We were very pleased with our wedding at the Heritage Museum of Orange County. The grounds are relaxed and beautiful. Having our event with no other distractions (other weddings at the same time or immediately before or after) was important to us. Tracy Yu, Events Coordinator, and her team were very helpful and professional.

I am an "alumni" of the Heritage Museum. I remember visiting in the 5th grade and once I was engaged I knew that I wanted to get married in front of the Kellogg home. The prices to book the venue were extremely reasonable compared to other museums.
I loved all the photo opportunities that my photographer was able to capture; we actually ran out of time to take pictures because there were so many places that we wanted to cover. My guests loved how beautiful the venue was. Tracy and Betsy were such joys to work with, especially when my bridal party was not paying attention during the rehearsal.

I am very surprised how many people do not know about this beautiful place!

The Heritage Museum was amazing! It was the perfect venue for our wedding. Tracy Yu is awesome and helped us along the way. There are so many interesting things to look at: Kellogg House, gazebo area, rose garden, citrus grove, farming tools, gold mine set, and an adobe house. Thank you Heritage Museum!

We just had our wedding on 9/21/2013 at the Heritage Museum of Orange County. The Heritage is an amazing place! You are able to use the whole property and do not have to choose between sections. The bride and bridesmaids really enjoyed using the historic Kellogg House to get ready in. They are very flexible and will do their best to accommodate your requests. We enjoyed having a live band, a custom outdoor photo-booth, lawn games for kids, and so much more. Their required vendor Country Garden caterers sets everything up perfectly and makes it very easy for the bride and groom. Overall we had a great experience and an awesome wedding!

As soon as we took a tour of the Heritage Museum, I couldn't imagine having our wedding elsewhere. I was so taken by the character of the venue and the variety of surroundings on the property.

The booking covers the entire property, which includes an old Victorian house for the bride to get ready in, a rose garden, a gazebo (where we had our ceremony), an orange grove, a lawn in front of an old purple house that was great for family portraits, a covered area for food and drinks...and more! The venue itself has a lot of natural beauty so if you're on a budget like we were, you can get by with minimal decorations.

On the wedding day, the outdoor grounds gave us a pleasant, warm, down-to-earth atmosphere in a beautiful and romantic setting. Our guests had a great time exploring the property and taking pictures at the many photo-opportunistic places.

The staff is also wonderful. Tracy was very professional and responsive to all of our questions throughout the planning process. She was accommodating and easy-to-work with; I felt like I was working with a friend, rather than someone who I had just met. Tracy also put me in touch with my florist, Katie Doyle from Studio Ooh La La, who did an amazing job for a very reasonable price. Betsy, who was there for our rehearsal and on the day-of, did a great job in making sure everything ran smoothly.

We recently got our wedding photos back and looking at the pictures reinforced that we couldn't have picked a better place. The Heritage Museum provided a beautiful backdrop and many happy memories for our special day.

Beautiful location with lots of options. Tracy was great to work with and very helpful with the rehearsal. Fabulous, unique, vintage. Photographs were beautiful, lots of options. Loved working with Country Garden Caterers too, food was fabulous! Grounds are well kept and they have a lot of albums with ideas for weddings. We highly recommend this location.

We worked with Tracy and Betsy for our ceremony/reception at the Heritage Museum in Santa Ana. Tracy helped us file all the paperwork, sign contracts, pick our ceremony and reception times, and get insurance for the site. Betsy aided in answering questions and being on hand the day of to lift my train and guide us through the day.
We had both our ceremony AND reception at this site which was perfect. Going from the gazebo into the garden for cocktail hour then flowing into the patio area for dinner made things simple and easy to work with. The guests were in awe of our venue. Many have vowed to go back on their own time to visit the museum.
We felt that the venue was an asset to our vintage themed wedding and we felt that we got more than what we paid for. We had a lawn for games, a garden for cocktails, a gazebo to be married in, the use of the big house for the bridal party and to sign our license. Then we had the patio and backyard area for our reception and more than enough room to dance. It was perfect and we are very pleased with our choice to use this site as our ceremony/reception venue.
A word of caution is to make sure you follow up with your communication and make sure you get responses. We had little trouble communicating with Tracy but there were some typos and glitches with our paperwork from the accounting department that Tracy willingly helped us fix. Nothing drastic but just a note that you might need to follow up with some of your emails/calls.
We loved this place. It's stunning and so big. We couldn't have picked a better place to start our life together!
