Hello all! While I have photographed many Berkeley Church weddings over the years, this is my first Berkeley Fieldhouse wedding and I absolutely adore it!
Joanne & Ari actually had a really cool idea for their getting ready location: Air BNB! They rented an awesome condo that had some amazing lighting featuring Edison bulbs (totally took advantage of that for the photo below of the wedding dress), and gorgeous daylight. I love the idea of renting an Air BNB place for extremely unique getting ready photos. Also adding to the awesomeness was Joanne’s gift to her bridesmaids – t-shirts with lines from the movie Mean Girls (i.e. ‘Is butter a carb?’)
The first look took place at Berkeley Field House, followed by romantic portraits in the Berkeley Field House treehouse (seriously how cool is a wedding venue that has an actual treehouse?!)
The ceremony was beautiful and emotional, with cocktails on the patio outside and a lovely reception just a few steps away inside. Joanne & Ari’s tiny dog Ella was all dolled up and acted as their ring bearer!
I managed to sneak away with the Bride & Groom for some night time photos under the tent outside the Berkeley Field House, and I think those are my favourite photos of the whole day. You can just see the love between them. Just…wow.
Congratulations Joanne & Ari on your marriage! I am so thrilled I was asked to capture these moments for you.
