So excited to share this Wedgewood wedding in Brentwood CA on my blog today. On July 16, 2022 we got to celebrate Stephanie and Aaron’s love in two beautiful places; their ceremony at the The Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, CA and reception at the Brentwood Rise by Wedgewood in Brentwood, California.
It’s not often that your family member gets to sing your first dance song, but one did and it truly made it extra special! They slow danced to the song “I Swear” by All-4-One which immediately made my jaw drop and brought tears to my eyes the moment I heard their family member sing that first line. Not only was their wedding on the same date as my parents wedding (28 years ago) but they danced to the same first dance song as well! How wild is that?!
After a few more speeches, some special dances, and cake, Stephanie and Aaron did a quick outfit change and we headed outside for some more golden hour portraits as a now married couple. We ended the night doing a rose petal send off with a handful of their favorite people.
Stephanie and Aaron, thank you for allowing me to be apart of your love story. From your Lake Merritt engagement shoot (who knew there was a lake in the middle of Oakland?!) to your perfect wedding day, I’m so happy I got to share these special days with you both. Your family and friends were so kind and fun to hangout with. Getting to witness your entire group of loved ones chant “KISS KISS KISS” multiple times throughout the night was so amazing. I wish you both the absolute best and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
