The Best of Berkeley

The groom said he was pulling rice out of his pockets all night.

Liz and Miles wedding day began by getting ready at The Claremont Hotel and Spa. They took a limo ride over to Northbrae Community Church for their ceremony and exited to an aggressive scattering of rice. Their reception at the Brazilian Room included some festive cocktails, games, sparklers and perhaps most excitingly, some late night tater tots.

The Claremont is a fairy tale castle.
