It was a drizzly New Year’s Eve on the day Denisse Aviles and Cody Engelbrecht had planned their wedding, but it simply didn’t matter to the bride in the end. “I picked the Clayton on the Park as our venue, and I always envisioned taking wedding photos at the park,” she says. “I was really worried we wouldn’t be able to, so I purchased bubble umbrellas … sure enough, we were able to take pictures at the park with the umbrellas, and I love how the pictures turned out. I think the rainy day set a very romantic wintery vibe.”

And, certainly, romance was the theme of the day. During the ceremony, the bride and groom read personally written vows and shared each of their interpretations of their love story, which the officiant had put together in a funny and romantic tale to share with their guests. As the night wore on, the theme turned from romance to party! “We set up a table with New Year’s Eve hats, crowns and noise-makers,” Denisse notes. “Overall, it was a big party, and we loved having our closest family and friends to celebrate the year 2014 and a new beginning as a married couple.”
