Event planner Jacqueline + project manager Casey had a pretty clear vision for “I do”: intimate, rustic, elegant, and definitely outdoors. They landed on UC Berkley’s Redwood Grove Amphitheater + and knew it was the spot. Jacqueline tells us, The redwood trees not only provided a beautiful backdrop, but made it feel private and romantic. We had always wanted an intimate and small wedding surrounded by our closest friends and family, and the redwood grove provided just that.

Thanks to Danielle Poff Photography sharing these photos.

From the bride… The most memorable moment from our wedding was our vows. We had decided to write our own personal vows and to our surprise, they were almost identical to each other. We were not only moved by each other’s words, but had all of our family and guests too. You could really feel the love we had for one another. It’s a moment that I will play over and over in my head and treasure forever.

Jacqueline’s dad made this wood backdrop + chalkboard easels. To make sure the overall vibe was romantic and elegant, they opted for rustic elements in the ceremony + chic décor for the reception. Take a peek at Jacqueline’s Pinterest board for more inspo.

Jacqueline says, The gown is a dramatic composition of lace and a striking trumpet silhouette with slight pleating at the skirt. The fabric used was a lace appliqué and English net. The fabric was a champagne color with an ivory lace on top.
