Alyssa and Nick wedding weekend: reception


After sipping on some of Grace Restaurant's legendary cocktails like Holier Than Thou and Redemption, everyone took the trolleys to the Holiday Inn by the Bay for dinner and dancing in the ballroom. Purple uplighting, fabric draping and a jaw-dropping dessert bar helped transform the space into a romantic setting for the evening. We loved watching this enthusiastic crew cut loose on the dance floor and enjoy the photo booth.

The end of the night was quite bittersweet. We wrapped up our coverage in shifts; I headed out first to put my tired pregnant feet up at home. Saying good-bye to Alyssa and Nick, their moms and wedding party was incredibly emotional for each one of us (again, more tears). It was an amazing journey, definitely a highlight of the year, and we are so proud to have been a part of it. Love you to bits, Alyssa and Nick, and cannot wait until we have the chance to see you again!
