Jodi and Marc said ‘I Do’ in the honeymoon capital of the world last week and they will be hard-pressed to ever forget their anniversary because it was on New Years Eve in Niagara Falls. What a way to ring in the New Year!
The day started out mild and a little too wet outside–but after the romantic candle-lit ceremony everyone was warmed up with some hot chocolate from the Hot Chocolate Station! With marshmallows, chocolate shavings and all for making that perfect hot chocolate on a rainy day. Jodi decorated most of the Crowne Plaza hotel with clocks with their hands at midnight in preparation for the big countdown later that night.
Before the clock struck twelve we ventured out into the darkness for some photos–encountering a few problems trying to evening light the wedding party. But once we ditched the wedding party (sorry guys!) we were able to create some really spectacular images for just Marc & Jodi.
When we got back the reception was hoppin’ and dinner soon followed after Jodi & Marc did an awesome choreographed dance after their grand entrance! Everyone had a huge smile on their face watching them dance with a mix of romance and playfulness.
Finally the countdown to midnight was on and after hugs and kisses all around the dance floor everyone joined in on Auld Lang Syne.
From start to finish it was clear how much thought and preparation Jodi (and her ‘team’) had put into everything! The wedding was such a mix of romance and playfulness–it was awesome. And as you might suspect, I’ve been to just a few weddings, so I can be a little jaded when it comes to sentimentality–but their ceremony hardly left a dry-eye in the place–it was THAT lovely. And the incorporation of the kids, Sebastian and Audrey, into the proceedings just had everyone glowing.
It was very clear that there was a lot of love bouncing around that day–thanks for letting me be a part of it Jodi & Marc! Congratulations again!
