“My daughter’s wedding was held here on July 25  & I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.  From the first day meeting with Mike & Michele until the  day after the wedding, they made the process go so smoothly, thinking of every little thing that you might miss & being ready to take care of it in a flash. They do so many sweet thoughtful things to ensure everyone is comfortable & make you feel like family. These are truly wonderful people! The property is just gorgeous & well kept including a charming koi pond.  This place should be featured in “Better Homes & Gardens”.  If I could give it 10 stars I would! I can’t say enough about these people & this venue. Thank you so much for everything  Mike & Michele!! You are definitely Kern County’s Best Kept Secret!” – Anne D from Yelp Business

 “My husband Daniel and I had our wedding here on June 20th. Mike and Michele are amazing, as well as their property, and we could not have asked for a better place for our wedding!  I fell in love with the place and when I initially called, they were booked, but a day opened up and we took it!  Mike and Michele were so accommodating throughout the entire process and made us feel so comfortable! Michele suggested amazing vendors to us and has an amazing collection of items you can rent for your wedding to keep decor costs down. The venue itself is breathtaking and so beautiful and endless photo opportunities. We chose to get married in the vineyard, but got some awesome shots in front of the barn facade. Our guests loved the property and so many asked us how we found it. If you are considering Dorner Family Vineyard, check it out and you will be sold!!!:)” – Stacey J from Yelp Business

“The Dorners what can I say about them other than they are such wonderful people. Our experience with them was just great. My son’s wedding was not only relaxing, it was absolutely beautiful. We could not have found a better place in all of Tehachapi. Thanks so much for all you did for us. It’s was a fantastic day and one that we cherish always.” – Trina B from Yelp Business

“Every couple should get married here!! Mike and Michele are the most amazing people. So kind and hardworking! They do so much to make this venue spectacular. Dorners was everything I had imagined and more. Right when I got engaged, I knew the setting that I wanted to get married in. When I saw Dorners, that was it! I didn’t even look anywhere else. Michele responds within hours and is very accommodating the weekend of your wedding. We were there Friday-Sunday setting up, wedding and cleaning up. I would do it all over again! I had nothing but great compliments from my guests. It was the perfect day! :)” – Lacy from Wedding Wire

 “A beautiful venue. A beautiful place. So many wonderful photo opportunities! If the beauty and details of this exciting, rustic, charming and versatile venue were not enough, the owners, Mike and Michele, were simply amazing. They were so accommodating and understanding when our original venue defaulted; they opened up their hearts and their wonderful vineyard just barely a week before my friend’s wedding day. They worked with us, were available anytime we had questions, helped us out when rain threatened, made so many last minute arrangements, and took care of all of the details that we would normally have a year to plan. As an event planner, I have never had such a potentially disastrous situation turn into such a lovely, charming and fun event! I look forward to working with the Dorners again and again!”  – Susan Quinland-Stringer from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

“I was in the bridal party for a wedding here. The location is absolutely gorgeous, plus they had some lovely, rustic decorations available to use. The couple barely spent anything on decorating, because so much was included in the cost of the venue and the gardens were beautiful on their own. The owners helped solve literally every problem we had: flowers delivered the previous day were stored in an awesome walk-in refrigerator, a stained bridesmaid’s dress was oxycleaned, forgotten decorations for the getaway car were supplemented with their own streamers. I could not recommend this place highly enough.” – User4196707 from Wedding Wire

 “I had my wedding and reception here on August 8th. Mike and Michele’s venue is breath takingly gorgeous. There isn’t a place on the property that isn’t a great photo opportunity, and my guests couldn’t stop saying how perfect it was. From the beginning (more than a year before) until the day of the wedding the owners were so helpful that we had no stress. Their enthusiasm for what they do is evident from the big things they do like setting up the tables and chairs exactly how you would like them down to the small details like making sure there are toiletries and comfort items for their brides.  Our day will always be memorable to us and our guests thanks to Mike and Michele’s hospitality and their beautiful venue, I can’t thank them enough and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great venue.”  – Rae Marie Satton from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

Had our wedding there 8/1. Mike and Michelle were amazing!! They helped make it the best day ever!!” – Victoria Oblonsky from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

