Kerstin and Tobin are ambitious and what a team! Not only did they decide to plan a wedding at their home in Nevada City, but they also had to renovate their newly purchased house and transform their outside landscape. Tobin, an architect, has designed three phases of improvements to the house. This was phase one. Truly amazing to see the progress. When I first met Kerstin in January, the house was nearly gutted, but by the date of the wedding, June 1st, the house was transformed. It was down to the wire, e.g., the kitchen appliances went in the day before the wedding, but it seemed to all work, and the outside was all decked out for a beautiful wedding. And what a lovely wedding it was. The wedding ceremony was held on their new lawn and the reception under a sparkly white tent. Art in Bloom, created an amazing array of green and purple flower arrangements to adorn the tables and a scrumptious three course meal was served by Farm to Table Catering. Each course was paired with a specific wine for that sublime fine dining experience.
I have to say, I was a little nervous that Kerstin and Tobin would be a wee bit stressed out the day of the wedding given all the effort to transform their house in time for the ceremony. I mean who wouldn’t be right? But they were so relaxed and I think happy that the day had finally come. Kerstin was getting her hair done as I arrived at her now sister-in-law, Teri’s house across the street. Teri, a world renowned hair artist, styled everyone’s hair in her sweet in-home salon. Kerstin, an esthetician, and did her own makeup and the makeup for her twin sisters, which she said is how she relaxes :). The whole day was spectacular and it was awesome to see Kerstin and Tobin so happy and their new life together off to a great start! Congratulations!!!
