Christmas Ball Galore

I know that probably all Christmas decor is now all put way but I had to post one more Christmas wedding. I received this lovely email from Amber and Matt and I just had to share.

Hi Darcie! We hope you had a wonderful holiday and that the new year is treating you well so far! We are so sorry for just now getting an email to you!! We have been working on a little "thank you" but haven't had a chance to send that off yet so I at least wanted to write and tell you how pleased we were with our the ceremony/reception turned out! The ballroom looked amazing! You and Tiffany both did a fabulous job bringing all of our ideas to life - every little detail was covered! We are still receiving compliments from friends and family on how wonderful everything turned out. We could have done it without you and especially appreciate all of you help on the wedding day keeping everything on track. The day was everything we could have hoped for and we are so grateful to you for the role you played and making it a truly unforgettable experience! We were sooo thrilled to get the pictures! Everything was absolutely beautiful! - Amber & Matt

I LOVED this design- it was one of my favorites of the year. The funny thing is- this design all came just about a month before the wedding. Amber and Matt's guest count dropped and to fill out the space of the Grand Hall we came with this.
Thanks to everyone that helped make this day a success!!!

New Year's Eve Bang

Ashley and Craig decided to get married on NEW YEAR’S EVE! What a great time of year to tie the knot. It was absolutely a winter wonderland on this day of 2011. As you can imagine, planners tend to work mostly on weekends, nights, and holidays. You would think it would be uncomfortable to bring in the NEW YEAR with strangers, but this crowd was one to make you feel welcomed. Craig and Ashley’s family were so warm and inviting throughout the entire planning process.
It was important for the couple and family to keep things as local as possible. Most of the vendors were from the Noblesville and surrounding cities, I love supporting the locals. It was also crucial that we keep our guests safe throughout the event. Transportation and the coordination were of most importance throughout the evening. We didn’t want our guests to have to worry about transportation.
Ashley and her bridesmaids started the morning off at her parent’s home in Noblesville. Complete with hair and make-up, we had to sneak outside for a few breath-taking pictures by their family lake. With her cute little cape, she weathered the storm as Jordyn from Jennifer Driscoll Photography captured Ashley’s personality. The boys in the meantime, were getting ready at the Cambria Suites in Noblesville. Being a new hotel and suite, we hosted the majority of our guests at this hotel. They were absolutely accommodating and even helped us with transportation to keep our guests safe. The bridal party arrived at the Christ Luthern Church in Noblesville as the guests began to fill the pews. On this romantic, high spirited day the couple tied the knot with their closest family and friends. In between the ceremony and reception, the guests were allowed to go back to their hotel to freshen up for the evening’s festivities. The couple took at trip with the photographer and videographer, Jake from Vibe Video Productions to downtown Noblesville to capture shots as a newlywed couple. The reception at the Purgatory Golf Course in Noblesville was ready to greet the guests to begin the party. The couple greeted their guests as the warm, inviting winter wonderland welcomed them. The room was filled with sparkle, lighting, and warm sounds provided by Jason. The cake, by Classic Cakes in Carmel, adorned the room with festive d├ęcor to compliment the evenings’ theme. As the guests entered the room next to the cozy fireplace, they were amazed of the atmosphere. As the food stations were opened, the guests sipped on champagne bringing in the new year. Closer to midnight, we passed out party favors, hats, and noise makers as the LIVE stream of NYC ball drop aired. Counting down, 4-3-2-1 the guests raised their glass to congratulate the couple. Needless to say, Ashley and Craig had a ball as we danced the night away. Happy LIFE to the newlyweds as they bring in their NEW life and NEW YEAR together!
