New Year’s Eve was the holiday I could never figure out. But these two beautiful souls – by golly – they know how to celebrate! Ringing in the new year with a celebration of becoming husband and wife: that is the epitome of all festivities!
Jimmy comes from a family I have long admired + one I’m honored to know. This larger-than-life, enthusiastic clan is that fam that will hug you upon first meeting. They are inviting and beautiful and know just how to find all the happiness life holds + spread it far and wide. Jimmy is no exception to this – and he could not have met a better person to add to his family. Sarah is just as warm + beautiful + passionately happy! It was invigorating to watch the two of them interact all the way through their wedding day. Dancing + singing + constantly locking eyes with each other; I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to capture. Honored does not begin to cover how grateful I was to spend the last day of 2016 with these two! I am certain that no other NYE will top it & to be honest, I think I’m perfectly okay with that.
Enjoy some of my favorite moments from their special day! // xo – Mariss
