gloria and jesus' 30th wedding anniversary

commentator: monica

assuming gloria & jess' anniversary party would be a minimalistic event of dinner and perhaps dancing, we were quite surprised to see zio fraedo's on the waterfront in vallejo to be decked out in glorious golden hues and pops of green and pinks, thanks to the awesome karen & cheryl of fresh bloom. not only was this the restaurant's second event ever, it was the first wedding party to be hosted at this great venue, with the center of the banquet room arranged to include an aisle for a vow renewal ceremony for gloria & jess' 30th wedding anniversary.

not only was the decor fabulous but so was the food, staff, the lovely couple, their beautiful family & guests, the lively entertainment, and the dancing! seriously, everyone at this party seemed to be trained ballroom dancers. this isn't surprising since one of gloria & jess' hobbies is their involvement in the "wednesday night club," who were very much present during this event. =)

congratulations, gloria & jess! may you enjoy another 30+ years of wedding bliss!!!
