2015 have proven to be one of the most creative wedding year for us. Our amazing clients are becoming more and more creative with their choice of venues, food, and dessert. We are so happy that Josh and Jenna chose us to document their special day. It was our first time shooting at the Fairyland. I felt like a kid all over again.
All I have to say about this wedding is that, "It is very Oakland". As a native Oakland resident, I can spot an Oakland person from a mile away when I am traveling, we carry a very distinct persona. Oakland is not so much a big city life kind of city but more of a community. A community that consist of people from all different kind of backgrounds but can come together to have good time. That is exactly the vibe I got from Josh and Jenna's wedding. It was beautiful.
Guests were treated to a nice private picnic in the park. The couple treated their guests well with a taco truck, pizza truck, and gangsta cookies (I kid you not! The faces of hip hop legends in different flavors. Brilliant! ) There were activities for everyone, adults and children alike. DIY photobooth, henna, and a nice little hill for kids to slide down on a cardboard with.
The ceremony site was super cute!! It was a little town with buildings and benches, very original. The couple stood on a balcony while their guests sat ground level to observe the exchange of vows. There was also a young singer who gave an amazing performance. The speeches were hilarious especially from Jenna's father. You can see Josh and Jenna's reaction in the photos below.
Let's talk about their first dance! Aww man!! How sexy were they?!! Josh was dancing as if it was his second nature and Jenna's sexy moves totally gave J LO a run for her money! lol It was very cute to see these two lovebirds bust a move. Might I mention that Josh and Jenna are the owners of Sugar Knife Artisan Sweets. So for dessert, s'mores were prepared on the spot for their guests. I had to try at least 2 different kinds and it was amazing. The line spoke for itself.
Josh and Jenna, we would like to wish you two a lifetime filled with love, surprises, and amazing success.
