A Golden New Years Eve Wedding

The countdown has officially begun!

We are only a few days away from the New Year, and we wanted to show off a seriously stunning NYE wedding. If you need some fun inspiration ideas for your own big day, take some notes on how perfectly Ashley & Dean decorated their ceremony and wedding reception. They brought in the New Year with a glorious bang! Streamers, confetti, and party hats- what more could you need?

This beautiful, award-winning New York venue is historic and so very chic.  With its 40-foot ceilings and glistening chandeliers, the ballroom alone is breathtaking. If you are wondering what New Years Eve decorations to get, take a look at the array of party accessories that Dean and Ashley had for their wedding guests.

How do you like to reign in the New Year?

A Blue Wedding in New Mexico

Today, we are sharing a darling wedding to honor Jacquelyn and Peter!

This charming wedding took place in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. Their stunning religious ceremony was later followed by a relaxing outdoor reception at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya. Located in the Sandia Mountains, this Resort & Spa captures the real beauty of the Southwest.

We love the amazing pops of blue throughout their entire wedding theme; and those creamy white floral bouquets are so stunning, they almost take our breath away! Jacquelyn and Peter picked fun wedding colors, and we are smitten with their attention to detail- from Jacquelyn’s jewelry to their blue and gold wedding cake. This blue wedding works beautifully for any season!

Fall Wedding with a Little Red Barn

Today, we are elated to be sharing this real wedding of Clarissa and Sean. They tied the knot at the Mountain Springs Lake, a stunning Pocono resort located in the mountains of Pennsylvania. We love the pops of purple, navy, and white throughout their wedding decorations.

Their classic, soft colors work for any season. But we really love how their wedding venue speaks to the fullness and unique beauty that autumn always brings. Could anything be more adorable than this little red barn? This rustic, lakeside wedding nestled within the mountains is wonderfully romantic!

Formal Black-Tie Wedding

Today, we are beaming with joy to share Megan and Benjamin’s classic, formal wedding. Hosted in Tampa Florida, these elegant venues perfectly captured their traditional day. Weddings with a soft, neutral palette remain effortlessly timeless! Great for any season, this dignified wedding theme easily translates no matter where you and your significant other may live.

From The Bride:

Our wedding was very “us” in every way possible! From the venue’s botanical vibe, to our wine cork collection serving as our personalized “guest book”, and our musician’s alternative sound, every single detail of this wedding was hand-chosen by myself and my husband. Our simple yet beautiful flowers, the meal and appetizers served, our “exit” details (playing/dancing in balloons to our favorite song and riding off in a Wrangler), our WPD paper products that truly defined our overall wedding “theme”, and everything else in between- every piece was intentional. It couldn’t have been more perfect, or unique to us and our 10 year relationship!

You read all about Wedding Paper Divas staffer Kari’s wedding planning journey in our Bride’s Diary series, and now you can see the gorgeous photos from her big day!
