Special wedding offer

Are you in the process of deciding what your big day will be?  Consider Fall or Winter 2016 and enjoy a special offer (and peek at these stunning images for a little inspiration!)

One of the great things to savor are the shorter days, which lets you up the ante on the romance factor and take advantage of great lighting. Want to see what we mean?  Read on.

Our market lights strung on the Terrace give so much warmth.

 Then, the architectural details get to shine in a big way.

Couples enjoy a moment to themselves and the natural light gets a chance to really show off.

See what we mean?  Beautiful, indeed.  Now for the fun part.

We would love to wish a sincere thank you to Nicole Blumberg Photography, Danny Dong Photography and Kelly at Wild Whim Photography for the stunning images throughout.

Love in the details

Some of the special things that take a wedding up a notch are in the details.

We love unique things that make a statement while still carrying on a timeless, elegant feel.

We invite you to draw inspiration and ideas from these images or to just enjoy the eye candy!

Little lovebirds and flowers.  Symbols of their love…

Your guests mouths begin to water before even entering the Ballroom as they smell the amazing food from the Kitchen nearby.

There is something about this display of macaroons that just draws you to them.

Perhaps the beautiful pastel colors or having a sneaking suspicion they will be “melt in your mouth” good.  Either way, I am going to savor one.  Only one.

I just love knowing the story behind their choice for macaroons – and even explained eloquently for all of their guests.

A “Wedding Wish Vase” – such a lovely idea.

A bit about lovebirds.  We wish this couple a lifetime of happiness and a lovebird sighting!

a concept photo shoot

The Berkeley City Club has long been a place to celebrate beautiful things over its 84 years of existence.  People of all ages seem to fall in love with our grand architecture, lush courtyards and flowing floor plan.  It is often described as this “hidden gem”  that seems to inspire so many with each visit into its grandeur.

This July, a concept photo shoot was done at the Club and the results were stunning.

“What is a concept photo shoot?”

Concept shoots allow photographers to showcase what they would like to capture, as well as show clients their specific style.

Concept shoots, in turn, allow the client to draw inspiration for their wedding, event, party or fabulous soiree!
