Our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception was held at Heritage Museum of Orange County on July 23, 2016 and we were extremely happy with this site. It was great to have both the wedding ceremony and reception at one location so our guests did not need to travel somewhere else for the reception. The gazebo is a beautiful setting for the wedding ceremony and the new brick work and fountain in the reception area is terrific and takes this already great site to the next level. Lastly, Jamie Hiber, as the point of contact, was so pleasant to work with throughout the planning process and she expertly handled the wedding ceremony itself with great ease. Made for a memorable day for our entire family. Highly recommended both Jamie Hiber and Heritage Museum of Orange County as a beautiful outdoor wedding site.

The Heritage Museum of Orange County is absolutely gorgeous. We have booked the venue for our wedding taking place June 18th of next year. The Heritage Museum 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. Jamie Hiber is the current events coordinator at the museum, and she is a little ball of adorable energy. Jamie is incredibly open to any ideas and super flexible. She really tries to make you feel at ease. 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 fiancé and I are getting married at the Heritage Museum in about four months, but already we have been so pleased and impressed with this beautiful location, and especially with Jamie's service! From what I can tell, all the 5 star reviews are completely deserved. Jamie has been so extraordinarily sweet and helpful, always responding to my questions and making me feel special and cared about. I remember the very first time I talked to her before we even booked the location, she just felt like a friend and I sensed she truly cared about me and even understood the stress and confusion that go along with all the excitement of wedding decisions. I continue to be so grateful for her as we continue to move toward our wedding--whenever I have a question, she gets back to me as soon as she can, and always with a cheerful and gracious spirit.

Plus the location is just charming! My fiancé and I both love history, and I've always delighted in "old-fashioned" things, so we are so pleased with this venue. The buildings, gardens, gazebo area, and all are just beautiful without being over-elaborate. I would definitely recommend this location...it has already been a blessing to us. :)

The Heritage Museum had such a beautiful ambiance for my bridal shower! It was a super hot day in October but our tables were set up in a nice shady area near the rose bushes. My bridesmaids used the gazebo for my gifts and a sign that was perfect for pictures.

All of my guests were so impressed with this hidden gem. Such a beautiful place most don't know exists.

And Jamie... was amazing to work with! Great communication. She is absolutely spectacular. Checked in to make sure everything was set up ok, instructions on outlets and trash. At the end, she made sure we didn't need anything else and that we were all good to go.

This would also make a great wedding venue and/or engagement session location!!

Funny story- my fiance "found" this venue, and when we toured it, I realized I had been there before, on a field trip in 2nd grade! Anyway, we knew this was the right venue for our wedding the moment we got there; it is so beautiful, with lots of places to explore and have fun! Not to mention the historical Kellogg house (for the ladies to get ready- totally great for photos!), the Carriage Barn (for the guys to get ready -hanging out with some beer),and a super fun Blacksmith Shop run by the OC Blacksmith Association. They have an expansive gazebo on a private lawn surrounded by lush trees, where we held our ceremony. However, there are lots of options and you don't have to have your ceremony there. We had cocktail hour by the Kellogg House, then dinner/reception behind it by the patio area. It is already pre-lit with chandeliers and string lights, and was just gorgeous in the evening. We had 120 guests and there was plenty of room! People were raving about what a gorgeous venue this was, and the kids loved the blacksmith demonstration, and just being able to run around and have fun!

My "things to consider" are:
1. You are required to purchase day-of wedding insurance (about $180 with wedsafe)
2. You cannot bring outside catering, choose from Country Garden or Zov's. (We went with Country Garden-awesome food!). Desserts you can do whatever you want, though.
3. No open flames, so either keep candles in votives or use LED ones.
4. They are dog friendly :) :) :) We had our dog during the ceremony and that was AWESOME
5.Part of your site fee is tax-deductible!!!
6. Jamie, the event coordinator, is the perfect person for this job. She loves what she does and shares her joy with you, which makes the process such a wonderful experience. She is truly a pleasure to work with :)
7.You have to pay a security deposit, which is returned about 6-8 weeks after the wedding.

Thank you Jamie for making our reality better than our dreams :)

My husband and I got married on 8/29/15 and had our ceremony performed at Heritage Museum and it was beautiful! Jamie was so helpful in answering all of our questions. We scheduled a tour to look over the grounds and Jamie gave us some insight into the historic background of Heritage Museum. We got married under the gazebo and were able to get ready the day of on site. My wedding party and I got to get ready in the kellogg house which provided so many fun scenes for pictures. We had a blast! We had our rehearsal 2 days before and Jamie and her team were so flexible and fun in letting my husband and I create the kind of procession we wanted. For anybody that loves their pets as much as we do, they also allow you to have your animal join you on your wedding day if you wish :) My dog walked down the aisle with by husband and his groomsmen to a pennywise song. We had a very non traditional wedding but it was exactly what we wanted. The whole day was beautiful. Jamie was attentive throughout the whole process and kept in communication with me throughout everything. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting a nice outdoor venue.

This place is incredible! It truly is a hidden gem in Orange County and it was my dream place for a wedding. It was large enough to easily fit 150 people with plenty of space to spare. It has beautiful gardens, a gazebo, a working blacksmith shop and two Victorian houses from the late 1800s. The Kellogg house can be opened for guests to explore and it's simply a beautiful setting. Jamie was our coordinator and she was delightful to work with. She is so positive and loves helping her brides. She helped our day be perfect.

My husband and I just got married on 5/2/15 at the Heritage Museum of OC and we had such a great time! Our guests have repeatedly told us how beautiful and unique our venue was. Aside from the beautiful orchards, rose garden and gazebo areas, we had the Kellogg House open for the wedding, and our guests also loved the historical aspect of the venue!

One of the best parts of having our wedding here was the wonderful staff! Jaime Hiber, the event coordinator, was absolutely a joy to work with and was so helpful with her quick responses to my emails and her suggestions! Her cheerful and kind attitude throughout the entire process made it so much to work with her. Kathy, who was there on the day of our wedding, helped the ceremony to run smoothly! The staff helped to make the planning for the wedding wonderful and stress-free. We are so happy we chose this venue for our wedding!

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.

Once you walk through the gates, you are transported to a magical, vintage wonderland. I took lots of pictures just to help myself remember what it looked like and literally every picture I snapped looked like a postcard. It's very peaceful here and all the staff are very knowledgeable and clearly LOVE Heritage Museum. They work hard to care for this place and I love that about Heritage.

You will interact with Jamie Hiber (venue coordinator) if you want to tour the museum and book the venue. She is literally full of sunshine, cheer, and happiness. You can tell she loves her job. She is genuinely excited for every couple that is getting married and does everything she can to make magic happen. She emailed me back promptly with any questions I had and went above and beyond to help lighten my load pre-wedding. On the day of the rehearsal, she was super peppy and helpful, my bridal party kept saying how cute she was. I could not have done it without her. 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, I would probably encourage everyone who asks me to get married here. You won't regret it. It will become super popular soon and it will be difficult to book, so book now before they become a hot spot! I know that right after I booked it, they were voted the #1 Wedding Venue in the OC.
