Venue Spotlight: Brazilian Room

Brazilian Room in Berkeley

If you have followed our blog for a while, then you would know that one of our new favorite local venues is the Brazilian Room in Berkeley. We always love photographing at the Brazilian Room, and one of our favorite weddings from last year; the wedding of Megan + Stephen. Megan and Stephen’s engagement session is one of our favorites, and these two had their classic wedding at at this gorgeous Berkeley venue. They had so many great photographs from their day there not only because the Brazilian Room is a great venue for photographs but also because they allowed ample time for photographs before the reception and after the ceremony.

From Here Comes the Guide: “Once part of the 1939 Golden Gate Exposition on Treasure Island, the Brazilian Room was presented as a gift to the East Bay Regional Park District by the country of Brazil. The original interior hardwood paneling was kept intact, while a new exterior of local rock and timber was constructed by the Works Project Administration to permanently house the room…

Wedding ceremonies are extremely popular on the flagstone patio, with its dramatic panorama of sloping lawn and tree-studded hillsides. After toasting the newlyweds, guests can sip their champagne among the colorful mix of lavendar, foxglove, breath of heaven, and other flowers that make up the small garden adjoining the patio, or sample hors d’oeuvres under the cherry tree, abloom in April with perfumey-pink blossoms.”

Lauren and Victor used the ample lawn space outside the Brazilian Room to set up outdoor games for their guests. Bocce ball and table tennis were definitely the hits of the reception!

From Here Comes the Guide:

“The setting at the Brazilian Room is just as lovely indoors as out. The building’s Old English-style façade is defined by a trio of leaded-glass doors, each with dormer-style threshold. When guests move inside for the reception, they’ll find that floor-to-ceiling leaded-glass windows that run along both sides of the hall. The rear windows offer a close-up look at the forest, evoking the romance of a light-filled mountain cabin. Dark wooden beams create a novel pattern on the ceiling, and polished wood flooring and a huge stone fireplace give the space additional rustic charm.

The serene pastoral surroundings at the Brazilian Room offer an environment free from noise and distraction, where nature’s gifts are honored and preserved and the modern world is in harmony with the building’s heritage. It’s a place you’ll want to make part of your own family tradition.”

We can’t wait to see more gorgeous weddings at this location! If you’re thinking of having your event here, we’d love to capture your moment!
