The day started for me at the quaint Outside Inn, where Tara & her bridesmaids got ready. However, earlier that morning Tara, her family, and friends did an AMAZING job creating all the bouquets and floral arrangements with flowers from Dinner Bell Farm.
The ceremony and reception were held at The Miners Foundry in Nevada City -- a venue in my hometown that holds a special place in my own heart. The Stone Room inside of the foundry features rustic wood & brick with twinkling lights around the windows and chandeliers above the room. It was an absolutely magical setting as the light came in during their ceremony.
I stole Tara & Noel away afterwards for a quick detour around downtown Nevada City, where we stumbled across the Arts Festival. Live music, vendors, and art filled up the street.
For Tara & Noel, music is a common thread that not only brought them together, but lives on through their relationship. It was wonderful to see this passion and love of theirs throughout their special day. From the live music at their own reception to the venue itself, and the street fair. This day was truly a reflection of their love story.
