Temecula Wedding Venue Spotlight : Plateau Edge
There is a shift going on these days. Ballroom weddings are out, they have been for a while. DIY is in and anything outdoor is hot! Temperature wise [depending on the month you choose] but also in terms of trends!! It’s no surprise that VRBO’s have become SUPER popular wedding venues in Temecula. It’s a major perk when you don’t get kicked out of your wedding reception party at 10pm and can stay late, party in the place where you are and crash out. And it’s for all the reasons above and much more that I am spotlighting a lesser known gem nestled back up in the hills on the northwest side of the Temecula Valley.
I want to introduce you to a place called the Plateau Edge. A lesser known but VERY cool wedding venue situated wayyyy up high on a hill about 15 minutes outside of town near the Santa Rosa Plateau. This charming home overlooks the valley and has all the components needed to be the perfect rustic outdoor wedding venue. It is ideal for the bride who dreams of something different than the norm and has been seeking out something with a much more at cozy at home feeling than your typical Temecula wine country wedding venue. The Plateau Edge gives you the feeling of rustic “DIY” with out all the “Y”. And lets face it “yourself” requires a LOT of effort on the big day. Ask anyone who’s done it. Making a DIY wedding go smooth can be a major feat as every little hiccup along the way can turn into a big deal. Not up here. Laura and Alani are amazing! They have a wonderful staff on hand and the ability to be all inclusive so you don’t have to stress over the minor details which will insure that everything goes off without a hitch.
The backdrop for your wedding is BEAUTIFULLY situated upon 5 acres, at the edge of the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve and boasts a massive 6,000 sq. ft. of well thought out indoor space and another 4,000+ sq. feet of wrap around decks, balconies and outdoor patio!! Whoever built this place knew what they were doing as its seriously taking full advantage of the view and keeping the charm of a home. I haven’t even gotten to the BEST part… are you ready? It sleeps up to 30 people!!! I’m not even kidding! Told ya this place is rad! There are 6 bedrooms in total. 3 of the bedrooms are master suites — all designed for maximum comfort and privacy. There is even a hot tub up on the deck for a late night soak! **but good luck fitting your 30 guests in there all at once 😉 **
Are you still reading this? Ok good, just a few more lines of text and then I will release ya to the photos. The wedding I photographed up here had probably around 75 guests. So not too big, but not tiny either. The Plateau Edge easily handled all those guests, provided all of the catering and was able to accommodate a totally vegan cuisine… not only that but the food was AMAZING! Not being vegan myself I wasn’t totally sure what to expect but I can assure you that whoever was rockin that kitchen knows EXACTLY what they were doing!! Oh, the flowers!! Did I mention this already?? Along with catering the full dinner menu, the venue also provided all the floral arrangements you see below!! Beautifully done! The last thing before I release ya to the wedding photos from the day: The ceremony site is beautiful and set up top an adjacent hill and over looks the valley as well and the Barn Pavilion is spacious and nice tall vaulted ceilings, is wrapped in windows which allows a ton of beautiful natural light to pour in during the day… A dream come true for any Temecula wedding photographer ! This will be the place that welcomes your guests for dinner and invites them to joyously dance, drink and party into the night. I seriously could go on and on about this place, you guys! Not only do I want to get back up there for another wedding… I want to LIVE here. lol
Seriously, check out the view from is ceremony site! Such a beautiful spot overlooking the Valley.
Lots of space for guests to spread out and play games during cocktail hour!
