I think one of the most exciting things about New Years Eve is that it is a day that marks the end of one period in life and the start of a new one. We reflect and reminisce over the year that we are leaving behind and at the same time resolve and celebrate the year that is coming before us. If there was ever a day to reflect the similar change that happens on a wedding day it would be this day.
Despite the frigid winter temperatures of Kansas City, John and Jessica had a wedding day that truly sparkled. The two of them together have a warmth and an energy that ignites a room and typically envelopes everyone around them in uncontrollable laughter (see tambourine dancing below for examples). Their classic reception at the Vox Theater was a party to remember and their band, Kokomo, rang in the new year with style. Enjoy!
From Jessica & John:
Jessica’s favorite moments: Besides being freezing cold, the day was perfect. I have so many favorite memories of the day!
Getting ready to walk down the aisle with my dad. It was such an emotional time but the anticipation of all the wonderful things to come that day was so exciting!
Another favorite moment was John and I sharing our first dance and reminiscing about what a great day we’d had so far.
John’s favorite moment: My favorite memory from the night was giving my new wife her first New Year’s kiss as a Molner.
Inspiration for the wedding: A new year, a new life together! We wanted to throw an awesome New Year’s Eve party for our wedding reception and ring in the New Year with our closest family and friends.
Advice to brides planning in the future: Enjoy your wedding day! Trust your vendors do their jobs and relax and just enjoy all your hard work. Everyone says it goes by so fast, but it truly does, so try to remember each moment of your special day.
