Standing tall and looking out over Orange County is The Christ Cathedral. In the local community, it is also known as The Crystal Cathedral because of its magnificent windows and crystal-like beauty. This glass building was designed by American architect Philip Johnson and was completed in 1981.
The stunning cathedral is a one of a kind location to have a wedding. With a ceiling made entirely of glass, the space allows ceremonies to be conducted with a beautiful, clear view of the sky. A towering organ sits at the front of the cathedral making it even more awe-inspiring. The cathedral is spacious and able accommodate very large weddings up to 2,736 people seated. The space alone will take your breath away and ensure that your wedding guests will have a memorable experience.
On-site there is plenty of parking and maps available online to easily navigate the campus. Aside from the Christ Cathedral, there are many other spectacular, eye-catching buildings, including the Crean Tower and the Tower of Hope.
If you want to visit this location to see it with your own eyes, tours of the campus are held Monday through Saturday. The Christ Cathedral hosts many events throughout the year, so if this is your dream location, make sure you save your date far ahead of time.
*For the time being the Cathedral is currently closed and is estimated to open again in 2016.
