Inspired by today’s non-traditional brides looking for unique and cool wedding ideas, One Fine Day is an experiential showcase featuring many of Northern California’s finest wedding purveyors and professionals. From visionary wedding planners and vintage letter press printers to florists specializing in seasonal and local flowers and pâtissiers with an array of deserts including cakes, pies and cookies to sample, brides will find everything they need to ensure they stand out from the crowd on their special day.

“We are finding today’s brides are rebelling from the “more is more” mantra that guided wedding design in years past, they are looking for ways to make their day an authentic and soulful representation of themselves,” explains Carrie Hawthorne, co-owner of Gold Dust Collective, a boutique event and wedding planner.  “They are choosing design that reflects their real lives and quality in the details over garish opulence. They are choosing local and organic over fussy food, DJ’s who play actual records, vintage photo booths, creative cocktails, and editorial photographs.  It’s more relaxed and real.”

Kat Kress, the booking coordinator at the Miners Foundry agrees, wedding rentals of the historic building have steadily increased over the last year with nearly forty-five weddings planned for 2014.  Many of the brides are traveling as far as the Bay Area and Southern California in search of a venue and town that can offer not only the bride and groom, but their guests, an unforgettable weekend.  The Foundry with its beautiful stone walls and hand hewn timber beams is the perfect blank slate to create the popular rustic chic weddings that are in such high demand.  And Nevada City with its historic charm and easy access to the beautiful natural landscape is the perfect weekend getaway.  The press is taking notice as well, last year, weddings at the Miners Foundry were featured on MarthaStewartWeddings.com and in Real Weddings Magazine.

“Though most of our couples are from out of the area, there is usually some connection to Nevada City. This is a place that gets stuck in your heart. It doesn’t hurt that we have a little something to offer everyone- both wild and refined,” says Erin Lewis, co-owner of Gold Dust Collective.  “We find that couples are inviting their guests to make a long weekend of it, outlining the outdoor attractions and activities in town.”

This year’s inaugural event also has ideas and inspiration for same sex unions,   live music from jazz quartet Hot Club and DJ’s Shocks & Struts spinning only vinyl during the live fashion show, and a full-bar with signature specialty drinks.

One Fine Day creates a fun cocktail party environment, where a bride and entourage, can learn hair and makeup tips and tricks, meet and engage with vendors, sample food and drink, and above all gather inspiration to throw a party of a lifetime.

Nevada City Winter Craft Fair

 

The fun and festive Nevada City Winter Craft Fair returns just in time for the holiday season to the Miners Foundry Cultural Center, Sunday, December 13, 2015, 10am-6pm, in downtown Nevada City.  Tickets are $3, children 12 and under are admitted free of charge.  Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.

The independent, juried craft fair showcases over sixty of the local region’s top Etsy vendors, artisans, designers, do-it-yourself crafters, and features their unique, handmade, original and repurposed art, clothing, accessories, jewelry, and housewares. Attendees can also expect to find letterpress, paper and stationary items as well as children’s things, toys, ceramics, bath products, and many more unique holiday gifts.

“The Nevada City Craft Fair features the best of the best local talent in indie design and craft. You will find beautiful and functional items, handmade with excellent craftsmanship from up and coming artists and crafters,” explains the festival’s new producer Naomi Cabral. “There is a level of modernity and fine artistry to the designs that the indie craft festival movement is known for through out the country. The Nevada City Craft Fair is no different in its depth. In fact, with its unique small mountain town setting, the originality and sustainability of the crafts you will find is even more prevalent.”

The first Nevada City Craft Festival was produced the summer of 2010 by a group of local young crafters, artists and social do-gooders who were inspired by the independent entrepreneurship and creative talents
in their community as well as the success of the Renegade Craft Fairs across the US and Europe. The bi-annual event continues to grow and to date has introduced over 9,000 attendees to more than 600 local and regional artists, designers and crafters.

The Nevada City Craft Fair is more than a holiday shopping bazaar, it is a celebration of local hardworking artists and the American craft movement. The artists showing their works are creating beautiful, inspiring, useful products; pioneering new industries all the while improving our local community.
