Sparkly, Modern New Year’s Eve Wedding Inspiration

xo gold balloons

Are any of you lovelies tying the knot this New Year’s Eve? We have to say, we’re kind of in love with the idea. Everyone’s already in party mode, lots of your guests will likely have time off from work, and you can add as much sparkle as you want to your celebration without feeling the least bit silly about it! Today’s festive shoot, photographed by Athena Pelton and conceptualized/designed by Maddy of Splendid Supply Co. is the perfect example of what we’re talkin’ about. Maddy partnered with Dani of Studio Fleurette to develop a palette they both loved for New Year’s Eve: black, white, silver, gold + navy. We love the updated take on the colors you traditionally see on NYE + the design elements they came up with are so good, too.

Maddy says, We incorporated lots of fun and festive details, including some favorite selections from Splendid Supply Co. (like our gold foil favor bags, our silver glitter heart cake topper, and our white heart cupcake toppers), tissue paper confetti from The Flair Exchange, gold foil invitations from Minted, and balloon tassel garlands from Glam Fete. The finished product is fun, festive, and fabulous!

NYE just begs for fun cocktails + lots of confetti! These gold + silver tinsel drink sticks by Em for Marvelous were a perfect choice.

Winter Picnic Engagement Session: Carly + Eddie

tent in the woods engagement

On their first date, Eddie was going to take Carly out for cheesecake, but when they got to the restaurant it was already closed. Eddie just so happened to have all the ingredients for cheesecake at his house, so he invited Carly over at 11pm to bake cheesecake. They stayed up all night making cheesecake, chatting and falling in love.

For their engagement photos with Kristy of Blush Wedding Photography, Eddie knew he wanted to surprise Carly again with a sweet picnic in the woods, incorporating this special dessert. Inspired by the colors of the season (and other engagements they’ve seen on GWS) and with the help of Delovely Creative, the prettiest scene came to life. A lace teepee, berry-hued florals, and – of course – two adorable miniature cheesecakes for the win…

Elopement at The Isle of Skye: Skye + James

Scotland Isle of Skype elopement

Australia natives, Skye + James, traveled far from home to tie the knot in one of the most raw + picturesque parts of Scotland – the always beautiful Isle of Skye. For this duo, the most important collective decision they made was that an elopement felt like the right thing to do. What could be better than starting their marriage off in the very place that Skye’s father named her after! :) Skye says, I think it was pretty much the eve that James proposed that we both knew what WE wanted to do. The Isle of Skye is a place that we have wanted to visit together for many years and for many reasons and we just knew that it was the perfect place for us to start on our biggest adventure together. Five months later we travelled 17000km from Sydney to Loch Coruisk, a place that we had never seen before. We had no idea what to expect. It was a huge risk but we knew that as long as we were together the day would be a fun adventure.

She adds, If you are considering eloping, our advice is to be courageous, pick a place that is special, book the best photographer you can (in Skye + James’ case that meant Kitchener Photographyto capture the day and go on an unforgettable journey together. We couldn’t agree more!

Skye: From sunrise to sunset, the entire day was completely unforgettable to me. Waking up in our thatched cottage, seeing each other ready for the first time, heading to the port to board our boat, the children at the local school waving to us and wishing us luck as we headed to Lock Coruisk, the sheer beauty of the surrounds as we journeyed on foot to our ceremony location, the ceremony, the first kiss, the journey back to our cottage, everything was faultless. A particular highlight for me was our hand fasting ceremony as it was such a unique way of symbolising the two of us becoming forever intertwined.

James: The moment I saw Skye for the first time was my most memorable moment. Leading up to it I was standing outside our thatched cottage waiting for Skye to put her wedding dress on. Aside from having a little laugh to myself about the fact that I knew and didn't care that I was signing up to be constantly waiting for her to get ready 'until death do us part' I also had a moment to appreciate the gravity, beauty and significance of what we were doing so that when I eventually saw her I could see a future wife, and a partner and a companion on our adventure of life. All emotional walls were down and it was just me and her, perfect!

The beauty of the modern day Elopement is that there are no rules and no limitations. We are lucky enough to be surrounded by family and friends that love and support us no matter what decisions we make in life. Even if some take longer to come around than others, they will come around eventually. We shared our plans with our families and loved ones from the moment we decided to elope which gave us the opportunity to celebrate before our adventure with high teas and buck nights and upon our return. We held an intimate ceremony with our immediate family at Wendy Whitely’s secret garden in Sydney shortly after our return along with quite a number of celebrations that followed!
