Who: Kristy and Greg
When: February 15, 2020
Where: Chabot Space and Science Center. Oakland, California.
Kristy and Greg's wedding at the Chabot Space and Science Center was simply out of this world! There, I said it and now you can't unread that beautiful bit of wordsmithery. Seriously though, these two were so much fun and we loved every little detail of their day!
Greg's wedding ring was made from meteorite and glowed in the dark; the bridal party enjoyed the comfort of custom galaxy-themed Tom's shoes; the reception tables were arranged by constellations; during the wedding ceremony, the planetarium projector displayed a real-time star map of the sky above our atmosphere.
Our florist, Jesus, created a stunning bridal bouquet, tying in their colors with blue thistle that beautifully complimenting Kristy's sapphire earrings. The custom trim on her wedding dress was the final piece to make the details picture perfect.
Guests enjoyed a full planetarium show sweeping through the Universe immediately following Kristy and Greg's first kiss as husband and wife. Run on sentence? Maybe. An incredible experience witnessing the majesty of space beyond the stars? Absolutely.
One of our favorite things about Bay Area Weddings is the incredible number of creative options available for those looking at non-traditional wedding venues. The Chabot Space and Science Center is beautifully nestled in a redwood grove with incredible photographic potential. Look at how beautiful their first look is with deep greens contrasting slate grey concrete. That's not to mention the gorgeous reception venue ceiling! After the couple's first dance as husband and wife, guests were able to enjoy three different telescopes from the observatory deck. It was an incredible experience, and the best way to celebrate Kristy and Greg's wedding day.
