There’s something about travel and the experiences of meeting new people from different backgrounds that opens your heart, mind, and soul. When Betsey went to France, I don’t know that she expected to find the love of her life. But that’s exactly what happened. And it was nothing short of magical. But with the warmth and infectious smile that flows so easily from Betsey, it was easy to see how Alex fell for her. And Alex, he is as charming and handsome and he is open and warm (which is saying a lot as the serious French man that he is!). The two of them together was pure magic.
Seriously, what an incredible wedding and family! So many of the guests traveled from France for the wedding and many only spoke French. But the language barrier between the families was never an issue. The love they had for Betsey and Alex and their openness and excitement over the union was tangible. It was not something I could easily describe. It was more like something you could feel, pure love surrounding them and lifting them up as they became man and wife.
Their Firehouse wedding was perfection and a marvelous blend of both American and European traditions. They shared their vows during a traditional church wedding with a reception serving the best food and wine at The Firehouse restaurant in downtown Sacramento. They had a gorgeous cake and, of course, cheese plates for dessert (my kind of party!). The atmosphere was so full of life and excitement for Alex and Betsey’s future together paced at a relaxed French speed.
This wedding was truly such an amazing experience! I couldn’t be happier for such a fantastic couple and family, and can’t imagine two more deserving people of such love. They were such a joy to work with, and I wish them nothing but the best on their adventure of life together as husband and wife!
