What is better than getting married in the trees? This adorable couple, Sheila and Ian made all the right moves and had the most epic wedding ceremony at the Redwood Amphitheater in Berkeley. The two were witnessed by friends and family in a magical forest setting whilst the majestic redwoods surrounded them as they said their I do’s. Thanks to Mandy Scott and her outstanding skills in design and planning the reception didn’t fall short of perfection.

After the ceremony, the guests gathered for cocktails and dinner at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley.  Finally, the couple wowed with their snazzy vintage Rolls Royce, sweeping everyone into an old Hollywood movie from the 1920’s. Not a single detail was overlooked, from the ice sculpture, to the tiered cupcake tower, it was a night to remember indeed.
