Castle dreams come true

IONE — Engaged couples need not think Disneyland or Vegas to dream of being married in a castle, when the bride and groom can be king and queen for a day at the Preston Castle in Ione. To assist in making those dreams come true, AmadorWeddings.com and Preston Castle Foundation announce the 2013 Amador Wedding Faire on Saturday, April 7 from noon to 4 p.m.

“What princess bride wouldn’t want to be married in a castle?” said Carol Harper, editor of Amador Community News, founder of AmadorWeddings.com, as well as the event’s coordinator. “We’re just fortunate that there is one in Amador County.”

The Preston Castle was built between 1890 and 1894, and has had historical significance for California and Amador County. It has been named a California State Historical Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Plans have been ambitious to make it a place where both tourists and communities could come together and realize the value of such an edifice.

“The Preston Castle Foundation is composed entirely of volunteers and all our efforts are directed at preserving and restoring the castle for future use,” said Karl Knobelauch, PCF Vice President. “Events like these help gain exposure for the castle, not only as a venue for weddings, but for other events as well.”

Preston Castle’s most current and critical renovation needs are working restrooms, flooring and ceiling work, room renovations and much more.

For more information, the history and the current fundraising needs visit PrestonCastle.com.

The Wedding Faire itself is planned to be simple and excellent, with a focus more on the castle itself as an impressive locale.

Admission for the event is only $5, of which all proceeds go to the Preston Castle Foundation.
