May 3rd wedding

Reviewed on 5/09/2015

We had our wedding at Falkner on May 3rd, 2015 and have nothing but good memories. For our wedding we choose to do the Yard Garden venue. Our wedding at Falkner went above and beyond our own expectations! Loretta the owner and Krissy K. our coordinator are both incredible people... Read More to work with. They are very sweet and kind ladies who really care about their clients. When we booked our wedding we booked it a year and a half in advance. Through out the whole year and a half Loretta was always quick to answer me directly with any questions I had. When we would go visit the venue the staff was always super nice and always took good care of us. Once our wedding got closer to date we got our wedding coordinator Krissy K. Krissy made sure our day went exactly as we had pictured, granted there was some things that went wrong given the windy weather we had but Krissy took it in her own hands and worked her wedding coordinator magic and made everything just as perfect as our original plan. Days before the wedding she made sure to contact all our vendors and ensuring all of their needs were met as well as giving them instructions for the wedding day. Krissy was our right hand women all night. She made sure as soon as the ceremony was over that my husband and I (and our bridal party) got to enjoy in our cocktail hour by bringing us drinks and food where ever we were. She was always there when we needed her. Before the reception she helped bussle my dress while my mother was entertaining our guests while my husband was in the bathroom with a nose bleed. She made sure when it was dinner time that we were the fist ones to get served and from there she followed through and made sure everyone else was served in a timely manner. She never made us feel rushed. It was so stress free knowing our set up and tear down was 100% taken care of by Krissy and her team. Krissy was a huge part in our big day and we will forever be grateful we had her to help make it all possible and make our wedding something we will always remember. We loved getting to meet and work with the amazing staff Falkner had to offer. Our wedding was beyond perfect.


Beautiful Venue and Excellent Service

We loved everything about our wedding venue! Falkner Winery was the perfect place; not only are the views from atop the hill gorgeous but also the property itself is just amazing! The food was delicious and our guests were really pleased with the flow of the day/night! Thanks... Read More to our wonderful coordinator, Krissy, it was a stress free event for us! Also, having Cocktail hour in the Barrel Room and then moving upstairs to the restaurant area for the reception was a nice treat for our guests. We get compliments for our choice in venue. We found a gem in Falkner; beautiful venue, excellent service, friendly staff and within our budget! We dealt directly with Loretta, one of the owners, and we never had any run-around and it definitely made the entire process stress-free and smooth. My husband picked the most beautiful place and it was like a dream come true to have our wedding at Falkner.

Now for the day of "the biggest g day". As a makeup artist I do tons of weddings I see a lot of stressed out brides and a lot of disorganization, but t this was not the case here. We were greeted again by Casandra who was on top of everything. I have no idea how she did it but everything was on time and went perfect and smoothly. Also Sylvania was there the day of assisting and she not only remembered me from meeting just once almost a year ago but she was also on top of everything and so friendly. My sisters wedding was absolutely perfect and I'm so glad we went with Falkner Winery

From the moment we saw Falkner Winery, we knew this was the place we wanted to celebrate our special day!

Loretta, the owner, worked close with us from the very first day we looked at it until the day we said I do! She was outstanding as was all of the staff there including our coordinator Krissy!

We live in Las Vegas so they made sure to help us out as much as they could with recommending vendors and setting up our tastings around the time we would be in town.

We had our wedding last month at Falkner Winery and we absolutely loved it! Our coordinator (who came with the venue) was Cassie, and she was so on top of everything that we were perfectly on schedule the day of. We used the yard/garden area instead of the Pinnacle, and it was... Read More so beautiful. I peeked during cocktail hour and a bunch of our guests were taking selfies in front of the gorgeous sunset. The food was great (highly recommend the vegetarian lasagna, and I'm not even a vegetarian), the wine was great, the price was right, and everything was gorgeous. The only downside to the outdoor space is that it gets windy in the evening. The breeze is nice and keeps everyone cool in the summer heat (the fact that the area is well shaded is great too), but keep the wind in mind as far as your plans for hair, veil, etc, especially if you're doing a first look. It dies down around 7pm or so. The venue recently made some upgrades, adding market lights instead of regular lights, and changing to a larger wood altar arch instead of the old metal one, both of which are huge improvements. Be sure to look at more recent photos/videos when you're researching. Overall we LOVED this venue. Wouldn't change a thing!

The reception hit the exact tones and feel we were hoping for, classy and elegant while also feeling relaxed and comfortable. We also had a pre-ceremony gathering in the barrel room, which is a great space and was an awesome start to the afternoon.

A magical day

Reviewed on 10/28/2015

I think that most brides feel like their wedding day is "magical," but in this case it truly was. It was by chance that I happened to come across Falkner Winery in my search of available venues. Because my husband was going on deployment, I needed to plan quickly and I was under... Read More a tight budget. Loretta Falkner worked with us based on our needs to give us an extraordinary offer. We married the same day as an another couple, but on the wedding day we wouldn't have known we weren't the only ones there - and neither did our guests. We were extremely fortunate to work with Krissy K, who was there to answer every nagging question, and had a copy of everything I requested. She made something as complicated as planning a wedding into something very relaxing. She also assisted me on the day of the wedding as the wedding coordinator, and I just don't know how she was able to juggle so many moving parts and to make things come out beautifully - even my Pinterest-inspired, last-minute "whims." She was willing to work with any idea I had, and offered her past experience to help me come up with a day that no one - myself and my guests included - will ever forget.


