There are few better ways to ring in the New Year than with a wedding! It was an absolute pleasure to not just plan Dayna and Alex’s wedding, but to celebrate their new beginning and the New Year together at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts!
Damon Tucci Photography did a brilliant job of capturing every precious moment, each step of the way. The evening began with a sweet, heartwarming church ceremony. Dayna was a vision in a heavenly white gown, her makeup and hair lovingly styled by About Face Design Team. Alex looked very handsome and dashing as he waited for his bride at the altar.
The room was buzzing with excitement, and perhaps the most excited guests of all were the youngest: Dayna and Alex made sure to include 14 of their nieces, nephews, and cousins in the wedding!
Soon after the ceremony, it was time to celebrate…with one small break in the action for a very personal photography moment. For Dayna, an animal lover, the day would’ve been incomplete without her dogs. Fortunately, two of her dogs were brought over to the church, resulting in the most adorable photo session!
The reception at Dr. Phillips was truly stunning, with guests greeted by topiary animals at the entrance as they walked in. The interior was lavishly adorned with beautiful, luxurious chairs and gorgeous decor. Besting this incredible design was no small feat, but the star of the show was the magnificent floral chandelier created by Flourish Floral Productions!
Once the music began for the New Orleans Second Line Dance, there wasn’t a single person who could stay off the dance floor! Dayna and Alex’s energy was infectious, and their beautiful umbrellas made for a dance so unique, we couldn’t look away!
The rest of the night was spent feasting on the delicious meal by Arthur’s Catering and Events, dancing to Blonde Ambition’s tunes, and counting down the minutes till midnight! As soon as midnight hit on the digital countdown, everyone rejoiced, welcoming 2017 with confetti, noisemakers, and lots of love all around! Blonde Ambition played Auld Lang Syne as a traditional farewell to 2016.
The reception ended with a confetti launch as Dayna and Alex prepared to say goodbye to their guests, ready to begin the New Year and the next chapter of their lives together. Congratulations again, Dayna and Alex! Thank you so much for trusting us to plan your special day, and many thanks to the vendors that helped us make it possible!
