Your dream come true in a venue!
The venue is gorgeous and has a white brick wall that is absolutely breath taking! The staff is amazing and very attentive, I got multiple compliments through out the night about how helpful the staff was and they would occasionally check in with me to see how I was doing. Truly an amazing place!Sent on 12/09/2019

Plaza de Magdalena Wedding
Plaza de Magdalena is such a beautiful venue! At the beginning of the year my then fiancé (now husband) and I were scouting out different locations in the San Juan Capistrano area for our fall 2019 wedding. We came across Plaza de Magdalena, and we knew this was the place. We could not have found a more perfect venue for both our ceremony and reception of 135 people. The courtyard setting for our wedding ceremony was magical. Patti (the onsite event coordinator) and her team are wonderful to work with. Since communication is so important to a stressed out bride, I can’t tell you how appreciative I was that Patti would get back to me so fast with the answers to my questions. She was always accommodating to all my ideas, and last minute changes. Sun Dried Tomatoes is the caterer for this venue. All my guests had such great compliments about the delicious food at dinner. In addition, everyone enjoyed the wonderful appetizers and open bar during cocktail hour.
Patti’s staff working our wedding was amazing, and everything on the day of our wedding was flawless. My husband and I highly recommend Plaza de Magdalena for any event!Sent on 12/09/2019

Amazing - hidden gem in San Juan Capistrano
A beautiful venue for our wedding – definitely a hidden gem in San Juan Capistrano. We had our ceremony, cocktail reception, and dinner/dancing there (with 160 guests). The staff was professional to work with and ensured a wonderful outcome. Before our big day, Patti accommodated last-minute menu changes and provided gracious windows of time for our vendors to set-up. On the day of, everything was set-up to perfection, and the entire Plaza de Magdalena team went above and beyond. Once the ceremony ended, the Plaza de Magdalena team swiftly and seamlessly changed the outside courtyard from ceremony seating to a cocktail reception…quickly opening the bars and passing trays of delicious appetizers. The food was delicious, and the Plaza de Magdalena team did an amazing job making sure our guests’ needs were met. We had children at our wedding, and they plated the children first, knowing our tiny guests would be ready eat. Another nice touch was a member of the team brought us drinks and appetizers as we waited in the bridal suite before our “grand entrance.” We opted for a buffet for dinner and wow, it flowed better than we expected. Our guests were served quickly, the food was hot, and was just as scrumptious as it was during the menu tasting. Many of our guests told us what a great time they had, complemented the friendliness of the staff, and how they really enjoyed the food. We are very glad that we had our wedding at this venue. It was like having a wedding in an Italian villa. We certainly recommend Plaza de Magdalena to anyone looking for a beautiful, affordable wedding venue.Sent on 05/12/2019
