Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is a unique seven-acre garden containing an outstanding collection of rare species and hybrid rhododendrons, azaleas, and other lesser known shrubs, as well as many companion plants and unusual trees.
This internationally recognized garden is a beautiful place to host your wedding May through September. A spring-fed lake surrounds much of the garden, attracting countless waterfowl which nest and feed in this natural habitat. In summer, trees, shrubs, and perennials add an abundance color.
Visitors stroll by three waterfalls via two picturesque bridges and wander down shaded paths to Crystal Springs Lake. Marveling at the reach of the fountain spray, exploring the garden, and watching the sun set over Portland’s West Hills are favorite pastimes. Long regarded as a photographer’s dream, this tranquil setting makes it easy to forget that downtown Portland is only minutes away.

Best Place to Get Married
This Venue was perfect! It held all of our people comfortably to dance, photo booth, eat, drink, and play games. The coordinator was wonderful! Couldn't have asked for anything better.Sent on 06/25/2019
We did have to bring in the crew for set up and take down but that was made clear and we were ready.

Garden ceremony in the Woodlands location
The garden was the perfect place for our ceremony. It was beautiful and set up perfectly. We rented the chairs from the garden which made set up and take down a breeze. We didn’t have to worry about anything!Sent on 07/01/2019

Rachel is the venue coordinator for Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens and she is just as nice as can be! She was extremely helpful during the entire planning, day of, and follow-up process. She responded immediately to emails and always answered all of my questions. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and was the setting of our dream wedding.Sent on 09/27/2018
Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden's reply:Anaka, you are lovely. Your wedding was gorgeous. Thanks for choosing CSRG. Come back to visit! xoxox
This is a great location for everything from engagement sessions to bridal portraits. And while you can hold weddings on the grounds, it's also a great spot if your wedding ceremony and reception venues aren't photogenic -- bring them to Crystal Springs and you can have beautiful photography! One of the things I like best about Crystal Springs is that it looks beautiful any time of year. No matter what the season or weather, there will be beautiful places to make photographs. And even on busy weekends, you can always find a little privacy where it looks like you are the only people in the park. Highly recommended!
We absolutely love working with and at the Rhododendron Gardens! You can't beat the beautiful flora surrounding you on your wedding day!
