Chicago and Berkeley Wedding : Ali and Becca

Hello there, blog followers! Today, I’ll be sharing some photos from Ali and Becca’s same-sex wedding celebration. I adored these two, and I was so excited to be able to work together at both their ceremony in Berkeley, California, as well as their reception at The Illuminating Company’s Room 21 in Chicago. To help the blog post flow a little better, I’ve moved the getting-ready photos from our Chicago reception among the Berkeley getting-ready photos. Let’s get started with their ceremony in California!

The ceremony was among the redwood trees in Berkeley. After a gloomy morning, the sun started poking through minutes before the ceremony started!

After a few portraits in Lincoln Park, it was time for the party at Room 21. Dustin from Style Matters made sure that the dance floor was packed all night long.
