My husband and I LOVED our wedding venue. It is classic and timeless, both of which can be seen in our wedding pictures. Everyone we worked with was efficient, yet incredibly kind. Ariel, Sarahrose, and Debbie all worked together nicely to provide us with everything we wanted for our favorite day. It was easy to communicate with them and they listened to create exactly what we dreamed of. We could not be more thankful we chose this space for our best day!Sent on 09/07/2019

Perfect for us!
The Estate on Second is a beautiful venue. It is clean. It is well organized. The layout is suitable if you have a few wheelchairs or older people. The staff were very professional and kind, and we enjoyed working with them! We were searching for a venue that looked like a big house, and this certainly fit the bill! If you are looking for an Airbnb venue, like we were, I would encourage you to look here because it has all the positives of a big house plus all the positives of a real venue. Would book again in a heartbeat!Sent on 02/03/2019

Wow what a venue. The estate on second is a fairly new venue in Santa Ana, CA. Definitely a hidden gem. Originally we were going to go with another place that was cheaper but the wife was not happy with that option. We found the estate on second luckily on wedding wire, which fit our budget just right. Absolutely beautiful venue that fit our style perfectly with the brick walls, wooden floors, and beautiful chandeliers. Not only was the venue fantastic but pairing that with Jays Catering made the event that much sweeter. You wont be disappointed with this place.Sent on 02/16/2017
