I just attended a wedding here and I was blown away!!! It's so beautiful and the fire in the lake was a great touch! We had a blast and felt like it was one of the better weddings we've ever attended.

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.

This venue is STUNNING. All of the guests were raving about the scenery and upkeep of the venue. The fire pits were charming, and the ceremony site was gorgeous. My only comment about the site - the dance floor is awkwardly positioned, though I understand that it was built that... Read More way for noise regulations in the area. The Lake Oak Meadows staff were kind, though my Venue Coordinator changed three different times during wedding planning.

My husband and I got married at Lake Oak in March, and oh my gosh, we were blown away in amazement! From the day we booked our venue, to the day of our wedding, we really felt like royalty. Pros: Hayley Radford was AMAZING. I am personally a wedding coordinator, and... Read More cannot even begin to speak highly enough about Hayley. She made me feel 100% at ease the entire time. Let me tell you, working in the industry, I am very picky and know what to expect and am constantly in control over every detail over others weddings. Hayley had us at ease the entire time! 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.

When looking for the perfect wedding location, the photos online of this site were amazing that I saw online. Seeing it in person made us book this place instantly. The staff is extremely friendly, the winery is gorgeous with many beautiful locations to take priceless photos,... Read More and the wine is delicious! All of our guests said they believed our wedding was the most beautiful they had seen and the grounds are large enough where guests can choose to sit in the courtyard, stroll the grounds, sit by a fire pit, or dance on the dance floor! No regrets whatsoever in choosing this location! It was affordable, with monthly installments, and staff were available always with any questions we had, up until the day before the wedding! The only con I would say is that drinks ended at 9:30 (Temecula law) and the music was turned down earlier than we would have liked (also Temecula law). Even with these cons, still wouldn't have chosen any other location elsewhere! You won't be disappointed in the least bit. Definitely recommend!!!!!

The food was delicious and everyone we spoke with at the company was so friendly, helpful, and great to work with. We were very happy with them. The DJ (also provided for you) is Mike from Good Times Entertainment. He was also really great to work with. Definitely knows what he's doing and kept our guests dancing throughout the night. However, the employees at LOM are difficult to get in contact with. They aren't great about returning phone calls or emails. All of the women were very friendly and accommodating when I drove the 45 minutes to visit them at the office (the only guaranteed way to get your questions answered). Luckily, our wedding was primarily DIY, low-key, and just very casual. Having said that, I didn't have TOO many questions or issues that made the delayed/lack of response from the venue unbearable. If you are planning on having a large, very detailed wedding where you will need a lot of contact with the venue working out details, etc., I could see this place just driving you crazy. We had a few hiccups with the venue throughout our wedding planning but the few headaches were definitely worth it in the end. Our day was perfect...I wouldn't have changed a thing.

Thrutfully, when I first booked this place, I was so excited. The Place is Gorgeous! However, in the 2 years I was engaged, they went through so many staff changes. Everytime I called to make a payment or for an update, I was speaking to someone new. I booked this venue almost... Read More 2 years in advance.. then, my wedding date got postponed and I gave them almost 1 year in a half notice asking to have my date changed and they still charged me a cacellation fee, which I thought was absolutely ridiculous! I was doing ceremony only, so it wasnt like they already had that date booked or they missed out on anything. I understand I was a ceremony only, but it seemed they didnt care about my event as much as the Evening wedding right after me. I was a client too and paid in full! The Day of was terrible. I was told a golf cart would pick me and my father and drive us up the hill, as my guests were arriving, however, that didnt happen. They were to busy with the other wedding, which wasnt set to start until 5:00, (mine was at 2:00)So needless to say I had to walk all the way up the hill and basically greet my guests as they were arriving.. Not at all how I wanted this to go! Wasnt very happy with their customer service. I guess that's what I get for booking ceremony only. Summation: Place is Gorgeous!Customer Service: TERRIBLE!
