Old Hollywood Glam and an over the top dance party at this Oakland Winter Wedding.

From the moment I met Shannon, I knew her wedding would be stylish and unique. Shannon and Will got married at the Sequoyah Country Club in the Oakland Hills. A bay area couple, this was the perfect, local backdrop to their old Hollywood glamour style. Shannon wore a vintage dress she found at Happy Isles Salon in Los Angeles and had it tailored by TailorMaid SF. She had her hair and makeup was done by Salt Spell Beauty which wrapped her old Hollywood look together flawlessly. Will wore Klein Epstein Parker suit with Gucci loafers. It was a rainy winter day so the whole wedding ceremony and reception were hosted indoors in the gorgeous historic Sequoyah dining hall. 

The couple kept their ceremony simple and danced the night away to the incredible Primo Pitino. Emily from Heart Throb Weddings took care of every last detail and the wedding was a perfect celebration.

The wedding day can go by in a flash. Sometimes it’s nice to slow down and take some solo photographs before the big day. Bridal portraits are wonderful for several reasons. You can give yourself a chance to get more comfortable with your photographer, and with being in front of a camera. It will give you a chance to create a different vibe and get more gorgeous photos of you in your dress you so thoughtfully picked out for your wedding. And lastly you can use the occasion to do your hair and makeup trials and see if you like the way everything photographs. And lastly because they are fun.


Shannon and I met up a few weeks before her wedding and did a simple bridal portrait shoot in OMA studios located in Oakland. She had found this wedding dress at a thrift store but ended up deciding to wear a different one for her wedding day. She still loved this dress and wanted some photographs of her in this one as well.
