Muckenthaler Mansion

Orange County




Located on 9 acres of gorgeous park-like grounds, the Muckenthaler Mansion is the perfect place for your fun yet elegant wedding ceremony and reception. With a vista of gently rolling gardens, swaying palms, and picturesque architecture, it is the ideal space for your special day. Imagine the unparalleled romance of a ceremony in the intimate Italian Garden. You will walk down a grassy, flower petal covered aisle toward an intricate flower covered wrought iron altar where you and your beloved will say your “I Dos”—all while your closest friends and family lovingly observe. The surrounding lush foliage and grand palm trees bordering the garden create a private, intimate space perfect for such a cherished moment to share with your guests. The mansion, built in the 1920s, offers historic charm and unique architecture making it an exquisite backdrop for the entire wedding celebration. You will be able to invite your friends and family to continue the celebration after the ceremony either inside the mansion or on the Adella Lawn where food and drinks will flow, toasts will be made, dance moves will be displayed, and most importantly, unforgettable memories of this special day will be made.
