Tuscan Villa Inspired Wedding in the Heart of Amador County


Natalie and Rob’s wedding was extremely special to me. I had photographed Natalie’s twin sister’s wedding a year and a half ago and had felt a special connection with her family. So, when Natalie met with me after she was engaged, we got right into planning mode for her engagement session and got her date on the books.

On the wedding day, I pulled up to their venue, the Grand Reserve Inn, and felt immediately transported into an italian countryside. The venue is set back quite away from the road and is completely surrounded by vineyards on sloping hills. Natalie’s vision for the day paired with her event planner’s eye (Shannon of Tin and Twine Events) and ability to tie it all together made for one magical wedding day.





























A BIG shout out to all of the vendors who made this wedding run so effortlessly!
