When I think of New Year’s Eve, I think of the gold and gilded, the sparkly details, and celebrating with friends and family. Lizzie + Greg must have been thinking the exact same thing — their December 31 wedding rung in the New Year with winter wedding style. Lizzie went monotone with her dress and flowers, opting for a round bouquet of white roses to blend in with her lace Enzoani dress, while her bridesmaids carried dark purple calla lilies to match their black ensembles. Lizzie + Greg exchanged vows at the Blessed Sacrament, where poinsettias and Christmas trees wrapped in lights provided a festive backdrop. I love that Lizzie kept a fur stole handy for the winter weather — perfect for snuggling next to her new hubby in these photos by Nate Henderson and for being whisked off to their reception. Lizzie + Greg’s reception made for a beautiful New Year’s Eve celebration as well! Guests headed to the beautiful Telfair Museum where tables decked with white hydrangeas and candle-lit trees filled the space. I’m always a fan of gold chiavari chairs and I think they carry the sparkle of New Year’s Eve throughout the room perfectly, without being overwhelming. Lizzie + Greg were wonderful hosts and provided guests with festive hats to ring in the New Year, cigars to celebrate, and pashminas to keep warm. Of course, no wedding is complete without a few sweets! A dessert bar treated guests all night while a cake shaped and decorated in the form of Lizzie + Greg’s favorite champagne gave the newlyweds the chance to partake in the cake-cutting tradition. At the end of the night, everyone welcomed in the New Year and the happy couple took their exit through a line of sparklers and into a white vintage car. Now that’s the ultimate way to celebrate! Big thanks to Nate Henderson for sharing!
Once the party finally starts: Now we’re cookin’!
