We love filming Forest House Lodge weddings! Many people think of destination weddings as a sandy beach somewhere tropical, but just one hour out of the city you can find some incredible locations that feel like a destination. One such place is the Forest House Lodge located in Forest Hill, CA. Just about 15 minutes off Interstate 80 in Auburn, this location has some of the best vistas in the state and is home to expansive canyons that show off the mountain country vibe.
The lodge is fantastic! It has huge bride and groom suites (complete with game room – the biggest one I’ve ever seen at a wedding facility!) But perhaps the most well known feature of this location is the best canyon view ceremony site in Northern California…
And a charming reception hall that channels the Sierra Nevada spirit.
Jana & Grant were wonderful to work with. Their personal touches extended into every aspect of the wedding and it was an absolutely pleasure to be honored to film their wedding.
Since Placer County does not allow any sort of outside firework or sparklers, glow sticks are the way to go. It is the first time we’ve seen them and they worked out perfectly! Enjoy their short film!
