Crafty Empire Mine Wedding in Grass Valley

Marin and JP are super crafty people. Their Empire Mine wedding ceremony in Grass Valley was incredible. What a beautiful venue. After the ceremony, they had their reception a few miles away at The Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City.

The forecast called for almost certain rain on Marin and JP’s wedding day. Marin wrote me a hopefully optimistic email regarding the weather, and said “As my Nana used to say ‘I’m not made of sugar, I’m not going to melt!'”  As luck would have it, it rained and hailed, but just at the perfect times.  The skies were moody and wild and nobody melted.  After the ceremony storm clouds graced us as the setting sun painted the sky with touches of pink and orange.  

Between Farm to Table Catering and Marin and JP, the wedding coordination for this lovely affair was super organized.  Marin and JP incredibly crafty people.  The meat for dinner was from their friends’ farm, Skylark Ranch. They made the wine and beer, wedding dress, and so many other details themselves.  A friend painted the backdrop for the photo station I set up for them. I feel so stoked to know Marin and JP and to have been a part of their super crafty Empire Mine wedding and Miner’s Foundry reception.

Check out Phoebe and Ariel’s wedding in Sea Ranch for another wedding with excellent architecture in an epic setting.
