Diandra + Scott: 6.2.18 | A Hotel Shattuck Plaza Wedding | Downtown Berkeley, California

Before meeting each other, both Diandra and Scott weren’t quite sure if marriage was for them.  Life was focused on furthering studies, starting businesses and traveling the world.  Neither could really picture what kind of partner would fit into their plan.  But then one day, on different dating sites, they messaged each other.  That’s right:  on the VERY SAME DAY that Diandra contacted Scott on match.com, Scott reached out to Diandra on OkCupid!  Taking that as an OBVIOUS sign, they decided to meet up in downtown Berkeley at Angeline’s Louisiana Kitchen for their first date, where they immediately hit it off.  They talked about their hobbies.  They talked about their life goals.  They talked about their moral views.  All of a sudden, their unknown future began to materialize, and it quickly became obvious that this was no ordinary first date, but the foundation of a harmonious, budding relationship.  It wasn’t long before life found them back at Angeline’s, only this time, for a proposal.  Staying true to the egalitarian nature of their relationship, Diandra + Scott chose to forego the traditional proposal, and instead, proposed to one another.   Afterwards began the plans for their June 2018 wedding, just around the corner at the uber cool Hotel Shattuck Plaza, yet again rooting their love story in downtown Berkeley.  And while they continue to further their education (Diandra received her PhD from UC Berkeley just weeks before their wedding day!) start businesses and travel the world, they now have the perfect partner by their side as they embark on new ventures. One of my favorites? Together as a couple, they’ve taken up martial arts, both earning their purple belts!  I’m so happy I got to be a part of their beautiful Berkeley love story and can’t wait to see what their future brings in this new chapter of life!  Congrats, newlyweds!Hotel-Shattuck-Downtown-Berkeley-Wedding-Photographer_1000.jpg
