This Woodsy Wedding Is Stunning — but It's the Bride's Gown That Will Take Your Breath Away

Alex met Danny at her first job out of college, where they instantly became friends. Fast forward to their wedding day, and the two looked gorgeous standing in the Redwood Grove at UC Berkeley's Botanical Garden. Friends and family witnessed their union while seated in the amphitheater, surrounded by towering redwoods. Although the ceremony location itself was breathtaking, it was the bride who stole the show in her stunning long-sleeved gown, which was the perfect touch of romantic and sexy.

Their wedding planner, Naseem, brought to life the couple's vision of having a woodsy wedding filled with burgundy, blush, and white. Touches of gold were added to the reception decor at the Julia Morgan (Berkeley City Club), which blended vintage and intimate beautifully. "I loved how simple yet so elegant everything was!" Alex told POPSUGAR. The venue space offered guests plenty of room to mingle from the terrace to the dance floor into the night. "It was the best day ever, and we wish we could relive every moment!" Alex said.

See their beautiful photos!
