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!

Incredible venue. This location had it all. It had the beauty we were looking for but also at a great price. This was the only upscale venue in south OC that would allow us to bring in our own catering and bar. We were able to put on a beautiful wedding for 150+ guest for under $10,000! This is one of OC hidden jewels for brides and grooms. You won't be disappointed.

This place is beautiful! It made for gorgeous pictures and my guests loved this unique location. 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. I loved finding a venue that would allow us to bring in our own caterer instead of making us use theirs! We were very pleased with this venue!

Dove Canyon Courtyard is so stunning, especially when it's all lit up at night. It is the perfect venue for a wedding...beautiful, serene and not to large where guests would feel left out. I thought the price was a little high for only tables and chairs being included in the package. None of my guests had heard or seen the venue before and they were all commenting on how great it was. I would highly reccommend.
