Our wedding day was a blast. Period. It was everything we wanted it to be: meaningful, relaxing and a killer party!
Here are some of the many, many photos from our big day.
We wanted our wedding day style to reflect us: a little bit fancy, and a whole lotta fun!
We took our wedding photos around Oakland (the old Parkway Theater, Lee’s Garden and the Leviathan building) to reflect our love for our city & the vibe of our whole big day!
I am SO glad we saw each other before the ceremony & even had time to hang out with friends – it made the whole shebang way more relaxing for me.
We wrote & directed our whole ceremony. The whole thing was very special, but especially honoring some of our friends (we didn’t have a bridal party) & hearing my dad share some wisdom.
Okay, here’s a little secret: we had our guests go to a cheese & coffee hour (so nice to have friends who work at Blue Bottle!) at the church while we ESCAPED. We snuck out the back of the church & jetted over to the reception site, so we could greet the guests as they came in. Plus, it gave me a few minutes to catch my breath & adjust – this made ALL the difference throughout the rest of the evening.
Our goal for the reception? A BANGIN’ party (on a budget). I think we succeeded.
This venue was such a score – seriously! How gorgeous is it?
Our guests loved our photobooth – they got to take home their prints as a souvenir!
My big splurge for the wedding was the DJ. We knew we wanted a bonkers dance party, and boy oh boy, did he deliver!
That’s my mom & aunt teaching everyone the “Gangnam Style” dance. Definitely one of the best moments of the night.
What an unforgettable day! Not only did my life change forever as R&S became official, but that was the greatest party I’ve ever thrown.
And now, at long last, a shout-out to ALL my incredible vendors!!!
Let’s do it again for our 10-year anniversary!!!
