Sept 6, 2021, what a special day. For those who came out to the Brazilian room in Berkeley to celebrate B&D, I’d say there is a big chance that you shed a tear at least once. You know what, even if you were on ZOOM, I bet you shed a tear as well. It was so beautiful to witness all of those intimate moments on this day.
B&D have been in the making for 14 years!!! They originally met in Spanish class of High school – how many high school sweet hearts do you know of?! This sweet couple lasted through college (and yes, it was long distance), graduate school for D, and now they both own a home as doggie parents to 95lb Murphy!
How I met this couple, well funny you ask, B and I actually both went to UCLA together, but we didn’t know each other then. In fact, it was actually my husband who introduced me to D. D and my husband work together at a Physical Therapy clinic. (what a great hubby, sending me referrals :P). After our first consultation, they warmed my heart by saying they’d love for me to be there on their special day.
The Brazilian Berkeley Room is a part of the East Bay Regional Park District and is actually quite an affordable wedding venue in the Bay area. It is in the high hills of Berkeley area, which gives you gorgeous views of the trees during your ceremony. The drive up is a bit windy, but it includes a gorgeous city scape view.
B&D, congratulations on officially tying the knot after 2 years of postponement and thank you again for trusting me to document your special day. Cheers to a lifelong and happy marriage!
