Temescal Beach House

Waterfalls

This is what an office romance done right looks like. John and Nicole, who met at work, were married in Oakland at the Temescal Beach House. The Beach House has a beautiful view of Lake Temescal and a pair of waterfalls on the property.

One of my favorite moments at this event was the bouquet toss. The bouquet wasn’t tossed behind the back while BeyoncĂ©’s ‘Single Ladies’ played in the background. Instead, at the tail end of the reception the bride called out the name of one of her friends, who had just enough reaction time to grab the bouquet that the bride had shot to her with a crisp overhand throw.
