I couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding! Our wedding was on 9/17/16 in the Pinnacle and I was a very stressed out bride being that everything was planned in 4 months and there was even a time when I wanted to change my date. Loretta is the best; any questions... Read More I had she was quick to answer and kept me on track with planning. She worked with us and even when we hadn't yet picked a venue; her follow through is what stole us! The winery is so beautiful all around and a great spot because it's right off the main road. The staff was great as well, helpful and kind each time we stopped by. The chef was also amazing! The tasting was top of the line that we didn't make any changes for the reception. Cassie the coordinator was a great addition and I am so happy she was there before and throughout the event. During crunch time Cassie made everything so easy! The day was magical and went so fast I want to do it all over again! The venue, food and wine just made everything so much more perfect! I recommend Falkner to anyone and everyone!! I can wait to be married for 5 years just so I can renew our vows here! It's been a month and our friends and family still talk about how amazing our wedding was! I can't thank Loretta, Cassie and Falkner enough, everything was truly perfect!

Falkner Winery was everything I could want in a wedding venue. From the moment we arrived at the site, we knew instantly that we wanted our wedding to take place there. Almost everything was included in the price; the food, drinks, tables, linens, lighting, and staff. The garden... Read More was the perfect outdoor venue and made us feel like we were in a fairytale. Loretta was a gem of person and made sure all of our questions were answered and that we had everything in place before the big day. The food was fantastic!

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 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.

We cannot say enough great things about Falkner winery. We could have not imagined getting married anywhere else. Loretta and her staff were amazing start to finish.

We got married in May 2016 at Falkner the Pinnacle. We visited several other wineries but this one was a clear winner as soon as we stepped foot on the dramatic walkway to the ceremony location.

Krissy, our included day-of coordinator, was a godsend. She managed tricky family dynamics at our rehearsal, ensured set up was as we'd envisioned and made sure everything ran smoothly (including unbustling my dress at the bottom of the walkway before I hit the stairs). The serving staff were great and made sure my husband and I got to eat. Our guests are still talking about our wedding nearly 6 months later!

Falkner Winery is an amazing place. The owner Loretta and her staff are the best. They have the wedding process down like no other. Their attention to detail made our wedding day completely stress free. We had our wedding in the garden area of the winery and it was beautiful.... Read More The garden area served as the perfect location for both our ceremony and reception. Our wedding was on October 1st and we continue to receive messages from our guest about how beautiful and amazing the wedding was.

Everything that Loretta provides for weddings at her winery exceeds expectations. From the food, which is the best wedding food ever, to the wine, which is top notch, to finally the day of event coordinator she provides named Cassie. Cassie is a gift from God. She made our wedding day so stress free and smooth. She really knows what she is doing and she is very concerned with making your wedding day perfect. The little extra attention to details that she goes above and beyond to do for you is truely special.

My husband and I were married on September 25th, 2016. We chose the Pinnacle side with our reception in the restaurant. We could not have picked a better venue for our special day. Between Loretta Falkner, the awesome owner and the two coordinators we had the honor of working... Read More with, first Krissy Klomenic in the pre-planning process, then Ashley Speakman for the wedding process, everyone was extremely helpful, accommodating, and friendly. Loretta was extremely responsive the entire planning process, which I was always pleasantly surprised by since she has so much on her plate--being the owner and all, NBD! The day was perfect. My goal was to have an elegant and classy wedding that was full of FUN-everyone out on the dance floor. I wanted to enjoy my day that we worked so hard to have. That is exactly what happened and more. All of our guests raved about the food, the stunning views from the winery, the way the night flowed, and how it all came together. Ashley even worked with my parents to surprise me with a huge inside joke (Hashtag the panda from Jimmy Fallon's the Tonight show coming out and dancing). She was amazingly sweet, professional, and worked well with our entire bridal party and families. She helped me feel completely at ease and checked in with us all night to ensure our timeline was running well. All of our guests have said it was one of the best weddings they have attended and share pictures since (many of them changing their FB profile pics to sunset Falkner photos :)) . I cannot wait to see the professional pictures and re-live such an incredible time. Thank you to the entire Falkner staff who helped with our day and to Ashley and Loretta for making this truly the best day of our lives. Our other vendors were also amazing and worked really well with the Falkner staff. My heart has been full ever since our big day. The experience really started my husband Danny and mine's married life together with pure happiness. When something is already right and you have chosen your soulmate, as I have, the wedding should be a true celebration you joining your lives together, surrounded by loved ones. You won't regret going with Falkner.

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!

A magical day

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.

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.

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!
