No. 254 – Jeniece and Dustin

Yesterday we kicked off our 2013 wedding season with Jeniece and Dustin’s wedding at the historic Sacramento Grand Ballroom. Our day began in their hotel suite as they each got ready and we didn’t stop rolling til they danced their final dance at the end of the evening. The day turned out perfectly — the weather was great, the location looked superb, and everything went off without a hitch, and we certainly came back to our studio with plenty of great footage to use in their wedding video. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at their vow and ring exchange from their ceremony:

Venue Review: Sacramento Grand Ballroom

They don’t call it “Grand” for nothing! Sacramento Grand Ballroom is one of our favorite venues to shoot at in the Sacramento area. The historic building provides the perfect backdrop for any elegant wedding. The natural lighting that comes into the venue makes for beautiful video (and of course photography). The high ceilings, chandeliers, pillars, and vintage feel far surpases any traditional hotel ballroom. The staff is professional (it’s always so much more elegant to have a line of servers delivering plates straight to the table rather than bringing them out on large trays that guests are trying to avoid bumping into). And with the help of a top-notch wedding planner like Emily with Event Architects, they make sure every detail is perfect for you and your guests. Here’s a look at a recent wedding reception that we shot there:
