Destination Wedding at Acre Resort

Leslie and Jorn’s wedding day at the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, California, was a beautiful celebration of love, simplicity, and family. As a Bay Area wedding photographer, documenting their special day in such a beautiful location was truly an honor.

A Day Full of Love and Laughter

The Ruth Bancroft Garden, with its exquisite array of succulents and drought-tolerant plants, provided a unique and vibrant backdrop for Leslie and Jorn’s wedding. The simplicity of the setting complemented the couple’s fun and easy-going nature, making for a day that was both laid-back and full of love.

A Feast to Remember

A highlight of the day was undoubtedly the delicious food. The couple opted for wood-fired pizza and a plethora of pasta options, making for a meal that was as delightful as it was delectable. It’s personally my favorite type of wedding meal and I suspect many of the guests would agree. The combination of great food, a loving family, and the beauty of the gardens made for a truly memorable experience.

A Sweet Twist on Tradition

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Leslie and Jorn decided to share their favorite dessert with their guests: It’s-Its. This unique touch added a personal and sweet end to the day, reflecting the couple’s personality and ensuring the celebration was uniquely theirs.

Its landscapes and commitment to conservation create a meaningful and beautiful setting for such a special occasion. For Leslie and Jorn, it was the perfect place to celebrate their union surrounded by the beauty of nature and their loved ones.
