i’ve been waiting to share amy & tom’s new year’s eve wedding at the mission inn resort since january, and i figured sharing it on new year’s eve this year would be perfect! these two are the most relaxed couple & so much fun to be around, and it was a fantastic way to ring in the new year!
amy diy-ed her bouquet & tom’s boutonniere using fabric from her mother’s wedding dress (the lace on her dress is from her mother’s dress as well). there were plenty of disco balls & clocks throughout amy & tom’s wedding details, including several vintage watch faces in amy’s bouquet (and you all know the mickey mouse one is my favorite, of course!). amy also had some of the lace from her mother’s wedding dress made into the larger bangle she wore!
after detail shots it was time for the first look & portraits!
amy had to show off her wedding day fluevogs (both halves of the couple are shoe connoisseurs – tom was wearing fluevogs, too).
tom’s boutonniere also had a mickey mouse watch face to match amy’s bouquet.
told you they were shoe connoisseurs!
before the ceremony, we grabbed a few quick shots with their parents’ wedding day photos!
be warned – if you are a guest at one of my weddings and your dress matches the decor, you may be used as a prop for detail shots! especially if you’re wearing sequins that match the decor.
while amy & tom mingled with their guests and enjoyed their cocktail hour (thanks, first look!), we grabbed some reception detail shots or all of the glittery goodness!
amy diy-ed their card box – a globe that she tiled with blue & gold tiles for extra sparkle! there were vintage new years postcards hanging over the sweetheart table, and the favors were mini bottle of champagne (perfect for any wedding, really, but especially new year’s eve).
they also had the most fabulous dessert buffet full of mini pies!
after dinner it was time for the mini pie cutting! so cute.
if you thought people partied hard at weddings, just imagine a new year’s eve wedding! everyone was on the dance floor all night long.
it’s my kind of wedding when there’s a surprise delivery of grilled cheese to refuel everyone halfway through the night!
it’s also my kind of wedding when the bride performs an impromptu rendition of the lonely island’s ‘i’m on a boat’…
