The Couple: Alissa & Steve
Wedding Date: November 22, 2014
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: I am from the Bay Area, Steve is from Ireland. We met while living and working abroad in Japan. We got engaged while we were there, and decided to move back to California. Our wedding was an amazing meeting of friends and family from all points of our lives. We had 8 different countries represented at our wedding
What was the most amazing part of your day? The reception in the Estate Wine Cave. Sitting at our sweetheart table, I was able to look out at the entire party, and was overcome with emotion. Almost every person we cared about, at every point in our lives, were together in room for a few short hours. It was a surreal moment to have friends/family from so many different countries together to celebrate us!
What else would you like to share about your big day? It was raining all morning, and we thought we were going to have to move the ceremony indoors. However, about 3 hours before it started, the rain magically stopped and the sun came out just in time.
