The Estate on Second is a magnificent historical building nestled in the heart of Santa Ana. The building has been renovated to give it a modern contemporary look with a dash of gorgeous Georgian colonial style which combines to create a unique wedding experience. Georgian colonial culture is heavily influenced by 16th-century architecture.
