Several years ago we photographed Adam and Sarah’s New Year’s Eve wedding at the Waverley Golf Club. I can say with no reservations, that I’ve never seen a wedding where the couple, family and friends had more fun than this night. Guests arrived around 8 pm for a sweet ceremony in the round. From there, the festivities gathered speed. Cocktails, a swing band, the biggest cake I’ve ever seen. And the evening’s surprises went on: a Sinatra impersonator, a trumpet player in a chicken suit, a fire dancer. When the clock struck 12, there were kisses and hugs for everyone.
Sarah and Adam’s wedding is a fun reminder that every wedding needn’t take place on a Saturday afternoon at 4pm. There are so many good ways to combine your wedding with an existing holiday. A fireside ceremony on Christmas Eve? Maybe post Easter Brunch? Putting together a wedding that incorporates a holiday might be just the way to make your wedding different and provide you with a whole set of new options.
Happy New Year from the both of us to all our clients and our friends.
And a warm shout-out to Adam and Sarah. Happy Anniversary!
