Wedding at the Camron-Stanford House

This one was as close to home as they come! Marko and Nicole had their wedding at the Camron-Stanford House in downtown Oakland over looking Lake Merritt. The couple was a referral from a friend of Chris' and it turns out Christian’s kids and Nicole's kids go to the same school!

The Camron-Stanford House, in our opinion, is one of the best outdoor wedding venues in Oakland. It’s a beautiful 19th century mansion situated on the shores of Lake Merritt with lakeside views to boot. Wedding ceremonies take place outside on the lawn overlooking the lake and come reception time guests enjoy the romantic lights and the sunset glow of the Oakland hills. The best part, we think, is that weddings at this historic gem help preserve the mansion for years to come. What better way to truly appreciate our awesome town and celebrate a piece of history.

Marko and Nicole’s wedding was a beautiful day with friends and family, good food, and lots of dancing. We really loved being part of their special day and we wish this great Oakland couple all the best.
