Avio Vineyard Wedding with Casey and Jessica Vinciguerra
National Hotel Wedding Photography
I’m not sure how to label Casey and Jessica’s Amador County wedding, but when you mix rustic glam country western Cinderella prince charming high class emotional dramatic romantic all together, what would you call it? If you’re thinking Taylor Swift, that would be a good guess, but incorrect. Whatever you may call it, it was more than your typical wedding event with so many hands and hearts to thank from the community. Stan Lucowicz, owner of the fully restored Historical National Hotel (which isn’t open quite yet), opened the doors for the first time to the wedding party and family for preparation, celebration, and lodging. The hotel is just spectacular inside with every room being unique! Some rooms even have Jacuzzis and fireplaces, and will no doubt be a tourist attraction for many travelers (and even locals). Check out some of the images below.
After preparation, Jessica was escorted in an immaculate Rolls Royce (yes, I even wiped my finger prints off the door after closing) over to the Avio Vineyard where the wedding and reception was to be held. Avio’s owners, Stefano and Lisa, have built a beautiful property for weddings, and with all the decorations and flowers, this place was something like out of a movie. I remember Jessica’s father, Dave, asking me what I thought of the wedding setup? I said, “Over the top!” He echoed my reply emphatically. But then I responded, “However, this is every girls perfect wedding dream come true.”
Casey and Jessica had a beautiful wedding and we were glad to have captured the moments!
