Heritage Museum of Orange County
3101 West Harvard Street
Santa Ana, CA

Museums are also fun and unique places for weddings or other events, and the Heritage Museum of Orange County is no exception. Located in Santa Ana, the Museum offers the perfect spot for your garden wedding, featuring rose gardens, jasmine-laden trellises and citrus blossoms. There are several spots at the Museum you can choose for your ceremony, including the gazebo, rose garden or fountain plaza in front of the Kellog House. The folks at the Museum seem pretty relaxed, even stating on their website that you can set up whatever you like on the grounds: tents, dance floors, "even a bounce house for the kids." That's pretty laid back.

For more information you can call them at 714-540-0404 x223 or email them at weddings@centennialmuseum.org.
