Jessica and Stephen got married a couple weeks back, getting ready at The Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, and then we moved over to the UC Berkeley Faculty Club for the ceremony and reception.
The Claremont, looking as stately as ever:
Fun with mirrors and great window light during the getting ready:
We set up a “first sight” moment which I always love due to the range of emotions I get to capture.
I thought this was hilarious! Stephen checking out Jessica in her fab gown while she models for him:
I was digging the Fall colors in the background for the portraits:
The smallest of the flowergirls was a bit hesitant to go down the aisle when her turn came up. Mom encouraged her at the other side, and she made a break for it! The crowd went wild, cameras in tow:
I lucked out, with someone leaving this door open during the ceremony:
Married! The bubbles were fun:
I always love the birdcage veils:
The rings with some of the rustic details:
I liked this little look during the toasts:
A joyful first dance:
Some action on the dance floor:
