Lush Outdoor Northern California Wedding | Wedgewood Brentwood | Angela & Ken

Last weekend, Joseph and I had the pleasure of flying up to the Bay Area to photograph Angela & Ken’s wedding at the Wedgewood in Brentwood. Typically, we’d just pack up the car and take a nice road trip up the scenic Highway 1 to catch views of the Pacific Ocean, but this time, we opted to fly to make the most of our short stay in Northern California.

The Wedgewood Brentwood is beautiful wedding venue with lots to work with as a photographer. Wildflowers were in bloom and we found a couple of areas that were perfect for the first look and for wedding portraits.

Our day started in the early afternoon photographing wedding details and along with preparation for the both the bride and grooms side. Everyone was getting ready at the same hotel, and that makes it very convenient for us to get plenty of photos while the girls get their hair and make up done and while the boys drink and crack jokes about it not being too late to run.

After a quick drive from the Hilton Concord to the Wedgewood Brentwood, it was time for the groom to get the first look at his bride. We found this little bridge that’s for golf carts that was perfect for some quick portraits.

Same bridge, just a different angle to make use of the flowers.

After all that fun taking bridal party portraits, guests were starting to arrive and it was time to hide the bride and get ready for the start of the wedding ceremony.

Some of the cutest and excited ring bearers we’ve seen. They raced down the aisle like there was a gold medal waiting for the brothers at the end. They were probably also super excited because their mom was part of the wedding party and their dad was the officiant.

It was a beautiful wedding and we were honored to be a part of it. The Bay Area has always treated us so well and has always been welcoming to Southern Californian’s like us. The bonus was seeing so many friends from college at Angela and Ken’s wedding. It definitely felt like we turned back the hands of time about 12 or 13 years with all of those familiar faces there.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the highlight photos from Angela and Ken’s big day in Brentwood and congrats again to the newlyweds!
