Glam New Years Inspiration

Wedding Design

New Year’s might be a few months off, but we feel it’s never too soon to start poring over beautiful inspiration images full of sequins, glitter, and pizazz. So when we saw this shoot from the team of Lisa Mallory Photography, Lindsey Marie Events, and Flowers by Kim, we knew it would be worth sharing early. Do you love the sparkly bridesmaid dresses as much as we do?

From the designer, Lindsey of Lindsey Marie Events: Hello 2015! I don’t know what could be better than to ring in the New Year with a wedding. For this New Year’s Eve inspiration shoot, I wanted to shy away from the traditional black and gold to show that metallics with a pop of emerald green and orchid can be just as fancy! I definitely did not want to break the tradition of sequins, confetti, and champs, as New Year’s just wouldn’t be the same without some sparkle and bubbles! So romantic to see confetti falling from the sky as the bride and groom toast to new beginnings. So in Love!

Living in wine country, I thought it was only appropriate to host our shoot at Broken Earth Winery since New Year’s is all about the bubbly and some delicious wine! I was so lucky to have the ever so talented Lisa Mallory Photography to bring my vision to life. I had so much fun at Unlimited Events creating the most dreamy table scape. Rosey Calligraphy added to that by creating some astounding paper goods. The invitations were so fun and definitely got the party started. Cake Cathedral continued our sparkle theme with a 3 tiered sequin cake. Flowers by Kim made over the top cascading bouquets, which showed that even in winter Pantone orchid with a pale pink can be in style.

How gorgeous do the bride and bridesmaids look! Their glamourous looks could not have been done without the amazingly talented makeup artist Carrie Marie Artistry and stylish updos from Amy Castaniero. Top that off with a rhinestone bridal gown and mismatched sequin bridesmaid dresses make them truly steal the show! I had such an amazing time with this shoot and a BIG thank you to everyone that participated! Cheers to a New Year and New Beginnings. Happy 2015!

Black and Gold New Year’s Eve

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Nancy Ebert

If there’s anything New Year’s Eve has become synonymous with over the years, it’s one heck of a party. This shoot, photographed by Nancy Ebert and dressed to the nines by OhSoPretty Party Boutique, is just that – a clean and modern wedding inspiration session with heaps of glitter, confetti, and balloons. 2014 here we come!

From the photographer, Nancy Ebert: I teamed up with some of my favorite wedding vendors from Germany to create a “black & gold” themed styled shoot. The idea behind it was to create a clean and elegant look for a modern couple in a more industrial-like setting. The shooting was in late November with New Year’s Eve 2014 just around the corner, so we included a little celebration in it and just had tons of fun.

From the idea to the actual photoshoot it took us no more than two weeks – including our search for models. We were looking for a non-professional but deeply-in-love-couple. So we called for all followers of my facebook page to send in applications. The only requirement for applicants was to have a total crush on each other and some spare time on the date of the planned shoot. Within the same day we had about 50 applications from so many wonderful people. We actually received so many beautiful applications that it was hard to pick just one couple. But I believe with Corinna and Dennis we chose the perfect couple. They were on fire and did an awesome job without any modeling experience whatsoever. So in the end we had just a blast and let the good times roll.

New Year’s Eve Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

Every once in a while we hear a love story that appears to be straight out of a movie screenplay — Christina and Brandon’s story is definitely that, and it’s guaranteed to start your weekend off on a sweet note! The newlyweds planned this gorgeous wedding in a whopping two weeks, recruiting the help of Brooke from Blush Photography to capture the stunning day. You’ll want to take a few minutes to soak in this precious story:

From the bride, Christina: So I have a rash romantic love story. We grew up in the same neighborhood. Our families were lifetime friends. His mom tricked him into asking me out and we had the best date of our lives – we laughed the entire time. He lived in Las Vegas, I lived in Salt Lake so, we just texted and talked every chance we got. A few weeks after our first date, I got this crazy idea to drive to Vegas at 11 o’clock at night and surprise him. While I was on the phone, driving (with my headset on) I crashed after hitting black ice, spinning off the road and into a ditch 30 feet below, my car completely totaled. As soon as he found out what had happened, he jumped in his car and drove 7 plus hours through the snow and ice to get to me. We he finally arrived, he told me me how crazy in love he was and that my near death experience made him realize that I couldn’t live without me. Without this lucid moment he never would have been able to tell me that he loved me. We both knew we we were meant to be.

