Chris and Tina’s wedding at the Brazilian Room in Berkeley

Chris had proposed to Tina while they were in Yosemite on a camping trip.  He asked her to marry him at Glazer Point.  After being together for 5 years, she said yes and they decided to tie the knot two weeks ago on October 29th.  Each of the tables at the Brazillian Room were marked with the names of the different places they’ve hiked at.  Ornate little pumpkins  marked the guest’s names and their assigned table.

I arrived in Berkeley to find everyone busy getting ready for the ceremony.

The ceremony was quite beautiful with the sun casting a warm glow on everyone who witnessed it.

Their son Grant participated in the sand ceremony.  It’s a ceremony where Chris, Tina, and Grant pour sand into a jar with the idea that their marriage, like the grains of sand, once combined, would be impossible to separate.

Everyone rushed in to congratulate the couple after the ceremony.  There were lots of heartfelt emotions.  Chris and Tine celebrated their marriage with a very joyful group of people!

As the guest began to come inside for the reception, we took a few minutes to take a few portraits of the newlyweds.

Tina took a opportunity to relax a bit before the couple made their grand entrance.

The evening continued on with beautiful toasts made by both Dads, Chris’s brother, and Tina’s sister.

Later in the evening, Tina changed into her Korean Hanbok and visited her guests at each table.

The it was time for the party to begin!

Please support this blog by commenting and subscribing. I love reading feedback and I'm sure the the newlyweds would love to see your comments too! If you have any questions please don''t hesitate to post them or send me an email. I'm always interested to hear what you think! Thanks for your support. Ten years ago, I left the mortgage and real estate business to pursue photography, which is a passion of mine. The mortgage business was excellent at that time but I was tired of it. I had a daughter that was just born and I wanted to do something that would allow me to spend more time with her and at the same time do what I wanted. I knew that I enjoyed people photography and soon discovered that I have a very real and special talent for it. I discovered that I was particularly good at capturing moments and revealing emotions through pictures. This came instinctively for me and allowed me to develop a style that was very comfortable for me to work in. My photography quickly became popular in the bay area and I've earned a large number of referral businesses as a result. In fact, i'd say I most of my business growth is the result of referrals from clients and online sites like Yelp. I currently have a studio in downtown San Jose and photograph weddings and portraits all over the bay area and California.
