Alyssa and Nick wedding weekend: ceremony and cocktails at Grace


Are you enjoying following Alyssa and Nick throughout the various parts of their wedding weekend? We hope so! Next was their emotional ceremony in the lower level of Grace Restaurant in Portland.

As Alyssa and Nick hid separately during the minutes leading up to their ceremony, guests arrived via trolley and settled in, soaking in the relaxing ambience of this historic renovated church. Surrounded by 100 of their closest family and friends, Nick and Alyssa shared heartfelt vows they wrote themselves, and spoke about their pasts while pledging their devotion to one another, leaving barely a dry eye in the place (myself included!). Both of their moms performed readings before Nick and Alyssa exchanged rings and made it official with a smooch! Then they were off to their cocktail hour on the upper level to celebrate before boarding trolleys to the reception.
