Highlights from our last wedding at Plaza De Magdalena.
About the Venue: In the heart of Downtown San Juan Capistrano, California, the Plaza de Magdalena is a top So Cal wedding destination that offers a touch of rustic Spanish style with modern amenities. Couples start their journey together walking through the traditional wrought-iron gates that lead into a hidden urban paradise. Nestled between Los Angeles and San Diego, out-of-town guests only have a short walk from the Amtrak station to the stairs leading down into the garden patio and courtyard at the Plaza de Magdalena.
The Magdalena Room. Couples looking for an indoor location for their nuptials love the Magdalena Room at the Plaza de Magdalena. Set up to accommodate 50 to 229 guests, the room features a state-of-the-art audio/visual and lighting system. The room has an attached suite with a private entrance and bathroom. This area is ideal for the wedding party to use while preparing for the ceremony.
The Courtyard. A spacious, open air location, complete with a magnificent copper waterfall, the Courtyard is one of the Plaza de Magdalena’s most popular sites. The maximum capacity of this outdoor site is 60 seated and 180 standing.
