Stacy + Nick – A colorful DIY Clarksburg wedding!

Nick and Stacy were married at the end of May and could not have been happier to spend a beautiful day with their family and friends at Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg, CA. When you first meet these two you know they were made for each other. You meet Stacy and she brings a smile immediately to your face as you can see how excited and passionate she is about life, love and good design. Yep a girl after our hearts when it comes to design. Then there is Nick. Standing at 6’9” he has a  presence that almost speaks for itself. Nick however is the cool, calm, collected man who only towers over you in height but embraces you as a friend from the first moment you meet him. They wanted a fun and colorful day for their wedding and Stacy made sure that happened. She made everything, she even had cute boxes labeled and organized with all the fun decor she created. With a little help from her friends and Clarissa, Nick and Stacy’s day of coordinator. Thanks so much for letting Lisa and I capture the start of your adorable family. We could not be happier for you!

Eric and Maria’s elegant foodie wedding

If you didn’t already see it, head on over to this post to see all the custom design we created for Eric and Maria’s incredible wedding. We are so excited to finally share it! We’ve been holding off because (drumroll….) it’s being featured in the latest issue of Real Weddings Magazine! We are so happy for them and we know a ton of couples are going to be inspired by their clever ideas. Congratulations!

Eric and Maria are just about the sweetest couple you’ll ever meet. They’ve got it all: they are smart, sweet and kind, good looking, and and so in love. We loved getting to be a part of their engagement and wedding. And what a wedding it was! So unique with tons of personal touches, and lots of fun people. The theme for the wedding, as Maria described it, was an elegant farmer’s market. They both love fresh and local food so why not share that with the people they love best?

We began our day with these two as they both got ready in separate rooms at the Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento.

The girls and the guys walked over to Capitol park. It was a beautiful day.

Time for Eric and Maria’s super sweet first look!

So, Maria works for the state Assembly members and got us permission to use the upper balconies of the State capitol! It was gorgeous!

This angle has the Cathedral in the background, where they would marry very soon after!

Then it was time to head over to the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament to get these two married! The Cathedral is always such a beautiful place to photograph.

We all hopped in the limo and headed to the Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg for the reception!

I loooove the Old Sugar Mill. With all of it’s rustic charm, it’s such a great place for photos!

After some quick portraits, it was party time! The reception that Eric and Maria threw for their guests was phenomenal. They war they carried out their “elegant farmers’ market” theme was great! From the rustic decor, with textured burlap runners, galvanized watering cans and lots of beautiful flowers, to the dinner setup with “food stations” just like booths at a real farmers market.

You can read all about the design we created for this wedding, including the favor tags (above) and seating chart and table names (below) on Eric and Maria’s design post.

I LOVE how they did the food! There were stations for each type of food — the bakery, meat, and produce. The guests were encouraged to mingle as they went from station to station.

In lieu of a cake, there was an impressive array of mini pies, baked by Sugar and Spice.

It’s always fun to sneak back outside for a few night shots.

And our last shot of the day, just might be our favorite…as Eric and Maria were walking back to their reception to continue the celebration, Geoff captured this beautiful image of the happy couple headed off to start their new life as man and wife. 🙂
