Jacob & Juliana:Empire Mine Wedding

So how does one even begin to start describing the most special day of their lives? I am still in utter disbelief that this day even happened, someone pinch me please. Empire mine in Grass Valley, CA, was the first and last wedding venue we looked into. We knew instantly this is was our spot for our big day. We fell in love with its gorgeous grounds and historical charm. Planning this day was... okay I am not going to lie, one of the most stressful things ever.  When you first think  of planning a wedding, your initial thoughts are, "oh no big deal, one thing at a time and there you go." Ha! This was not the case for me, having to overcome many challenges and kicking myself tremendously for not saving up to hire that wedding planner, but my mom sure did become my saving grace with all the planning and boy did she make sure I stayed on top of my to do lists. But would I do all over again? You better believe I would do it all again in a heartbeat. The outcome was positively worth it! We had such incredible vendors from our awesome DJ and florist to our wonderful videographer and caterer, we thank each and everyone of you for making our day perfect for us. Yes not everything went as planned, which many people warn you about quite often that it is bound to happen one way or another. The beautiful rented chairs I had selected did not show up in time for us to use for the ceremony, it rained on our parade (literally) with tents blocking the venue's gorgeous views, items and decor were misplaced, and we were running behind schedule (who doesn't?). But once it was all said and done it was the most amazing, spectacular day of our lives celebrated with our closest friends and family. Why you may ask, well because I got to become Jacob Elias Aragon's wife! We felt tremendously loved by all who attended, helped and celebrated. So please take a little time out to view how our magical day played out. A day my husband, Jacob and I will always remember and cherish.
