Marlena and Matthews got married on a gorgeous June summer day. They exchanged vows in a gorgeous Oakland sanctuary with aged stained windows and beautiful wooden doors. With their traditional church wedding, came a sanctified holy spirit that rolled through the sanctuary. Bride, groom, and wedding party alike couldn’t resist the chance to raise their hands and thank God for this wonderful union. After exchanging tearful vows and sealing their new life with a kiss, the wedding party met outside to capture some beautiful pictures in front of those special wooden doors.
The reception took place at the gorgeous Scott’s Seafood Bar and Grill on the magical Jack London Square in Oakland. Overlooking the bay, the newlyweds enjoyed their evening with family and friends as they did the bouquet and garter toss, and guest were treated to a fun candy bar. I knew this wedding was extra special as it was accented with my favorite color, pink! After dinner and cake personalities were on the rise as a little wobble wobble was played by the DJ and bride and guest alike hit the dance floor. I hope you enjoy these fun wedding pics. Special thanks to Eric Marshall Photography for letting me partner with him on this beautiful wedding.
