful husband, family and friends.

I highly recommend the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden for a wedding. Witnessing a wedding take place on my site visit, I knew instantly it was definitely the place to have the intimate, special and picturesque wedding I've been visioning in my mind. On the day of my wedding, all my guests were amazed at the beauty and privacy of the Gardens. No one imagined such a beautiful place existed in the in the heart of Chinatown! The Gardens was also a perfect backdrop to all my wedding photos! Finally, working with Sacha Chin was also a great experience, she was very knowledgeable of the wedding industry in Vancouver, very patient with all my questions and always delivered her service with a smile.

This is a gorgeous, classical Chinese garden located in Chinatown in the heart of Vancouver. When you are in the garden, you feel like you are somewhere in China, not at all in a busy Canadian city!
Sacha Chin was great to work with. She is very friendly and happy to answer any questions.
Your guests will love this venue and you will have an amazing backdrop for photos.

The gardens were an absolutely spectacular place to hold our wedding. We had to make the booking before seeing the venue as we were doing this all from Holland (8,000 kms away!!!), but even booking from far away was extremely easy. My emails were answered quickly and professionally. I was given a choice of ceremony locations as well as the option to change if necessary (after seeing them). They took care of everything for me including the last minute chair additions. The wedding coordinatior Sacha made sure that everything went smoothly. She was so unbelievably helpful. I definitely recommend this venue, it was a great experience

We held a special religious ceremony to celebrate our wedding with our family and freinds at the Dr. Sun Yat Sun Garden. It was an absolutely amazing atmosphere. The staff at the garden worked with us very well as this was the first time such an event had been held there. They worked with me to make the event fit within the budget and they were very kind and curteous.

Our guests talk about this event all the time, and it was a unique experience for everyone.

We hope to hold another such event in the future for our anniversary or something. Such a peaceful, beautiful, and unique atmoshphere no where else to be found in the Lower Mainland.

I absolutely loved having our ceremony at Sun Yat-Sen garden. Even now, more than a year later, we still get compliments from family and friends on how gorgeous the venue was. The garden is so photogenic that every picture we took turned out beautifully. Despite being in Chinatown, it was serene and quiet once you step into the garden. It really was like stepping into another world.
Sacha was great to work with. She made everything so easy and on the day of the wedding, she was on top of things. As a bride, I didn't have to worry about anything other than running mascara. =)
