Best Temecula Wedding Venues
My husband and I moved from Orange County to the Inland Empire 6 years ago. Of course, once we moved out here my primary concern was what wedding market was closest? I was fortunate to learn the Temecula wedding market was not too far from us at all! Temecula has so much to offer couples getting married, from gorgeous views to award winning food, and duh, fantastic wine! :) As a member of the Temecula Valley Wedding Professionals, I immediately learned that couples all across California look to Temecula as a "local" destination wedding market. Far enough away so it feels different and special, but not so far that your closest friends and family need flights!
There are so many fantastic venues, it's difficult to narrow down to the best Temecula wedding venues, but this list should give you an excellent start! This is a great list to start with as you begin your journey in finding your very own Temecula wedding venue! And I'd definitely recommend pouring a glass of wine while you peruse this list...you deserve it! :)
