This gorgeous Bay Area wedding comes to us from Cindi Stephan of Two Irises, based in San Francisco, California! Here’s Cindi to tell us more:
The romance began in 2008, when Joshua was stationed in Japan with the U.S. Navy and attended a friend’s barbecue and met Yuka – it was love at first sight! He proposed in March of 2012 during a romantic evening filled with candles and wine.
See more after the cut!
The couple wanted to have an intimate wedding that was both close to Josh’s family in California and at a venue completely different than what they can experience in Japan. Yuka and Joshua had their first look at The Claremont and enjoyed their magical wedding at The Brazilian Room in Tilden Regional Park, Berkeley, California.
Yuka looked absolutely gorgeous in her romantic lace sweetheart wedding gown and romantic updo with fresh flower details. Josh looked just as handsome in his formal black tuxedo and bowtie.
Yuka’s three bridesmaids wore matching floor-length blush gowns. As Josh has a love for cars, Yuka surprised him with a classic cream Rolls Royce once owned by the famous Desi Arnaz from the show, “I Love Lucy!”
They rode together to the ceremony where their closest family and friends awaited them and a violinist played breathtaking music. After the ceremony, the couple and their guests celebrated with a beautiful sit-down dinner and a delectable gourmet meal.
Long white tables adorned with fresh rosemary and flowers, along with personalized mint boxes awaited each guest at their table.The entire day was filled with gorgeous details and an unmistakable love – it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of their special day.
Congratulations Yuka & Joshua and thank you Cindi for sharing! For more information about Two Irises, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile
