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. Larger events, up to 250 guests, can utilize the entire courtyard for dinner seating, first floor and terrace. 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 used Stadium Tavern (aka Fullerton Brew Co) for our caterer and they knocked it out of the park. The employees worked so hard and Tom Dow was very accommodating whenever we needed anything. The food was soooo good. We had such high expectations for them and they delivered to the max.

Shawna was so professional and helpful planning our wedding at this venue. She made everything move smooth and even came into town from a family trip a few hours away just to make sure everything went smooth the night of the wedding. We were so happy with the venue and Stadium Tavern.

The Villa Del Sol is an amazing venue. When we first saw it we knew it would be the perfect place for the most special day in our lives. Shawna was awesome and always available for us. The venue has so much character and very romantic. Our family and guest were so shocked as to how beautiful everything was. I cannot imagine any other place for our wedding. Our wedding pictures were absolutely gorgeous! Highly recommend this venue.

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.

My husband and I recently held our ceremony and reception at Villa Del Sol on 8/3/2013. It was beautiful and everything we could have ever wanted. The location is great, downtown Fullerton is very cute and it has lots of great boutiques and restaurants nearby.

Working with Ruth Davies (Director of Special Events for Villa Del Sol) was a breeze. She was always available to answer any questions, and I definitely had a lot! She even put together the 6th and final (a result of my OCD) table arrangement at 9pm the night before the wedding!

We chose Cafe Hidalgo to cater the wedding. This is not your typical wedding food; it was nothing short of amazing. They even made a special vegan plate for myself and a handful of our guests. Usually when restaurants don't specialize in vegan food, you basically get rice and veggies or pasta and veggies. Not at Cafe Hidalgo, my guests and I received a vegan enchilada with a cashew cream sauce, Spanish rice and beans. It was beyond delicious.

We also hired Dena David of Cafe Hidalgo as our wedding coordinator. I don't even have words special enough to describe this lady. She is sweet, friendly, organized to a T, and creative. I had a lot of DIY ceremony and reception decor items that her and her staff were able to set up for me, they even packed them up within 10 minutes at the end of the night and put them in our car for us! I didn't even give her a picture of what I was looking for; I guess just talking with me about my vision was all she needed. She was able to capture the exact look I was going for (bohemian, country-chic). She even threw little touches in there that we hadn't originally talked about that really just topped the whole decor look off.

If you are thinking about hosting your wedding here, do not hesitate. The price is right, the staff and catering is top-notch, and where else can you have an outdoor wedding reception until 12am in Southern California? Stop looking; Villa Del Sol is it!

My wedding at the Villa del Sol was exactly what my husband and I wanted. Ruth was nothing but professional, helpful, upbeat, and was obviously willing to go the extra mile for her couples. Being from out of town, none of our guests had been to the Villa before, and they were blown away by it. It has that great California vibe while being beautiful and simple. I was completely satisfied with the service provided at the Villa as well as all of my vendors.

I recently had my wedding reception at the Villa Del Sol, and absolutely loved it! The Villa turns into an beautiful, romantic, secluded courtyard at night. We had so many complements from our guests on what great venue it was. Ruth Davies was really great to work with and was always quick to respond to emails and even encouraged texting for quicker responses. I would definitely recommend the Villa Del Sol to anyone planning a wedding or event!

This venue was stunning! From day to night. Ruth Davies, managed special events for the Villa and she was unbelievable! She answered any question I had within minutes via text or e-mail. She was super helpful; on the day of the wedding before I was going to walk down the aisle, totally forgot my dress was bustled for pictures. She asked if I wanted it like that and I freaked out and said no...she quickly took the bustle down 2 minutes before I walked just in time. Whew! Thanks Ruth your the best. Rest assure, one thing you will be certain about if you book the Villa is Ruth will have your back! ;) Another perk for booking the villa...you have it from 5-12am...that's a good amount of time, compared to other venues.
Also, I highly recommended you choose Cafe Hidalgo as your caterer. The service was exceptional and the food, as our guest described was really good considering its wedding food. Keep in mind- it is buffet but also keep in mind its served buffet- making it better than traditional buffet because you choose what you want and there is someone there to place it on your plate.
Lastly, for all the brides out there, I know you are at the top of your spending dollars but hiring Dena David from Cafe Hidalgo as the day of the.event coordinator is a must. She relieved so much stress for me. The ceremony and whole event wouldn't have ran so smoothly as it did without her. She knows the dos and don't of the venue. The decor was absolutely more gorgeous than I anticipated. She even arranged the flowers on my.cake and it looked amazing! Anything my fiance need she made sure we had, she even cut.cheese to eat with crackers because my.fiance was starving. She is absolutely amazing- you.have to hire her. Well worth the money. Overall, this venue was so beautiful great place to dance and just a great ambiance and is surrounded by amazing people who love their job! :) Thanks Ruth and Dena! You two are the best!
