Jennifer & Todd
Dec. 31, 2009 at Graves 601 Hotel in Minneapolis
Jennifer Hansen and Todd Williams know how to start the new year right. Their New Year’s Eve wedding was the celebration of a relationship that began with a chance meeting after a concert in St. Paul and has grown to include the couple’s beautiful daughter, Taylor Nicole. Todd knows how to play to the crowd, as he proposed in front of a large group of family and friends. That celebratory spirit ruled the wedding, with its glamorous nightclub inspiration and party atmosphere. Guests raised sparklers to the couple as they exited the church, and beautiful deep red roses accented the black and gold scheme chosen to honor the holiday. The wedding party had an outdoor rendezvous downtown to check out the festive holiday lights, which was cause for fun and laughter in the cold night air. The party got even more celebratory when hats, beads, and horns came out. As midnight approached, the crowd counted down the new year—and the couple’s new life together—via a live feed from Times Square.
