As a San Francisco Wedding Photographer, there are so many great locations to do engagements and weddings. We have the most beautiful city in the world, wine country, the coast and so much more. And speaking of so much more, I’ve recently discovered a real gem in Berkeley – The Hotel Shattuck Plaza.
Please enjoy this brief animated slideshow from the day.
We were treated so well by the Shattuck staff. I highly recommend checking them out!
The presidential suite at the Shattuck is so awesome! It has a large bedroom with french doors opening to a private balcony with incredible views and a large bathroom with lots of natural light.
The suite also has a very large living space plus a huge dining/meeting table. A great place for the bridesmaids to hang out on the wedding day. This side of the suite has its own entrance which is quite grande. I loved it so much that I shot a series of images there that make use of the clasic styling of the tile and pillars.
The gowns featured in this shoot were designed by Amy-Jo Tatum Bridal Couture in San Anselmo, California. Her gorgeous, timeless designs are a perfect match for the Shattuck interiors.
The ballroom of the Shattuck is so cool with its arched, mirrored walls. This give a lot of dimension to the space and makes the most of the modern lighting accents provided by DJ Jason Mitchell. This room was also a fantastic canvas for Tamiko at All Thing Simple who created the lovely sweetheart table and king’s table.
I was fortunate enough to have StyleByLana do the hair for this project. She is as good as they come and has never let me down. My makeup artist was Tracy Shelor from Los Gatos. Her work speaks for itself – impeccable.
I’d like to thank my entire team for making this experience and these lovely images possible. I look forward to creating more art with you again soon.
If you’re a bride and you’d like to have images like these from your wedding day, please reach out to Jim Vetter Photography today. We’d love to hear from you!
