Weddings
Lan Su Chinese Garden stands alone as a breathtaking, one-of-a-kind wedding site. A bridged lake, waterfall, winding pathways, exquisite pavilions and lush gardens provide a stunning stage for sharing your romantic moment-in-time with friends and family. Whether you choose a ceremony followed by a catered wedding reception or an intimate wedding rehearsal dinner, Lan Su offers the ultimate, unique experience.

As the most authentic Chinese garden outside of China, Lan Su has become THE place to for those in search of a location of lasting impressions. The exquisite garden requires no additional décor, minimizing cost and creating the “green” wedding valued by Portlanders.

Guests wander pathways with a glass of wine, later moving to a buffet dinner staged in a courtyard and often ending with dancing on the main terrace as the moon is reflected in the lake.

Your caring and knowledgeable event staff team will help you envision your occasion, guide you through the details and be on-site during your event.

If you are looking for something dreams are made of you could not do better. We had to change venues at the last minute and after many phone calls Anna Espiritu from the Garden was the first to respond. The LanSu Garden has been our favorite spot in Portland for years. It didn't occur to us that we should get married there until we received her call back--and then it transported us to a higher level of understanding and appreciation for what we were considering. What an honor it would be for us and our guests to have such a lovely place to celebrate!! She also said she could arrange for a caterer and all would be taken care of. Can you imagine such an offer? Anna held my hand through the entire planning and was also there for the event. The Garden has so many beautiful areas to utilize for the various aspects of the wedding. With Anna we came up with a lovely flow throughout the garden creating an evening's experience which took full advantage of the contrasting areas highlighting the beauty and nuance of Lan Su for all of us to appreciate. The food provided by Food in Bloom Catering was magnificent--so stunning to look at and so delicious! We would have been happy for the venue alone but the food put it over the top. All aspects of the service and the details of the event were conducted with great professionalism. It ended up being the most beautiful wedding, one we could not have imagined. Many thanks to Anna, the Garden and Food In Bloom for the most memorable evening of our lives. Our guests are still talking about it. One more thing, we really felt pleased knowing that the rental fees would help with the overhead of such an incredible historic site in Portland. We were surprised that so many people from the area had not visited the garden but not at all surprise by how impressed they were! Do not hesitate, your wedding here will give you great joy and will give you beautiful memories throughout your life!

The garden was beautiful, and Krystal, our event coordinator, was a pleasure to work with. I loved the way we were able to make use of so many different spaces in the garden, but still feel like a single space since you could see everyone across the lake in the middle.

My wedding felt unique and personal thanks to the stunning backdrop of the Chinese garden, it was a truly MAGICAL experience! Having a buffet with open seating really worked in the garden setting; everyone enjoyed the freedom to roam the grounds and discover the beauty of garden at their own pace and on an intimate level. Our guests loved the idea of being at a wedding surrounded by fine artchitecture and natural beauty. The garden was a fun environment for both young and older guests (and especially children). Everyone stayed interested because the garden made such an impact on their evening.

The other very important element of having your wedding at Lan Su is getting to work with their coordinator Michele Starry who is an invaluable resource. She has so many great suggestions on how best to use the space to fit the needs of your event, and how to use the time wisely. She works very hard to satisfy and help her clients, is responsive and professional. Totally ON TOP OF IT! She is also kind and supportive. My wedding went smoothly thanks to Michele Starry. I am a restaurant manager in NYC and work many weddings myself. I have rarely come across a manager as intense and efficient as Michele, I was very lucky to have her in charge of such an important day for us.

Thank you to Michele and all of the staff at Lan Su for making my wedding day so special!

If you want a cool and un-stuffy wedding, definitely consider Lan Su as a top place to check out.

If you want a UNIQUE wedding that you and your guests will love,this is the place.
The venue itself is breath taking and entertaining.

My favorite part is I had to add nothing!

What I mean is -I did not have to spend thousands on flowers and

tacky/ugly decorations to try to fill the space. It was already done.

Michele gave me many nights of peaceful sleep, I asked her for her input

and opinions-she has done many events and has experience with all the vendors I chose.

I had a blast and was not worried about a thing. It was perfect.

Michele and Gary at the Lan Su Chinese Garden did better than we could have hoped for on our wedding day, we could not have asked for more. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to have a wedding in the Portland area, they will take care of everything and work with you however you want to handle things.
