Temecula Wine Country Wedding

Guests walk down a paved pathway among ancient oak trees to meadows and a historic stone cottage. Built in the late 1800’s as a bunkhouse for quarry workers, this picturesque spot is a romantic setting for both a wedding ceremony and reception.

After the wedding, the bride and groom can retreat into a one bedroom suite with access to the swimming pool. The suite contains a king size bed, oversized patio, golf course and rolling hill views.

Before or after the wedding, guests can hit a bucket of balls or play a round of golf on the 27-hole championship set among 300 acres of natural beauty. The elevated greens challenges all levels of players.

Plan a wine tasting tour for your guests with the help of The Grapeline shuttle. Their semi-open buses offer an insider tour of some of the 40+ wineries in the Temecula Valley. Have guests meet in the lobby, and board for a half or full-day wine experience. A picnic lunch can be arranged among the vineyards before returning back to the resort or in between visiting a few more tasting rooms.

Offer a Hot Air Balloon ride for guests to soar up high and have a bird’s eye view of the vineyards, or arrange a horseback vineyard tour by Wine Country Trails. One of the tour packages includes a 90 minute horseback tour and visit to Maurice Car’rie winery for a five glass wine tasting experience.

The wedding planners at the resort will help with your engagement announcements, flowers, entertainment and dance lessons. Choose one of the popular reception and wedding menu packages, or custom create your own special wedding dinner with the resort’s culinary team.

Weddings in the meadows can accommodate up to 150 people on the ceremonial lawn. The tree-lined venue can be set with a covered lounge with swinging chairs, firepits and couches. A dance floor can be installed for dancing under the stars.

Venue hours are from 4 to 10 p.m. The typical cost for 100 guests begins at $15,000.
