Northern California Wedding Planner | Miners Foundry Weddings, Nevada City

Have you ever connected with a space, every time you walk in you just instantly feel at ease? From our first wedding at Miners Foundry Cultural Center in Nevada City back in 2015 to our most recent wedding last fall, it is simply a space a space I could never tire of because it can be something entirely different for every event that takes place there!

The Stone Hall is the show stopper of the venue, from the dramatic beams and stone work to the stone fireplace and when you add a pop of decor like the fabric draping or lounge furniture - it’s just stunning. Some couples choose to do ceremony in the Stone Hall, and reception in the Osborne Room while others have done their ceremony in the upper gallery and used the Stone Hall for dinner & dancing; there are many different variations.

We’ve also done weddings were the ceremony and reception is held in the Stone Hall and during the cocktail hour our team along with the catering staff transition (aka flip) the space from the ceremony set-up to reception. It’s always an exhilarating task and so rewarding to see everyone’s reactions when they come back into the space.

What’s also really great about Miners Foundry, is the proximity to the local shops, bed and breakfasts, hotels and more so the guest experience is always really fun for those who can spend a little time to enjoy Nevada City. Since we are based in Chico, it is an easy (and beautiful) drive to Nevada City and always a treat to work in the area so if you are looking for a really awesome destination in Northern California for your wedding definitely check out Miners Foundry!
~ Happy Planning!

Northern California Wedding Planner | Sneak peeks - Michelle & Eric

Miners Foundry Wedding - Sneak Peeks from Cassie Mae Photography

If you want to see a wedding planner do a happy dance, it's definitely happening when we see sneak peeks posted after a wedding day.  It is so neat to see the highlights from the day and the happiness in the photos.  We know Michelle and Eric had a blast at their wedding and they are loving all of the photos from Cassie Mae Photography.   

Miners Foundry is such a neat wedding venue, and was the perfect setting for Michelle and Eric's spring wedding.  We can't wait to share more and tell you all about the details of their day.

8.29 - Erin & Seth's First Anniversary | The 530 Bride

Planning a wedding all on your own can be an overwhelming task, so when Erin reached out to us and we started talking about everything on her plate, we were more than happy to jump on board.  Erin and Seth had a long distance relationship, not a few hours apart but across seas.  Both of them had demanding jobs and weren't able to devote a lot of time to planning their wedding but that didn't mean they weren't hands on with the details.  Erin found meaning in the small things, no detail left to chance because her wedding and her marriage to Seth had incredible meaning.  

When we sought out venues, we looked for locations that had history and substance as well as industrial or masculine aspects to represent Seth as well.  When we found Miners Foundry, everything fell into place.  Grass Valley and Nevada City are both considered small towns but there were no shortage of creative artists and wedding professionals to choose from!  

Here we are a year later, and still just in awe of how magical their wedding day was.  Life settles back in and a new chapter unfolds in your first year of marriage.  In this case, Erin and Seth welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world this spring and have many more amazing chapters to come.  Here are some of our favorite shots from their wedding captured by Artpix Portrait Studio!

Erin & Seth's wedding weekend was romantic and so special, it was truly just about them as it should be.  These two have had many miles between them for much of their relationship but as husband and wife they will never part.  

Congratulations on your first year of marriage! 

Cheers!
