Such an adorable Orange County venue! Always a pleasure documenting beautiful events here! Great staff, great location!
Franciscan Gardens is a first class wedding venue. I have had the pleasure to work at this location and they do an amazing job. I highly recommend them to anyone that is planning a wedding.
This is such a pretty venue, and so close to some of my favorite photo spots: The San Juan Mission and the Los Rios District of San Juan. Your photos are sure to be great! And, the food will be divine as the property is owned by 24 Carrots Catering. You can't go wrong choosing Franciscan Gardens!
