Beautiful and amazing venue

Lauren was fantastic to work with for our big day. Any questions we had were answered promptly and clearly despite us living in the Bay and only visiting the venue twice before the wedding. Having the all of the food catered by Jay’s and complimentary tasting days was convenient and their preferred vendors list made our lives much easier. The venue was stunning and we could not be happier with how it turned out. Would 100% recommend !

I recently had my ceremony and reception at Serra Plaza on September 3rd, 2017. Working with Mary and her team was truly one of my favorite experiences of planning a wedding. Mary was a complete professional from start to finish. She was so accommodating, responsive, organized, detailed, and overall made me feel at ease with having my event at her venue. Our guests were in complete awe of how beautiful the location was and how we transformed it into our vision and dream for this spectacular day.

From the beginning, the design and look of our event took shape at first sight of Serra Plaza. Seeing the numerous arches and the beautiful Tuscan color palette, we were completely speechless, and understood quickly what we were going to create. We had a long engagement and booked the venue a year and half in advance. While most people do a vintage or rustic look who book this venue, we built our vision as classic with modern touches, a romantic, elegant, ‘black-tie optional’ event. It felt like we were all in Italy in a secluded Villa.

Our family and friends are still raving about our wedding and how absolutely beautiful and perfect the event looked. I cannot thank Mary enough for her support and expertise. She exceeding every expectation I had when working with vendors. She was my absolute FAVORITE to work with, made this a wonderful creative process, and I wish I could have an event every month there just so I can keep in contact with her!

If you are looking for a wedding that is classic, modern, rustic, romantic, vintage, casual, whimsical or just DIY this venue is PERFECT for any vision you have!

Serra Plaza was everything we could have wanted as our wedding venue and more. This venue is stunning! What really makes Serra Plaza so wonderful is Mary. You can tell she truly loves her job and was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I chose to have our ceremony outdoors and reception in the Grand Salon. The ceremony space is so beautiful and unique with the option of pews for seating it felt as if we were married in an outdoor church. Mary has a large selection of furniture and pieces she lets you use to decorate the venue and make it your own. I would definitely recommend this venue to any Bride!

Serra Plaza is San Juan Capistrano's hidden gem. Not only is it close to the charming and historic Mission of San Juan Capistrano but it has a wonderful indoor and out door space for events. Serra Plaza has several unique qualities that they offer, one being the collection of unique furniture which is at the bride and grooms disposal. It has a beautiful fountain with gorgeous options for lighting from lanterns to chandeliers. The food which is provided by Jay's Catering is amazing and the staff really goes above and beyond what is expected. I highly recommend this venue for anyone looking to get married in a unique outdoor space.
