Friends and family gathered for Sherry and Bob Nicols’ fifth-year anniversary party at the elegant 1100 Room in the City Club at River Ranch. Renowned musician Tony Lucca came all the way from Los Angeles to play for the pair. Friends Donna and Bob Sanders trekked from Dallas to share in the festivities. The cooing couple proudly introduced their handsome sons, Dillon Gallet, Cullen Gallet and Geoff Nicols, to the crowd. It was truly a special and unforgettable way to celebrate their wedded bliss during Valentine’s weekend.
