A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

From its perch atop a wooded knoll, this historic Victorian mansion immediately commands attention with its multi-gabled roof, wraparound porch, and beautiful period details. Originally built as a residence in 1853, today this outstanding example of Gold Rush-era elegance continues to glitter as an utterly charming special event venue managed by Wedgewood Weddings.

Getting married at the mansion is like being the heroine of a historic novel. The upstairs Bridal Room, decorated with gilded mirrors and rich red velvet, affords a peek out the window to watch as guests arrive. A graceful dual staircase descends to the main floor, where the bride proceeds to her choice of three ceremony sites. The first is a glass-enclosed, light-filled stone Veranda, a cozy space that recalls a bygone era and overlooks a charming garden lawn. Next is the sprawling lawn itself, which enjoys a backdrop of the mansion's quaint façade and the snow-dusted mountains in the distance. Lastly, there's a lush forest retreat around the corner, where towering sequoias, pines, and a lily pond seem right out of a fairy tale.

Each of these picturesque locales, as well as the mansion's lovely interior, can also be used for taking romantic photos while guests mingle in the Dining Room and adjoining bar. With dark wood accents, comfortable couches, and magnificent hand-carved 19th-century fireplaces, these handsome spaces are ideal for serving cocktails or a selection of wines from the nearby Nello Olivo Vineyards. The Nello Olivo Wine Cellar and Tasting Room is actually housed in the mansion's basement, and makes a novel social hour option.

For a regal reception, the magnificent Empire Room sets the perfect tone of nostalgic glamour. Eight glass-and-brass Victorian-style chandeliers drop from the soaring, open-beamed cathedral ceiling, casting a warm glow over elegantly decked tables and the hardwood dance floor. Off to one side, there's a draped stage for entertainment or a sweetheart table, and the adjoining Veranda can house the buffet or wedding cake.
