If you are looking for a hidden gem full of beautiful spaces to get ready in, say I do, and celebrate, consider the Heritage Museum of Orange County! The historic buildings have been restored meticulously, and the grounds are well maintained. Even though the property is large, it has an intimate and private feel to it and features a citrus grove, gazebo, rose garden, and many other photogenic areas. Staff is friendly, helpful, and works hard to ensure everything runs smoothly. My clients were able to party until midnight with their 170 guests. It was a memorable fun day, and much of the credit goes to the Museum.

My wife and I got married at the Heritage Museum of Orange County...The venue was absolutely beautiful and we received super positive compliments from the guests following the wedding. Most of them were shocked that such a perfect outdoor venue was hiding in the heart of Santa Ana. I can't recommend this venue enough!

The cutest little hidden venue in all of OC! We knew we wanted a local wedding, and outdoors, but oh my goodness venues are expensive in Orange County! I stumbled across this venue through a wedding website...The Heritage was our first venue we looked at when “shopping around”; we loved it at first site, but it wasn’t until we viewed a few other venues did we know the Heritage was the best value and most beautiful all around. The venue day-of was spotless and pristine; the girls got ready in the old heritage house and it felt like a 1920’s dream. Our guests were wowed by the size of the venue (we get the whole lot!) and the charm of it. There are some rustic elements to the venue in the back, but since my husband and I were going for a vintage feel, we simply kept people around the house and rose garden. Easy!...Highly recommend this venue if you’re looking for the WOW factor without breaking the bank!

There are not words to express just how amazing my wedding was. From the chandelier adorned gazebo, to the colorful rose garden, to the fresh citrus grove, my husband and I were living all of our wedding dreams. Heritage Museum is a non-profit organization that dedicates its time to educating the community about Orange County history. They provide opportunities for students that are one of a kind. They also just happen to be amazing enough to additionally make wedding dreams come true!...Our wedding was perfection. If you are looking for a beautiful outdoor venue to host your big day then you have found the right place!

I absolutely LOVE Heritage Museum! My husband and I recently got married here this spring. I was a bride on a budget, but I didn't want to sacrifice quality. You can have a relaxed, rustic wedding or you can very easily dress the place up and go for classy elegance. Everything about the process of booking it as our venue was easy and so fun mainly because of their super sweet staff and GORGEOUS grounds. This is probably one of my favorite places to visit, there is something so enchanting about this place...There is just so much beauty and versatility with this venue for the price you pay, I highly recommend it as a place to get married

The Heritage Museum of Orange County is absolutely gorgeous. We have booked the venue for our wedding, it is one of the best venue options we found in OC in terms of cost. Their peak season pricing is incredibly reasonable. If you are looking for an outdoor venue, with an indoor option and a quirky personality, this is your place. What I really love about this venue is its versatility. There are sooo many options for your ceremony and reception. The museum only books one wedding per day, so you have the entire grounds to yourself. No need to worry about random people wandering into your celebration. Do yourself a favor, schedule an appointment to check this place out!

My husband and I just got married here and we cannot begin to say how glad we are that we chose HMOC as our wedding venue!...In terms of looks, the venue is absolutely beautiful. My husband is a bit of a history buff, so he especially loved the history behind the land as well as the Kellogg House. I absolutely loved getting ready in the Kellogg house, and the rest of the venue made our pictures look beautiful, from the gazebo, to the Kellogg House, to the orange trees, and so much more! I would strongly suggest Heritage House Museum to anyone getting married. It is the perfect spot for a wedding as well as other events (they have several events to visit each month!) We can't wait to visit future events here!

Outstanding service and food. My daughter had her wedding at the Heritage Museum of Orange County and Country Garden Caterers provided the set-up at the wedding ceremony and food/set-up at the reception. This was a one stop-shop for all our needs. Many options to choose from and an experienced coordinator (Diana) made it all simple and very helpful. All services from contracting to event catering was done with the utmost courtesy and with seamless professionalism. As bride parents, we received overwhelming positive feedback from our guests on the delicious food and beautiful setting for each event that day...Pricing was very competitive and the wedding package was all we needed.

If you are looking for an outdoor rustic wedding, well you have found your place! This place is perfect in every aspect of the word! After months of looking for the perfect venue my coworker told me about this place and I fell in love at first sight. Its beautiful during the day and even more during the night. I couldn't have picked a better place. There's plenty of parking and lots of space for guests to walk around and enjoy themselves.

Country Garden Caterers are the preferred caterer for our wedding venue, HMOC and they did not disappoint. I was concerned about blowing our wedding budget on food which was a super important element to me and not only was the food extremely affordable, it was absolutely delicious too! We received such good feedback from our friends & family. Their servers & bartenders also took great care of our guests!
