Everyone knows Pechanga. It's that Casino/Resort you go to for a weekend getaway. Yes, but they also have amazing facilities for weddings that are overlooked and under appreciated, in my opinion. If you are considering the Temecula area for your wedding then I suggest you put Pechanga on your list.
Everything related to the wedding is separate from the casino and hotel. The getting-ready rooms, ceremony site and reception room are all located at Journey, Pechanga's golf resort. And they designed everything in typical Pechanga style... upscale and elegant.
You have incredible golf, the spa, great rooms, the friggin amazing pool, room service, gambling, great restaurants, beautiful views and a competent staff. You're also 10 minutes from Old Town and 20 minutes from the wineries. If you want to give your guests an excuse to stick around for some pre/post wedding entertainment then this is the place!
I really enjoy photographing weddings here!
