Redwood Regional Park wedding in Oakland

Shadia & Chris eloped back over the summer with a small ceremony out of town. They still wanted to have a fun wedding to celebrate with all their friends and family. They had a beautiful reception inside the redwood forest in Oakland, California. Shadia and Chris decided to surprise their guests with three full size llamas! Guests took photos with them and even walked them around the forest. It was such a awesome experience to photograph. They ate and drank till the sunset. I ended the day shooting some golden hour portraits with just the two of them. The whole day was so beautiful! I loved that they just hungout with their guests all day and were able to just celebrate without the stress of a wedding day.
