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 décor 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!
