Elegant Barn Wedding

Gold Country

January 11, 2019

Every year we get to photograph some of the most beautiful private estate weddings in Northern California.  Although it takes more planning and vision- with the right professionals, your space can be transformed into a perfect and unique wedding venue.  This is exactly what Paige and Andrew got to experience first hand when they tied the knot last September at their family home in Auburn, Ca.    Their day was complete perfection gushing with unique details thanks to our friends at Jenn Robirds Events.  Scroll down to see the most unique thing we’ve EVER seen at a wedding (and we’ve been to hundreds of weddings!!)

Barn  weddings do NOT have to be rustic!

Ok and I just HAD to include this behind the scenes photos of  Jenn Robirds Events... we love that she goes above and beyond to make sure wedding details are perfect. I must have watched her swiffer this dance floor at least a dozen  times before guests arrived.

We love that the entire property was used throughout the day, which created the perfect flow for guests.

Mini margaritas topped with a mini tostada- YES!   Add a mini taco in a lime wedge and you have cocktail hour perfection.

And hands down the COOLEST thing we’ve ever seen at a wedding!  They commissioned Chad Hunder Plein Air Painter/Artist to paint the reception scene.  I’ll be honest, when I saw “painter paints dinner” on the schedule, I wasn’t sure what that meant.  Yet when Chad arrived and started working  (in the perfect painters outfit), it added so much to the evening.  When Paige & Andrew came to our home for their photo reveal, we got to see the final artwork which was AMAZING!!!

And when your new last name is Schmidt- it only makes sense to have the hashtag #schmidtshow and create a custom neon sign for above the bar!
