Can you imagine a more romantic  New Year’s Eve kiss? The beginning of your new life together? I can’t. I honestly can’t.

When Andrew and Katrina sent us Christine and Trent’s 2008 New Year’s Eve wedding, I knew that it simply had to be the first full wedding feature that we highlighted in this season of celebration!  We truly hope that all of y’all had a safe but ever-so-spectacular New Year’s Eve! Whether it was out whooping it up with your nearest and dearest … or spent at home quietly with your lovies (maybe watching some of our film features on the LBB blog?) … it the perfect time to reflect and to dream. To think about the past, the present and the future. For many of us (old married folks} it’s a nostalgic time, to think about the past year in retrospect, and to plan the new year with renewed enthusiasm.  And for those of you who have weddings coming up in 2010 and 2011 … woo~hoo!! It’s a time to celebrate and rejoice. Yes, rejoice. Love, the pursuit of happiness and marriage are still front and center in your lives! Ours too!

For those of you who just might be considering a New Year’s Eve wedding ~ maybe next year ~ we have the most elegant, chic, and pretty close to perfect wedding sent to us by our dear friends at Sedona Bride.

So on to their story! Christine and Trent were married ~ in fine style ~ at the Tempe Center for the Arts on New Year’s Eve ’08.  As you’ll see in these photos, it was a sensational setting for such an elegant and contemporary wedding.

The unbelievable floral columns and decor were by the fabulous Angelic Grove. So dramatic. So simplisticly dramatic.

I have to admit, I’m at a loss for words about the centerpieces! Fiber optic? Pretty darn awesome if you ask me.

But … the chocolate … oh … the chocolate … from Julia Baker Confections … can you see that fabulous cake?

Such personal, romantic moments that were captured forever by the terrific Katrina & Andrew! Incomprehensively perfect.

We at SMP and the Little Black Book wish Christine and Trent the very Happiest of New Years and Congrats on your First Anniversay too!!  You can see so many more images from this beautiful wedding celebration on Andrew & Katrina’s blog ~ Christine + Trent.

We have another Sedona Bride wedding coming up a little later today. Until then, if you have a few minutes, take a look at their blog and the sneek peak of Sage’s jaw-droppingly beautiful gown {here}! To die for!
