Modern love meets retro-cool in the heart of Oakland

I had an absolute blast being a part of Chris and Nicole’s amazingly cool, amazingly fun retro-themed wedding reception this past weekend. Oakland’s skyline created a perfect backdrop for a gorgeous ceremony officiated by one of Chris’ longtime friends.

The warm night air mixed with home-brewed beer and cider made cocktail hour a perfect way to start toasting the newlyweds. My retro cocktail hour playlist included a mixture of classic Motown and dusty gems from the 70s & 80s. Apparently my song selection hit a chord and a few guests stepped onto the dance floor, testing the waters for later in the evening. Always a good sign when that happens!

The evening ended with a giant group hug encircling Chris and Nicole, literally surrounding them with love. They felt it, I felt it and I’m pretty sure the rest of Oakland did too.

Till next time!
