If there’s ever a luxury wedding I have photographed that screams exquisite design and detail, this wedding is it!  From preparation at the Calistoga Ranch into the early hours of the next morning at the Trinchero Family Estate, this wedding was uniquely fashioned to wow, not only the wedding guests, but also the Bride and Groom, Tony and Leigh Anne.  Even the vast property and the buildings constructed were creatively engineered.  I could photograph several weddings there and still make each wedding look unique with all the elements, lighting, and color.  There were several rooms and areas for activities, with a fancy club room with a rockin live band, an over-the-top reception hall that was decorated beyond anything I have ever seen, thanks to Laurel Events, a photo booth area, couches and chairs outside everywhere, inside the winery guests mingling, the bar area outside and inside, the lounge, and don’t forget about Gott’s Roadside late night food outside, serving sea food and burgers.  On top of that (among other items) there was a specially designed chandelier cake hanging from the high ceiling with fresh flowers intertwined throughout it.  This was no doubt a unique wedding.  Tony and Leigh Anne were classic, entertaining their guests, honoring their friends and family, and showing genuine love for all those around them.  The Trinchero family owns quite a few vineyards in Napa as well as in Plymouth, the Shenandoah Valley, which is near my home.  Stop by sometime to drink some wine and check out their winery.  Now on with the show, here are a few images from their high class Napa wedding!

Grand Island Mansion Wedding Venue
Photography by: Charleton Churchill Photography
Walnut Grove, California

I’m attempting to blog a few more weddings from this year of 2012, as I photographed my last weddings of 2012 this past weekend, which were at Standford University and Yosemite. Here are a few images from Logan and Brooke’s wedding at the Grand Island Mansion in Walnut Grove. I can tell you one thing about this couple is they sure know how throw a party and entertain guests! Thank you Logan and Brooke for allowing us to document your special day! This mansion has so much to photograph, love the theater room and the outside reception tent for all the guests.  This location is truly a photographic playground for photographers with many options and rooms to utilize for photos!
