It’s the single event that begins the rest of your life, so you want it to be incredibly wonderful, it’s a memory you’ll cherish forever.
Lakeside Gardens is situated on seven acres and was created with you in mind. Weddings are our specialty. As you turn down our driveway it is as if you have just entered into another world. A world of enchantment and romance. Lakeside Gardens blends tall cedars, weeping willows, fountains, gazebos and lakes surrounded by a garden paradise. Swans glide across the water. A waterfall gently cascades into the lake. It’s a place of magical beauty.
Lakeside gardens is designed especially for weddings. It features a private brides room with comfortable furnishings and full length mirrors. The masculine grooms room also offers privacy for changing clothes and casual lounging. A knowledgeable event coordinator will work with you from the beginning of your relationship with us through the last hugs and good-byes.
Indoors and out, Lakeside Gardens is picturesque perfection for your wedding day. Each season has its beauty here, from spring’s early blush of pinks and yellows to summer’s exuberant flower gardens, fall’s rich autumnal hues, and finally, winter’s enchanting evergreens.
Evenings at Lakeside Gardens are gorgeous year round, too. At night, the grounds twinkle with multicolored fountains, twinkle lights line the bridges and outline the roof. White landscape lights encircle the lakes and charming outdoor lamps light your way for a romantic nighttime stroll.
During the warmer months, you may choose to marry outside at the Upper Gazebo. You’ll proceed through a pretty white pergola, blanketed in sweetly scented wisteria, to the gazebo. Hanging baskets of flowers and beds of blue salvia and pink begonias adorn the gazebo.
At any time of the year, you may also exchange vows in the terrace Room which can accommodate up to 240 guests seated. Your ceremony can be held under the arched ceiling, overlooking the Upper Lake. Mirrored walls provide lovely panoramic views of the lake.
For smaller, very intimate weddings, you might favor the handsome Fireside Room, with its magnificent fireplace and marble and oak surround.
Please make your reservations as early as possible as dates fill up quickly. We recommend one year to six months in advance, particularly for a summer evening wedding. Enjoy Portland’s garden paradise on your wedding day and watch your dreams come true!
