The Firehouse Sacramento Wedding Photographer

The bride is in a shaft of light in the courtyard during her wedding ceremony as she smilies at her groom. The lighting is sometimes tuff, but if you know how to play with the light coming in and control your camera you can end up with some great pictures like this one.

The Firehouse Restaurant is one the top wedding and event venues in the greater Sacramento area. The Firehouse Restaurant is located in historical Old Town Sacramento area of downtown. The building dates back to 1853 and was purchased and remolded back in 1959. With the restaurant opening in 1960 and still in operation today for dining service and special events. It was been voted as one of the most romantic restaurants and best wedding venue in all of Sacramento California. The Firehouse is also named by Zagat as one of “America’s top Restaurants”.

Your ceremony and reception will take place in the back courtyard and the lower half of the restaurant. The ceremonies are held in a red brick walled off courtyard that has gorgeous ivy growing all around it. There are a couple huge trees back there that gives the courtyard ample amounts of shade, which is a plus on those hot summer days. It reminds me of something you would see in New Orleans and not in Sacramento. The walls and trees are high enough to give you lots of seclusion and privacy for the rest of Old Sacramento.

Once your ceremony is over your guest will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the courtyard and inside the Courtyard Grill. During this time you’ll be able to venture around the property and Old Sacramento taking wedding photos. Once your back from your portrait session and ready for your reception the Courtyard and Courtyard Grill will be set up for your dinner service and events for the rest of the night. Receptions can be held indoors and outdoors depending on the size of your event and weather. Your event can also use both the outdoor and indoor areas, which most wedding do. The nice thing about the location of the Firehouse is it’s close proximity to downtown and all the hotels that are near by. This gives your out of town guest lots of lodge options to choose from. The 4,000 square foot courtyard is big enough to hold events of all sizes.
