I Do Venues: The Berkeley City Club Details and Stolen Moments

Photography by: First Comes Love


I can't think of a wedding venue in the East Bay that embraces the elements of a vintage design more graciously than the Berkeley City Club. Julia Morgan's architectural style is unparalleled. The building itself is a step back in time as you witness every elegantly appointed detail. Alison Bank of First Comes Love has done a remarkable job of helping the happy couple capture unique 1920's photography.
With a building as spectacular as this, you'll have an endless supply of photo opportunities. There are architectural elements throughout that provide the perfect photo backdrop... stairways, windows, arches, and doorways galore. As you stroll through the corridors, libraries, and common rooms - the mood is set by the authentic use of antique furniture, tapestries, and original oil paintings.
The most amazing part of the building is its rich history and the story behind it. You can't help but get lost in history. What a wonderful way to begin your life together - adding another chapter to the building's rich heritage.

I Do Venues wants to recognize the talented team of wedding professionals who helped to make this bride's dream a reality: Photographer - First Comes Love, Designer / Coordinator - Wendy Wittmann of Wittmann Weddings & Events, Cake - Black China Bakery, Venue & Catering - Berkeley City Club.
