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.

To be honest, the hardest part about assembling this highlight reel was choosing the right song. Alyssa and family's music taste were a lot more upbeat and hip hop to my taste and plus I didn't think that music style would fit right with the story I was trying to portray. That being said, I hope you enjoy the highlights of Alyssa's Sweet 16 birthday party.
Thank you for letting me be part of your day. Happy Birthday!
