In the room that the bride was getting ready in we ended up taking a couple bridal photos of her sitting on the bed. The rooms up on the second floor usually have some great natural light coming trough the windows all day long. This give some nice soft light falling onto her and adds to the beauty of the photo.
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. You can not beat this location when it comes to the wow factor of the grounds and everything on the property. The front pillars to the mansion are just massive and one of the many features of this wedding venue.
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 larger wedding your reception will take place in an eloquent reception tent behind the mansion. While smaller events have the option to have their dinner and dancing located inside the mansion. With the dinner taking place on the main floor and the dancing being held downstairs.
The mansion and it’s property is a photographers playground with such massive grounds and a house to photograph inside and out. There’s the front of the mansion with it’s pillars, steps, fountains and tall cypress trees. Across the road are breathtaking views of the California Delta water ways and the Steamboat Slough. Behind the mansion are more fountains, a pool, tennis courts and a private pear orchard that’s a great back drop for pictures. Inside the mansion photo opportunities bound vintage decorated rooms, hallways amazing lounge areas. This is always a plus during summer weddings to go inside and cool off.
Here’s a list of unique services that they offer for events.
