San Juan Capistrano Wedding at Plaza Magdalena

Located just off historic Los Rios Street lies Plaza Magdalena, in San Juan Capistrano. It served as the perfect backdrop for Holly and Cole to celebrate their commitment to one another. The couple’s ceremony glimmered under twinkle lights in the courtyard of Plaza Magdalena right next to Mission San Juan Capistrano.

The wedding day was family filled with different members helping throughout the day. A cousin was the officiant, nephews carried down a “here comes the bride” and “let’s get this party started” banners, Holly’s father capturing every moment with his camera and even her uncle giving a traditional Hawaiian Bonzai toast after dinner. It was truly a night to remember!
