May + Reilly: 6.9.18 | A University of California Botanical Garden at Berkeley Wedding | Berkeley, California

Since May + Reilly are both accountants, I’ve decided to give you some of their details in numbers:  1, as in they met on their first day of work together.  10, representing the decade they’ve already spent as a couple.  9, the day in June chosen as their wedding date.  70, the number of guests that attended their intimate Berkeley wedding.  34, how many acres of beautiful botanical gardens we had available to explore.  3 magnificently distinct areas of the garden chosen as their stunning portrait backdrops (where else can you take your wedding photos surrounded by redwoods, a rose garden AND the desert?!)  And of course, there were 2 very happy newlyweds!  May + Reilly designed their wedding day as both a celebration of their loving, playful relationship and a joyful, festive gathering of their nearest and dearest.  This purposeful planning showed itself in so many ways – from the setting itself, on campus at the University of California (both May + Reilly are Berkeley grads) to their focus on family and friends (not only do they both come from wonderful families, their INSANELY gorgeous ceremony in the Redwood Grove was officiated by Reilly’s longtime friend, Andrew,) to their heartfelt personal vows (filled with reflections of their love, a few well-placed jokes and an abundance of happy tears.)  Later that evening, May + Reilly joined their guests for a cozy family style meal in the Julia Morgan Ballroom.  After everyone raised their glasses to the happy couple, we finished out the evening with cake, dancing, and mini Pop-Tarts under the stars.  From start to finish, it was truly the perfect day to celebrate this special couple and their unquantifiable love.  Many thanks to the fabulous Amy Sedan of Hitch Perfect for connecting us – each and every time we work together is such a pleasure!  Cheers to May + Reilly!UC-Botanical-Garden-Berkeley-Wedding-Photographer_1000.jpg
