UC Berkeley Sweethearts Tie The Knot in Iconic SF Locale

Mark and Christie met as undergraduates at UC Berkeley, live in Cow Hollow, and showcased their love for the Bay Area with a SF-centric wedding last year. 

Their nuptials featured soft purple and pink colors and lots of colorful lighting including a large Christmas tree in the James Leary Flood Mansion. The bride looked beautiful in a lace gown by Jin Wang with sparkling bow-shaped earrings. The groom and his party looked dapper in their suits - with engraved flasks secretly stashed in every man's pocket. The couple made sure to snap shots at all of the city's most iconic locales. 

A Google bus whisked the bridal party to the reception, which featured a white-themed candy bar as well as a classic wedding cake. As the night went on, Larry Lynch and the Mob brought the house down and the newlyweds danced the night away before heading off on their island honeymoon to Bora Bora.
