Wedding!

Over Labor Day weekend we had a whirlwind trip out to Berkeley for John and Clarissa's wedding. It was held at the Berkeley City Club, another beautiful Julia Morgan building. It was an intimate, personal ceremony and we were glad we got to be there to see it. Aside from that, we played hard, we ate well, and we fell apart before the dancing began! Here is more of the occasion in pictures:
bride and groom with nieces and nephews
reading an e.e. cummings poem during the ceremony
Shumway siblings
McFarlands were here
oooh! nice eyebrow! Joss banged it into the door of the rental car that afternoon and it would not stop bleeding.
the cousins snuck off for some pictures in the courtyard
flower girls dance with the bride
parents of the groom give a toast
during Clarissa's mother Barbara's toast
Sebastian talking to Grandpa
Each table was themed with a spot from Manhattan
Milkshakes used for toasts (John's friend Will said the next morning: "So it really is true -- you can have fun without drinking!")
Karen, Maddie and Rosemary
