Jenny and Brennan’s Berkeley Botanical Garden wedding was my DREAM. Take two good humans, full of happiness and love and kindness, mix them with their favorite people, celebrate their love in among redwood giants full of history and magic and good light… there is nothing there besides a winning combination. Truly a magical weekend celebrating these two, who met against the odds of a world full of many humans, and who are so loved by everybody who knows them.
They got ready in a big house in the hills, spent the morning with their friends. They opted for no official first look, but their faces when they saw each other for the first time in their wedding outfits will forever be my favorite: full of love and excitement and joy.
They headed to the garden together: We did some fun and simple portraits in the greenery, then had time with their friends and family for some sweet portraits full of emotion with all of their closest people. So many of their friends and family came from out of the country and it was truly a once in a lifetime experience to have them all in one place together at the same time.
There was a ceremony in the redwoods: Jenny and Brennan headed in to the redwood grove and their ceremony arm-in-arm together and it was wonderful. A sweet ceremony followed by a laughter filled first dance on the deck and some tearful (and joyful) toasts in two languages.
Their evening was relaxed: Everybody sat for dinner and then sat and sat and sat and talked and laughed and enjoyed each other’s company. There was a cake cutting (sweet) and a happy birthday (for the bride and Brennan’s aunt!) and there was friendship and love and conversation late late in to the night.
Forever will let this Berkeley Botanical Garden wedding live on in my heart. XO
