NYE Celebration

The big day for this former editor for Philadelphia Wedding Magazine was a spectacular celebration complete with all the NYE touches- big band, sparklers, ball drop and of course lots of champagne.. When they decided to marry, New Year’s Eve was a natural choice, it was a chance to throw an unforgettable party. They said their vows in the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul, in Philadelphia—still decorated in its holiday scenery. Then 250 guests joined them at the Please Touch Museum at Memorial Hall to celebrate with cocktails, carousel rides, and ’80s music. Guests snapped pics with white selfie sticks, handed out in lieu of having a photo booth. And rather than a plated dinner, a feast was served via food stations— dumplings, tacos, risotto—that kept people on their feet and in the party spirit. In fact, the celebration lasted into the wee hours. Confetti flew, toasts were shared, and the couple—and their friends—were just getting started.
