I looked forward to Ciara and Tyson's New Years Eve wedding ever since our first meeting when they described ideas of confetti, sparklers and fireworks. The evening devoted to celebrating their marriage would extend into a memorable party to kick off the new year, and memorable it was! I met Ciara and her bridesmaids at the church, and the emotions were already flowing as Tyson repeatedly sent sentimental gifts to his bride-to-be. Later, the couple wed in a heartfelt ceremony with their friends and family looking on in adoration. I photographed the receiving line and witnessed hug after hug, sometimes accompanied by happy tears, all in honor of Tyson and Ciara.
Their reception was held in a nice building on Ciara's family farm complete with an impressive dinner, a cake cutting and dancing. The party continued on to midnight with a dance floor countdown to the new year. Confetti flew high, and the guests gathered out in the cold January air to witness an exciting fireworks show to celebrate. This wedding was beautiful, sweet, exciting and unique, and I was so privileged to capture the night for this lovely couple. Enjoy this peek into Ciara and Tyson's New Years Eve wedding celebration.
