Getting Ready

Falkner Winery has a designated area above the winery for the bride and her bridal party to get ready. This is a decent-sized space with lots of mirrors and a connected bathroom, making it perfect for hair, make-up, and getting-ready photos!

Not only do the ladies have a space, but the guys do as well! The groomsmen can use the barrel room to get ready. This space is connected to the cocktail hour location, which makes it a convenient space for the guys to get ready

The Ceremony

Talk about a little slice of Tuscany! The ceremony space has a Tuscan feel with touches of tall Italian cypress trees, olive trees, jasmine, and white roses. Because of the landscaping, it feels as though you are in a small Italian vineyard. The space is secluded and separate from the rest of the winery, allowing you to have a peaceful, intimate ceremony.

The Reception

The reception area is right next to the winery building. However, the winery closes at 5:00 pm and your venue coordinator will work with you to set a reception time to have the space to yourself. It is a beautiful green lawn that’s a perfect blank canvas for your wedding vision! This is a fairly large space, 7,000 sq ft, complete with shade and romantic cafe lights.

And last but not least, we did the couples portraits around the property. You will have access to all the grounds for your bridal portraits. But for this couple, we opted to focus on the vineyards and the long walkway with those stunning cypress trees.

This day was the perfect winery wedding and I love the Tuscan feel of this Temecula winery wedding venue. When you are ready to start planning your wedding at Falkner Winery and are looking for your dream photographer, hit me up! I’d love to get to know you and your wedding plans!