Dream Wedding at Falkner Winery

Reviewed on 10/28/2015

I don't know where to begin, all I can say is AMAZING! We looked at a few other venues, and then read the fabulous online reviews about Falkner. We decided to drive out and see what they had to offer. We made an appointment and met with Krissy, a Falkner event coordinator.... Read More We toured the grounds, and my daughter, Madison, and her future husband knew then and there, this was the place. There are two separate areas for weddings and receptions, however we chose to rent out the entire winery for their wedding. We then were contacted by Loretta Falkner, the winery owner. She was a pleasure to work with from day one. She is realistic and simply amazing. Just as we had read online, "Even though they do a ton of weddings, they truly make you feel like yours is the only one. That your wedding is special and unique." Absolutely true, they really do! LOVED Krissy from the moment we met her. Knows her job inside and out, super calm, and has a "sure we can do that" attitude. Krissy welcomed working with our coordinators with open arms, working as a team, not territorial. How refreshing! She could have handled it all by herself, but we had a lot going on with two huge families and 200 guests. My future son-in law, Steven, an electrical engineer did not love their lighting set-up, so he asked if he could change it for their wedding. Krissy asked Loretta, and Loretta said, "Sure, let's give it a try if we can." Steven was connected with Ken, the Falkner "go to" man who came into work on his day off, on the hottest day of the year(seriously)and they redid all the lighting in the garden area. So when you see the fantastic lighting, think of Steven and Ken. I'm mentioning this as an example of how open and flexible they are at Falkner. The food was amazing, and I overheard people mentioning how delicious everything tasted. We chose to do the buffet set-up because we personally feel people mingle more with a buffet. Even the food tasting a few weeks prior to the wedding was great fun. Another wonderful thing was their list of vendors. Everyone we contacted was just great. I called one limo company and she was booked, but went out of her way to connect us with someone else who could accommodate us. The price was very reasonable. Almost everything needed for a wedding is included, including all beer, wine, sodas, food, linens, and chairs. We looked at other venues that would have charged separately for everything, and I mean everything, and would not have come close to creating this beautiful wedding. We upgraded to fruitwood chairs, brought in some farm tables from a different rental place, and all of this was happily accepted. We're restaurant owners, so we have high expectations when it comes to customer service. Without any hesitation we can say, "Falkner will make your wedding, your dream day." Cheers to Loretta, Krissy, Ken, and the entire Falkner Staff!

Our wedding was on October 2, 2015 in the garden area at Falkner. Honestly, it was something out of a dream. From the minute we went for a consultation with Loretta Falkner (owner) we knew this would be our venue. It is absolutely breathtaking!! The winery is up on a hill so you... Read More have views of the vineyards and mountains. We chose October because the sunsets in Temecula are OUT OF CONTROL! So gorgeous!! Other than the beauty of the venue, I must really emphasize the A+ customer service we received all throughout the year from Loretta, Krissy, the chef and the entire bar/restaurant staff at Falkner. I have ZERO complaints... Loretta was always open to talking about any concerns we had and always made time for us whether it be via email or on the phone or meeting in person. My day-of coordinator, Krissy, was so awesome! Her personality is so pleasant and calming, she really put me at ease and definitely knows her stuff when it comes to logistics! Lastly, but certainly not least, THE BAR & RESTAURANT STAFF was impeccable. Our food was hot and was brought out very quickly. My husband and I were taken care of by the SWEETEST captain of the team... I feel terrible that I can't remember her name. She made sure we didn't get too busy to forget to eat, she always refilled our glasses, and was constantly asking if we needed anything else. SHE WAS THE BEST! Highlights and overall "WOW" factors of our wedding (from what our guests told us): - the food!! We served the sirloin steak w vodka demi glaze, the pesto chicken, and mushroom ravioli. EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS. Our guests RAVED about the steak-- that it was the best steak they've ever had at a wedding. -the venue! views, views, views!! The venetian lights and sunset make for a romantic, lovely backdrop. - the open wine&beer bar! Our guests absolutely loved the CAB! My personal favorite was the sauvignon blanc. (I couldn't drink red for fear of spilling on my dress). I honestly cannot say enough about this magical place. Although it is important to find a beautiful venue, it is just as important to find great people to collaborate with in order for your dream vision to come alive. I could not have chosen a better group of people to work with than those at Falkner and my other vendors. DREAM TEAM FOR SURE!! Truly, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! Gabriella B

We wanted something more rustic with beautiful views. The moment we got to Falkner I knew this was the one. We met with Krissy to give us the tour and we LOVED her. She luckily was our coordinator for the day. Let me just say she is like a fairy Godmother on that day. Had no one to help me in my dresss-Krissy was there, Headache because it was so hot and as most brides didn't eat, Krissy got me some Advil, my hair extensions were so matted from the wind and hot day, Krissy took them out for me, bride who had way too many details/decor, Krissy and her assistant made sure it was all placed. KRISSY WAS AMAZING!! So happy I had her. Everyone commented on how beautiful and rustic the place was. A few people commented on how they liked the food as well. The only drawback was having to end the party at 10:30. I do wish the package would last longer than 5 hrs. Hard to cram everything in that time. Although if you don't want more time you just need to pay for it. Which isn't ever cheap at any venue. All in all if you're a bride on a budget and you want something outdoors with beautiful views Falkner is the place.
