  • I cannot stress how incredible and vital Patti was to my wedding! From giving me a second tasting since my husband was deployed to communicating nonstop and giving me tons of advice and pictures for inspiration! The food was phenomenal and everyone LOVED it! We all had a blast and had an amazing ceremony as well. Patti was so accommodating to my guests and to my husband and I! I recommend them all the time!

  • My husband and I had the pleasure of holding both our wedding ceremony and reception at Plaza de Magdalena on 10-1-16! Everything was absolutely PERFECT!! Patti and her staff were very helpful from day 1 and made our special day everything we could have ever hoped for. Our cocktail hour and dinner were delicious. Even several weeks after the wedding our guests still tell us how much they loved the food and they had so much fun. THANK YOU PLAZA DE MAGDALENA!! Love Mark and Rebecca

  • We had our wedding at Plaza De Magdalena on September 10th, 2016. We had the ceremony and cocktail hour in the courtyard and the reception in the ballroom. I had approximately 200 guests and everything was magical and FLAWLESS, If you are considering Plaza De Magdalena, just BOOK it! I promise that you won't be disappointed. Patti and her team are true professionals and a pleasure to work with and they go above and beyond for their brides. The courtyard transforms into a beautiful and magical setting for the ceremony. We had the entire bridal party come down the stairs which was amazing. After the ceremony, Patti's team transitioned the courtyard into cocktail hour and within minutes, the chairs were gone, the cocktail tables were placed and all were enjoying tray passed appetizers (which my guests are still raving about) and drinks from the bar. The ballroom was amazing with the lighting and set up. Our guests truly enjoyed the food and drinks and danced the night away... Read more

  • We recently had our wedding and reception at Plaza de Magdalena and could not be happier with the venue! Patti is great to work with and goes above and beyond to make the day run smoothly. She gave us a great list of vendors (as suggestions) to work with, and was helpful in answering all of our questions. Her staff is also amazing, and we were very appreciative of how well they took care of not only us, but also our guests. Many of our guests complimented the food, but also the beautiful venue and location. It's located nearby the Los Rios district and the Mission San Juan Capistrano making it ideal for pictures. We both had an amazing time at the venue and highly recommend it!

  • We had our wedding here on 5/22/16. Plaza de Magdalena was the first location we visited and we loved it. It was an incredible day, the venue is the perfect place for any event. The food is incredible, the tomato soup shots and wonton chip with blackened ahi is to die for. The rest of their food is ridiculously amazing too. Patti is wonderful, attentive and ready to answer any question quickly. The courtyard provides a serene place to have a ceremony and the reception area is big and open with a beautiful stone wall on one end. The bridal and groom's suites are nicely sized and comfortable for the bridal parties. It's near the Mission in San Juan and the Los Rios District as well which are perfect backdrops for photos. They provide the tables, linens, napkins and nice white plates. It was nice that everything was included in their pricing. We didn't have to worry about much besides the DJ and extra decor. I loved that I was able to bring in some of my own DIY decor and set it up on the... Read more

  • We were so lucky to have found Plaza de Magdalena!! We had our wedding 4/30/16 and it was perfect!! We were so impressed from the food, to the coordinating, to the actual day of! Everything went off perfectly!! This is truly a beautiful venue, where they treat you like people, not just "another bride and groom". The food was absolutely delicious; stuffed chicken breast, gourmet mac n cheese, crisp fresh salads. Patti was a complete joy to work with!

  • I really enjoyed having my wedding at Plaza de Magdalena. Patti was amazing and super flexible. She was also responsive through phone and email. Our guest really enjoyed the venue and he amazing food during cocktail hour. We had a lunch reception and the natural sunlight through the windows in the back of the venue was great. I would definitely recommend this place to another bride :)

  • Just photographed a wedding reception here this weekend and everything turned out perfectly. The venue was very accommodating to the bride and groom and let them bring in their set up early and made their night by letting them do a sparkler exit for their way out. The staff was very courteous and friendly and the food was amazing. Looking forward to shooting there again this Spring.

  • If you are unsure at all, do a taste testing! That will help make your decision for you! The food here is absolutely fantastic! People aren't going to remember all the small details of your wedding, but they are going to remember how good the food was! Overall, Patti was wonderful to work with. It is a very affordable venue and very beautiful. It allows for so many different styles or types of weddings. Besides a few minor details, we couldn't have been happier about our day!
