Stephanie and Michael’s Berkeley City Club wedding, over the course of the pandemic, transformed from a swanky hotel wedding to a micro-winery wedding. We started off at the historic hotel to fulfill Stephanie and Michael’s deep love of art, architecture, and Julia Morgan (I mean, HELLO! Have you see the Berkeley City Club POOL! *le sigh*).
After their intimate first look, we drove to the family’s private estate in East Bay area, where their micro-winery is tucked away in the golden hills. Surrounded by lush trees, and their closest friend, these two smiled their biggest smiles at each other while they exchanged vows.
Stephanie and Michael march to the beat of their own drum, and as such, instead of having a formal wedding party, they opted to get ready with their closest friends. Less stuffy, more fun for everyone.
They share their first dance just as the moon rose, dancing to the retro stylings of the Cosmo Alleycats. We snuck away to do golden hour photos in the vineyard vines…and just like that, S + M were MARRIED!!! xo
