Mariana & Jonah Jurss | Wedding at the Snow Building | Oakland Zoo

Northern California Wedding Photographer | Rubidia C Photography

Mariana and Jonah got married back in August at the the beautiful Snow Building, which is part of the Oakland Zoo Wedding Venues up in the hills!
Such a amazing venue with such an airy space with amazing views of the bay area! On a clear day like that day, you could see San Francisco with no problem!

It’s always such an honor to photograph a couple’s most important day, but this wedding in particular was special to me as Mariana and I went to the same high school years ago!
After many many years, we met again at a wedding to which I was the main photographer…the rest was history. I got hired to be her own photographer on her most beautiful day!

She’s such a relaxed, chilled kind of a girl, my kind of client! She looked beautiful in her gown! A delight to photograph.

Here are some of the images that stood out to me the most…enjoy such beautiful affair!

The day started at her high top of the building Oakland hotel room.  As with any wedding, the atmosphere was lovely, everyone in high spirits anxious for the day to start.

This had to be one of the sweetest moments between mother and daughter. In our hispanic culture, a mom’s blessing is golden!!
