Located minutes from wine country in Temecula, California, the wedding venue of Temecula Creek Cottages offers couples a historic and rustic event space. The owners wanted to create a space that truly represented the Temecula they love and spent two years renovating the site to accommodate special events and overnight accommodations. Nestled in a canyon among 100-year-old oak trees, couples have access to the entire pet-friendly property to host their outdoor wedding. Featuring beautifully landscaped grounds and seasonal gardens, the former granite quarry allows a peaceful, romantic setting for such a happy occasion.
Facilities and Capacity
When guests arrive at Temecula Creek Cottages, they can use the offered parking and wheelchair access, then socialize under large oak and almond trees while waiting for the ceremony to begin. For larger weddings, we offer valet parking. The natural scrub oaks, granite boulders, and mountainside background provide a relaxing, quiet setting for ceremonies, receptions, and elopements, as well as bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. A bridal suite is offered in the form of a private cottage, containing the necessary elements to become wedding-ready. Under market lightings and shady trees, couples can exchange their vows in front of 150 friends and family. The cocktail area is located just feet away, with oak wine barrels used as unique tables. At the reception area, a dance floor provides space for entertainment, while the lawn area can be used to set up games.
While Temecula Creek Cottages has a list of preferred vendors, they also permit couples to invite their own event vendors. The venue has an experienced personal wedding planner, and an on-site venue manager who will assist in all aspects of your wedding planning and execution of all the details on your rehearsal and wedding day. The facility offers linens, as well as their own bartenders to assist in serving any alcohol the couple decides to supply.
This wedding venue also houses six individual, fully furnished cottages that can be rented overnight. Each cottage is set in a secluded area and is uniquely decorated. The cottages may feature large decks, shaded sitting areas, overhanging nut trees, or extra-large bathrooms depending on which one is booked.

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
