Friday’s Resort and McCloud Mercantile Wedding |California Wedding Photographer

McCloud is a gem of Northern California. This small town tucked away in the shadow of Mount Shasta is a blast from the past – with a picturesque downtown area of small businesses centered around the gorgeous McCloud Mercantile.

Carli and Paul’s wedding was a beautiful hybrid between two locations – Friday’s RV Resort for their gorgeous ceremony with a perfect view of Mount Shasta, and McCloud Mercantile for their lively and fun reception that was so full of love.

One of our favorite parts of the reception was the DJ – the one and only Rudi Bega – who spun VINYL. Not a playlist, not a CD or tapes, but good old fashioned Vinyl. Don’t get us wrong – we have a lot of DJ’s we LOVE who don’t spin vinyl – but we (especially Crist) love the experience of listening to, playing, and dancing with vinyl. Rudi did an incredible job of mixing the tracks and brought a fun loving, laid back, and engaging vibe to the entertainment of the night. You can reach out to him here.

Both Friday’s RV Resort and the Mercantile provided excellent space for the events of the day. One of our favorite parts of the McCloud Mercantile is that since the building is also a hotel, guests and wedding party were able to stay right on site – so after all the reception fun, everyone was just steps away from their room for the evening.

All in all, it was a fantastic day, filled with beautiful people, tons of love, and so many great memories!
