Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden
Wedding Venues We Love
-By Vancouver Wedding DJs-Airwaves Music
In the unrelenting core of bustling Downtown Vancouver a secret oasis of oriental beauty exists hidden away.
The Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden truly is a window into to another world.
It deservingly holds the title for the National Geographic “top city garden in the world”
The garden, built and designed by Chinese artisans using traditional techniques will bring you back to 15th century China, to the Ming dynasty.
Original materials imported from ancient china give the garden it’s authenticity; large Tai Hu rock formations (thought to evoke supernatural powers), beautiful broken rice bowls in mosaic style patterns and jade green water bring the lush garden to life.
Due to it’s magic this garden is a coveted venue for weddings rain or shine all year round. In the rain it transforms into a mystical land smelling of rich moss and shining from polished stones.
Come summer time our garden oasis erupts into life, flowers fully in bloom, and coy fish swimming in the pond.
A non profit organization this garden hosts many art shows, unique entertainment, weddings and, in summer weeks, a nightly concert series amply named the enchanted evenings concert series (July 5th-August 30th)
This year is the 20th anniversary of the enchanting evening concerts, hi-lighting many unique artists, and taking place every Friday night.
With several hidden oasis’s for weddings within the garden, this truly is also a magical place to tie the knot.
