Shudida Johnson and Shaun Robbins (pictured at right) were married at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 1 at Miner’s Foundry in Nevada City. The Rev. Charles Grande officiated.
Special guests included Thelma Lee of Mississippi, the bride’s grandmother, the groom’s uncle, Pat Robbins of Concord, and the groom’s grandmother, Bernice Melby of Grass Valley.
The Miner’s Foundry was decorated with candles and autumn colors with an emphasis on the color “wine,” which was the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses. The bride wore ivory/champagne and held a bouquet of assorted chrysanthemums and sweetheart burgundy roses. To enhance the autumn theme, the wedding cake’s top layer was decorated to resemble a pumpkin.
The Miner’s Foundry was decorated beautifully by Maria Prudhont, an aspiring event planner. Flowers were furnished by Foothill Flowers, music by Jamal Walker of My Way Productions, catering by Apex Catering, the “pumpkin shaped” cake was made by The Cake Artist and the photography was a joint effort by Chris Hersey and Chris Harada.
Petting Zoo (the percussion trash band) rocked the hall with a couple of their popular sets and Jamal Walker sung a heart-felt a cappella rendition of “A Song for You” just for the bride and groom.
The maid of honor was Gretchen Robbins of Roseville, sister of the groom. The bridesmaids were Angela Ware of Antelope, Coralyn Wilson of Hawaii and Latoya Bowen of Sacramento.
The best man was Travis Chittock of Idaho. The groomsmen were Jack Walker of the Bay Area, Adam Litke of Rocklin, Eric Wilde of Rocklin, and Kyle Horn of Vallejo. The junior groomsman was the bride’s brother, S.J. Connor of Atlanta.