The most amazing wedding venue in town with the most helpful and amazing hosts . Thank you Mike and Michelle for making the day amazing.”  – Carl Mark Satton II from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

“My husband and I had our wedding here, this summer.  We were blown away by the over all experience. It was exactly what we were looking for, in terms of a romantic, elegant, but rustic outdoor wedding. Mike and Michele were nothing but helpful in the run up, and during the course of the weekend- we couldn’t praise them enough!!! As a wedding venue we couldn’t fault a thing. The views were stunning, and property was in tip top shape. We used the barn option for our ceremony, and it was set up beautifully. They put all of their energy into the meticulous details, so that everything is perfect for your big day!!! The hay bails were draped with white muslin for our guests comfort, and the grounds were well manicured. For our wedding party, we had access to the bridal suite the entire weekend, including Friday to set up and keep our things safe. My girls and I got ready in the morning right on the property!!! We were able to spend precious time together while making memories with no stress of arrival, or worries of being rushed. The reception went off without a hitch! While we had a coordinator, Mike and Michelle were in the background always prepared and keeping an eye out, to make sure it was going smoothly. The stage area is a perfect spot for your intimate family and wedding party, yet allows all of your guests to watch and feel like they are a part of everything going on. Dorner Family Vineyard played a huge part in the success of our BIG DAY and the amount of our guests who are still talking about your venue is testament to that! Thank you so much for the hospitality, and love! I have seen many weddings here as well, and your genuine love for the couples is rare! Tehachapi is lucky to have this beautiful Vineyard as an option! Highly recommended!!” – Kimberly P from Yelp Business

 “Wow! This place has it all! Was impressed by every aspect of the property. Beautiful grounds with multiple area for the wedding ceremony. Nice, clean restrooms. Incredible dance floor with twinkle lights galore! This place is awesome!” – Taryn Wilson from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

“My husband and I had our wedding here May 23. To say that Mike and Michele are absolute angels is to say the least. They are so caring and giving and their venue is breathtaking. They have a beautiful vineyard with a beautiful oak tree you can get married under and makes for beautiful pictures! They also have this awesome barn facade that looks amazing as a background for a ceremony or pictures. The best part I feel is their garden and patio area. The garden is lush and the flowers are nicely kept. Honestly the venue is so beautiful on its own you hardly need any decorations. But if you choose Michele has so many beautiful items up for rent to keep costs down. Michele and Mike are by far the nicest people around and they are SO easy going and the best part is they work with you! I highly recommend this venue for any event and I think very highly of the Dorners for being so kind and caring and really just treating us like family. Do yourself a favor and take a tour of the venue, I promise you will fall in love with it just like we did.” – Brenda Gonzales from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

“You will not be disappointed if you choose this venue. A beautiful facility with many options to fit any bride and groom’s style.

“Michele and Mike are so sweet and easy to work with. They are very understanding and patient. My husband and I absolutely enjoyed working with them and our wedding came out exactly as planned. We wanted to say thank you a million times over for everything. Your property is gorgeous and nothing compares to your hospitality.” – Stephanie Adams from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

“Just had my wedding there on June 22nd. It was perfect, the owners were so accommodating and helped so much to make sure we had everything we needed. They helped in more ways than I could ever imagine to make sure our special day was absolutely perfect!! I am forever thankful to them for helping us avoid potential crisis, they went out of their way to make sure everything was done, ready, stain free, and audio perfect!!!” –Hallie Watkins from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

“Sherri and I just got back from our honeymoon – the culmination of a magical, fairytale wedding – an unforgettably wonderful experience which began over a year ago when we first stepped onto the property of Mike & Michelle Dorner! From the very first meeting to the end of a perfect wedding, Mike & Michelle have been absolutely wonderful to work with, very accommodating, offered superb advice and suggestions, and were very understanding when changes needed to be made! Mike & Michelle have transformed their beautiful home and grounds into the premier wedding venue in Tehachapi! Thank you, Mike and Michelle for playing such an integral part in making our wedding day the Best Day Ever!!!” Craig & Sherri Timm from Dorner Family Vineyard Facebook

“I had the opportunity to be part of a wedding held at Dorner Family Vineyards and I couldn’t have been more impressed. The setting is absolutely breathtaking.
