Alyssa & David

Friday, September 16 2011

Alyssa Summey had a good reason for getting married just two days short of the iconic 10/10/10—October 8, instead, was her tenth anniversary with David Kayo, whom she met as a teenager at an art festival right by her future wedding venue.

Indeed, as the wedding coordinator at Seven-Degrees event space for the past five years, the location of her own big day was never a question. Alyssa decided to transform the modern creative space into a romantic yet contemporary setting, with plenty of lush black magic roses and purple calla lilies. The natural beauty took center stage during the ceremony on the terrace, but things turned swanky for the reception inside the media lounge, thanks to rich red lighting, dramatic Manzanita tree centerpieces, and an ice bar and cocktail luge. David’s special touch: a cigar lounge with coffee cart to catch up with his buddies. With plenty of dancing and a late-night bonus of mini grilled cheese and tomato bisque, the celebration lasted well into 10/9/10.
