Franciscan Gardens is a hidden and charming oasis in the heart of San Juan. With blossoming gardens, and plenty of greenery, Franciscan Gardens is overflowing with Old-World charm. The 5,000 square foot property features an outdoor courtyard, Spanish-style garden and a recently remodeled bridal suite and grooms lounge! We love the romantic feel of this space and appreciate how the venue can transform to whatever style you gravitate towards. Are you more of a classic style with tufted furniture and crystal coupes? That works here. Are you more into a colorful and rustic vibe? That works too! Franciscan Gardens can adapt to any style and that’s why it’s one of the top venues in Southern California
The Villa San Juan is a turn-of-the-century home covered in ivy, with a signature mahogany door with yes, you guessed it - a metal door knocker. The feeling of The Villa is romantic and charming, with 300 year old art on the walls, and a borderline medieval feel. Ceremonies and receptions are help in the courtyard, where giant fruit trees are illuminated by Spanish gas lamps. There’s cobbled stone wherever you go will make you and your guests feel like you are transported to an old European city.
