Empire Mine Wedding with Reception at Miners Foundry in Grass Valley, CA

I have been a wedding photographer for over 14 years and have photographed weddings at some amazing venues. One of my absolute favorite venues has to be Empire Mine in Grass Valley, CA. When I get to take a location like this, add in a timeless beauty of a bride, a dapper groom and I become a very happy photographer. The mansion in the middle of gorgeous landscaping provided a perfect backdrop of the ceremony. Then across the property the old gold mine buildings gave lots of amazing textures, colors and patterns to work with for the portraits. This combination of scenery and architecture makes Empire Mine a top choice for outdoor weddings.

The perfect reception venue

Empire Mine has a reception venue on site which is outdoors. This couple wanted an indoor reception and found the perfect match to their ceremony venue with The Miners Foundry. A former factory that made parts for the huge mining industry in the area, Miners Foundry was industrial yet romantic. Once again I had plenty of textures and details to use for pictures. I couldn’t be happier with how the images turned out from this wedding and just made me fall in love with these venues even more. I recommend them to any of my clients looking for unique locations for their wedding.
