We started “formal” portraits at Palm Event Center, Pleasanton, but that doesn’t mean the fun had stopped.

The Palm Event Center in the Vineyard, located in Pleasanton, CA, is one of the premiere venues in the East Bay. We love the lush arches for the ceremony, conveniently located just outside the dining reception area.

The row on of palm trees that are signature to the Palm Event Center had a direct line of site to Rubino Estates Winery. We were able to take advantage of the luscious vines for our portrait session. I just love the fun relationship Karen and Jeff have. There was not a shortage of laughter and funny faces.

The Palm Event Center reception was large enough to host a large guest list and also allowed room for creative wedding ideas like a dessert table and even a ramen bar! WHAT!?
