New Year’s Eve weddings are such a blast – they’re the perfect excuse to stay up late with everyone you love and party the night away as you celebrate your nuptials! This NYE wedding inspiration shoot from Orange Blossom Special Events & Jen & Dayton Photography pulls loads of color into the picture in the most amazing way. Cue the confetti and begin the countdown to ever after!
From Grace of Orange Blossom Special Events – “This Vibrant New Years Eve stylized shoot was the very first step of our journey to bring Orange Blossom Special Events to the midwest. I interned for Orange Blossom Special Events in the summer of 2013. Fast forward to today: I’m opening a branch of Orange Blossom here in the “Lou”…I’m so excited! Immediately upon embarking on this journey to show St. Louisians what Orange Blossom is all about, I met with Jen & Dayton, a husband and wife photography team who I’ve heard only the most amazing things about. After meeting, we all knew we had to work together!
Jen & Dayton were offered the opportunity of shooting a stylized shoot at a new raw/industrial venue downtown called north13th and asked me to be their coordinator to put it together…of course I said yes!! After touring the new venue, I was so thrilled to have a clean slate to work with: concrete floors, exposed white brick, huge windows bringing in so much light. A wedding coordinator’s dream!
In the beginning stages of planning, I was inspired by lights on a Christmas tree. I love how beautiful all the different colors look together and how just thinking about a Christmas tree gives me so much joy any time of year. The same goes for confetti: bits of magenta here, silver and gold hints there, reds and greens and pinks and blues all coming together to create a really festive look. I built my vision with these pops of color and a celebration of something good in mind.
Before I knew it, there we were at north13th having a ‘New Years Eve wedding’ party of our own with DJ Pierre of Griffin Events blasting music, funky fun florals beautifully bundled by For Like, Ever! Events, a Patty Long Catering spread that reminded us all of our favorite holiday indulgences and a team of other amazing vendors who put so much heart into this day.”
