Christian and Sherry got married today at the Oakland City Hall. They said their vows with just the two of them and their officiant, deciding to spend the day of their marriage with each other and only each other. Shortly after their ceremony, we headed into the Berkeley hills for a set of UC Berkeley Botanical Garden wedding photos and to capture images of the two of them together in their wedding clothes, on they day they committed to each other forever.
The UC Botanical Garden is one of my favorite places in the East Bay – it’s a lovely garden with plenty of stunning paths and gorgeous greenery. The best part though? These two! They made my job easy.
We started nice and simple, just looking for beautiful spots to make some frame-able images. I’m pretty sure every shot of Sherry and Christian should end up on their wall. Love!
These two were so used to each and so in love and it showed.
These are some of my favorites, with the beautiful, soft pink blooms. So lovely!
Sherry had a beautiful bouquet. Two, actually! She couldn’t make up her mind, so she got both. I loved it! And can we talk about that dress?! A dream!
I love these simple images of these two together. They’ve got a long life of happiness together.
Sherry, you’re stunning!
Christian, you clean up great yourself, too!
Seriously though. I can’t get over this glamour. This babe brought it!
And how about that stunning detail in her dress?! I was swooning. It looked incredible on her and this gown was one of the most unique I’ve seen. Love!
I really love these two images. Not my usual style, this greenhouse, bright blue sky, and simple, green fronds was just shouting out to be photographed. I’m so happy with both of these images.
After we spent time in the gardens, we headed up the hill. There’s a gorgeous parking lot up here with one of the most incredible views of the entire Bay Area that I’ve seen. The entire Bay Area and the lovely blue sky was the absolute perfect backdrop to contrast our pretty green garden images.
Love is sweet.
I seriously can’t get over how dreamy this is. So beautiful, you two!
And there we have it! Thank you so much Sherry and Christian for having me along to celebrate your wedding day with you. I loved photographing you two and I hope these images help you remember and celebrate this day for many many many years to come. Lots of love! xx
