Located in the heart of the romantic and historic San Juan Capistrano, the Franciscan Gardens captures its charming surroundings creating a dreamy wedding fit for a queen.  With an elegant style and rich architecture, your guests will dine and dance the night away under the stars. You cannot go wrong with the delectable cuisine and beverages to quench your thirst through the always awesome 24 Carrots, one of Orange County’s finest caterers.  One of my fav’s about Franciscan Gardens is the attention to detail they have placed in the bride’s room and groom’s room.  The bride’s room is soft, beautiful, and romantic, while the groom’s room is masculine, handsome and playful (equipped even with a pool table!).  This venue really fits the bill for the bride who is seeking a charming garden-style wedding, with bits of historic ambiance splashed in.


The Franciscan Gardens romantic setting provides the perfect backdrop for any type of ceremony your heart desires.

“Working with Ashley and her team on events at Franciscan Gardens is not only seamless, the weddings are absolutely beautiful.  Agape planning ensures that every single detail is taken care of and thought of before the wedding day arrives.  They make sure to tailor every event to the couple getting married to ensure their wedding represents them in the best way possible.  We have done many weddings with Ashley and her team and every wedding looks different.  Franciscan Gardens can be set up many different ways and Agape knows how to use the space to maximize the guests’ experience.  We absolutely love working with Ashley and her team and know that every event they coordinate will not only be beautiful, but it will run smoothly and everyone will have a great time.”

~Melissa Russell, 24 Carrots Venue and Event Manager
