I got married to my wife Tiffany here in May 2017 and it was top notch across the board. The winery is incredible and their wines will not disappoint.

Our ceremony was outdoors at the pond behind the Vineyard Inn (connected to the winery) with reception in the barrel room and both were beautiful and unique.

If you're looking to get married in SoCal, Ponte Winery should be at the top of your list!

We had a bridesmaid dress dilemma, and the first person on the scene was Lauren, sewing kit in hand. She did EVERYTHING to make sure my day was amazing. And oh my goodness, it was. The food, the service, and the ambiance was magical! Thank you Ponte was such a beautiful day!

My new husband, Daniel, and I had our wedding in the Barrel Room back In May. Although the venue was STUNNING and the food is AMAZING, what could have been a speed bump, turned into a blessing in disguise. About 4-5 months before our wedding, our (old) coordinator informed us... Read More that she was leaving Ponte and we would be getting a new coordinator, Lauren Gonzales. After the hours we spent with our prior coordinator and COUNTLESS emails, this stressed me out beyond belief. I wanted to make sure the new coordinator wouldn't get lost in the details. As i mentioned, this turned out to be a blessing because Lauren was just spectacular. Her personality and energy vibed with me more than the previous girl and I felt immediately comfortable with Lauren taking over. She not only made sure she was up to speed on everything but I think she made it better. On the day of, I forgot so many little details and she assured me that she had it control and from what I could see and what my sister and mom passed onto me, she did a fantastic job. The only complaint I have is that after the fact, I was made aware that I did not get a bridal suite to get ready in. I just had a plain guest room and this was disappointing as it made it kind of hard to get ready. Overall, Lauren made it great and I appreciate her and the whole staff that made our wedding a day to never forget. Thank you Lauren!! xoxo

I got married at Ponte Winery ( Vineyard Pavilion side) February 2017. My venue coordinator was Lindsey Dole: Lindsey was a top notch coordinator. She had impeccable attention to detail. Her response times were immediate. She was always willing to help, respond and to give... Read More advice. Lindsey was organized and didn't miss a beat with details. The wedding was truly flawless, and it would have been impossible without someone like Lindsey orchestrating everything. Words can't truly express how perfect Lindsey was for me. I must have emailed her 10,000 times over the year, and she always responded with a positive attitude. The Food: I know Ponte food is delicious because I go often. So it is no surprise I haven't stopped hearing about how delicious everyone thought the food was. They made easy accommodations for vegetarians and allergies, and didn't make a big deal of it. They were happy to accommodate substitutions and all my requests. The food tasting and head chef were also amazing. What an exceptional team. Venue: The Ponte Venue in general is so tranquil , classy and peaceful. It is a mature environment that is beautiful at every turn. You have the beauty of wine country, and the chic class of a gorgeous property and ball room. Vendors: Pontes suggestions for Vendors such as DJ Pros, & Ashley Video Productions was such a good decision. DJ pros made the reception perfect and Ashley Video had a video preview made in a matter of days. Privacy: Lindsey and the team made my wedding very private. They do a good job putting up blocks so that you do not have anyone not invited walking through your tranquil space. There were no interruptions or distractions. It was truly perfect. Tear down: The crew did an exceptional job tearing down and repacking all my items. They accommodated me bringing my items early and packed it up just as neatly as received. They delivered all the items exactly where I said I wanted everything and not one item was lost or broken.

Ponte Winery was the best decision we made throughout our entire wedding planning process. We wanted an outdoor wedding, but we figured it would take a long time of searching to find the perfect venue. On a whim we decided to spend the day in Temecula visiting a few wineries and... Read More the second I stepped foot on the Ponte property I knew it was the one. There are no words to describe how pristine, perfect, and gorgeous the grounds are kept - you have to see it for yourself. It was such an easy decision! We signed the paperwork a year and a half in advance of our June 2016 wedding and Marissa Mendoza was our initial wedding coordinator. As a type A, picky, detail-oriented bride, I emailed Marissa countless times during the year. I can't even tell you how many times because it would be embarrassing! She answered every email promptly, professionally, and was extremely helpful in providing suggestions. A couple months before our wedding, Marissa went on maternity leave and Lindsey Dole took over our wedding. The transition was effortless and Lindsey was just as responsive and awesome! We didn't have an external wedding planner, but with Marissa and Lindsey it definitely felt like we did! One of the reasons we chose Ponte is because it can stand on its own with no extra decor and still be breathtaking. I am no DIY Pinterest bride, but with some decor we picked out ourselves and beautiful flowers by our florist, the venue was absolutely perfect. All of our guests were raving about how beautiful our wedding was! Everyone kept saying how "Pinterest-worthy" it was and I attribute 100% of that to Ponte itself. Our wedding itself was perfect. We originally had our family members ready to set up our decor, but the Ponte staff completely took over and set everything up better than I could have even imagined! Our family kept raving about how helpful and professional the Ponte staff were. Little things like giving the bridal cottages a free fruit tray to snack on and champagne to drink, leaving hor d'oeuvres and champagne in the cottage right after the ceremony so my husband and I could have a special moment alone, cleaning up after the reception and refusing to let my family lift a finger...they were just unbelievably thoughtful and genuinely seemed like they wanted to make sure everything went perfectly. If you're looking for a wedding venue, do yourself a favor and visit Ponte! It was worth every single penny. We visited 6-7 other wineries in the area and none of them even came close to the perfection that is Ponte. (Just as a note, we got married on the Vineyard + Vineyard Pavilion side. I have a coworker who got married on the Ponte Inn side a year ago and he loved his experience just as much as I did. So you can't go wrong!)

The venue itself is absolutely stunning and I cannot say enough about the VALUE of... Read More booking at Ponte. The food was unbelievable- hands down the best wedding food I have ever tasted! In fact, the wedding food was SO GOOD, our guests were too busy eating to interrupt us for pictures and congratulations (everyone always says you don't have time to eat at your wedding but that was simply not the case). In addition to how the food tasted, the portion sizes were quite generous, so between all of the courses, our guests definitely did not go home hungry. If the beautiful venue, exceptional food, and amazing wine aren't enough to convince you to book your wedding at Ponte, then let me tell you what truly sets this place apart from the rest; and that is the staff. My husband and I were impressed from the second we met the wedding coordination staff; they were friendly, bubbly, knowledgeable, and genuinely loved their jobs. They were so easy to work with, responded to emails and phone calls quickly, and kept in constant contact with us. Both Lindsey and Marissa were amazing wedding coordinators and made planning so smoothly. Everyone, and I literally mean EVERYONE- from our bridal hostess, banquet captain, and servers were phenomenal. They made the day so enjoyable and were so wonderful to work with- everyone went out of their way to make you feel special! From the moment we stepped onto the grounds until the last seconds we checked out of Ponte Inn the morning after our wedding, we truly felt like we were treated like family. We look forward to celebrating at Ponte for the many years to come!
