This woman of God loves the Lord. Nicole has been such an inspiration to me over the years in ways that she doesn't know. Although most of our friendships have been spent in distance, I was watching her from afar: growing in the Lord since being in same small group in High School at Calvary Chapel Modesto, throughout the beginnings of my college group years, and now in the moments before she gets to say "I Do" to her best friend.
Videography is slowly becoming an essential piece of special/any kind of event, more so than photography. With video, you can see yourself, remember the small details, but also take in the remembrance of the larger picture. Sounds, emotions, performances, expressions and experiences are all enraptured in a video. Whether that be in a short highlight video or short length film, videos can be replayed over and over again until your heart's content.
Alyssa was the bell of the ball...stunning, beautiful, and full of laughter and life. Surrounded by family and friends, Alyssa and her party witnessed the moment where she was declared a woman in the sight of her parents by giving her high heels and even a brand new car! The celebration was held at Windmill Ridge Winery in Tracy, CA in their backyard area, while the nighttime dancing and performance was inside at the entrance of the building. With fabulous appetizers, dinner, and music, Alyssa received all the love and attention one could hope for on their birthday. She is truly blessed.
Smiles and laughter were the highlights of this event. Maid of Honor Vanessa hosted a beautiful bridal shower for the bride Erynn with food, games, and presents. Memories of how we met Erynn were shared amongst the ladies as we all tried not to say the words "wedding" or "ring," otherwise, our fake rings can be taken by the person who caught the other person saying the word(s). I ended up winning with 6 rings! There was much exciting in anticipating for Erynn and Zach's wedding next month. I look forward to being a witness in their union!
