Where to begin?! This place is wedding perfection. We had our dream wedding on June 15, 2017 thanks to an incredible team of vendors and the amazing Lisa Occhipinti, our planner and new best friend. From the very beginning Layne gave us our tour and was incredibly helpful and... Read More instrumental in answering our questions. Throughout the planning process even though she has nothing to do with the wedding beyond reserving the date, she was available when minor issues arose and helped make sure everything was in place. There were a lot of vendors included in our package which we'll talk about below. All of them were awesome! Venue: To start with, the actual venue is absolutely gorgeous. We booked about a year and a half in advance to save our date and in that time they made so many improvements. They are constantly upgrading and making everything even more beautiful and perfect than it already is. You think it can't get any better but it does. The lake is so picturesque and kept perfectly manicured year round with gorges flowers. The fountains, fire pits, fire features in the lake, market lights for the reception, ceremony on the lake, and every other detail is just magical. The bathrooms for your guests are even beautiful. The bridal suite for getting ready it gorgeous! Planning and Day of Coordinator: Lisa Occhipinti from Celebrations by Diana. She was hands down the most instrumental and amazing person involved with our day. She totally nailed our vision and made all of our wedding dreams come true. She was so easy to work with and communicate with. She made the process fun and was always so reassuring that we were doing great and that everything was going to be perfect (and she was right, she made sure it was). The day of coordination was included with our package but we upgraded and had her help us more in depth as well. Staff: Their staff the day of our wedding was absolutely A+. They were so gracious and catered to us as the bride and groom making sure we were always taken care of and constantly checking in with us. The bar staff was entertaining and friendly, the security and clean up crew was amazing, the catering team, the DJ, our day of coordinator and everyone else in between. The management was also incredibly helpful when a small issue arose and worked with us to fix it without making us feel stressed at all. DJ: Mike from Good Times Entertainment, he kept the party going and was an all around amazing DJ. We made an entire playlist for our cocktail hour and dinner and he played exactly as we requested. For the dance part we told him to do his thing and he totally rocked it. We had an small intimate wedding yet he kept our guests not he dance floor the entire time. Catering: Temecula Catering, you outdid yourself. We had a plated menu and it was beautiful and delicious. Our guests could not stop talking about how it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Temecula Catering was so easy to work with and really made sure we were extremely happy with our wedding menu prior to our wedding day. Everything was perfect! Cake: BoCakes. Super delicious and exactly beautifully how we envisioned. To wrap it up, we had our dream fairy tale wedding and we could not recommend Lake Oak Meadows venue any more. It was a dream come true.

This venue is amazing. The pictures just don't do it justice and it is an absolutely majestic and beautiful view to take in. I had my wedding in August 2017 and I got so many compliments from my guests on how beautiful and how seamless the wedding went. The staff at Lake Oak is... Read More so accommodating, so helpful, and so kind! I lucked out because the whole summer has been hot and literally the day before our wedding the temperature was in the 90s but on the day of our wedding, it went down 10 degrees and we got the most beautiful day out of it. The coordinator that they give you day of was an immense help to me and made our day amazing. The staff goes out of their way to see if we need anything and I couldn't have asked for a better day than what they gave me. The only bummer thing I have to say is that I unfortunately missed a few things during clean-up after our wedding and when I went to get it the next day they were gone. :/ But that's more my fault, then theirs. I'm trying to find another reason to have a celebration at this venue lol, because the day I left I told my husband we need to come back. So Lake Oaks, expect us back for our 10, 25, and 50 year renewal ceremony!!

The ceremony was so intimate and I guess they just installed a new sound system so it was the cherry on top!

The venue is gorgeous!!! breathtaking! And we're happy we went here. But there were few things that really bothered me just by principal and I don't personally believe is good business. My wedding was amazing, don't get me wrong! Everything was beautiful, the coordinator & staff... Read More were great and the DJ Mike was fantastic! But I was a bit annoyed because we had sent our friends who are getting married to them and they ended up booking their wedding for next Sept. But when they booked they were offered an additional hour ($900 value) for free. We were not offered that so naturally i called and asked for the same offer since we were already adding it to our contract and we were denied. Instead they've us the option for two other, lower priced add ons that I was not interested in at all. I just felt that was very unfair especially given the fact that the options were not add ons that we hadn't asked for. Rather that offering us additional lighting & whatever else it was, I feel like they should've given us the same incentive (extra hour) or waived one of the add ons that we HAD already signed up for. We paid the $900 for our extra hour and got free lighting that we didn't care to have while our friends got their hour for free...Whatever. Another thing that bothered me was that, they wouldn't give us a bottle of wine! I know it seems stupid, but when you're signing a 17k contract, you'd think they would be willing to pass you along a bottle to celebrate. Nope, they made us pay for the bottle at our contact signing. So I thought I'd try again for the actual wedding... for our ceremony celebration we nailed box shut with letters and 2 bottles of wine for our 10 & 20 year, and even though we paid for the open bar, they still charged us for both of the bottles! I mean it's only $50 a bottle and it really is not about the money. For me it's more about the principal of it all. You can't even offer a bottle of wine for the customers paying you nearly 20k AND referred you to make ANOTHER 20k?!? I've been in customer service 10+ years, and this seems pretty elementary to me. A little appreciation goes a long way! Any ways, that's all other than that everything was fantastic, the food was great and everyone keeps telling me that it was the best wedding food and most beautiful place ever!

Only asset is the beautiful venue. Beyond that, customer service falls off a cliff. Business is more into making money than customer service, especially if they can make money from your misfortune. They tell you they work seamlessly with the caterer, but when you complain to... Read More either one, they bifurcate their responsibilities and blame each other. We had teenagers serving the guests, like Ronins without a leader. Working hard, but obviously on minimum wage and inexperienced. I tipped everyone including the kitchen staff twice the maximum amount suggested. Not their fault. In fact, the caterer actually shot back at me with an argumentative tone, as if the bad service was my fault !! The bride's mother didn't get her plate until 10 minutes after all the other 9 people on our table had received theirs. Never has a service oriented company talked to me like that. My credit card must have gone through! The venue's response email to any flexibility starts with "as per your contract". It's all about squeezing as much money out of you on this special occasion when you are vulnerable.

We never once had to worry about any details. Price/Value is unbelievable. I cannot even count the amount of people who raved over our beautiful venue! It truly was a fairy tale! Cons: It does take a while to get ahold of people at times in the venue. Additionally, I had asked since we were short of our guest count if we could receive a couple complimentary heaters... I understand that we were short on our guest count, but due to the amount of business being brought in, I figured it would be a nice courtesy. Granted, if this had occurred, it would have been icing on the cake. We certainly were not expecting , nor entitled to this, but it would have been nice had it occurred.
