Temescal Brewing Wedding
This gorgeous Temescal Brewing wedding was SO MUCH FUN and such a dream to photograph. These two are the sweetest and it was such a joy to help them celebrate their wedding day in style. They had their ceremony in the redwoods, with lots of sunshine, gorgeous trees, and a small cocktail hour reception right after the ceremony. They skipped a first look and instead had a two and a half hour cocktail hour (!!!) which allowed them plenty of time to do portraits in the redwoods AND go to their cocktail hour and enjoy it. From there, they headed to Temescal Brewing for the second half of their cocktail hour where everybody enjoyed drinks and tons of fresh, local oysters (they were SO GOOD) before a first dance, buffet style paella dinner, relaxed seating, and a super fun dance party into the night. Temescal Brewing was an excellent spot to host their event and the good beer paired with redwoods, oysters, a lovely sunset, and a killer dance floor made for an unforgettable night.
