Alex and Michael decided to have their wedding at The Orchard by Wedgewood Weddings in Menifee California which is one of my favorite venues. A fairytale escape awaits you. This outdoor venue is ideally suited for weddings of all sizes. Your guests will enjoy a tranquil lake, it’s rustic charm, and back-to-nature vibes. This venue also features a lily pond, luxurious pavilion, and an open-air kitchen. Coupled with a sparkling fountain and bistro lights, the bandstand creates the perfect wedding backdrop. This award winning wedding venue is the perfect place for your Menifee California wedding.
Upon facetiming Alex during our consult call I knew I would love working with her. She is an absolute sweetheart. Through the planning process and photographing their wedding day – Alex and I have since become friends.
I first met Michael and Alex when doing their engagement photos which ended up being a family session with their little girl who is absolutely adorable. The love shared between Alex and Michael is so sweet. I knew their wedding was going to be a dream.
From their first look to the end of the wedding day you can see the love they both have radiating off one another.
The Orchard by Wedgewood Weddings offers couples a number of all-inclusive wedding packages to further enhance their special celebration. They have four different types of packages to choose from. One such package includes a ‘Build-Your-Own” option. I think this is a great option for couples who really want to tailor their day to reflect their personalities and vision.
Packages can include wedding planning and coordination assistance, DJ and MC services, centerpieces, invitations and accessories, a variety of food and so much more.
Additionally, all of the Orchard’s packages include event planning. Including: timeline creation, rehearsal walk-through, first-look coordination, ceremony, reception, final send-off, arrangement of in-house bar and catering services.
The Orchard by Wedgewood Weddings is easily reachable from Riverside and San Diego Counties. Destination couples love this unique venue as well as couples from Menifee, Murrieta, Temecula, Perris, Riverside, Moreno Valley, Fallbrook, Pala, Oceanside, Wildomar, Winchester, and other nearby cities.
The Orchard has onsite ‘getting-ready’ rooms located mere steps away from the primary event space. I love that this venue has onsite getting ready spaces, making it very convenient for photography purposes. Having to drive to multiple locations on your wedding day can be confusing for your vendors and bridal party so having the ‘getting-ready’ space at the venue is incredibly valuable.
There is a full-service bar situated on the perimeter of the garden. This offers optimal convenience for your guests during your wedding reception.
Additionally, this venue offers what they call ‘Bliss Benefits’ this gives couples discounts on: attire, transportation, hotels, and more.
The Orchard by Wedgewood is such a magnificent venue. I absolutely adore the pond on the property. It makes for a magical backdrop for portraits. It even makes its own rainbow which I thought added to the fairytale-like ambience.
The gazebo is a great addition to this venue as well. When photographing it from the side of the pond and getting an overall view of the venue it looks stunning. Additionally, I love the tunnel that lights-up, it is placed right before entering the venue. Which makes for such a unique experience for guests. At night the photos of this are incredible.
Overall, this venue has some really beautiful features to it and all of these ‘photo-worthy’ spots are centrally located. Making it convenient to walk around and get a chance to photograph the bride and groom at each of them.
If you are looking to get married in Menifee California I highly recommend taking a tour of The Orchard. This venue has some incredible features and would make a great location for a variety of couples. There is something for everyone to enjoy. The all-inclusive benefits that this venue offers is unmatched, so take advantage of the convenience that this venue offers.
