Reviews & Feedback: Tricia @ Lan Su

I cannot wait until photos Tricia’s wedding at Lan Su Chinese Garden are post-ready, but I can still share this effusive email Tricia sent Sales Manager/Event Coordinator Karen Rich. Vibrant Table provided catering, creative direction, floral and decor for this intimate wedding featuring a fusion of Pan-Asian cuisine and event design.

Dear Karen,

Lan Su Chinese Garden, Portland Chinese Garden

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Reflecting back, the overall experience from start to finish was more than enjoyable (if there is such a thing) than I could have believed possible. When I think of the actual wedding and talk to anyone of the guests that were there – we all unanimously agree that its production was Amazing – everything was Flawless  (the tranquility and beauty of the sound produced by the Chinese folk musicians; the mind blowing talent, energy and excitement that the taiko drummers in their bright costumes doing acrobatics while performing the harmonic drumming inter-mixed with a sweet flute; the taste and aromas of the complex food selection that we wanted – which over a week later my guests are still compliementing me on for the choice of the amazing chef / caterers – was flawless, perfect and beyond pleasurable to the pallate and tastebuds; the flowers were undescribably beyond what I could have imagined – textures, textures and more fantastic textures intermingled with beautiful bright colors and tantalizing fragrances brought brightness, happiness and the inviting feeling to all the right locations; the entire evening the staff was perfectly on que with what, when and where we wanted them to be which allowed our guests to “not notice them” but to rather enjoy the evening and all its splendor; your bartenders made our complicated saketini’s drinks perfectly and made certain to keep the guests laughing and their drinks filled without any delay; the tenting, moonballs, table settings and all of the detailed decorations throughout added to the memorable reflections of that evening; the band guiding and instructing the guests throughout the evening in a subtle way that none of guest recall them doing so, followed by the super fun dance area and music that we all enjoyed; the sparklers glimmering in the guests hands as they wished us a good luck fair-well).  Karen, the detailed production was a success because of your help and guidance.  My hat is off to you and much gratitude to you for ALL OF YOUR input and preparation in making that day a success for me, Dave and all of our guests.

You, Page and Vibrant Table (chef, servers, bartenders, and staff) all deserve a High Recommendations and a Superb Referral for anyone who is looking for a complete catering company with talented planners / coordinators, floral designers that are brilliantly creative and have an aptitude to bring warmth, happiness and personality with flowers, a team of chefs who cook better than most five star restaurants, a team of staff who are very efficient and professional and un-noticeable, and diligent day of coordinators who prepare and review in advance for to ensure things run smoothly.   Karen,  I thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
