Ponte Inn Temecula Wedding

There are so many terrific wedding venues in Temecula that can offer the perfect backdrop for any bride and groom, but one of the most popular venues is the iconic Ponte Winery located right off Rancho California Road. Ponte offers a gorgeous hotel, luxurious pool area, and most importantly incredible views of the vineyard. The Temecula wedding venue really is breathtaking, and that is why were thrilled when award-winning destination wedding photographer Richard Clarkie shared with us a recent wedding he captured at Ponte. Below are a handful of images the talented wedding photographer snapped along with some commentary from the bride and groom. Enjoy!

From The Bride & Groom

We love warm weather, good food, great wine, and, most of all, traveling. For our wedding, we wanted our closest family and friends to share those loves with us. The West coast seemed like the perfect place to start our venue search. We stumbled upon Temecula by chance, and found it to be a hidden gem. After exploring wine country, we knew it’s where we were meant to have our wedding. We visited several wineries, each charming in its own way, but Ponte Winery was an easy, obvious choice for us. The grounds and Inn exude a simple elegance. The property offered a picture-perfect backdrop for our outdoor ceremony, while the barrel room provided a unique, intimate space for our reception.

One of the most important aspects of planning our wedding, once we booked Ponte, was finding the right Temecula wedding photographer. We needed someone who could capture both the love between- and surrounding- us on our special day, and the natural beauty of the location. Luckily, we found Clarkie Photography! We also very much enjoyed tasting and selecting Ponte’s wines for our cocktail party and reception.

Our wedding day meant everything to us. For our first anniversary, we traveled from New Jersey back to Ponte so we could relive the experience all over again. We’re counting down the days until our next visit; Temecula will always be our special place!
