A Private Estate Wedding in Grass Valley is among one of our favorites to photograph. Getting ready in the family home while it is being designed and dressed to look its best by one of the best – Brenda Hodges of A Curated Story. And when paired with a beautiful bride, gorgeous gown, adorable bridesmaids, and family that has flown in from as far as Norway, the photographs are sure to be stunning and filled with emotion. The strong colors and lush landscape of the Brides Family Home combined with the attention to detail, make this wedding exquisite. With many personally hand-crafted details made by her Father, this Grass Valley Private Estate Wedding is one to remember.
Family heirlooms from the Gold Rush were exchanged just before this Bay Area Bride and Groom said their vows in a grove of trees. The Groom finished getting ready in the Guest Quarters with the men closest to him. The men were surrounded by pieces of History Laura’s Father has collected over time. The gents played checkers with their Spartan Metals and sipped choice Bourbon while playing a game of pool. Next, they cross the lawn and over the bridge, leading to the grove where he would marry Laura. The bride finished getting ready in the Main House before entering her Father’s Classic Studebaker Truck. The bridal party heads down the driveway, past the dock and into the grove of trees. The bride on her Father’s arm.
Guests dined on an unforgettable meal with table service by Farm to Table Catering . Tables are adorned with floral centerpiece boxes crafted by the Bride’s Father and meticulously arranged by the talented Brenda Hodges of A Curated Story. Jewel Tones, Fall Fruits of Pomegranates, Persimmons, Pears, and Figs are artfully arranged along the Head Table accented with Depression Glass, Ratan Chargers, and Gold Silverware. The evening concluded with dancing under the stars and string lights on a beautiful Autumn Evening.
