We found a perfect location for the intimate 20 person wedding ceremony. The historic Huffaker School was built in 1867 and relocated to it's current resting place at Bartley Ranch Park in the 1990s. The beautiful old building is full of character with its' original desks, books, and blackboards. The bride, Sarah, is also a teacher, so we knew this was the right place.
Bartley Ranch has a ton of beautiful photo locations and Jessi LeMay Photography used them all to her advantage creating some amazing shots.
The brunch reception took place at The Wild River Grille on the banks of the Truckee River near downtown Reno.
