Matthew & Thao had one of the more vibrant weddings of the summer, we loved this couple and their super fun bridal party, and The Grand Island Mansion was the perfect venue for them. The Grand Island Mansion from Walnut Grove, California, is the perfect location to host your special occasion. This historic landmark, located just 30 miles from Downtown Sacramento, is a spacious, full service Wedding and Reception facility and is a very unique wedding venue!

Having had the opportunity to photograph Matthew & Thao’s engagement photo session just months before their wedding day, gave me a chance to really get to know them and their open and fun personalities. Their Sacramento engagement photography session was at Folsom Lake State Recreation Area - one of my favorite outdoor locations. Their engagement portrait shoot was filled with lots of laughter, intimate moments, and just fully enjoying the moment. After getting to know each other so well, and the bride and groom being comfortable in front of camera, I was confident that we will capture amazing wedding photography images that day!

The morning preparations for bride & groom started at the beautiful The Westin Sacramento hotel that’s located on the banks of the beautiful Sacramento River. This upscale hotel is a gorgeous location for getting ready time and we were able to get lots of amazing wedding portraits for the bride and groom. After Matthew & Thao had their beautiful and emotional first look moment at The Westin Sacramento, we all headed to their wedding venue for the wedding ceremony time. Upon arrival to the beautiful and ornate Grand Island Mansion in Walnut Grove, we noticed the beautiful wedding decor, done by the talented team at CL Decor. All the closest family and friends gathered at the outdoor ceremony site awaiting for the bride and groom to arrive. The wedding ceremony was very touching and emotional, our Sacramento wedding photographer team loved to witness that this couple has a genuine, strong love for each other.

The wedding reception took place in marquee event tent that is one of the unique reception places at the Grand Island Mansion, which totally complemented the couple’s wedding style. This historic mansion has no shortage of amazing locations on the estate to host your event and capture unforgettable pictures. The Sergey Bidun Photography team worked diligently to capture all of the special moments of the day. After a short indoor cocktail hour for the guests, and some romantic portraits for the newlyweds, we all moved on to the tented reception site. As one of Sacramento top wedding photographer teams, we had a feeling that the awesome bridal party + gorgeous venue location are going to result in epic wedding pictures, and that was exactly the case! Matthew & That’s wedding pictures are a true testament of their genuine affections, beautiful loving souls, and fun personalities.
