We absolutely loved the atmosphere at the French Estate. It was relaxing and clean, and fit perfectly with our French/rustic wedding. We had a couple issues with the seating set-up, but couldn't do anything about it, so we just enjoyed ourselves. I would recommend this venue for small/medium sized weddings. And book well in advance!

Sarah has such a beautiful home and runs such a wonderful business. We were so lucky to stumble upon this amazing place and share our wedding day with our friends and family there. Margie and the rest of Sarah's team were super accommodating and helpful. There's also a special deal that sarah has with a local catering and cake company. You won't be disappointed - everything turne out beautifully! Thank you!

Sarah is a big help on the wedding day and getting you what you need. She sometimes take a bit of time to get back to you and is not available as much as I would of liked.

We found The French Estate by accident, but we fell in love with it. Sarah is amazing in her abilities as a wedding planner/hostess and took care of us through the entire lead up to the big day. The landscaping is gorgeous and the backyard, once it's set up, is like a fairy tale. We couldn't have done better to find a venue that suited our vision and needs.

We held an intimate wedding at the French Estate on a sunny, warm, spring Saturday afternoon/evening. The backyard garden was just perfect for what we were looking for - beautiful without being too prissy, the garden, grounds, and house were all wonderful. The location has a lot of flexibility of locations for different needs for the ceremony/cocktails/reception and all the services are a la carte so you can go big or small and bring in your own vendors if there is something special you want with no issues. Sarah, who manages the property, couldn't have been more relaxed or helpful throughout the whole process. Its a great spot!

I love the French Estate. I had an idea of an elegant, relaxed outdoor wedding, but so many venues I looked at were unbelievably expensive. The French Estate offered me all of the charm I was looking for at a completely reasonable rate. Sarah Pearson was a lovely, down to earth person who was very kind and easy to work with. All of the whimsical touches she has at this place (silverware windchimes, a boot as a flowerpot) brought a smile to my face. This isn't the right place if you like to party late into the night with loud music (it's residential so there are noise restrictions, and you have to be off the site by 9:30). But this place is perfect for a charming garden wedding.

Shortly after being engaged, my main concern was to find and book a venue. I searched on countless websites about an orange county venue but failed over and over again to find "the place" Most of the places I have seen are gorgeous on the internet until I clicked on their prices and my hopes of booking some of them quickly diminished. My fiance was the one who footed the whole wedding bill and I wanted to find a venue that was beautiful but will not break his back. One day, I decided to use google and type in orange county wedding venues and out of the blue, The French Estate website popped out. I was immediately dazzled with the pictures. It was a very beautiful, nicely decorated house that had an absolutely wonderful vintage theme to it. I immediately asked for an inquiry and found out that a sweet lady runs and owns the place. Her name is Sarah and she saved my wedding on so many different occasions. At one point pressure from family and other factors got to me and she decided to meet with me right away to calm my nerves. She is not a wedding factory. Her prices are way beyond reasonable and she most definitely does not treat you like a walking check book. You have freedom to use whatever decorations she has and she has the best packages in orange county. She works with a caterer who is also a gem and they work together to offer a catering package that is almost unbelievable in price. The food is great and it comes with a wedding cake! Our wedding was small and intimate and on our wedding day, Sarah made sure to make everyone feel comfortable. She coordinated my wedding and when I was getting ready at her very very spacious bridal suite, she made sure to come in every once in a while to see if I needed anything. She calmed me down a lot and all my guests couldn't stop talking about how great she is and how beautiful the day is. At the end of the day a wedding is just a wedding, its the marriage that really does matter and my husband and I have always believed in that and we were blessed to find Sarah who believes in the same thing. It made our wedding so much more special and intimate and I would not change a single thing about it!

I just got married at the French Estate and it was awesome!

All the guests loved the place! It is such a beautiful place - it has a quaint garden/outside feel. The house, i believe, was built in 1895 so its technically historic.

Sarah, the owner of the French Estate, is so wonderful - she's sweet, calm, helpful and she even has vendors that she works with that are professional and great. I used her caterer, cake person and DJ - all wonderful. She even provides a wedding coordinator for the day of which was AWESOME - I am so glad they were there!!! They kept me and my husband up to date with whats going on and how the day was going - it was great.

My photographers loved the lighting in this place - GREAT PICTURE PLACE!!

All the costs were very reasonably priced as well.

This place is just so amazing for a wedding! I highly recommend!

I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED this venue. Sarah was amazing and so helpful at answering those random questions that I had about anything. The venue itself was so charming and perfect for our vintage theme. I loved everything about the venue - especially that the packages were so inexpensive for our tight budget and that we could bring in our own alcohol. I would recommend this venue time and time again to anyone looking for something with a lot of charm without breaking the bank.

The French Estate is a cute and rustic elegant bed and breakfast. If you are going for that chic, DIY feel, book this place, many have, I heard she's almost booked entirely for the year of 2012 already!!! Sarah is super chill and such a calming force, perfect for that hectic day! She conducted the wedding rehearsal (something I could not have done with so many bridesmaids and groomsmen:17!) She went beyond her duties to make sure everything would go as best as it could... I got married in November of 2011 there and right after a rain storm episode so it got so chilly at night and I wasnt able to afford the heaters, but she took out blankets and hot water for coffee and tea without asking or extra charge!!!! I love this place....I can't wait to rent it out for other events!
