Let me just say that I have had a posting scheduled for November 5th for at least three weeks, BUT by popular demand, I preempted that posting to bring you today’s posting … it tickles me SO much, and I hope you like it, too!!
On Wednesday night at City View Skytop Restaurant in Downtown Lynchburg I hosted a vendor get together … complete with a beautiful autumn view, delicious hors d’oeuvres and a photo booth done by Capture It Photography.
Let me just tell you that some of these vendors were reluctant to jump into the photo booth, but it is amazing what happens when you start putting boas on guys and hand girls a microphone and a tiara! We had such a wonderful time, and thank you so much to Capture It and City View and to all of the great Hill City Bride vendors. All I can say is … “vendors are people, too” (as you will see below). Enjoy!!
Let me just say, that Brad Bennett (purple boa – Shaking Hands Productions) and Adam Barnes (pink boa – Adam Barnes Fine Art Photography) were VERY reluctant to go first (one of them actually said they were NOT going first), but once boas were thrown over their heads, they quickly changed their minds … it’s true!! The rest of us ladies were having a great time … Katie Lester (shades), Lauren Nutter (tiara – one of my WONDERFUL interns), Emily Hall (pink boa), Rachael Eberle (writer of “Newly Wed“) and I (microphone) loved having fun in front of the camera!!
Another one of our crazy first group … I just HAD to post this b/c Brad was laughing so hard … ha ha!!
Adam gave up his pink boa for a floral lei, and Brad does not look too impressed … LOL!!
Here are Kelly Lesley (blue hat) and Debbie Johnson (red boa) of Flavours Catering … delicious food and more for sure!! They look like they are having a great time.
Jessica Boardman (tiara – Celebration) couldn’t decide between what to wear on her head (as evidenced by the red and blue hats in her hands)! She had a great time posing with the adorable Tara Cofer of Tresca on 8th … one of Lynchburg’s finest venues.
Lovelies Caitlin Smith (pink boa) and Kim Jennings (red boa) of Capture It Photography enjoyed the hot apple cider. I greatly appreciate them coming and setting up the photo booth and taking the photos for us … it added so much to the evening, and it was a lot of fun!
David Duncan (David Duncan Photography) and Michelle Duncan (e&a WED and Church Street Bridal/Church Street Couture) caught a picture before they left … I just had to jump in!
Debbie Johnson (blue boa – Flavours Catering) and Kim Jennings (pink boa – Capture It Photography) are great friends who have lots of fun together … I love this one!
Sabrena Deal (S Carter Studios) and her husband Josh make a great team when it comes to music … hey, at least they play the part well!!
Then Sabrena (veil) and Josh were good sports about dressing up more when they were joined by the sweet Liz Cook (hat – Sincerely, Liz: Photography).
Sabrena and Liz changed it up and struck a pose together … cute!!
More silliness. We had no clue what the other was doing in these photos, which makes me laugh!
What a jam session … ha ha (love those inflatable instruments)!! Allegra (blue hat – Allegra’s Studio), Kasey Forehand (pink boa – Boudoir), James Forehand (who was VERY reluctant but jumped in anyway!!) and I had fun trying to mock play a tune.
Allegra, Kasey, James and I decided to end with a bang!
Good grief … I laughed the entire time I was posting these. We really did have a great time! I think it is fun to see these wedding professionals in a different light … at least it was for me. Enjoy, and thanks to all of the vendors for being such good sports!
*Sigh* and speaking of being good sports, I do NOT want to post this last photo of me, but I did not give my vendors “veto rights” to their photos, so I guess it’s only fair. All I have to say is that the photo booth brings out the crazy in all of us!!
