Perfect Venue to Design the Wedding Day of your Dreams
Tucalota Creek Ranch is the perfect place to plan your big day! There are so many picturesque parts of the ranch that serve as the perfect backdrop for your big day. Our fabulous photographer had so much fun with the variety of picturesque areas to shoot our photos. We said our vows outdoors in front of a charming pond, and surrounding trees. We also held our reception outdoors where we had string lights, paper lanterns, and romantic candles to enjoy our party under the stars. My favorite thing about the venue is that I was able to perfectly design our day to be authentically unique to us as a couple. I highly recommend this venue!Sent on 12/06/2018

Outdoor and Rustic with Style
I've had the pleasure of providing our DJ services at this hidden gem in Temecula. If you're searching for a rustic outdoor, barn / equestrian style venue TCR is an awesome place that you must check out. The property is expansive and extremely well maintained. Lots of grass areas and beautifully lit throughout. A huge plus is TCR can accommodate larger weddings. Well over the 150 guest max that many other venues in the area have. The owners, Kay & Alan are wonderful and really care about making sure their wedding couples have the best experience possible. If you're looking for an outdoor bark style wedding, you absolutely have to check them out.Sent on 12/05/2018

The best decision we made for our wedding was to book Tucalota Creek Ranch! We were married in August at sunset, under a shady tree with the perfect nature backdrop. All of our guests complimented our venue choice and how beautiful and rustic the space was. The team at Tucalota Creek turned our ideas and vision into reality. Every detail and moment was under control so that we could enjoy every moment of our special day. We would highly recommend Tucalota Creek Ranch for any wedding or event!!!Sent on 03/19/2019
