The Willow Ballroom Wedding // Chandler & Alex

Chandler and Alex’s wedding at The Willow Ballroom in Hood, CA, located just outside of Sacramento, was an exceptional celebration held in one of the most breathtaking indoor venues. Offering a versatile space that accommodates both the ceremony and reception indoors, The Willow Ballroom emerged as a perfect choice, especially with the unpredictable fall weather. The indoor setting provided an intimate and cozy atmosphere, setting the stage for a day filled with love and joy.

The day unfolded with the couple getting ready separately, building anticipation for the heartfelt first look where they exchanged thoughtful and emotional vows. 

Before the ceremony, the couple and their bridal party ventured to a private estate owned by The Willow Ballroom, just a short distance from the venue. This idyllic setting allowed for group photos and additional couples portraits, ensuring that the couple could fully enjoy cocktail hour and personally greet their guests before the reception commenced.

Fortunately, the weather played its part, and the couple’s dream of capturing sunset portraits outdoors became a reality. Against the backdrop of the venue’s surroundings, Chandler and Alex’s couples portraits bathed in the warm hues of the setting sun created timeless and enchanting memories.

The surprises continued with a bubble gun and cold sparklers on the dance floor, injecting an element of unexpected fun that delighted all the guests. These playful additions added a touch of magic to the celebration, making it truly unforgettable.

Chandler and Alex’s wedding at The Willow Ballroom was a day etched in the memories of all who attended. From the intimate moments during the first look to the surprises on the dance floor, every element contributed to a celebration that was not just a union of two souls but a joyous and memorable experience for everyone involved.
