Celeste & Mark’s Berkeley Backyard Wedding
Here is a collection of photos from the Berkeley backyard wedding of Celeste and Mark. It was a lovely day full of family, friends, and love.
Getting Ready Before the Berkeley Backyard Wedding
Getting ready for the wedding is always such a special part of every couples wedding day. Mark and Celeste chose classic wedding styles for their intimate backyard wedding. Celeste looked so radiant before the ceremony. We couldn’t get enough of Celeste’s all-white bouquet full of different flowers!
First Look Before the Berkeley Backyard Wedding
Mark and Celeste’s first look before their Berkeley Backyard wedding was incredibly sweet. Our bride and groom to-be were all smiles during their first look and could not have been any sweeter. Our couple was absolutely glowing, even the foggy weather couldn’t dim their joy. We love capturing special moments like this!
Mark and Celeste’s Berkeley backyard wedding ceremony was beautiful. The weather was misty and moody, and the vows were sweet and touching during the intimate ceremony. This lovely outdoor wedding’s misty veil made for some bewitchingly beautiful shots of our wonderful couple. It was an amazing day shared with friends and family.
Mark and Celeste’s couples portraits after their Berkeley backyard wedding were so romantic and stunning. This was such a great session, our couple was a dream to work with. We loved how Mark looked adoringly at Celeste. We had non-stop fog throughout the day, and we loved the cozy, intimate feel it gave. So dreamy!
Berkeley Backyard Wedding Reception
Mark and Celeste’s Berkeley backyard wedding reception was so beautiful, wrapped in a dreamy, mystical fog. Our couple had delicious food from Anaviv Catering and a beautiful wedding cake from Masse’s Pastries. There was dancing, touching speeches, and lots of love shared with friends and family. It was the perfect ending to an even more perfect day.

From the couple: Magical, misty, garden wedding. We wanted to utilize and enhance the already beautiful garden. We had a wedding planner and florist help with this. Natural florals and greenery. My niece sang our first dance song. Simple, clean, classic. Our vows. We met in college. Mark proposed 9 years later. It is the best day ever.

A Love Poem For The Happy Couple:
“I love you for what you are, but I love you yet more for what you are going to be.
I love you not so much for your realities as for your ideals, I pray for your desires that they may be great, rather than for your satisfactions, which may be so hazardously little.
A satisfied flower is one whose petals are about to fall. The most beautiful rose is one hardly more than a bud wherein the pangs and ecstasies of desire are working for a larger and finer growth. Not always shall you be what you are now. You are going forward toward something great. I am on the way with you and therefore I love you.”
