Looking to kick off their new life together in celebratory style, Venessa and Scott invited their friends and family to join them for a New Year’s Eve party like none other – their very own wedding day. The bride and groom shared a first look in the afternoon, before guests made their arrival, before separating again for their evening ceremony. The two said ‘I do’ in a candlelit ceremony in the Buckingham Farm’s Rustic Barn, a Fort Myers wedding and event venue, an open venue complete with a stacked stone wall in the ceremony space. While their guests enjoyed cocktails and miniature versions of their favorite foods, the bride and groom met with their twins, Chelsea and Ellis, for sweet family portraits. Guests, all in formal black tie attire, found their seats thanks to a garland-adorned seating chart created by event and floral designer Hollie Raulerson of Elleson Events, a wedding planner in Fort Myers. Tables, numbered with festive magnum bottles of champagne, made a statement thanks to alternating sequined and striped linens from La Tavola Linen. The couple was all smiles as they took the floor for their first dance before DJ Dayve got all the guests in the party mood. An interactive cocktail bar, complete with themed concoctions and classic favorites, was a hit with the guests. As the clock struck midnight, guests met the new year with a celebratory showering of the new Mr. and Mrs. in champagne.
