New Year's Eve has to be one of the best nights of the year to get married. Period! Everyone is already in great spirits on December 31st, and the fun and festiveness of a wedding only adds to the merriment. Best of all, counting down to the new year takes on a whole new meaning when the happy newlyweds beside you are also counting down the start of their first year as newlyweds. Cara & Selwyn tied the knot with their family and loved ones at the Diamond Ballroom in Vancouver.

Having planned a lovely photo session with the bridal party at Jericho Beach?!, the bright, clear sky was undoubtedly a welcome sight when Cara & Selwyn awoke the morning of the wedding!
Lara of Coco Events & Weddingscreated a beautiful, intimate atmosphere for the couple's evening ceremony at the Diamond Ballroom in Vancouver and planned the day perfectly, from start to finish. The beauty and elegance continued into the dining room, where the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a delicious catered dinner, lively speeches and the great views that the Diamond Ballroom is known for.
The ceremony area was later transformed into the perfect reception room to dance the night away and help the couple ring in a new year that is sure to be amazing!
A cake with bling? Yes please! Cake artisan Van Doren created the perfect cake to suit the couple's elegant and festive wedding style.
Cara chose the perfect sparkly bridesmaids dresses for their New Year's nuptials and her ruched trumpet gown of tulle and lace layers had just the right amount of sparkle to match.
Even at night, the lights of the city offer a spectacular sight! Just about the best way to spend one's New Year's Eve!
