Beautiful and Unique Venue with Excellent Staff!
We just got married at Temecula Creek Cottages last weekend and it was so much better than we could have ever imagined!!!
THE VENUE: There is a large outdoor area for the ceremony and reception. The grounds are beautiful and well manicured. We booked all six of the cottages for the weekend of our wedding and having everyone together was very special.
WHAT YOU GET: Included in the cost of the venue rental, you also get their coordinator Jules, two cottages for one night (one bridal and one groom cottage) and a bartender. On the day of the event, Bliss and Damien were there for set up and to make sure everything went well. All included!!!
VENDORS: Bring your own everything!!! Some venues charge $15,000 for the venue and then they make you use their vendors and require purchase minimums. Not here! If you need help, they can suggest their preferred vendors, but we hired our own food service and did the appetizers ourselves. There is no pressure to go with anyone they've used before. We purchased and brought all of the booze, cups, napkins, etc. The bartender on staff told us how much of everything we needed to bring based on our guest count and he was so right on. You do have to lug everything down there, but once you get it there they take over. So worth it!!!!
We wanted a pub/backyard/casual feel, so we did end up renting some tables that they didn't have available there. Jules arranged that for us and the pricing was very reasonable, not to mention she handled the drop off/pick up.
FLOWERS: You can use your own vendor, but Jules is also available (for a fee) to do floral decorations, bouquets, boutonnieres, etc. We wanted to keep our ceremony simple and low in cost, but I did have a bouquet and had Jules do some accent greenery and florals to tie in our tables with the blooming flowers at the venue. She was very reasonable and knows what she is doing! I told her my budget and gave her the freedom to just make it beautiful, which she did.
JULES: She needs her own section. I am a self-proclaimed control freak and am used to being the planner for everything. As soon as I met Jules, I knew I could trust her to make our day perfect. We booked a year in advance and she was in constant communication. She is very organized and makes you feel comfortable. On our wedding day I had total confidence that she would make sure everything was seamless, which she did. If you are the same way, you can tell her what you want/need and she will make it happen. Trust me!
Should out to Bliss & Damien too. Everyone was fantastic!
THE EVENT: Everyone was so impressed with the venue and the staff. I would describe the atmosphere at the Cottages as outdoor elegance, but we got the backyard wedding feel we wanted. We really cannot thank everyone there for giving us the best wedding ever!!!!
Make an appointment to see the venue and you will not be disappointed.Sent on 09/21/2020

The perfect wedding!
Temecula Creek Cottages was the perfect venue for our small COVID wedding! I came across the venue and the wedding coordinator, Julie, a few weeks before our wedding since our other venue was closed and I am so glad that we did. It seems as though everything happens for a reason! Julie was absolutely wonderful and I knew from the second I spoke to her that she understood my vision and was so helpful in making our dream wedding come true! She also did my flowers and they were beautiful! It was the most perfect day and I am so happy with how everything turned out! Thanks Jules!Sent on 07/16/2020
Temecula Creek Cottages's reply:My pleasure!

Amazing venue and service!
Where do I begin! My husband and I were the last wedding here before the COVID-19 quarantine took place! The weekend of our special day was some of the most horrible rain storms that had hit Southern California by far at that time! That being said we had tents put up and the venue itself was still as gorgeous as without them! We were so blessed to have a break in the weather the actual day of our wedding but we’re still thankful for those tents for holding the heat in. I would recommend this venue a million times over again to anyone wanting an outdoor wedding! We had a rustic theme and the venue itself was perfect for what we had visioned! The staff was all AMAZING! The newly renovated landscape, cottages, lights, ceremony and reception area were all perfect! The built in bar and bathrooms are pretty awesome too! For the bad luck (non- wedding and weather) leading up to our day we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect venue and staff to make it all so perfect! I would give 10 stars for this venue! Jules the on-site coordinator is by far the BEST!Sent on 05/03/2020
