Franciscan Gardens Bridal Shower Inspiration

Franciscan Gardens is our intimate Spanish-style venue in the heart of old town San Juan Capistrano. We host about 120 weddings a year in this romantic space, and countless other occasions. With lush green backdrops and bistro lighting to complete the al fresco atmosphere, it’s the perfect space to have an event.

California Wedding Day Enchanted Dinner at The Colony House

Christine Bentley Photography for California Wedding Day

As featured in California Wedding Day’s blog: California Pink Hues and Garden Glamour at the OC’s Colony House:

“We are so inspired by Orange County’s newest venue, The Colony House. The unique space melds historic Craftsman architecture with a modern sensibility that creates an inviting palette for a beautiful wedding–from vintage to modern. So when it came time to host a dinner party for our 60 of our nearest and dearest in the wedding industry, we knew this was the perfect location. Add in the OC’s Best Wedding Planner, Kerrie Underhill of Platinum Weddings by Kerrie and the result was so magical that we had to share this gorgeous design to inspire brides and grooms.

Underhill and Melissa McGown of Flowers by Cina’s overall design aesthetic was a modern feeling juxtaposed with romantic bohemian touch. The light and airy space has a cool loft feeling to it and Flowers by Cina expertly accentuated the Colony House’s beautiful wooden beams by hanging six crystal chandeliers that were elegantly enhanced with lush green garlands, creating a sense of a garden with in the space. The dark midnight blue linen (Soleil from Designer Specialty Linens) created a perfect modern backdrop for the tabletop elements that included a boho-inspired silver basket weave charger from Classic Party Rentals, personalized menus by Honeycrisp Design Studio with a vibrant Aubergine Metallic Weave napkin folded underneath. Flowers by Cina’s added a vibrant energy and pure loveliness with fuschia and pink-hued centerpieces that wound down the two feasting tables. Flickering floating candles added a soft touch of romance while gorgeous seating vignettes from Found Vintage Rentals nestled around the perimeter of the party created the perfect place to sip and chat after the feasting had completed. The overall look was completed by the brilliant lighting design provided by Illuminated Events. Rounding out the experience was an amazing dinner (we want seconds of the Braised Short Rib! See full menu below for inspiration) by 24 Carrots paired with the perfect wines by BevMo.”

We are thrilled to showcase our full menu for such a luxurious and intimate affair and to be able to share with you more event photos, captured by Christine Bentley, of this enchanted evening! Enjoy!

Bohemian Romance at The Colony House

Where everyone feels at home.

A home should be inviting and welcoming. A place where people can come together to create special memories, share stories, exchange laughs, or even shed the occasional happy tears.  The Colony House offers a mix of different styles, architectural influences, and versatile spaces that make it a chic and stylish venue for any type of event or special occasion. The entire venue can accommodate up to 750 guests, but features unique spaces that can be customized and intermixed depending on your event size and personal preferences. Filament lighting throughout the venue provides a warm and inviting feel so your guests will always feel at home.

We are head over heels with the Green Wedding Shoes blog featuring The Colony House, with photos captured by the ever talented Joel Eckman Maus of Studio EMP Photography,   With a beautiful exposed brick wall and a vaulted craftsman style ceiling, this venue was the perfect backdrop for this bohemian romance wedding shoot.  From the boho-gypsy inspired decor, to the lush, vibrant blooms by Inviting Occasion, to Found’s stylish poufs + cozy-looking vignettes, we’re big fans of the design of the entire day. 






















Follow The Colony House on Instagram at @TheColonyHouse and on Facebook.
