    Amazing Venue

    The Hacienda is an amazing place to get married at! From the helpful and friendly staff to the beautiful venue, it was a perfect wedding. The venue feels like a hidden gem. All of our guests were impressed at how beautiful the venue was. The venue is so well-decorated that it saves on cost as you don't need to buy any decor. Our guests were also impressed with how good the food and cake was. Would highly recommend!

    Everything we hoped for

    We couldn't have asked for a better venue! The staff at The Hacienda always replied to our calls and emails within 24 hours, they were extremely communicative throughout the planning process, and on the day of the wedding everything ran so smooth and according to plan! They made the planning process and day of the wedding feel so much easier than I ever expected. Not to mention their prices are extremely reasonable and the venue is absolutely stunning. We got so many compliments about how beautiful it was.

    A Hidden Gem

    Wow. I am still reeling from our wedding this past weekend. It seems like so long ago that we found The Hacienda and booked our wedding. We were still in the middle of a somewhat lockdown so I never actually saw the venue until months after we were already booked (my parents went and did a venue tour and I trusted their judgment). The venue is quite unsuspecting from the outside and where it's located. Once inside, it's a beautiful historic-looking hacienda ranch. It was affordable, local, and fit the kind of intimate and homey vibe we wanted for our wedding.

    I understand how hard it is to be working from home and not full-time in the office during the pandemic, so while emails may not have been answered right away, I always received a response and it was always courteous. Another thing is, you might not always be communicating with the same coordinator; however, nothing was ever lost in translation and all notes were accounted for when it came down to the final event.

    After months and months of correspondence by email, I had my details appointment in September (for our December wedding) and it was nice to walk through the venue and talk through the details for table settings and where to have the ceremony, reception, et cetera. I was pleased to know I had a whole selection of cake designs. Right now, the popular trend is the plain frosted cake with flowers but I am not a huge flower fan so I got a pretty cake with scrolling detail. They were also accommodating to allow me three meal choices as we have some vegetarians in the family as well as ensured us of no peanuts in the food due to a severe allergy. Of course, I thought of more things after the fact and continued to email them over the next few months until our wedding. I'm pretty sure I even emailed them the night before with more last-minute changes.

    During the rehearsal a few nights before the wedding, we worked with Amelia and she was so sweet with helping walk us through the ceremony and collecting all our items for the big day (e.g., cake topper, toasting glasses, decorations, seating chart, signs, guest book, etc.). I didn't see most of the venue until dinner started (the rush of the ceremony and dances, I didn't have time to look around haha). They truly brought my vision to life! If you're not settled on getting married during "wedding season" in the summer months, I would highly recommend December around Christmas time because the decorations truly elevate it to another level! I was nervous about how the food would taste because we never had a tasting but everything was delicious during dinner (I didn't try the appetizers, but everyone seemed happy!).

    One thing to note is the wedding party can only access the venue 30 minutes prior to the ceremony so I didn't get to take any "getting ready" photos prior as we had arranged with our photographer to arrive to the venue an hour early and take photos on the outside (there are a couple of nice walls and decorative doors that are cute for photos). We had booked the entire venue so we had access to two dressing rooms which was nice to have a moment to collect ourselves before walking down the aisle.

    All night, people were telling us how surprising it was to see the inside of the venue because it's so unexpected when driving up and parking in the small lot outside (btw, they have an attached parking lot and security patrolling the area, nice added touch). Everyone seemed to enjoy the food, the decor, and the whole night. The coordinators and staff kept us on schedule and checked in with us throughout the night. It was a magical night and I am so, so pleased with this venue. I hope to have a reason to come back in the future!

I've had the pleasure of photographing several weddings at The Hacienda, from the first one I've always thought it was such a great venue. The staff has always been a friendly group of people to work with and all my clients have always been happy their service they provide. I always look forward to photographing working with the wonderful staff on weddings at The Hacienda.

It has always been a pleasure for us to work at The Hacienda, in our opinion one of Orange County's premier venue locations alongside Tivoli Too & Terrace. Their hospitality is always genuine, and finding locations to shoot within the venue is a breeze. Highly recommended!
