Ceremony and Reception: Brownstone Gardens
Olivia and Abe are such a fun couple that contacted me to photograph their wedding which took place at Brownstone Gardens in Oakley, California. It was my first time photographing at this venue and I really loved how lush and beautiful the surroundings were.
They first met in dance class where they partnered on a dance routine, and from there their relationship grew. Years later they decided to tie the knot at what turned out to be an exciting celebration.
From their ring bearing dog, to the surprise song that Olivia sang to Abe during the ceremony, there were many things that took place which made this wedding unique.
Talk about a first dance, these two put on a performance that no one in attendance will ever forget. First the guys put on a hilarious parody dance, then the girls gave a Beyoncé worthy performance that brought down the house! Not to be outdone, these newly weds lit up the floor with leaps, dips, twists and turns. Seriously, it was like something from Dancing with the Stars!
"My husband and I loved having Remo photograph both our engagement shoot as well as our wedding. He was very easy to work with, and made us feel comfortable from the first meeting. The day that we originally planned the engagement shoot, we had to reschedule due to rain, but he was very flexible and worked with us until we could find a day. When the day came, we didn't experience rain, but it was super windy! Remo did a great job working through the weather and stayed positive the entire time. When the wedding day came, I was definitely grateful for his calm and collected attitude. He took amazing pictures, and captured so many perfect moments. We would highly recommend him."
