New Years Eve Wedding

From the moment I met Megan and Alex over a Zoom call, I KNEW that I wanted to work with them to plan their New Years Eve wedding. I have always thought that NYE was the perfect night to get married. Can you think of a more exciting way to start a new year?? When I asked why they wanted to get married on that date, Megan gave me an answer that completely excited me...they are both professional musicians with the Austin Symphony Orchestra, so the holiday was a rare day off from performances. Okay. One thing that you will learn pretty quick if you get to know me is I LOVE classical music. Like, it's almost all I listen to. Megan is a violinist and Alex plays viola. Ohhhhh my heart was so happy! When they decided to book with me, I was definitely doing my happy dance. So now, let me tell you how perfect their day was. First, the venue. Happy Days Lodge, which is part of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, was the most perfect venue for them. The ceremony was held on the porch and the two were wed in front of an arch that was custom built by Megan's dad!! It was amazing! The bride walked down the aisle to the Pas de Deux from the ballet The Nutcracker, which is one of my all time favorite pieces. The Great Hall was set for the reception flooded with candles and simple, classic winter greenery. The warmth of the fireplace just added to the ambiance of the space. Before dinner, the couple had prepared an extra special treat. A private candlelight concert! The newlyweds joined the other two members of their quartet and gave a 60 minute concert with music ranging from The Beatles to John Williams. What an incredible experience for everyone in that reception hall. It was certainly a highlight moment for me. The reception ended with a live countdown to ring in the new year. A perfect way to celebrate the happiest day of their lives!
