Jefferson Street Mansion Benicia California Real Wedding

All brides have visions of how they want their wedding day. They will of course think of the dress but it is everything else for the day that completes it. It is extremely important to select the right location for the ceremony as well as the reception to provide the right feel for your nuptials. The word that comes to mind for Michelle and Brandon's California wedding is SPECTACULAR. It is was amazing from top to bottom but the choice of the venues definitely played a part. The wedding took place at St. Peter's Chapel on Mare Island. The chapel was constructed in 1901 and is renowned for its stained glass windows. It is so amazing. But the next venue was even more fantastic. They had their reception at the Jefferson Street Mansion in Benicia, California. This incredible edifice is located in the Benicia Arsenal where both Generals Grant and Sherman once resided. This Civil War mansion was first constructed in 1861 and has been fully restored. How can you not have a spectacular wedding with venues like this? The scenery alone at these locations was breathtaking not to mention the historical significance. jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-22 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-6 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-24 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-5 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-10 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-23 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-12 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-13 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-7 jefferson-street-mansion-benicia-california-real-weddings-14

Michelle's dress was nothing less than fantastic. It was strapless with an incredible train. She accented her ensemble with a lovely matching necklace and bracelet. Her long hair cascading over her shoulder was perfect. Of course, the veil just completed it. Michelle and Brandon just made such a handsome couple.

For a wedding like this, you could drive just any car. Even a limousine did not seem elaborate enough. They drove in a Rolls Royce.
