BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Traces of the holidays can still be seen throughout the Mucha family home. But they were easily overshadowed by wedding decor.

"We just decided a new beginning, new hope for the future a new year, start fresh and New Year's Eve would be a great time to do it," said Mary Margaret Woodward.

After a year of courtship and a standing engagement, James Woodward and Mary Margaret Mucha decided to marry.

"Christmas dinner night she said, 'Mom, we're going to get married.' And I said. 'I know honey.' And she said, 'Yeah, we're going to do it New Year's Eve,'" said Linda Mucha.

Mary's brother Mike couldn't believe the news.

"I thought they were crazy, but with my mom and me and Mary and James putting everything together, it's really great," said Mike.

"I'm looking forward to a future full of great memories for all of us," said Cecily Cumming-Mucha.

Great memories that begin with a New Year's Eve intimate wedding on the Back Bay, complete with friends and family.

Now this bride and groom are looking forward to a new beginning ahead of the new year.
