The bride on her special day:

When my best friend suggested a New Year’s Eve wedding for Anthony and I at her rehearsal dinner, I initially laughed it off. But the more I thought about it, the more it began to seem like the perfect time of the year for our wedding. There are certain things about New Year’s Eve that we truly love – getting dressed up, drinking champagne, toasting to the end of a year and a new beginning – so what better way to start our lives together than being surrounded by our closest friends and family on such a special holiday? I also love the idea that each year, no matter how we choose to celebrate our anniversary – whether it's sipping bubbly and nibbling on Christmas leftovers at home on the couch, it will undoubtedly be special and romantic. 

During my first planning session with Andria (of Andria Lewis Events), I immediately overloaded her with inspirational images and various color palettes, which mostly included lighter and deeper shades of gray, silver and lavender. My mom and I had already talked about all of the fun details. Once we decided on a venue, Andria jumped into planning mode. For a day that was forecast for torrential rain, our wedding day was absolutely perfect. There had never been a time when we had been surrounded by all of our favorite people in one place, and it was an honor for Anthony and I to share our love and commitment to each other in their presence. With the help of Andria and Lesley Frascogna of TULIP Design Studio, the reception venue was transformed into a space perfect for an all-out New Year’s Eve party brimming with gorgeous table scapes, the prettiest florals, ultra-luxe details with just the right amount of sparkle, and a midnight celebration and countdown led by a fabulous live band, Will Graves & Soul. And what’s a NYE party without tons of confetti?
