There Was No Shortage of Glitter at This Glamorous New Year's Eve Wedding in Temecula, California
From the moment Troy Solomon and Ian Mofford conveyed their wedding dress code, guests knew they were in for a giant disco fete. The couple told guests to “pretend you’re going to the flashiest New Year’s Eve party ever—what would you want to wear?” That very sentiment set the tone for the sparkling celebration that unfolded. Inspired by the vision of a canopy of disco balls, the pair set out to plan a wedding filled with “over-the-top extraness.” The key to bringing that vision to life was to add rhinestones, and then add some more. “I had this rhinestone cowboy motif in my head, so I essentially set out to make everything look super extra. The first thing I did was bedazzle my boots, which really ignited my addiction for adding sparkle to everything in sight,” Ian says. He also donned a butterfly-appliquéd jacket as a subtle homage to family. “The lapel had bee appliqués on either side as a nod to my dad and stepmom who are bee keepers in their spare time,” he says. “My dad had just become a master beekeeper that summer.” Troy sported a black jacket with colorful tassels and rainbow rhinestones on the lapel, which he paired with a sparkly black hat and glamorous manicure. “We had been brainstorming my wedding nails for about four months—we wanted to go big and flashy, but with some sort of personal touch,” he says. “I wanted something totally extra and super special. That’s where the idea of tiny baby pictures of us getting turned into nail art sprang from.” The bridesmaids wore sequin dresses and carried bouquets of lavender. The couple used their seating assignments as an excuse to write a heartfelt note to every guest, and they also set up an escort card display with colorful cards and clothespins. To stave off the evening chill, on-palette blankets were laid out for guests. The night ended with unique disco ball cakes that sparkled under the reception lights.
