And just like that, 2016 has come and gone. Another year of the most fun couples, the most amazing venues and many new, unique traditions. We experienced 23 ‘I Dos’ from here to Hawaii and enjoyed each and every one of them. We celebrated our first anniversary and then it was time for the holidays, but we weren’t done yet.
Michael & Shara waited until the final day of the year to say their vows and it was absolutely perfect. A Gatsby-inspired day with shimmers of lights, lace details and rich wintery florals. We joined the gals as they got ready and enjoyed the company of the adorable Howard, Mike & Shara’s pup. We gushed over the details of Shara’s Maggie Sottero Designs lace gown and couldn’t wait to see what more beautiful details this day had in store.
As we explored Uptown Maumee with its historic aesthetic, we enjoyed the beautiful Christmas lights that lit up the street. Although it was a little chilly, it was not too much to bear as Mike & Shara cuddled up close and the bridal party kept us laughing to stay warm.
Langley Hall was set up beautifully for this sweet winter ceremony. The lush romantic florals by Bartz Viviano and gorgeous lighting set the mood perfectly. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and apps downstairs at Degage Jazz Cafe while the hall was rearranged for a night of fun and dancing.
Guests returned and enjoyed a delicious dinner and the anticipation for the stroke of midnight grew. Brian from Ultimate Nights kept the music going and we had a blast counting down till 2017. To end the night, Mike & Shara made their grand exit through a tunnel of sparklers.
This was the perfect way to end another amazing year. We still can’t believe how lucky we are to have such wonderful couples and we have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of them. Be sure to check out our year in review and don’t worry, there is more to come! To kick off 2017, we celebrated a sweet, intimate wedding with Sarah & Dave and can’t wait to share these gorgeous details!
