New Year's Eve Wedding filled with Cocktails and Confetti

Happy New Year's Eve. I have such a treat for you today. The wedding I'm showcasing took place exactly a year ago today - what a special night for Crystal and Jason. Happy Anniversary to the happy couple! Crystal wrote to me and said her and Jason were focused less on having the perfect wedding {I LOVE this} and more on throwing a truly amazing celebration. They chose New Year's Eve as their wedding date as they knew their guests would "relish the idea of a dual reason to revel". Happy Wedding. Happy New Year.

The evening was filled with love, laughter, dinner, dancing, cocktails and confetti - all the best things for any wedding. And, their 7 year old son was their ring bearer who got to announce "You may kiss the Bride!". ---> Be sure to scroll down to see all the gorgeous photos and read Crystal's best wedding advice.

And, lastly - here is Crystal's Best Wedding Advice . . . Choose the right Vendors. Vendors you connect with! They are there to make the event run smoothly from beginning to end and top to bottom.  I've been know to be control freak, but in this case, we paid a little extra for extremely talented people - and more to the point, for piece of mind.  It was worth every single penny.  Also, remember that this is yours to do your way.  Make it look and feel like you and your Groom.  The guests will notice it, feel it... and love it!
