A Beautiful Winery Wedding at Viaggio Winery

Viaggio Winery is a stunning venue for one’s big day, located in the middle of one of the most famous wine making regions in California, in the “heart” of Lodi’s Wine Country.       We loved this private bridal cottage for the bride and women to get ready in Viaggio is a secluded and private estate with classic elegance surrounded by beautiful walnut orchards along the Mokelumne River.     The groom and groomsmen were simply charming and the bride was and lovely and elegant; that along with the incredible surroundings of the venue made for an absolutely stunning wedding day and wedding day photographs. We were loving the grand staircase leading down to sweeping green lawns overlooking the Mokelumne River. The golf carts came in handy getting around this lavish estate! The wedding celebration took place under the shady, natural canopy of the beautiful walnut orchard       We snuck away from the cocktail hour to do create some gorgeous romantic portraits during the sunset before the reception started The guests were enjoying themselves as well!   A sneak peek of the reception room before the guests entered     Were the bride and groom avid Kings fans…? Or where they simply friends with the charismatic basketball playing lion..? Indeed they were friends with this larger than life mascot we have all came to love!  Slamson’s been entertaining the crowds at Sacramento Kings games with his high-energy antics for over 10 years. And he confidently did not disappoint these two love birds when he showed up that evening. And they lived happily ever...
