Weddings celebrations should be enchanting, but all too often the stress and expense of planning a wedding takes away from the joy and excitement of this special day. There are so many things to consider: Where should we hold it? How much will it cost? How can I make it a magical day and still stay within my budget? Where do I find a really great photographer? Who will cater the food? What about twinkling lights, candles, flowers, music? And on and on and on, sometimes straining family relationships to the breaking point.

Dove Canyon Courtyard has all the answers. They make planning a wedding fun again. Kenney Hrabik, a local Rancho Santa Margarita resident, founded Dove Canyon Courtyard in 2006 with a vision of bringing Orange County couples a stress-free means of planning and holding weddings and receptions at a beautiful venue, while saving time and money.

Kenney has been one of OC’s top event planners for the past 25 years. He and his wonderful staff have organized and staged thousands of weddings, proms, landmark birthday parties, business conferences and retreats. After working with so many clients, and sensing their concerns at wanting exceptional quality at an affordable price, he saw the need for an all-inclusive wedding package.

“Weddings have become too expensive in Orange County,” says Kenney. “Over the years I have watched parents and couples struggle to plan and finance a simple wedding. I knew there had to be a better way to celebrate this special occasion.

“The relationships I have built with the area’s top vendors helped me develop an all-inclusive wedding package. At Dove Canyon Courtyard, we remove much of the stress and provide you a way to host a beautiful wedding reception for under $10,000.”

“We have been able to pre-negotiate wholesale rates from the area’s top wedding vendors. We then package these services together, saving you thousands of dollars. Volume brings discounts. We are the “Costco” of weddings, providing outstanding quality and fantastic services at a very reasonable price.,” says Kenney. “Our couples receive a great deal and we keep the vendors working. It is a win-win situation for everyone.”

The current recession has taught many people to rethink their life’s strategies, especially when it comes to incurring debt. In south Orange County, the average cost of putting on a wedding is between $27,456 – $45,760. Studies of marital conflict cite money issues as the number one point of contention. With all the other challenges newlyweds face, paying off a pile of wedding debt is a hard way to start life together. Don’t sabotage your marriage for the sake of putting on a party.

If you are looking for a special venue to host a wedding reception or some other important event, check out beautiful Dove Canyon Courtyard. They are located just outside the gates of Dove Canyon in the Dove Canyon Plaza Shopping Center.

Come in for a personal tour on Wednesday evenings from 6 – 8 pm and Saturdays from 10 am – 1 pm. No appointment is needed. Read less

Quality of Service: Excellent, Gayle ( Dove Canyon Courtyard's coordinator) is AMAZING. She is so passionate about working at this venue and she really cares about all her brides. ( I'm not just saying that.) I truly felt like she really cared about me and she helped me find some of the vendors I had (which were able to work with my budget.) I am so glad that we went with this hidden gem, Dove Canyon Courtyard.

Responsiveness: Whenever I emailed Gayle, she was quick to respond to me. She knows the venue so well and was always able to give me the best suggestions whenever I inquired.

Professionalism: Gayle and her staff are very professional. The day of the wedding, it went very smooth. If something didn't go according to plan, I have no idea and didn't notice it. My wedding at this venue was stress free! I had such a fun time.

Value: Where in Orange county can you find a venue that allows outside catering AND allows you to bring in your own ALCOHOL. I mean seriously, this is awesome. Aside from this venue being gorgeous, the fact that we could bring our own alcohol and our own catering here is one of the big reasons that we went with this venue.

Flexibility: Before the wedding, Gayle was always an email away. She always had good communication. The day of the wedding, Gayle was like wonderwoman, always making sure things were running smoothly.

Venue: It's so pretty! They have a beautiful canopy certain months out of the year. Their Dj, Jerry is such a good MC/DJ. We played the newly wed game (AKA: shoe game, shoe-ly wed game.) This game was such a hit!

My wedding day (March 2016) was so much fun and went by so quick. I got so many compliments on how pretty the venue was and how much fun they had AND how smooth everything went! I'm so glad we went with this hidden gem!

Thank you Gayle for everything, you're the best!

