I feel so fortunate to be able to have days where my work life and personal life collide in such a significant moment as a wedding day. I’ve known Pat for about 10 years and personally knowing so many of the guests at this wedding made it even more fun to photograph than usual.
They had a beautiful ceremony in a brilliantly simple, yet elegant space at the Terrace Room over looking Lake Merritt in Oakland. The space was used for the ceremony first, then transformed into a reception hall for the evening festivities. The night was filled with spectacular dance performances by the bride and groom, their parents and, eventually, inebriated friends (I can say that because they’re my friends, too). Anyway, on to the images!
