Tilden Park - Brazilian Room Wedding // San Francisco Bay Area Photographer // Matt + Kayla

Bride and Groom Portraits in the Redwoods, Berkeley Wedding

These smiles! AHHHHH! These cuties had the sweetest Thursday evening wedding that kicked off my 2018 season in the best way possible! Their energy + constant ear to ear grins are contagious! We started the day with their first look in a small Redwood Grove in Tilden Park. 

The Brazilian Room in the Berkeley Hills was the perfect setting for a laid-back celebration with sixty of their closest family + friends surrounding them. One of their dear friends, Nick, made their marriage official + they spent all of cocktail hour with their loved ones, mingling + playing lawn games.

As guests were invited for dinner we snuck away for a few sunset portraits. I loved the spontinaity of their reception - quite a few additional unplanned, yet genuine + sweet speeches from friends, their surprise choreographed first dance, Kayla's grandmother with a surprise Yodeling performance, and singing happy birthday to Kayla's dad made for a truly special evening.
