Grand Island Mansion Wedding Photographer
The Grand Island Mansion is the crown jewel of wedding venues in the California Delta located near the charming town of Walnut Grove. Honestly I think it’s one of the best wedding locations in all of the greater Sacramento area if you’re looking for a more of an elegant or formal wedding location. Then you can not beat this location when it comes to the wow factor. You will definitely make all your guest jealous that you’re getting married at this location. There is a reason that the word grand is in it’s title, the front pillars to the mansion are just massive and one of the many features of this wedding venue. I could photograph a bride and groom all day long in the front of the this mansion. On your wedding day brides and grooms can get ready in some of the many rooms at the mansion. Most all wedding ceremonies take place on the front lawn. There are two locations, one on the far right side and one on the far left side of the mansion’s front lawn. If the weather doesn’t cooperate on your big day the wedding ceremony can be held indoor or in the back wedding reception tent. If you’re having a bigger wedding your reception will take place in an attractive reception tent behind the mansion. While smaller weddings have the option to have their dinner and dancing located inside the Grand Island Mansion. The dinner will take place in the main dinning hall and your dancing will take place on the lower floor in the ballroom and bar area. One of the bonuses of the this wedding venue is that it can host wedding ceremonies and receptions all year long unlike some locations in the great Sacramento area. After working lots of weddings over the years I would have to say that they have some of the best wedding food around. I’ve even attended one of their Sunday brunches, which by the way is the only way to visit the mansion if you’re not a wedding guest and the food was excellent! The mansion and it’s property is a photographers playground with such massive grounds and house to photograph inside and out. There’s the front of the mansion with it’s pillars, steps, fountains and tall cypress trees. Then just across the road are breathtaking views of the California Delta water ways and the Steamboat Slough. Nothing beats taking some sunset photos in front of this Slough on your wedding day. There’s more fountains out back, a pool, tennis courts and a private pear orchard that’s a great back drop for photos. If you can find some time to go inside the mansion for photos you’ll get lost in all the rooms and hallways filled with vintage and antique decorations. There are some many unique areas of the house for the bride and groom to have their pictures taken that it’s mind boggling. So again if you are a bride and groom and are looking from one of the premier wedding locations in all of the greater Sacramento area then look no further than the Grand Island Mansion in Walnut Grove.
