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!

The wedding was May 4th, 2013 in Morgan Hill but it felt like we stepped into a time portal to the 1930s. Such an amazing reception from beginning till the very end!
