First off, let me say Congratulations to you and your fiance. I am sure your first thought, if you are like me after my fiance popped the question was "Where are we going to get married!?". Ok, actually my first thought was ... "Omg I can't wait to go dress shopping!!" but lets face it I've secretly had my eye on the design for a while.
As a soon to be bride myself and a local Temecula Murrieta Wedding Photographer, my fiancé and I did a lot of research when hunting for the best Temecula and Murrieta Wedding Venue. Let me tell you we found some pretty amazing properties as well as a few duds during our search. Below, you'll see our Top 3 Temecula and Murrieta Wedding Venues.
There were days I thought we'd never be able to find the perfect location for our wedding, but after a lot of search and narrowing down based on location, availability, cost and overall wedding appeal here is what we came up with! We found beautiful locations that are perfect for just about any wedding size. From Intimate Elopements to large Extravagant Ceremony's and everything in between!
1. Tres Lagos Weddings
Tres Lagos is located in the beautiful hills of Murrieta. The locals refer to the hills as La Cresta or Santa Rose Plateau. The approximate 20 minute drive from the 15 freeway through the hilltop countryside brings you to a very beautiful lush property which features a beautiful white gazebo surrounded by water, mature oak trees, a small vineyard, walking paths, wooden bridges and 3 spectacular ponds (lakes). There is also an adorable (3) bedroom bridal suite on the property to host your bridal party gathering the day of the wedding; which can also be rented out for you and your bridal party to stay at the night prior to the wedding. You and your bridal team can easily get ready in the bridal suite the day of your wedding.
Kim of Tres Lagos Weddings encourages couples just like you to customize their beautiful wedding the way they'd like it. You'll want twork with Kelly Winter of Nomad Nuptials. Kelly offers beautiful vintage and modern decor for your wedding day. They can also help you secure a grooms suite if needed and wanted too!
Besides getting married there in September I have also had the pleasure of photographing my clients at this amazing location.

2. Callaway Vineyard & Winery
You'll find Callaway Vineyard & Winery nestled in top of a hill within the heart of Temecula Valley Wine County. From their Cyprus lined driveway to their award winning vineyard, you are surely going to find Callaway to be a beautiful location to say your vows and host your reception. Callaway offers a bridal suites as well as grooms suite. Though Callaway can be on the pricey side for weddings, it was #2 on our list.
