Melissa and Jerrid were married on a hot summer afternoon at Empire Mine State Park in Grass Valley CA. Empire Mine is one of my favorite wedding locations to take pictures at! There are so many stunning locations on the grounds that it makes my head spin every time I photograph a wedding or engagement session there. They opted for a first look before the ceremony so they could get lots of great photos before hand and enjoy their cocktail hour with their guest. Their wedding ceremony took place on the front steps of the old cottage, which is a beautiful back drop. Luckily for them and all their guest it took place in the afternoon shade on that super summer hot day! After the ceremony everyone enjoyed dinner and dancing down at the clubhouse patio at Empire Mine. Their wedding turned out great and I had a great time talking photos all day long.
