Despite the fact that I rarely stay awake long enough to watch the ball drop (lame), New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite days of the year. The sparkle, the bubbly, the all out fabulous. But more so, because 11 New Year’s Eves ago…I met that guy. The one that I would spend the rest of my life with. And even before we stepped out of the cab at nearly the exact same moment, I just knew that something great was coming my way. Doning the sparkliest, prettiest (maybe shortest) little dress I could find I held my breath for what seemed like an eternity until…he kissed me. On the cheek. Major lame. But it was good enough for this girl and as they often say, the rest is history. So this celebration by Head Over Heels with Melanie AND L’Relyea Events with photographs by Scott Andrew Studio gives me New Year’s Eve butterflies all over again…in the best way possible. Just make sure to hit up the gallery before you go!
From Melanie of Head Over Heels and Lindsey from L’Relyea Events as the event planner…
The style of this party was fun, vibrant New Year’s Eve party with elements of a wedding thrown in. Our lovely “bride” Velora still wore white and rocked a blinged out ring pop but there was no need for a veil. The invites and paper design by Fly Away Design had lots of little nods to New Years Eve as well as specifying “Sparkly Attire Required”. The style of the party was modern, fun and sophisticated while not taking itself to seriously. The fashion for this shoot is cool, funky, sparkly and unique. We wanted to show that you don’t have to all wear the same sparkly outfit every year! There are tons of different ways to dress for ringing in the New Year! The flowers by EV Floral popped against Lindsey’s vibrant teal and gold table scape. Sweet On Cake’s design works for a wedding, a birthday party, a New Year’s Eve event and beyond! Could this BE a more fun party?
