heritage museums

8 Aug

We love the idea of using state parks, museums, or natural/historic centers for our wedding venue because it’s very eco-friendly and green. With that said, any of the above mentioned venues take a portion, if not all of the proceeds and donates it for preservation and/or education, etc. On top of that, all national and state parks, museums, and historic centers are super budget-friendly, just fyi for future brides. 😉 In fact, we looked at two outdoor heritage museums, one being in Orange County, and the other being in greater Los Angeles.

Heritage Museum of Orange County

This museum is located in a quiet pocket in Santa Ana, and is surrounded by lots of trees, perfect for an outdoor ceremony/reception. The site hosts up to 250 people, and what we loved most about this place are the options! Besides having a gorgeous backdrop of trees and historic houses, there are several open garden spaces to choose from whether you choose to have your ceremony under the garden gazebo, or just your reception in the canopied brick patio.

If this museum wasn’t so far of a drive for us, it would definitely make my TOP TWO choices for our wedding venues! I absolutely fell in love with this outdoor location. It is very similar to the above mentioned Heritage Museum of Orange County, except the scenery is a little more colorful and vintage-looking. It has all the components I love, including the romantic under-the-trees setting, along with the quirky, colorful vintage backdrop that makes it so much fun. I totally saw a lot of creative potential for this venue, and still keep it in mind. 🙂
