I got to shoot this amazing wedding alongside the sweetest photographer, Carly Jean. Every single session booked with her goes towards an amazing global organization of your choice—another reason why she is the sweetest soul so definitely check her out!
Bethany and Joe chose the Berkeley Country Club as their scenic backdrop for their wedding day. The day began by getting ready in the cutest little room full of window light. Bethany watched a video that Joe made for her that brought her to tears. Then her maids helped her get into her gown and finish up the last few details.
The ceremony space felt intimate and cozy tucked in right next to a patch of cypress trees but also had full panoramic views of the bay giving the space a definite wow factor. Before heading down to meet their guests, Bethany and Joe shared a first look and danced together to their own music as they anticipated the moments to come.
The whole crowd rose to their feet as they walked down. They promised each other forever with the most beautiful words, lit a unity candled, and had their first kiss and husband and wife.
The reception space was equally lovely with everything in keeping with their theme. They shared toasts and speeches, danced along friends and family, snuck away for some sunset shots (always a must!), and ended the night with a spectacular sparkler exit.
Definitely a night to remember and one they’ll never forget.
