I wrote about Alysse and Cody’s beautiful San Francisco engagement session a couple months back. That was a wonderful day so I knew that their wedding was going to be just gorgeous and it was. I met Alysse in Sausalito as she got ready with her mom, sisters and her best friends. Tara Brooks did a fabulous job with Alysse’s makeup and the room was alive with the joy and laughter of the bridesmaids getting ready. We drove across the Golden Gate Bridge and out to Sutro Heights Park. I’ve blogged about the beauty of Sutro Heights Park so I was really excited about the wedding. It was a beautiful, if windy day and Cody and the crew did a great job of setting up the chairs and decorations. They were planning for a short wedding but had a ton of family photos so we decided to do all the photographs ahead of time. That plan worked out great. They saw each other for first time along a nice wooded path and we played around the Sutro Heights Gazebo. After a series of family shots we all went up to the buttress for drinks and cocktails. Loved this schedule because it allowed everyone to relax and really enjoy the day. At some point, the guests took their seats and the ceremony began. Alysse was nothing but big smiles and she and her friends did a “Friends Forever” cheer just before she walked down the aisle. I have to say, more then anything else, friendship was so present on that day. They both clearly had strong friendships with many, many people and that made the day a perfect celebration.
Congrats Alysse and Cody – good luck in your new life together and thanks for letting me be apart of your special day.
