Venticello Wedding, Murphys California.

In the heart of the California Gold Country, Brian and Meredith shared vows overlooking the foothills of the Sierra Nevada from the top of a hill.  They were so fun and relaxed and easy to photograph.  I had photographed this charming wedding last year, and wanted to promote this venue as a beautiful location, something like a Tuscany Villa with picturesque landscapes, not to mention the romantic La Villetta room.  This was the first time I had photographed here, but with the amazing property, and a perfect couple, I wanted to post some images from their wedding. ( By the way, I received an email from them sharing they just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl).  Congratulations to Brian and Meredith.

Nestled in a small part of Amador County, California is a rustic intimate place called Volcano, which has many trees, rivers, old buildings, old trucks, rocks, a small park, and main street which used to host a large population of gold miners in the late 1800’s.  Nick and Caitlin married in Volcano last month and we had the privilege of documenting their romantic wedding story in this charming humble town.  Their love for each was evident in the all the photos we took.  What was inspiring was the arch made from manzanita which Nick built with his constructive skills, to add flavor to their small town woodsy styled wedding.  I could photograph rustic mountain weddings all my life and never get bored. Anything with lakes, rivers, trees, mountains, rocks, decaying buildings, lodges, cabins, nature, etc., you name it, I’m all into that stuff.  Nick and Caitlin chose a perfect place to showcase their wedding day and many would be jealous of all the beauty here.  Amador County is the new Napa of California.  Many couples from the city are realizing how beautiful and inexpensive this place is to have their wedding with all the wineries and vineyards in the Shenandoah valley, so it is rapidly growing.  Congratulations to Nick and Caitlin.  Here are some images from their lovely day in Volcano, California.
