There is just something about this little wedding. It’s a little bit dark, a little bit moody, in that totally romantic and glowy way.  I am COMPLETELY captivated by its beauty. The sweet, ethereal vibe is just so gorgeous and the images by 39 East Photography…umm, beyond. Oh but the fun doesn’t stop here.

When John and Kellie were looking for a wedding venue, they knew they wanted a venue which was close to the water because they had met while on the inter collegiate rowing circuit. They also wanted a venue which was in the bay area as they wanted to share their love for the area with their friends and family, many of whom were from out of town. This when the couple came across the Angel Island state park, they knew it was the venue for them. The big plus was the fees to host a wedding there were extremely reasonable as well.

The bride Kellie also love doing crafts and month before the wedding began going about gathering and putting together all the little details for her wedding. Guests were given wedding favors of rosemary salt in  small antique bottles personally baked by the couple. Table numbers for guests were soaked in tea to give an aged appearance and tied to an antique keys sourced from all over the world.

The flowers at the wedding were based on the spring flowers in northern California.  Together with the lanterns, the couple wanted a nostalgic, garden theme to their wedding.