Dove Canyon Courtyard is a hidden jem. The courtyard is beautiful and has a really pretty white canopy/tent that's up from November-March. We chose to get married in February and the canopy just made our wedding look so much more elegant.
What really attracted us to DCC was that they allowed outside catering which helped us save a lot of money on our wedding. If you are savvy and flexible you can have a decently priced wedding here. The average cost of a wedding is $30,000 (I can't even imagine what it is in OC) and we had all the bells and whistles for ours for about half that price.
I can't go much further without mentioning Gayle, the coordinator. She is the most lovely person you will ever meet in your life. She cares and cares and cares so much about your wedding and puts the couple, and even more so, the bride, above everything. The month before our wedding I went to the Courtyard every week, called, texted, and emailed Gayle weekly and she always was so happy to speak with me and meet with me. She does way more than a coordinator should do and I almost felt like she was little private wedding planner. She cared so much about saving us money which we really appreciated. She wants your wedding to be the most beautiful day and she will bend over backwards for you.
There is no doubt that our wedding day was the most beautiful and special day of my life. Though so many people helped make it possible, Gayle played a huge role and she is the biggest gift that comes with booking the courtyard. As I mentioned earlier, you can have a fairly priced wedding here, but you will have to do more work. This isn't all inclusive and it's pretty much all BYO. If you don't mind putting in the extra work looking for other vendors, then this is the place for you. Plus, Gayle has tons of recommendations and she made finding vendors much easier.

Excellent experience at Dove Canyon Courtyard. Gail was over the top in her customer service and care. She made sure that everything was taken care of and all we had to do was enjoy our daughters wedding. Her attentiveness to the bride and her needs made for a wonderful experience for the whole family. The courtyard was beautiful and gave the wedding a feel of elegance. So affordable as well. I can't say enough good things about the Courtyard and Gail. Thank you so much for a wonderful day!!

Loved the intimate feeling of the venue. The layout was not ideal as many guests ended up missing the cake cutting, bouquet toss, and garter toss. We hired Gayle (the event coordinator of the venue) as our day-of coordinator for an extra $500 and it was NOT worth it. She told us we could arrive anytime after 10am, but when we arrived, she told us she was meeting with another client until 1pm. Everything she did for us that day, she would have done anyways, so we regret paying her the $500. She was very helpful though as she let us use her vases, and put tulling and lights on the stairs with no extra cost. She is a very sweet woman and answered all of our questions but was hard to get a hold of. The venue is not open 7 days a week so you have to make an appointment before just showing up. I LOVED the cottage that the bride gets to come out of though, as I made my grand entrance coming down a staircase. I got married on 11/22/14 so the big tent was up, which I am very happy about. My guests loved it and they were not sitting in direct sun, nor did they need to wear sunglasses, or worry about sweating from the heat. We had 165 people at our wedding which was fine in general, but was rather tight when it came to dinning.

I feel as though there aren't enough positive words in the English language to express how wonderful our wedding was and it was due in part for the beautiful courtyard and it's amazing staff. Gayle White is the hard-working Coordinator for the courtyard who from our first phone call was the most wonderful woman caring and loving and willing to go above and beyond to make our day as special as it was in our minds, and she truly did just that. It was a fantasy, she managed to wrangle all of our guess that didn't feel they needed to follow any sort of directions and all of our vendors that were coming from all of the place. We are young couple on a very tight budget and she was able to give us suggestions and hints to keep on the budget and always made sure to put our needs, wants and dreams first.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the courtyard. From the moment we stepped through the gate we knew that this was the perfect setting for our dream wedding but what really made it was the amazing staff and unlike most places the feeling that they really want to make your dreams come true. Our wedding was stress free and truly the best day of our live
Every single aspect about our wedding was perfect, the DJ worked tirelessly with us to create the perfect playlist that had me dancing all night and did a wonderful job of rallying people to the dance floor as well as setting the mood for the entire night. He too went above and beyond.
I could never repay all these wonderful people for all that they did for myself and my husband on this day so I will leave it at this, the courtyard is a wonderful place to get married, and thank you so much Gayle and all of your staff for all of your support and for making our dreams come true. If there's anything we can ever do please let us know. Thanks again for the most wonderful day of our lives, and please know that we noticed and appreciated all of your hard work down to the most small details and we thank you for that.

I cannot start to express the gratitude that I have for Gayle at Dove Canyon Courtyard. She was amazing from the moment we first stepped into the venue site and until she whisked us off in our limo. She went beyond what we all expected. She catered to my every request and made sure I was stress free. She even decorated!!! The venue is/was absolutely beautiful. It is a hidden gem and Gayle is just the person you would absolutely fall in love with! The venue is perfect for a small wedding or even a big one like ours of 150 people. They accommodate your every wish from allowing your own caterer and BYOB (With a license of course) Which she helps you get. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS VENUE AND COORDINATOR. THANK YOU GAYLE!

I can't say enough about this venue for both our ceremony and reception. It may not look like anything during the day but it is absolutely beautiful at night with all the lighting/waterfall feature. Gayle White was so accommodating and went above and beyond her coordinating duties. We were extremely happy with everything this courtyard offered. We had 185 guests and my only issues was 2 restrooms. I would recommend a portable bathroom for the men to use!

This is one of OC hidden jewels for brides and grooms. You won't be disappointed.

It is a bit tricky to find for guests who are not familiar with the area, but as long as you include good directions in your invites then it won't be a problem.
