Joanna and Jay wanted to throw a party their friends would never forget for their New Year’s Eve wedding. The couple incorporated Kentucky touches along with nods to Austin, Texas where they now live.

Decor reflected the holiday with rich gold and cranberry tones. Guests enjoyed an elegant spin on Chinese take-out for dinner complete with gold chopsticks. A champagne tower, DJ spinning records and a balloon drop created a fun, modern celebration that lasted well into the New Year.
