Nevada City, California Wedding – Jen & Mike

Have we ever told you how much we love to travel for weddings? Taking the journey with cameras in hand to Nevada City, CA was no exception.  Some of the kindest, most genuine people inhabit this beautiful little town nestled in the foothills of Gold Country. Jen and Mike’s family and friends surrounded them as they prepared for their day at two historic inns set in the small town of Nevada City. Jen prepared for the wedding in the lovely Parsonage bed and breakfast while Mike got ready just down the street at The Outside Inn. Nevada City has such a fascinating history which is evident every where you go, including the chapel where they said their vows, St. Canice. After witnessing the heart-warming ceremony, the guests split up to eat lunch and reconvene later that evening for the reception. The portraits that followed lunch was at the awe inspiring Crystal Hermitage Gardens at Ananda Village. Can you imagine a more lovely spot to take your wedding day portraits? Tulips, cherry trees and mountain views were just a part of the recipe that made this beautiful couple so easy to photograph. Jen looked absolutely stunning in her dress which was reborn from her Mother’s own wedding dress. Doesn’t she look like an angel in that first photo?

The reception took place at an old Gold Foundry in the center of Nevada City which is now the Miners Foundry Cultural Center. An old-timey group of musicians played bluegrass and mountain music as the guests danced the contra while whooping and hollering into the night. Delicious appetizer dishes, drinks and desserts adorned the hall on all sides making it one tasty evening. It was an absolute pleasure traveling to California to capture their wedding photography!

The next day we spent a lovely sunny afternoon in the Wedding Orchard. What is a wedding orchard you ask? We just love this idea! You get your closest friends and family together and plant fruit trees. Everyone chose which variety of fruit they wanted to be represented by, and then planted the trees with help from the resident botanical expert, Michael Many Blessings.  As you can probably see from the photos, this was no easy task but worth every bead of sweat in the end. What fruit tree are you?
