Andy and Sarah Schendel rang in the new year in love — and in style. The Plymouth couple were wed on New Year’s Eve, hoping to throw the party of the year.

“We wanted to make sure it wasn’t just a wedding, but a party as well,” Sarah said.

Andy, 28, and Sarah, 27, showed off their youthful spirit by adding whimsical touches to their wardrobe: sequined snow boots, a fur wrap and a tie with a hand-sewn love note. And, of course, plenty of noisemakers and tiaras for their guests to celebrate when the balloons dropped at midnight.
