    Lan Su Garden is a beautiful setting for a private party, even in Portland winter. Anna was exceptional. She was extremely responsive and made excellent suggestions that made the party even better. Highly recommended.

    We had a fantastic experience working with Anna and the rest of the team from Lan Su. From the beginning, communicating with them was easy and always timely. They were very flexible with us in scheduling our walk-through and rehearsal, and helped these things happen around our family's needs.

    From a planning perspective, we loved that elements like vendor rentals and catering are really streamlined, which helped us to make choices and finalize those details quickly, without a lot of fuss. And, as a location the place is just stunning! You hardly need to decorate, there is so much character and charm already to be had. Our guests cannot stop talking about what a lovely and magical place we had found, and we couldn't agree more.

This is an AWESOME venue for us. Just so cool to look at. Very serene. It has so many nooks and crannies for couples to take photos in. We love the DJ setup location here too. It is a special covered area with a dedicated power supply and a view of the whole property. We can easily setup our DJ gear in one place and rotate the speakers to any part of the garden. The staff here is very helpful and friendly too. If you are wanting a really DIFFERENT venue that makes you feel you are not in the heap of Portland when you actually are, this is the place.

Cupcake Jones Cupcake Jones Wedding Cakes

One of the most gorgeous wedding and event venues in the entire region. I have loved every event I have attended and worked on in this amazing place. It is pure serenity in the middle of the city. And the photos you'll get? Amazing. The event staff here is always over the top helpful in making sure everyone is happy. We love working with them! Thanks Lan Su Garden! ~Lisa @ Cupcake Jones
