Christine and Jim’s Pajama Party Wedding – Berkeley, CA

This has got to be a first. The theme for Christine and Jim’s wedding, which I recently photographed at The Brazil Room in Berkeley, was “Saturday Morning”. The wedding incorporated all the things that the bride and groom like to do when they spend a relaxing Saturday around the house, such as:

  • Crossword puzzles
  • Eating breakfast
  • Drinking coffee
  • Listening to NPR
  • And of course, wearing PJs all day

When they told me about their wedding plans, I had to ask, “Wait, you really want me to wear pajamas to your wedding?” They practically insisted. This was one of the most unique, fun, and relaxed weddings I’ve ever participated in. A few of my favorite details:

  • The program for the wedding day was printed in the form of a newspaper, complete with crossword puzzle. The clues were all about the bride and groom.
  • Breakfast buffet, and pastries instead of wedding cake
  • A live recreation of “Wait, Wait! Don’t Tell Me!” the NPR news quiz
  • Coffee/tea themed table decorations
  • At the end of the wedding, the couple rode off on a decorated tandem bike (not sure what this has to do with the theme, but it’s awesome.)
