Berkeley Botanical Garden Conference Center Wedding
I am so so excited to share Chris and Amy’s Berkeley Botanical Garden conference center wedding with you today! These two are SO CUTE and their wedding in the redwoods and the garden was a total dream. These two started early and gave themselves a super relaxed morning, plenty of time for photos in the garden and with their friends and family, and then some time to chill before their redwoods ceremony. Their ceremony in the redwoods was magical (how can it not be surrounded by those magical giants and all the humans who love you?!?!) and then they stayed behind for a few minutes to just soak in that newly married feeling. Instead of heading right to their cocktail hour, these two had drinks and snacks all to themselves in the garden as the sun went down. No photos (we did plenty earlier, just like they wanted to!), no guests, just some bubbly and their favorite human and a minute to breathe on their wedding day. I loved it so much: Talk about chill vibes. From there, they headed in to a delicious dinner, sweet toasts from their closest friends and family, and the best first dance on the deck to head off a night of celebration. Happy happy!!
