Franciscan Gardens

This Spanish Inspired Wedding featured on The Perfect Palette, is everything you were dreaming of! From the vibrant floral details, fun tableware and cute macrame, guests felt as though they were in Spain. The celebration took place at the Franciscan Gardens, located in San Juan Capistrano. The venue space is composed of a Spanish style that complimented the theme of the wedding

For the ceremony, the backdrop was a beautiful handmade Macrame that was decorated with bright blooms. The bride wore a Spanish inspired wedding dress and veil that included scalloped trim detail. While the groom wore a blue suit that was complimented by the variety of vibrant colors.

‘When it comes to setting the scene, Sundrop Vintage and Signature Party Rentals made it look effortless. Tabletop rentals from Cherished Rentals added so much pretty to this reception! Hand-lettered signage by Made by Meer was oh-so-pretty while textured linens from Luxe Linen added a beautiful touch of elegance!’ (The Perfect Palette)

We loved the table design of this wedding, not just because of our linens, but because of all the details included in the design. Wooden plates were used that were complemented by golden tableware. While vibrant florals, orange crystal chalices, and hand-painted Spanish tiles decorated the guest tables. Every detail coordinated impeccably creating the perfect Spanish Inspired Wedding!

For the Spring/Summer 2018 issue, Ceremony featured this vibrant wedding at Franciscan Gardens. The wedding was planned by Confetti Skies, a boutique wedding planning firm founded in 2014 out of southern California. Confetti Skies focuses on styling each wedding to the couple’s personality. The Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano was the perfect venue for the wedding of Francis and Sogol. The wedding was full of vibrant colors that fit perfectly with the Spanish details of the venue.

The altar featured a wooden arch covered in greenery and vibrant florals. From the middle hung an elegant chandelier creating a traditional touch. The vibrant florals of the arch were seen across the guest tables where white linens decorated the tables. Each table was decorated with golden candles and our blush pink napkins in which a thank you card was set for each guest. At each table sat wooden chairs that matched the rest of the wooden decor of the venue. In the middle of the venue was a fountain which completed the Spanish design of the wedding.

This perfect love story began during the proposal. ‘Francis surprised Sogol with a trip to Seattle, and she was especially excited about the possibility of visiting a tulip festival while there. Francis played it off, but he surprised her by taking her to the festival and finding a private area, among the red tulips, to propose. He set up a GroPro, gave Sogol a note (with another GoPro to capture her reaction), and then asked her to marry him.’ 

Such a romantic proposal could only mean having a vibrant wedding at Franciscan Gardens to begin the happily ever after.

We were thrilled to be part of this Tuscan wine country wedding! The inspiration came from the amazing brick wall in Franciscan Gardens’ new indoor ballroom and the quaintness of San Juan Capistrano.  It sparked a feeling of being in an old Italian vineyard and family style dining.  The indoor ballroom at Franciscan Gardens has a cozy, intimate feel to it, so we played on that.  Lots of wine to cheers with and bread to break with your neighbor were the main themes we wanted to come across with this shoot. The family style dining element was very important us with this shoot.  We made the tables a u-shape to keep the feeling of unity and sharing.  Each place setting had a small loaf of bread inside a parchment bag with the menu listed on it.  For place cards, we took the beautiful silk ribbon from tono & co. and had our amazing calligrapher, A Fabulous Fete, hand paint each name. The lace linen and runners completed the winery look with the vintage china and farm tables.

Katherine & Pablo had the perfect Franciscan Gardens fall wedding in Orange County. Blooming with color, this wedding coordinated by Events by Valerie was rustic and elegant. Urban Gardener Newport Beach added the perfect pop of color to our linens with autumn and fall color choices that completed the look. The showstopper was definitely the sweetheart table. Thank you Cary Pennington Photography for the images!

Tucked away in the heart of historic San Juan Capistrano, Franciscan Gardens’ elegant wooden gates and blossoming garden offer a charming hideaway for your wedding or special event.

We are celebrating fall with this gorgeous red rose shoot at Franciscan Gardens. We provided our shantung cranberry linen with our lamour plum napkins. We also used our gold Chiavari chairs with cranberry lamour chair pad covers. As originally featured on Love & Lavender:

“I thought it was the perfect time to feature this red rose styled wedding shoot. Not only does it remind us of the fall season and all its fiery colors, but it has romance written all over it! A perfect tablescape for both a fall wedding reception or a romantic Valentines Day dinner.

Comments from the coordinater: “Growing up in Colorado, the colors of the changing Aspen trees in autumn have always fascinated me. Rich hues of gold, orange, and red fill the mountains with such beauty. Bringing that color palate to the dining table accompanied by a luscious hanging flower chandelier creates a unique ambiance for guests to celebrate any occasion. Adding special touches, such as individual menus and personalized place cards, are all small details that show your guests you truly care about their overall experience at your event.”
