Dana & Jim – New Year’s Eve Wedding at the McCormick Scottsdale Resort

Dana & Jim – New Year’s Eve Wedding at the McCormick Scottsdale Resort

We instantly fell in love with Dana and Jim the moment we met them for happy hour.  They are the kind of people you just really want to be friends with, who have the kind of love for each other that inspires us.  Their wedding was at the The McCormick Scottsdale Resort because that’s where the two had first met some 20 years previously.  20 years together, but just now legally allowed to call each other their spouse.  It was a celebration that would be done in style with all of the merit that such a special occasion deserves!  And if you have to wait 20 years to marry the man you love you do it BIG, like black tie New Year’s Eve BIG.  We started the day at their amazing home, covered in Christmas decorations that would rival that of Santa’s manor himself.  Their closest friends and family and their beloved animals helped get the day started.  The party then moved to the resort where we all shed some tears at their vows and watched one of the best First Dance performances ever.  In fact, Dana had even choreographed an entire dance routine to entertain the guests with a slew of beautiful back up dancers!  It was perfect.  The confetti flew as the party rang in the New Year, and we ended the night in delectable fashion with fireworks over the lake.  To say this wedding was perfect is an understatement.  Congratulations Dana and Jim on 20 years of love and friendship and the start of the next 20 years in matrimony!!!!!!!!
