Marty & Crista / by Laura Reaney

New Year's Eve weddings are always fun to photograph because everybody is ready to party, and Crista and Marty's 1920's Great Gatsby themed wedding was no exception! The ladies at Salon Lux made Crista and her bridesmaids look super glamorous and the lights, the music and the decor at Cargo made for a roaring party that was perfect for ringing in the new year as well as celebrating such a wonderful couple. But my favorite party of the night wasn't the cake with sparklers on it or the newly weds counting down to midnight (thought those moments were close!). My favorite part was during the ceremony when Crista and Marty invited Marty's kids to stand with them up at the alter. The officiant asked the kids to take Marty and Crista as their parents and the Marty and Crista to take them as their children. It was such a cool way to incorporate the children into this new union and special way for them all to start this new life as a family together.
