Lisa and Eric live and work in Washington D.C., however Lisa was raised in Piedmont and really wanted to have their wedding in the city where she grew up. I met her at her parent's house (which was absolutely gorgeous!) where she was getting ready. The house was full of old photographs of Lisa and her brothers which made me realize how important pictures are to her family. It made me feel so special to be able to be taking the photographs of her on her wedding day.
The ceremony was held at the beautiful Piedmont Community Hall. It's such a perfect place to hold a wedding! Big trees, easy to walk trails and the there is a reception hall within walking distance from the ceremony with a kitchen and everything! It's so convenient, especially for bigger groups.
Anyhow, back to the bride and groom! Lisa and Eric are an awesome couple. They are so laid back and fun and definitely not afraid to speak their mind. While taking their pictures at the Berkeley Marina, there were tons of crazy kites flying around and they were quick to say that they had to have a couple photos with the kites!
The reception hall was beautiful, with wood beams and chandeliers decorating the ceiling. There is also a huge windows on the wall which lets in so much natural light! The food, catered by Royal Raspberry, was delicious! Their team was so friendly and helpful as well.
Congratulations Lisa and Eric!
It's so sweet that Lisa's dad was able to walk to her out of their own home.
Lisa really wanted to take pictures at the Berkeley Marina because of how much the bay played a part in her childhood.
Have you ever seen a giant dog kite before? We had to take a picture with it!
Lisa used to climb up here when she was a little girl!
