Franciscan Gardens

Orange County



The Franciscan Gardens is an outdoor garden courtyard in Southern Orange County that is highlighted by Spanish, Old California-style decor and a vintage, chic ambiance. Guests can dine and dance underneath the stars with the magical charm of downtown San Juan Capistrano in the backdrop. The secluded garden is made private with walls of beautiful flowers and tall trees creating a romantic and intimate space for a wedding celebration. At the center of the garden is a beautiful fountain centerpiece and surrounding it are lush, meticulously groomed green hedges and decorative white light posts. Beautiful by day and gorgeous by night, the possibilities for lighting and decor are endless. Planning is almost effortless as nearly all rentals along with food and beverage are handled exclusively by the owner, 24 carrots.
