Venues & Banquet Halls

Let Santa Ana serve as the backdrop for your picture-perfect wedding. With well-preserved structures downtown that feel like a trip back in time to elegant farmhouse-ranch settings that boast gorgeous spaces for dining with family and friends, there’s a venue to complement your wedding style in the city of celebrations. 

The Yost

The Yost has stood as an iconic downtown landmark and one of Orange County’s most dynamic indoor venues since the early 1900s. The theater boasts five newly renovated spaces that still preserve the building's 1920s charm, providing guests with the perfect mix of classic and modern amenities. 

Guests can choose between a variety of event hosting areas — including the indoor mezzanine area, the fenced-in patio area underneath the iconic Yost marquee, the private upstairs loft, and the historic lobby — which features classic design elements like mirrored ceilings and chandeliers — or even in the main theater itself, which features an open floor plan with original chandelier lighting, a tin ceiling, and exposed brick among other rustic design elements.  

Heritage Museum of Orange County     

Spending time at this Victorian jewel of a venue feels like a trip back in time to a quaint, 19th-century country estate. 

The Heritage Museum of Orange County is tucked away on multiple lush acres of landscaping, including scenic citrus groves. The venue offers many picturesque spots for photos — including a historic plaza and a spacious covered patio. Tie the knot in a beautiful ceremony in front of Victorian buildings and beautiful gardens.

Estate on Second

The Estate on Second is a classic 100-plus-year-old historic building with a Georgian design. It feels like a well-preserved landmark and offers guests a full-service venue. There are five restored and renovated indoor and outdoor spaces on-site, which can accommodate both large and small gatherings. The exposed beams, brick, and original wood floors pay homage to the structure’s history — and the natural light flooding in from the arched Palladian windows create a sense of openness. 

Choose between a variety of event hosting spots — from indoor areas like the spacious, elegant crystal ballroom or the attic, which is a more intimate setting — to outdoor spaces like the terrace, which boasts views of the city skyline, or the veranda, which is a ground-level terrace lounge patio setting.   

The Hacienda

Once functioning as a working avocado and orange ranch, The Hacienda has been a Santa Ana landmark since 1901, and has stood the test of time to today offer a venue space with historic charm and a classic sense of Spanish-style architectural allure. 

There are multiple romantic event area options on-site, including the Taos Courtyard, the indoor Taos Room, the Inner Courtyard, and the Cantina Courtyard — each of which provide their own unique layout and capacity. Design elements include picturesque balconies entwined in ivy, courtyards dotted with lush plants and fountains, cozy fireplaces, and awe-inspiring grand staircases, which serve as a beautiful backdrop.  

Those are just a few of the many wedding venues and banquet halls in town. See more below:
