The Villa Del Sol courtyard is a one of a kind, welcoming al fresco oasis nestled in the heart of Downtown Fullerton.

This original Spanish Colonial historic landmark with its rich architecture and alluring center courtyard make it the perfect venue for an outdoor wedding and reception or any special event. To be reserved for two hours or the full rental time of seven hours, until midnight.

Beautifully landscaped with islands of palm trees, bubbling fountain, greenery and flowers, the courtyard also boasts picture perfect archways, wrought-iron railings and towering turrets amidst the three stories surrounding the charming courtyard. There are many additional picturesque backdrops adjacent to the Villa Del Sol such as the ivy covered breezeway just off Wilshire on the south side of the venue.

The second floor terrace is an awesome attribute to the Villa Del Sol, guests can visit the terrace and enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before taking their seats on the first level for the reception. Festive market lights across the courtyard will cast a magical glow over the scene as your guests dine and dance under the stars! Read less

We got married here and I cannot put into words how beautiful, magical, and well organized it was. It was seriously a DREAM. We looked at several historic venues in Orange and LA counties, and for the price VDS topped them all. Shawna was easy going and fantastic to work with - she walked us through the table/chair/linen rentals with ease and kept us on track in the months leading up to the wedding. We chose Cafe Hidalgo as our caterer and hired Dena David (the Cafe Hidalgo catering manager) as our wedding coordinator and that was pretty much the BEST DECISION EVER. We had so many compliments about the food and the venue and 100 percent thanks to Dena and Shawna our wedding went off without a single hiccup. Everything looked AMAZING. No matter how many beautiful photos you look at, nothing - NOTHING - does the venue justice when it's dark, you're sitting at your sweetheart table, the al fresco lights are twinkling, your guests are laughing and the candles are flickering. The only way to describe it is like something out of a movie. Perfect.

Besides how beautiful it all is, I cannot rave enough about how this place operates like a well-oiled machine. The other venue we were seriously considering was pretty DIY - a "here's the key, be out by midnight" type of situation. At VDS everyone works together to throw events almost every weekend. You can rest assured the tables and chairs will arrive. Almost every vendor we used knew VDS/Cafe Hidalgo/Dena by name. I literally would book someone, and they'd already know exactly where and when to appear on our wedding day. We absolutely loved this venue.

Omg loved my wedding venue! Such a romantic place! I went for a spanish, rustic, villa theme and let me tell you, everyone told us how beautiful the place was. You can easily switch up the feel of it, from an elegant wedding to a casual tropical theme as well. Its a very unique place where you can have your ceremony and reception, which saved us time and money. Shawna is the contact person for the venue, she was really nice and worked really well with Dena at Cafe Hidalgo who was our wedding coordinator and caterer. It made my job easier as a Bride to work with companies and women that work professionally and so accommodating to making the whole process easy.

When I walked into Villa del sol, i fell in love with the natural beauty of it. You don't have to do much to it as the place is gorgeous as is. It is a smaller venue, which was fine with me and my fiance (now husband) because we were planning on a small wedding and it worked out perfectly. The venue provides numerous wonderful wedding photo opportunities near the fountain, Hotel California sign, on the terrace etc. The venue director, Shawna stepped in half way through the process, as the original director quit, and didn't miss a beat! She was so down to earth and a pleasure to work with.

The Villa Del Sol was the beautiful venue for our wedding. The space is beautiful, & based on the services provided (courtyard area & tables/linens/chairs) couples have the freedom & ability to select other outside vendors (flowers, cake, choice of several restaurants on site for catering). This is the place for couples looking outside of all-inclusive type venues. We had 120 guests & the space worked great. Would not recommend for larger guest lists (more than 150). The weather was warm, but the courtyard space was completely shaded for the reception. Would have added umbrellas to second balcony for cocktail hour since sun was still out at 5pm.

The second my husband and I saw the Villa, we immediately fell in love with it. We wanted to have a wedding reception venue that was different from your standard golf course country club reception, and this was exactly what we were looking for. It was perfect for a summer wedding, and it looked absolutely beautiful at night when the al fresco lights turned on. We had 200 guests at our wedding, and they were comfortable and never felt too crowded because there is so much space on the terrace. All of our guest tables were downstairs, and reserved the upstairs for cocktail tables and the photo booth.

I highly recommend this venue! We absolutely loved it!

This place is great for a medium sized wedding! We were planning on having a 150 wedding there, but turned out to be 120 and it was the perfect amt!!! IT looked amazing at night w. the twinkling lights, the band, the food our flowers! Everything was on point! The coordinator is really responsive, knows a lot and allowed to us to have a band as long as it ended by 10pm! Overall great experience, the bridal showcase is worth a visit! I loved this place because its has its own flair, its also outside w.out being too outside, like having to deal w. flies and stuff! ITS PERFECT! I thought it would be awkward that there are restaurants and business around the courtyard but no one really cares! Its great!

When first booking The Villa Del Sol, I fell in love with the place. The location is central and it provides amazing photo opportunities, which was a huge draw for me. The venue is visually stunning and does not require a ton of of decorations because of the natural beauty. However it is on the smaller side, our 95 guest wedding seemed to fit the venue perfectly. Although I am sure that they can make a lot work with the hallways too.
Aside from a few inconvenience, which I wont go into because I truly think they were isolated incidents, I am happy that our wedding was held here. Shawna the event coordinator was a great asset and really came through for us in the end.
Overall the cost is on the higher end, but it is one of the few Fullerton venues I found, so the cost was workable for me. If you are considering having a wedding here, I highly recommend going to one of their bridal shows, as they gave a great overview.

The Villa Del Sol is an oasis in the middle of Fullerton and provides an amazing background for small to medium wedding.

Ruth and Shawna helped make my daughters wedding something we will smile about forever. Although there were moments of miscommunication, they worked with us in everyway to fullfill our wishes and keep things running smoothly.
Ruth went the extra mile to allow us to store wedding items in her office, deliver things early and accomidate special requests. They made what could have been a very stressful day run smoothly.
(Shawna and her assistant were life savers.) As the mother of the bride, they took care of the tasks that would have kept me from enjoying the evening and allowed me to be stress free knowing they were handled.
Stadium Tavern catered. The food was delicious and out guests loved every bite of it. Tom worked with us to make a menu that was full and delicious and within our budget. He provided plenty and even packed up the leftovers for the Newlyweds. (Which at 2:00 in the the morning was very appreciated!)
The whole evening was beautiful. Our guests were comfortable and had a great time. My daughter and her new husband are so happy and the whole wedding turned out better than we ever could have imagined.
Thank you again!
