Our videographers have done numerous events in Orange County. It is definitely filled with many locations conducive to achieving great High Definition wedding videography products. Depending on which survey you read, Orange County is considered either the second or third largest county in the state of California. Although Orange County is not a city, it is similar to Los Angeles in that it does not really have a central location that would epitomize its area. Typically, when one refers to Los Angeles, they normally are referring to the entire Los Angeles area including its neighboring cities. For example, one might live in the city of Pasadena or Hollywood. But to people outside of the Southern California area they may refer to their home as Los Angeles. Orange County follows that same norm. For example, if one lives in the city of Anaheim, they may claim to others that they are from Orange County.
But this decentralized characteristic evident in both Los Angeles and Orange County also suggests certain diversity. There is diversity in its people, its culture, its lifestyle, and its scenery. Such diversity exists in of course locations that would be spectacular for wedding celebrations. Like the city of angels, Orange County is filled with magnificent landscaping, artistic architecture, and beautiful beaches.
Rancho Capistrano Ministries, Orange County
One of Orange County's popular locations to hold a wedding is the Rancho Capistrano Ministries located in San Juan Capistrano which is in the southern part of Orange County. If you are looking for a Spanish style location then look no further. Ceremonies can be held in their Spanish courtyard just outside of its adobe style house made in the 1800s. Couples and their guests can enjoy the beautiful scenery of its lake which is surrounded by lush greenery. For those seeking an indoor ceremony, there is also a church available. We once provided a wedding videographer this Orange County location during the month of May in which the service and celebration were scheduled to be outside. To the couple's misfortune it began to rain heavily throughout their wedding day. This church absolutely came in handy which allowed the ceremony to go forward.
After the ceremony, the Rancho Capistrano Ministries have a large reception area. Its Spanish patio and courtyard offer a wonderful setting because of its magnificent landscaping. Within the courtyard are well crafted fountains and other Spanish architecture. During the wedding in which it rained, the Rancho Capistrano Ministries provided tents and heaters which were very effective in keeping the reception area dry and warm protecting not only our wedding videography equipment but most importantly the guests and couple.
Coto de Caza in Orange County
Another Orange County hot spot for weddings is the Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club. Located in Coto de Caza, which is also in the southern area of Orange County, this golf course is much different than many other country clubs. This facility offers both outdoor and indoor accommodations for your wedding reception to take place. But one of its more notable aspects our videography team noticed was its outdoor pavilion. Again, the surrounding landscaping is absolutely a must see. It is also located next to a terrace overlooking a beautiful waterfall this Orange County country club. While our videographers were providing services at this location for a couple, we notice a nice stairway in which the bridal party and newlyweds would walk down during their grand entrance. This created a great effect because from where the people in the audience were sitting they would not be able to see each bridal party member until they had walked completely down. This allowed a pleasant sense of anticipation in the final wedding video.
