Jacquelyn Hinde and Alex Worrel were married on New Year’s Eve at The Heirloom at N.K. Hurst in downtown Indianapolis. Guests were shuttled from the Alexander Hotel to The Heirloom, where they were greeted by a champagne wall leading into the wedding ceremony, conducted by the bride’s father.
Following the ceremony vows, guests were invited into a cocktail reception featuring his-and-hers signature drinks, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a “doughnut wall,” while the wedding party enjoyed a private cocktail hour aboard a trolley touring downtown Indy.
Bride and Groom cut the cake with a New Year's Toast!
Following a plated dinner at the reception, comedian Brent Terhune performed, and then came the first dances, both which were choreographed and stole the show. Guests joined in, showcasing their own moves, including backflips, handstands, and full dance routines. The new year was brought in with a champagne toast and streamers, followed by a late-night snack and more dancing - the perfect wedding and a perfect way to begin a new year, and a new life together.
