About Franciscan Gardens

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
  • Altar/arches
  • Chairs
  • Cleanup
  • Dance floor
  • Event rentals
  • Furniture
  • Lighting/sound
  • Setup

    Delicious Catering and Great Staff

    The moment we walked into Franciscan Gardens, I knew this was the place we would be getting married! My now husband was very kind in letting me take the reins in most of the planning, and I wanted to have a garden feeling outdoor wedding. The tall greenery of this venue is breathtaking and once the lantern lights go up, the centerpieces glowing, it was honestly the most perfect setting. Melissa and Haley were both very helpful and instrumental on helping us get everything finalized and making revision after revision to the contract. The final meeting to pick all of the little details went really smoothly, they were there for the taste testing, and made sure to answer all of our questions and concerns along the way. As far as the catering… We still have people telling us this was the best steak they had ever had at a wedding! During the tasting we were suspicious how they could make all of the food taste as delicious as it did for just the two of us for over 100 people but I must say that it was (all bias aside) probably the most delicious menu ever! The catering and bartending staff was perfect and even dedicated one waiter to the bride and groom for the whole evening to keep us boozed up and partying all night without having to stand in line for a drink or a bite. Thank you everyone!!

    First I wanted to get married on a beach until I came to this venue. It was perfect, and magical. The space was perfect and there is not much more you have to do to make it a beautiful wedding. I wanted to keep it simple and it still turned out incredibly beautiful. The backdrop for pictures when you’re standing at the alter is breath taking! The hanging lanterns are a perfect touch! You can’t beat beautiful fountains as a decoration. But I can’t tell you how many people came up to me after to tell me how amazing the food was! I was beyond pleased with everything! Sarah also is so fun to work with. She caters to you and makes sure that every one is happy. She’s professional and easy to work with! I would do it a million times over at this venue if I could!

    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!
