A Fun New Year’s Eve Wedding at The Addison in Boca Raton, Florida

Irina Kachalenko (33 and a health coach) and Richard Satz (38 and president of Kinon Inc.) brought in the New Year with a colorful and metallic wedding that was sure to make their night memorable. “Our wedding was on New Year's Eve, so you know we needed to bling it up at least a little,” Irina says. Poirier Wedding Photography was there to capture every moment, from the outdoor ceremony basked in purple uplighting to the fun indoor reception at The Addison. The team at Dalsimer Atlas helped Irina and Richard fill their wedding with matching purple and white accents. A cascading bouquet of white calla lilies and purple orchids was designed for Irina. It complemented the couple’s purple aisle decor as well as the purple flowers on their white wedding arch and their centerpieces. Each gold-accented table at the reception was met with a tall floating pink orchid centerpiece topped with white hydrangeas and more pink orchids. Another detail that stood out was the couple’s metallic wedding cake. Baked by Creative Cake Factory, the couple’s four-tier confection took New Year’s Eve’s traditional gold and silver color palette to new heights. Each layer of red velvet or almond white cake was covered in either diamond white fondant, silver fondant or a fun rosette detail, as the cake was topped with a personalized black accent. For future couples, Irina shares a tip: “It's kind of hard to uphold, but this is your wedding, so make it something you will enjoy, but be prepared to be a little flexible. My suggestion is that you sit down with your mate and discuss what you are not willing to compromise on. Focus on what's going to make it special for you, and be prepared to compromise on everything else.”
