Classic architecture, European craftsmanship, and luxurious interiors are just a few things we love about historic wedding venues. Sacramento has some of the best, making it the ideal choice if you're looking for a timeless, classic wedding venue that speaks to your vintage style.
But, before we start, what exactly is a vintage wedding, and what does it entail?
The term vintage is generally quite broad, but we draw inspiration from any era between the 1920s and 1970s when discussing vintage weddings. With such a broad era, you can have tons of fun with your vintage-themed celebration, as there are many options! Whether you're going for the romantic, timeless, or glamorous vintage style - there's something you're bound to love.
More than lace, blush tones, and extravagant centerpieces, vintage wedding style is about bringing a timeless, romantic vibe to your big day through unique pieces that bridge the gap between past and present.
The most important part of a vintage chic wedding? The venue, of course! Once you've locked that in, the rest is a breeze. Sacramento has some of the most dreamy historical wedding venues, and we've compiled a list just for you.
There's something about vintage weddings that makes us swoon, and the historic Sterling Hotel is a venue that instantly grabs your attention with its authentic Victorian charm. Originally built in 1894 as a luxury residence, it transformed into a boutique hotel in 1988. Today, its nostalgic glamor and prime location make it a sought-after venue for vintage wedding celebrations. With its high ceilings and suspended crystal chandeliers, Sterling Hotel can transport you back in time while surrounding you with modern conveniences in the heart of downtown Sacramento. Vintage-themed weddings often lean into moody lighting options. Consider adding a few candle sticks and exposed lightbulbs to complement the many crystal chandeliers and the stained glass rotunda.
The street-side outdoor patio also has lush greenery and mature trees to give your special day that final magic touch. Historic venues and vintage themes are a love story on their own, so when planning your vintage chic wedding, remember to consider the small details. From lace décor to your save the dates一they should all speak the same language to transform your space to feel historic and elegant.
