Berkeley House Wedding // Sam and Joe

We started the 2012 wedding season with a very lovely house wedding.  Sam and Joe invited us to document their gathering of close family and friends at a wonderful home in the Berkeley Hills.  The ceremony was short and sweet and afterwards we made our way to the couples home in the Diamond District of Oakland. Their home had been transformed into a cozy banquet hall where everyone had a chance to socialize and mingle with one another.  Tasha De Serio and her team prepared a delicious meal right in Sam and Joe's kitchen.  It was such a treat to watch the food being prepared on site.  We enjoy being apart of small, close knit weddings and love how these events are always so full of meaning and sentiment.
