New Years Eve in Photos

#WELDNYE Nashville

Last week I mentioned that Jordan and I went to a huge NYE party at his co-working space, WELD Nashville. It was so much fun! Thinking ahead, Jordan stashed our camera in one of the offices and, before the night was over, was able to walk around and capture a few shots of the evening.

WELD’s layout is designed in such a way to allow for quieter conversations in the main room while the dancing commenced in the event space. No matter where you were in the building, once midnight neared everyone gathered together for the countdown. The room was buzzing with energy. Shouting “Happy New Year” in unison with 600 other friends was quite the experience.

^ I’m convinced photo booths are the key to a successful party. That and a good party playlist.

The night was made better because we were joined by close friends. The tickets went quick but since Jordan is a member he had access before they were open to the public. Afterwards we trekked for a midnight snacked and wound up being out past 4 am! That’s usually the hour I wake up when I’m opening for work. Haha. Thankfully, I was off the next day. 🙂

Have you ever gone to a NYE party like this one?

  1. This night sounds like so much fun! I haven’t stayed out that late in years haha. I’ve actually heard of WELD through several different design organizations, so that’s really cool that’s he a part of that space!

    1. Girl, I’m not sure I’ve ever stayed out that late! That’s awesome! Nashville is the second location but they are looking to expand the network all over. It’s such a great place.

  2. That looks like so much fun! I haven’t been to a NYE party in years! I always want to go to one but then I’m pretty happy I didn’t when I just want to sleep at 10:30 p.m. 😉 Maybe one day I’ll be hip and cool again and will go to a fun party!

  3. That looks awesome! We usually do NYE with friends at a house party (that makes it sound crazy.. it’s not. haha) but someday I’d love to do something like this. Also, I hear ya on the early rising! Tyler started work at 3:30 am in Alaska and I was only a couple hours behind. It’s definitely a different life, but I kind of liked living the early to rise, early to bed kind of life. Even though I’m naturally a night owl, the early life felt more balanced and healthy to me.

    1. Our NYE’s are usually small gatherings too but it was nice to mix it up. I’ve gotten pretty used to it. Even prior to working at a coffee shop that opens at 4:30 I still had to wake up around 6:30 for my commute into Chicago. I like that even though I might be tired I have a lot of options by working earlier in the day.

  4. I am loving the light in these photos! Happy New Year! We had a sort of weird NYE as we were in Marrakech Morocco with my husband’s family. After a dinner (that was dragged to 4 hours so we ended up counting down with other people at the restaurant), we pretty much crashed on our beds. haha we’re lame!

  5. Sounds like such a fun celebration!! Some friends and I went to a loft party in NYC one of the years I was living there – it was a similar sort of space as the one in your photos, great DJ, good food. What I remember most about it though was the laughs my friends and I had as one girl brought a guy she’d been out with once and he turned out to be SO not the one (evident during the party ha), and the views as the ball dropping in Times Square was in eye shot from half the windows 🙂
    I haven’t stayed up til 4 in a very long time though…a regular bedtime for the city, and occasionally in London, but it’s been a good few years now LOL.

    1. That sounds like an amazing place to ring in the new year! I could never stand outside for the ball drop but I’d happily be within eye shot of it! I’m sure your friend learned her lesson — don’t bring a new guy to that kind of party!
