Sunset pictures at a Forest House Lodge wedding of a newly married couple holding hands next to a large pine tree with the warm glow of the setting sun behind them. Fun fact about this photo is that it was taken right next to the main road in town. We were driving back into town from the ceremony site and saw that we had minutes with this amazing light before it was gone. So we pulled the cars off the road and found these trees as a backdrop and fired away until it was gone, which was just minutes.
The Forest House Lodge is located up in the Sierra foothills of Northern California in the small quaint town of Foresthill California. The lodge is located right off of the main street and is a quick drive up the hill from Sacramento and the surround foothill communities. The lodge is an all inclusive venue, which means that you’ll be the only one getting married their that day. Unlike other wedding venues that can run two to four events in one day, which is crazy. This insures that your guests and you will receive the full attention of the staff and that your wedding day will be a dream. The lodge has 27 hotel rooms and can sleep up to 70 guest in those rooms. The lodge is where your getting ready and other events will take place on your special day. Down stairs is the huge bridal room and salon for the girls to get ready in and relax before the start of the ceremony. Just across the way is the man cave and game room where the groom and his groomsmen can have fun playing around with all the games and flat screen tv while getting ready. Your reception will also take place at the lodge and on the main floor where the dinning room is located along with the dance floor and a full bar room. There will be a before ceremony cocktail hour where all the guest will gather and mingle in the full bar area of the lodge. This will take place on the main floor and the bar area of the lodge. Once it’s close to ceremony time everyone will hope in their cars and take the short drive up the road to the Grand Sierra Point wedding ceremony location.
Small ceremonies can take place in the back court yard, but most all ceremonies take place up the road. Located about a mile up the road is the ceremony site at Grand Sierra Point. The ceremony site is located just at the edge of a clearing in the forest with stunning views of the foothills, canyons and the greater Sacramento area. Once the ceremony is over your guest will head back to the lodge for another cocktail hour.
