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

Patti and PDM Rock!
Plaza De Magdalena was everything we were looking for in a wedding venue. Working with Patti was such a delight! She was so organized, responsive, and fun! She also was able to recommend great vendors who made our wedding everything we ever dreamed of. The venue itself was beautiful. At first we were slightly concerned about having a ceremony of 140 in the courtyard and flipping to the cocktail hour, but when the day of the wedding came, we didn't even notice the flip. The food was absolutely incredible! Doing the menu tasting was a blast and our only regret was not being able to choose everything! Multiple guests said it was the best dinner they'd ever had at a wedding. The staff the day of were exceptional. They worked so hard to execute our vision and everything was done beautifully. If you're looking for a unique, charming, special, personalized wedding venue, Plaza De Magdalena is the venue for you!Sent on 11/28/2018

Amazing experience, wonderful to work with!
Patti and her team were so accommodating and easy to work with. They all made the experience so enjoyable and not stressful at all! Her preferred vendors were incredible to work with as well. The layout of the venue accommodated our guest count of 200 perfectly and it didn't seem cramped at all! It was a really hot day, so it was amazing to have the indoor/outdoor option the entire night. I loved the getting ready room where my (now) husband and I hid out during cocktail hour and her staff fed us dinner and brought us drinks! They even made us iced coffee in between the champagne. It was the pick me up we needed to get through the marathon of a day. It was perfect, flawless, and amazing. This venue is the perfect tucked away venue to make your day feel extra special. Thank you Patti!Sent on 12/05/2018
