Portola Ranch-Venue Highlight-Temecula-Wedding-Planner

Hello and welcome back! I am continuing my blog series on wedding venues. This month I want to introduce you to Portola Ranch.

Portola Ranch is a beautiful, privately owned Spanish style Hacienda. It is located just outside wine country in Temecula (Hemet) and it is beautiful.  The owners, Ron & Karen, bought the property in 2010. They designed the house themselves in the style of a Spanish Hacienda and also designed the beautiful gardens.



Portola Ranch is a working ranch, but you would never know it when walking around the property. The rose garden is Karen’s baby and she takes care of the flowers and garden herself. Ron can constantly be found working to improve the property and the grounds. He is extremely handy and has built many of the details you will find as you tour the property.

Visitors to Portola Ranch would comment at how beautiful it is and that they should share it with others. So, in 2018 they opened Portola Ranch as one of Temecula’s newest Wedding Venues!

When you enter the property, you can’t help but notice the beautiful garden with the large fountain surrounded by colorful roses. Then as you walk along the corridors of the Spanish walkways, you see beautiful tiles, high wooden beams and beautiful arches all along the walk ways.

The patio area is a perfect location to host cocktail hour and take some amazing photos. I was there during the evening hours and was blown away at the sunset! The sky was a wonderful orange glow that set behind the hills that surround the venue. I could not help but imagine how amazing it would be to take photos with that sunset as your backdrop!




You can also take photos with the various ranch animals they have on property; horses, alpaca’s and goats. The animals love being part of the wedding photos and being the center of attention.




Portola Ranch is currently offering some fantastic introductory pricing to couples getting married.  What I LOVE about this venue is how accommodating the owners are and how they treat you like Family.

So, if you are looking for a unique and Budget Friendly venue to host your wedding, that your guest will love, then I highly recommend Portola Ranch.
