The Couple: Patricia and Daniel Anderson
Wedding Date: September 10, 2011, which was exactly four years since we started dating.
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We were both born and raised in Grass Valley. We met at the Nevada County Fair through mutual friends. We went on a few dates and have been inseparable ever since. We enjoy spending time outside, having BBQs, going to the movies or just cuddling up on the couch.
What was the most amazing part of your day? The whole day was amazing, but seeing all of our great family and friends cutting a rug on the dance floor was very memorable.
What else would you like to share about your big day? It was just as we had pictured and we had a blast. After the big day, a lot of our friends and family told us that our wedding was one of the most fun weddings they had ever attended.

Any other of your wedding vendor(s) you’d like to call out? No vendors per se, but to our wonderful families for helping setting up our wedding, e.g. tables, chairs, centerpieces. As well as cleaning up afterward, so we didn’t have to worry about it.
First Dance Song: “You & Me” by Lifehouse
