Volcano, California St. George Hotel wedding, Nick and Caitlin

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.

Villa Privata wedding photography, Amador County Event Center

Here are some images from Amador County’s premiere special event location I photographed for publication.  This Tuscan-styled villa is absolutely unique and great for any couple (and for that matter, any photographer).  I spent a little over an hour with my Sacramento wedding couple Jon and Sarah for this photo shoot, and they were gracious to come out for a few photos.  This venue is charming with all kinds of shrubbery, stained colored walls, and with a rustic intimate sense.   Even a winter wedding would do well here.  If you’re looking to book your wedding in Amador County, here is another great venue for your wedding needs.  If you have any questions, please contact Marie Cicogni at their website Villaprivata.com
