Fall is one of the most incredible times to wed in Foresthill, California. With all the beautiful towering trees that change color and the one of a kind view, this October Forest House Lodge wedding is filled with incredible forest wedding pictures, not far out of Sacramento.
Nick and Philana wed at Forest House Lodge with their family and friends by their sides and a top notch vendor team. The day started in the Forest House Lodge court yard, where Philana and her closest girlfriends got ready for her big debut. Philana gifted all her friends, pajama sets that matched her black tie wedding day. For herself, she wore a matching white pajama set. Find you own here at BridalRobes.com
Philana chose a Maggie Sotterro wedding dress found at Trudys in San Jose, that complimented her personal style. She styled her designer dress with a hip length bridal veil, Free Bird Shoes, and vintage curls.
To help with her wedding day glam, Philana chose Christi Reynolds Beauty to take her look to the next level. Christi Reynolds is one of Sacramento’s best wedding beauty professionals, and she helps all brides look and FEEL amazing. To top of her glowing wedding look, was her large overflowing bridal bouquet by Flowers by Jordan Marie. We are so obsessed with the cascading florals or dark fall colors that were the highlight of her October Forest House Lodge Wedding.
Nick and his groomsmen and grooms woman, got ready in the bar at Forest House Lodge. They suited up, cheered to Nick’s bright future, and shared tons of laughs. His party wore white shirts and ruby red bow ties (to match the ladies), while nick added a grey vest with his navy blue wedding slacks.
Before their big “I Do” the couple opted for a private first look on Forest House Lodge’s patio. This allowed them a few special moments to really soak in all the moments before they walk down the aisle. If you’re interested in more first look moments, visit our blog here.