Two weeks later he proposed and though we thought initially we would get married in 5 or 6 months, we soon realized that was an absolutely ridiculous idea and instead decided to get married in a few weeks. We were so in love, there wasn’t any point in starting the new year without each other.

Everything fell perfectly into place. We really didn’t have to do much planning because whenever there was a need, there was someone there to help. Like magic. We called La Caille and asked about New Years Eve. They had had a couple cancel for that date just an hour before we called. I found my dress in a half hour. Brandon found his suit just as quickly and it fit him perfectly- also the very last one in the store! Our photographer was available, the florist and the videographer. All were available on such short notice. I was really blown away by the beauty of it all. We were so blessed.

From our first date to our wedding date was only 50 days. We planned every detail of our beautiful day in 2 weeks. We were and continue to be truly blessed in our love. We are so incredibly happy and so thankful for everyone that helped us on our special day. The florist, the photographer, the videographer and his team, etc were so amazing. All such wonderful people! We all have our “dream wedding” in mind, but mine surpassed everything I ever imagined.

New Year’s Eve Party

DIY Projects

Photos by:

The girls at HEYLOOK sent over a NYE party kit that is as fabulous as it is simple to decorate at home, just in time for tomorrow! Here are four easy DIY projects that are a must for a New Year’s Eve party:

DIY streamer letter

1. Gold fringe wrapped numbers:

For the NYE “2012” decor you’ll need:
– cardboard (we used some boxes leftover from Christmas gifts)
– a tinsel door curtain (available at party supply stores like this one)
– glue and scissors
– numbers (or letters) printed on paper to desired size.

NYE wedding ideas

Trace number outlines to cardboard and cut out. The font used on the numbers is called Bebas neue and can be downloaded free here. Then place some glue on the cardboard cut out and wrap a few strips of the foil curtain around it. Continue in this way until the entire cardboard number is covered with foil strips. You can cut off excess strips or simply let them hang off loosely, depending on what look you’re going for. If you like the look we created, make twist the strips a few times while wrapping and attaching them to the number. If you like it more neat, attach the strips evenly.

These numbers, although fairly large, are very light-weight and can be hung from the ceiling on nylon string with a bit of tape.

We completed the look by hanging strips of foil curtain from the ceiling in several places. This entire decor is done with one single curtain, so the costs are really low.

NYE DIY confetti poppersDIY confetti poppers

2. Confetti Poppers:

For the confetti poppers you’ll need:

– tissue paper
– toilet paper rolls
– glue, scissors
– erm…confetti
– glitter dots (you can use a hole punch to make your own)
– double sided tape
– sewing needle and thread
– streamers
– nylon fishing line

Brush a thin coat of coat of glue on toilet paper rolls and wrap tissue paper like in the photo above. Using a sewing needle, pull the thread on one end of your popper. This will be the bottom of your confetti popper. Once you threaded one end, make sure to make a knot large enough on the inside so the thread stays put. Add confetti, and tie the other end of your popper with fishing line to hang from the ceiling. Embellish with tissue paper, glitter dots, double sided tape and loose glitter sprinkled on.

3. Tinsel “sparkler” cake toppers:
You can make some cake decor and drink stirrers with tinsel garlands. We simply attached a piece of tinsel to gold wire and stuck them into our rather imperfect (but yummy!) coconut cream cake.

4. Wishes for the New Year:

They also created a printable for Wishes for 2012, an idea worth perusing in lieu of guest books for your weddings! Guests can write their wishes for the new year and hang them on streamers. Print out the cards for the New Year’s wishes and cut them out.
