Gorgeous and historical, the Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano is a beautiful church in the heart of one of California’s most charming towns. Also, it has plenty to offer to those looking for an authentic religious wedding experience. Located just steps from its doors are the picturesque ruins that date back as early as 1812. And can serve well for post-ceremony photos too.
In addition, the inside alone will leave you speechless! From enchanting stained glass windows to its gold leafing, it is indeed an intricate architectural figure. A sight truly worth seeing, if you find yourself anywhere near this special place! Not to mention, it is a gorgeously spiritual place for a wedding! So, if you are Catholic and live within its boundaries, this is the perfect location to get married in an old-fashioned style with stunning views of nature from all sides. Located next door from an old mission, they offer ceremonies done in a traditional style but with much more modern touches.
Also, this church is a golden sanctuary. The mural work inside of it has some really interesting designs. Which are unlike anything you would find in Orange County! Especially churches from this time period, ranging from the common elements seen during the roaring 1960s and 1970s. This one is an absolute joy both inside and out!
