Wedding at Preston Castle in Ione Ca.

November 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The dreams of a bride are to have beautiful wedding. The dreams of a wedding photographer is to have a beautiful location. The first meeting I had with my future bride Vicki for this wedding, I was told the wedding was in Jackson Ca. That is fine with me. The second meeting we had she informed me that the venue had been changed and that they were now going to be married at Preston Castle in Ione. I have never done or seen a wedding at the castle before and was excited to be able to photograph there. The thought of having a wedding at an old Castle might not be appealing to everyone but it was actually very nice. They got married on the front steps of the castle and the reception was staged out back in the courtyard. I did have one concern. The couple has two boys, and so during all my meetings, I talked to Vicki but never seen Pat because he would be home with the kids. The day of the event is the first time I got to meet him. I was happy to know that in fact, I had photographed him before as a groomsmen in a previous wedding. I started off meeting the groom and his men. Usually the men are not ready when i show up but this time they were. It gave us plenty of time to take some cool photos around and in the Castle The bride and her beautiful bridesmaids showed up just a little before the wedding. The couple decided not to see each other before the wedding and so we did the brides photos after the ceremony. The reception held on the courtyard in the back was decorated lovely with Red Roses, wooden blocks that had there initials on them, Mood lighting strung across the span of the yard as well as up lighting on the castle walls. Think for me that best part of the wedding was seeing a couple with an already established family still take the time to make a dream wedding come true.
