As a member of Temecula Valley Wedding Professionals, I have the opportunity each month to see different event venues. The majority of these are venues that host weddings. However, this month I got to see Temecula Hilltop event venue which isn’t a wedding venue, but a luxury rental in the foothills of Temecula! While Temecula weddings are in one of the most beautiful areas in inland southern California (maybe I’m a liiiiiiiiiittle biased), there’s also definitely a shortage of places to stay right on winery row. Temecula Hilltop is not only a great place to stay with your friends and family (4 bedrooms!) but offers ample space for entertainment and one of the best-planned backyards I’ve seen.
I found out a little bit more about the venue from the family. The Annet family invested in the De Portola Estate Winery, which is set to open in 2020. When the adjacent property came up for sale, they decided it was perfect fit to create a luxury neighboring getaway; and eventually, a trail that will lead directly to the winery once it opens! Personally, their favorite parts of the property are the views and the 12-person spa that overlooks the vineyard. The inside is gorgeously decorated as well, as you can view on their image gallery!

Bailey’s Garden Party Rentals provided the lawn games, so fun! We have a version of the oversized Jenga set at home and it’s a blast to play! You just need to jump out of the way before the blocks fall down! :)
Frangipani Winery served up the libations! I love their rosé, it’s the perfect summer rosé! Not too sweet and not too dry!
If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know I was dying over this AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING charcuterie platter made by Creative Catering! So colorful! So yummy! So much prosciutto and mozzarella cheese balls eaten by me! :)
Wicked Cool Desserts makes liquid nitrogen ice cream for events! It really is cool to watch it being done; each serving is made to order! I had the mint chip and it was delicious!
Mark from Sterling Productions bringing the tunes (and personality)!
I took a few quick headshots of the super sweet Elisa of Makeup by Elisa! If you’re looking for a Temecula makeup artist for your wedding day, you’ll want to check her out!
As the sun went down, it was perfect timing for this s’mores bar! Temecula Hilltop has a gas firepit so it was fantastic for getting the perfect char on your marshmallow!
I took these images from the second-story balcony. Isn’t the view breathtaking?
