Whimsical Garden Wedding

Dave and Erin had a whimsical ceremony in the middle of the redwood forest at UC Berkeley's botanical garden. The ceremony was followed by a ballroom reception at Bancroft Hotel in Berkely and was filled with gorgeous DIY details from the graphic designer and House of Blues creative director bride! Glamour met romance when the bride's dress was created just for her by renowned designer, Tadashi Shoji. Erin fell in love with one of their sexy, plunging neckline gowns, but they only made it in color. The designer decided to make the dress in white for Erin and loved it so much, they added it to their wedding collection. From the invitations embossed with wood grain to tie in the ceremony forest element, glitter-gold books and pink florals as centerpieces, no detail was over looked by this crafty bride. She made gold elephant name holders and stenciled her new "F" monogram on one of her cakes to add some flair and personality to the overall design aesthetic. The vintage charm of the boutique Bancroft Hotel was the perfect setting for this sweet wedding. Fall in love with this beautiful wedding below and be sure to Pin your favorite photos!
