A couple weeks ago, I was honored to be able to shoot a dinner party hosted by a couple who were described to me by all their guests as being "extremely kind and so very generous". They are known for being wonderful hosts, and I was giddy with being able to photograph such a beautiful evening!
This home was located on the lake, and I found it to be beautiful, inviting, and cozy...
I could have spent the whole evening just shooting details of the property...lovely. Yep, that's the word.
The yard backs right up to the lake, and the view was breathtaking, and the perfect place for this dinner.Limelight Catering...oh. my goodness. They did an absolutely fabulous job, and their staff was so kind and great to work with!! The food was seriously amazing...
The beach was beautiful...
chairs!! The details were perfect...each one adding to the feeling of the evening, but not overpowering. I love subtle class.
herbs incorporated among the florals in the table scape...the rustic wooden planter boxed tied in the chairs so perfectly!
Even the food and the color was worked into the evening...I love details...and these were thought out so intentionally!
I asked the bartender to mix a drink for me that captured the theme of the evening...he made this delicious mixture of orange juice, a little 7up, and a hint of grenadine. I thought it was so pretty and tasted really great too!
The sun setting on the lake was the perfect backdrop to the sound of a live performer singing Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin melodies and the laughter of good friends.
A personal thanks to...
Martha for trusting me with the memories of the evening!
The "M" family for letting me capture the beauty of your time with friends and family.
Tracy for coming with me and shooting the dinner with me!!
Limelight for catering this amazing evening...your work is absolute perfection.
and a HUGE thanks to Emilia for giving me this opportunity. It was not lost on me for a moment that it was because of your generosity that I got this great experience!!
