We could not be happier to share our first wedding of the year with you today. Chris and Kelly had their ceremony and reception at the gorgeous Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento this past Saturday. There is something unique about our first wedding of the year. We had spent the winter with our son and spent the spring being inspired by the world around us. With so much new in our lives we saw how unique this day was for these two as the became a family of two. Rich with family and friends these two stepped into the world a married couple and had the biggest smiles on their faces. We will never forget the moment right after these two were married. They had their first kiss and walked hand in hand to the elevator. With their bridal party in tow, the all hopped quickly into the awaiting lift. Two floors went by and Steve, the best man, decided it was too hot with that many people and got off on floor five. The doors quickly closed to allow the elevator to quickly finish it’s decent. Quickly is not what happened next. The elevator suddenly stopped and the mirrors fogged with the hot air of fourteen adults and a four year old. There was so much panic as we were able to get ahold of the hotel quickly to attempt to get everyone out. After 10 minutes the elevator opened it’s door a fourteen big sighs occurred. I think everyone still had a smile on their faces after water and alcohol was quickly consumed!
January 5th was a beautiful day, as winter was most certainly in the air. Allison and Anthony were both preparing for such an amazing day. It was a day that started with football (soccer), a bit of sun poking through the clouds, and a super sweet first look over looking all of Sacramento. Even luckier — rain started sprinkling just as their ceremony began. Some may think rain on a wedding day is a bad thing, since they were getting married by candlelight under protection of the gorgeous terrace at The Citizen Hotel it was not an issue. In fact rain is said to be good luck! We could not be more excited to share with you a few pictures of Allison and Anthony.
I leave you with this last image. We could not have been happier that Allison and Anthony were thrilled to brave the chilly air atop their balcony for one last photo of the night. Congratulations again, we wish you both the best!
