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

    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!

    My husband and I had our wedding at Franciscan Gardens last month and it was everything that we dreamed of for our big day! Melissa and Haley are SO organized, sweet, and knowledgeable. They truly made the entire process from the initial planning to the little details of our day fun and stress free. It was really nice to have a venue that gave you a vendor suggestion list to choose from if you wanted. All of our vendors except one were from that list which made it easy because they were super familiar with the venue. I loved every single second of our wedding and HIGHLY recommend Franciscan Gardens as a venue. You will not be disappointed!

    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!
