New Year, New Beginnings…
I can’t think of another saying that better sums up a wedding on New Year’s Eve.
To rock in the new year as a newly married couple on one of the most exciting and optimistic nights of the year has got to make one feel like they are on cloud nine. I can’t speak for Jana and Amanda, but I can tell you the excitement in the room was palpable throughout the evening. These two were soooo ready to say, “I do!” Watching their faces turn into the brightest smile as they saw each other down the aisle was everything.
Their love for each other knows no limits, no fears, no hesitations.
A love so pure. It was such an honor to witness a glimpse of their journey together. Surrounded by all their loved ones; friends and family, who support them whole-heartedly. As the toasts began, you could see just how much these two affect the ones around them. Not one, not two, not three, but MANY stepped up to the microphone to share how Jana and Amanda’s love has inspired and encouraged them over the years.
As Jana and Amanda planned their evening, I asked them what their inspiration was for the evening. They said, “we want it to be the best NYE celebration.” They wanted everyone to dance, eat and be merry. And boy did they!!! For hours everyone danced the night away, waiting for the special moment where we could all count down to 2020.
So, without further ado… 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1… Enjoy a peak into Jana and Amanda’s wedding day at 5th & Carroll in Fort Worth, TX.
