The Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens are botanical gardens located between Reed College and the Eastmoreland Golf Course in Southeast Portland, Oregon. Established in 1950 the gardens have been an oasis of natural beauty for Portland photographers. The gardens host a select number of weddings each season, with guests milling through the lovely grounds surrounding the reception tent. The natural Crystal Springs Lake is a lovely backdrop for a wedding ceremony and the Rhodoendron garden boasts two other wedding sites according to your preference. The on-site exhibit hall provides a convenient wedding prep spot with close access to the lovely duck pond and pedestrian bridge. On warm summer days, the cool shade of the gardens is a welcome respite and truly an ideal outdoor wedding venue.
Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden Engagement
Anthony and Alexandra are getting married tomorrow and Daniel had the opportunity to photograph their romantic Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden engagement session. They began their portrait session at the beautiful sprawling gardens and if you’re local and haven’t been there yet, we hope these photos will convince you. And maybe even convince you to take us with you for your engagement too!
