Sierra Foothill Weddings:
Capturing the Romance of Yesteryear

The scene looks as if it might have come from the 1850s. An old pump organ wheezes musical accompaniment as the newly married bride and groom emerge triumphantly from the little white church on the hill. Garlands of native redbud and acacia entwine stair railings at the door of the old building. The happy couple clambers into a horse-drawn carriage and is whisked off to a garden reception at an old country inn.

The Emmanuel Church, built in 1855 and pictured at the right, is but one of dozens of unusual settings for weddings in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Wineries, bed and breakfast inns, apple ranches, spacious old-fashioned gardens and even lovingly landscaped county fairgrounds all offer outstanding venues for weddings large or small.
The outdoor settings are generally available from spring through fall. Check with individual sites for specific dates.
