About Us

Couples choosing to wed at the Franciscan Gardens will find a ranch wedding venue in the Orange County, California area. A vintage atmosphere envelopes this historic loft space, giving an elegant air to couples’ weddings. Outdoor events that take place surrounded by lush walls of greenery and exposed brick await couples and their guests at this venue, located just 12 minutes from the Dana Point Harbor.

Facilities and Capacity
Guest lists can include a maximum of 200 friends and family members for a couple’s wedding at the Franciscan Gardens. Large wooden gates swing open to a charming courtyard, where string lights are hung overhead and the concrete underfoot is sturdy. Walls of this courtyard crawl with thick greenery, giving the space plenty of natural garden influence. Overhead, strings of lights can be supplemented with lanterns and a wooden pergola commands attention to the couple should they choose to exchange vows below it. This outdoor space can be used for ceremonies, receptions or a combination of the two events. Indoor getting-ready spaces ensure that couples have a private space in which to prepare for the wedding.

Services Offered
In addition to ceremonies and receptions, couples can also host their bridal showers and engagement parties in this garden space. Amenities such as onsite parking and a bridal suite keep couples and guests comfortable leading up to the day’s events. Other wedding services and items offered by this venue include:

  • Aisle runners

  • This venue is beautiful, however, as many beautiful venues-it comes at a cost. The venue more pricey than I was able to afford, but very accommodating and nice to work with.
