Marin + JP | Nevada City Photographer | Empire Mine Wedding

When the weather forecast called for almost certain rain on Marin and JP’s wedding day, Marin wrote me a hopefully optimistic email.  She said she had purchased some umbrellas and added, “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 at the Empire Mine in Grass Valley were the wedding ceremony took place.  After the ceremony we went to the Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City where 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 by far the most organized that I have encountered.  Marin and JP are off the chart as far as craftiness.  They sourced the meat for the wedding from their friends’ farm (Skyelark Ranch), made the wine and beer, wedding dress, and so many other details themselves.  I set up a photo station for a little self service portraiture, and was reminded how fun this is (and a great way to get more pics of guests). I feel so stoked to have been a part of this wedding!
