Kelsey + Karl: An Intimate Dockside Wedding

We couldn’t wait to be a part of this relaxed, lakeside wedding at the Temescal Beach House in Oakland, CA. Kelsey Robinson is the Kelsey of The Whole Cake, who makes the most delicious desserts and cakes we’ve ever tasted. We knew this baking diva would put a lot of her own personality into this intimate event. With only 70 guests gathered by the water, Kelsey and Karl said their “I Do’s” and partied far into the night.

The backdrop for the day was the beautiful Temescal lake and it’s lush surrounding hills. silhouette makeup photos Kelsey’s friend did her hair and makeup while the bridesmaids relaxed and nibbled on snacks.
