Stone Gardens is nestled just south of Temecula Valley Wine Country. The Temecula wineries, with their intimate tasting rooms and personal tours, are one of the top tourist attractions in San Diego and Riverside counties. If you choose to host your event at Stone Gardens, you can plan the wedding theme around the lush vineyards and supple grapes that surround you.

An staple at every winery and wine event is the wine barrel – be it full with aging and delicious wine to share with your guests or empty to be used as decoration or as a table for presents or flowers.

Here are a few other wine barrel ideas:

As a Cake stand

We’re always on the hunt for new & inventive ways to display those must-have items at weddings, and I’m really into the idea of displaying your wedding cake on a wine barrel. This display will photograph incredibly well & look awesome with any kind of cake. The contrast between the barrel and a traditional white wedding cake will really really stun your guests.

With just the examples above, the wine barrels proves itself to be a wonderful addition to any affair. Both utilitarian and uniquely decorative, a wine barrel can be that final item that pulls your entire ceremony together. The barrel does not overwhelm the décor nor does it take away from any of the other decorative accents it just adds a touch of rustic charm – the perfect touch to your wedding at Stone Gardens.
