landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Let me just say, I was pretty excited when Karin from Starry Eyed Studios wanted to share this wedding with me.  Not only are the photos beautiful, and the details thought-through, but it is a New Year’s Eve wedding. I have a big soft-spot for well-executed New Year’s Eve weddings, and this one hits the nail on the head.  Not to mention the couple, Rainy and Nick, is absolutely gorgeous and managed to be blessed with 70-degree weather on New Year’s Eve. That almost never happens (considering it is typically 20-30 degrees on NYE).
