Our adorable couple, Tia and Chris, met as kids in high school and then went their separate ways out into the world…only to be unexpectedly reunited years later at a Spring Training baseball event. Chris plays ball for the Atlanta Braves now, though at the time he was a player for the Houston Astros. Tia recognized her old friend and the embers began to warm up. After much texting, flirting, and eventually moving in together, Tia was surprised by Chris with a sneaky engagement dinner on the beach at their vacation resort in Puerto Rico. From there, the wheels were set in motion for one big, beautiful wedding celebration.
Tia and Chris chose the most festive night of the year to begin their adventure together as husband and wife: New Year’s Eve. One of our very favorite designers and coordinators, the talented Christopher Confero, helped take the opulence of the Biltmore Ballrooms up a notch for the couple’s late-night soiree, with glittering gold and elegant cream details, and, of course, lots of sparkling bubbly and fireworks to add to the festivities. Their photography was done by Rob and Wynter, who are just incredible, and they really captured not only the love between these two, but the super-fun vibe of the evening. The couple toasted to happy memories and their very newest beginning as the clock wound up to midnight, sharing in a countdown that they would be recalling every December 31st for the rest of their lives. Cheers to forever!!
Tia and Chris, we are so grateful to have been part of your gorgeous wedding; from learning your origin story during the filming of your rehearsal dinner video, right down to the absolutely amazing midnight blowout; we so very much enjoyed being part of your wedding! We wish you both endless New Year’s Eve kisses and many happy memories of that special night to remember!
