Jen and Jimmy’s Wedding

We’ve been looking forward to Jen and Jimmy’s wedding for quite a while now. A beautiful venue in the middle of the forest + a super cool relaxed couple in love = the recipe for a perfect wedding!

It all started at the super fun Hotel Durant, which had lamps in a shape of smoking pipes – so Berkeley :). The preparations were a ton of fun with Mike covering the guys (fun times folding handkerchiefs, then happily drinking beer) while I was doing my best to keep with the girls running from one room to another getting ready and trying not to forget anything :)

I absolutely loved Jen’s bouquet – so simple and beautiful!

These guys had the best possible light for their ceremony – the sun just went behind the tall trees of Tilden Park. The ceremony was one of the most emotional ones I’ve ever witnessed – Jen and Jimmy were laughing and crying without being afraid to break some traditional rules of proper ceremonies. This made the ceremony so personal, so them, that all the guests (as well as both photographers) were laughing and crying with them:

It became dark shortly after the ceremony and most of the portraits, family pictures, and bride and groom shots had to be taken in pretty much complete darkness. It didn’t prevent anybody from having fun, however :)

One thing that I didn’t mention yet is that besides it being pitch black it got to be really, really cold! And cold as I was wearing my down jacket by the time of the portraits, Jen was a real trooper in her strapless dress and didn’t even complain once!

Jen’s sister made an awesome toast and I love all the emotion in this picture:
