From Lisa Stone Photography – “This shoot at the Berkeley City Club was nothing short of incredible. Romance was definitely in the air as we captured each aspect of a real wedding. We included everything from getting ready with bridesmaids to the getaway in a vintage car! Because we chose a recently engaged couple to model as our Bride and Groom, each moment was even more romantic, natural, and organic.”
From Lisa Stone Photography – “Our concept was derived from the late architect, Julia Morgan, who’s timeless legacy led us to the Berkeley City Club where we combined rich architecture with a beautiful garden setting. Initially created in the 1920’s to be a club for women, this extraordinary venue has become a center for social events in the East Bay, as well as a part of the rich California history.
Inspiration for the color palette was drawn from the F/W 2016 bridal collections. The deeply rich Marsala tones combined with soft subtle rosy hues aided in setting the mood. The beautiful sequin linens and gold-rimmed glassware were nice touches to add a bit of glamour and grace. The Magnolia Jazz Band helped set the mood and made shooting the reception and cocktail hour more natural and entertaining.
Our designer, Denise of d.Royal Engagements, pulled together a very talented team of industry professionals who were strategic in every last detail of this shoot. From the handmade gowns and custom invitations, to the elegantly crafted floral design and opulent table setting, we aimed to create a mood that evoked a wealth of passion and tenderness.”
