Our wedding was absolutely beautiful! Having a winery as the backdrop was stunning. Our wedding felt very unique and elegant with very little decor. What more do you need then the bride/groom and wedding party flowers, centerpieces flowers with a beautiful lush winery around....not much! Our wedding pictures came out beautifully as well. Getting to the winery could have be a little tricky, but using wedding mapper made it very easy for out guest to find the venue. Our day was pretty much perfect!
Leonesse Cellars is by far my favorite winery in Temecula in terms of the views, the privacy, and the layout! Additionally, I loved that they only have ONE wedding a day and did not have restaurants which stay open during our wedding, unlike MANY of the other wineries. However, we did have our fair share of problems. My huge complaint would be the wedding coordinator. She was NOT very helpful and all and is VERY opinionated. Maybe times I would ask her questions and her responses would NOT answer my questions, but just state HER opinions. Thus, I would need to constantly re-ask my questions and when I would make decision I would also need to re-state my decisions as well, as she apparently was NOT very organized and would ask me over and over again. She also was NOT able to come up with the correct price for our upgraded proposal for the food!!! She gave my father 4 incorrect proposal prices. The last proposal was almost $10,000 off!!! My father had to be the one to lay everything out in a spread sheet to show her what the coast should be and where she was making mistakes and NO I AM NOT KIDDING! IT WAS COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS !!!I'm sorry, but it does not require my brains to add some numbers together. If you have a wedding coordinator or have PLENTY of time to work with this venue then it would be a great place. I do not regret my decision to have our wedding here and ALL of our guests LOVED our wedding. Just be organized and patient!
Pechange had nice rooms, but their pool is very very small...their air ventilation systems it not that great as their smoke free rooms small like smoke, and their spa while looks great, is lacking is experienced workers. I got my hair done on my wedding day and I could not believe that the lady did not know how to blow out hair! My hair looked horrible...so I had her though curlers in it so it looked like someone blew out my hair...but my the end of the night my hair was a reck.
