About Us

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.
