The Mountain Terrace, Woodside
Masha and Seth held their wedding at The Brazilian Room in Berkeley, choosing it for its scenic garden at adjacent Tilded Park, as they are both avid nature lovers and wanted a location nearby their house to make it convenient. Forgoing the classic first look, they started the day shooting wedding party photos at getting them out of the way so that they could joy the cocktail hour with all their friends and family. It was a perfect sunny afternoon, basking them warm, soft light the entire day. After a touching ceremony, we further explored the garden for more couples portraits, where the sunset lighting provided for some awesome images. The toast from Masha's bridesmaids provided some awesome awesome moments, forcing both Masha and Seth to laugh uncontrollably the entire speech. After the reception program, the music started and everyone fully enjoyed themselves on the dance floor, not being stuck on the ground, Masha and Seth were surprised with their friends picking them up in chairs and giving them some nervous laughter while being help up in the air. I love it when guests are either tossed in the air or carried in the air because they always elicit some great reactions.
