Mills College Chapel and Orinda Country Club Wedding, Oakland CA | Gary & Kelley

Mills College Chapel and Orinda Country Club Wedding

When Kelley came across our published work in a San Francisco wedding magazine she did not realize that we were not local to the Bay Area.  We immediately hit it off with the bride to be, and she and her fiance Gary decided to have us travel to their Oakland Wedding!  After photographing their engagement session in San Diego (the couple came out for a little weekend getaway) we started counting down the days til the wedding.  The couple’s positive/encouraging energy got us super excited, and as expected the wedding day proved to be inspirational as we watched the way this couple interacted with each other and their guests.  The email Kelley wrote us after viewing their wedding photos for the first time still gives us goosebumps!

All we can say is “my God, God bless you, and thank you, thank you, thank you”!  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!  I didn’t see the photo on FB until today so I am so sorry for the delayed response.  Thank you so much for the slideshow, the photos are beyond anything I imagined—my heart was racing as I watched the slideshow.  Gary has not seen them yet—I just sent them to him—can’t wait for him to see them, he is going to be beside himself.  Yasmine and DeShun, you have captured our wedding so beautifully but most of all, you captured our love for each other—and that is what is most important to us.  Thank you so much, you have captured memories that we will cherish and be able to share with so many for a lifetime.  I felt like I was looking at someone else’s wedding in a magazine but it happens to be our wedding.  Yasmine and Deshun, I pray another event happens in our lives that we are able to work with the both of you again (we won’t be having any babies but if we were you would absolutely be the photographers Lol).  Thank you again for everything—we love and appreciate you!  Blessings!  

Below are a few photos from their Oakland Wedding starting with the first look at Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa with ceremony at Mills College Chapel and reception following at Orinda Country Club.  The photograph of Kelley walking down the aisle with and emotional Gary in the background is probably one of our favorite photos from the day!
