As one of our favorite wedding venues in Temecula, the Retro Ranch offers an extremely lovely and intimate ceremony site nestled in the oak tree mountains. Walk down the aisle after entering through French doors and say your vows under a rustic wooden arbor. The Arbor is completely customizable, and the seating arrangements can be mixed up, as well. After the ceremony, your guests will feel extra cozy at the cocktail courtyard that sits underneath mimosa trees. The area features wine barrel cocktail tables, vintage furniture and seating, and the coolest Malm fireplace. Everything is topped off with vintage strung café lights creating the perfect ambiance. After cocktail hour, everyone can get their groove on under café strung lights and vintage crystal chandeliers or grab a signature cocktail at the handmade wood pallet bar. The venue’s 1968 Airstream makes for the perfect photo backdrop.


What’s more, the Retro Ranch offers a variety of lodging areas for out-of-town guests or even your honeymoon suite. The best part about this Temecula wedding venue? The owners have made it their mission to “give back,” so every couple that walks down the aisle gets to pick a charity of their choice to which some of their proceeds will be donated.

2 | The Blue Moon Ranch

Yet another gorgeous ranch is next up on our list of Temecula wedding venues. The Blue Moon is the perfect spot for a variety of different wedding themes and a little touch of rustic flare. This Temecula wedding venue allows for endless customization when it comes to decor.

It would be great for DIY brides or those that want a unique theme that truly shows their personality as a couple. You will fall in love with this dreamy space and its scenic views. The ranch has multiple barns to utilize for a reception space, ceremony backdrop, and the perfect photo op.

As the second one of our favorite Temecula wedding venues, the Blue Moon Ranch offers four different wedding packages for couples to choose from and to meet their budget needs. Their most exclusive and expensive package accommodates up to 150 people while including the ceremony, reception, and backyard cocktail spaces; ranch tables and chairs; the cutest private bridal quarters; a bartender and bar set up; assisted valet parking (bonus!); and linens.

3 | Wolf Feather Honey Farm

With a name like that, how could this space not be amazing? It is perfect for those eclectic indie weddings. Just look them up and you will find tons of weddings held at this magnificent Temecula wedding venue. It’s always a crowd pleaser. The venue’s grounds and views are seriously unreal.

There is one thing to know about this space, however, before you go researching it online – you won’t find much. Wolf Feather Honey Farm likes to keep a sense of secretiveness and exclusivity with their venue. On their site, you will find they have no photos of the space. This may seem like a downfall and be a turn off for you while venue hunting, but they want couples to make the effort to come to see the space for themselves. The one thing we know for sure is that they have the most rad teepee ceremony site for those edgy couples. They purposely make it hard to find them, which only makes it that much more magical once you do.

4 | Two Sisters Farm
