New Year's Eve is a very special day to get married. Not only are you ending the year/starting the year as a married couple, but it only falls on the weekend so often. Heather + Aaron were our last couple of 2017 (and first of 2018) and they could not have been more amazing! Not only are they a beautiful couple, they are just as beautiful on the inside and absolutely adored by their friends and family.
It has to be said that the weather can go many ways when you have a winter wedding, and for these two we got the coldest of the cold! The high was 12 degrees and the low that night was -24 with the wind chill. Brrrrrrr! However, Daniel and I have dubbed Heather + Aaron our ultimate weather warriors! Seriously. They were total troopers and during our short stints outside for pictures, they did amazing. Not once did I have to ask them to relax their shoulders or smile like their faces weren't freezing off. Not even these subzero temps could lessen their excitement on their big day! I don't know how they did it - I could barely feel my legs at one point - while Heather was in a dress and open-toed shoes totally killing it!
Their ceremony took place at Graham Chapel and they held their reception and New Year's Eve countdown at the Marriott Grand downtown. Both locations were stunning and WARM! I absolutely loved their choice of colors and details for their glamorous winter wedding, everything looked perfect and festive. The maid of honor and best man both did tremendous jobs on their speeches and had everyone laughing, as well as wiping some tears. Add in a photobooth, lots of dancing, new year's props, and a pizza delivery to sustain everyone until midnight - and you have a perfect night! Daniel and I had an absolute blast photographing everyone having so much fun! In fact, we captured one of our all time favorite reception dancing pictures...you will know it when you see it. Heather + Aaron's wedding day was all around a wonderful celebration of their becoming Mr. & Mrs. and we loved every minute of working with them! I was so glad that they honeymooned somewhere warm! Enjoy some highlights from their best day ever! Happy 2018!
