On the day of the event, once guests started arriving, I began snapping away. After photographing countless weddings, I was so taken aback by all..of…the…SMILES. Every single guest smiled. No one minded their photo taken and every table was full of conversation, laughter and genuine smiles. I loved it. I thought to myself, "I am surrounded by people who have lived three times longer than I and they have probably seen and experienced far more than I ever will, collectively. Yet, they were still all smiles." This really had a lasting impression on me.
Once the meal prayer was given, it was time to eat!! Everything was INCREDIBLE. The photos do not do the food justice. Everything was so fresh and well cooked. They offered fresh fruit, roast beef, pasta, salmon, omelets, etc. The staff was on the ball with ensuring everything was well stocked and running smoothly. I guess you're wondering if I got to partake? A top secret photographer perk: we get to eat. Events, weddings..usually I don't even have to mention it! People insist! (Plus no one wants photos of their guests mid-chew) So I get to sit down and have a little break. The food, service and event was so lovely. They had guest speakers and donations were given in honor of passed residents. It was all so lovely. Doc, was our guest of honor this particular day. He was so kind and funny! I enjoyed getting to know him and meeting his family. I hope you enjoy just a peek of the photos from the event. Happy Monday friends!
