Wedding Update! Location

We are so excited to announce that our wedding now has a confirmed location! Actually, Lynelle's mother, stepfather and grandmother have generously offered to host the ceremony and reception at Jolie Vue, the Waterbury family home. The house is a lovely little farmhouse in the foothills of the Nevadas, just outside of Sacramento, California. Surrounded by fruit trees, pine forest and wild blackberry brambles, the property is an idyllic retreat for us, away from the bustle and noise of Los Angeles. Lynelle's parents keep chickens, ducks, geese, hounds and horses; additionally, we are often visited by deer, coyotes, bobcats, hawks, and on rare occasions, a beautiful white kite.

We do realize that the distance of the property from LA will make it hard for all of our guests to attend. We are currently researching economical and comfortable hotels in the Newcastle/auburn area for out of town guests. The house is about a 30 min drive from the Sacramento airport, and is a 7 hour drive from LA, taking the I-5 most of the way. And for those who simply can't make the distance, we understand that your hearts are always with us on our special day.
