WHA Holiday Party {Photo Booth}

December 12th, 2010
Filed under: Photo Booth

I’m so excited to share this post with you! We have OFFICIALLY started offering photo booths as part of SMP! We did our first full blown, holy moly booth on Friday at La Rivage for Western Health Advantage’s annual holiday party. I have photographed WHA events before, but having the photo booth there made everything SO MUCH FUN! Here are some of my most favorite pictures (and quite a few familiar faces!)
Of course, I couldn’t resist the gravitational pull of the photo booth either… especially with a former bride and my BFF! Thank you WHA for such a ROCKING party, and for letting SMP be a part of it! Photo booths are SO MUCH FUN! We are so excited to be offering them for our wedding clients as well as for private parties! Let the good times ROLL!!! ;)

julia and tom {25th anniversary party}

Julia and Tom are just two of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. They celebrated thier 25th wedding anniversary this year and did so in style. They traveled to Hawaii to renew their vows and then came back home and had a big, beautiful party at The Citizen Hotel. Let me say here and now, it was THE best party I have EVER been to! I am so grateful Dustin and I got to be a part of this celebration!

Isn’t this cake STUNNING??

It was most definitely a night full of surprises. Tom and Julia’s oldest daughter, Ashleigh, had told her parents she wouldn’t be able to make the party but just because you tell them something like that doesn’t mean it’s actually true. Ashleigh decided to surprise her parents by dressing up as a waitress. They honestly didn’t recognize her for almost 30 seconds. It was fabulous!

Then the party really got started! It was wonderful to be with this group of people who have known and loved Julia and Tom for YEARS! And it’s obvious why they’re friends with this great group: THEY ALL KNOW HOW TO PARTY!

Another surprise during the night was just for Tom. Let’s say Tom is no fan of the Burger King King. So of course, the King HAD to make an appearance at the party!

Julia and Tom! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your celebration. We love you guys and hope you have 25 more years of happiness together. Check out the SLIDESHOW HERE or in the box below.

Kristin’s Grand Opening {personal/event}

October 1st, 2009
Filed under: Event Shoots, Personal

As many of you know, my sister Kristin is a financial genius. She is super smart about all things finance and really, she always has been. I mean, she had a checking account when she was 16. I think I was like 19 before I got around to doing that. It is her smarts that lead her to a degree in finance and a job with Edward Jones. She’s been with Edward Jones for over two years and this spring opened her own office. We FINALLY had her grand opening last week and it was a success!

The Roseville Chamber of Commerce came out for her official ribbon cutting. Lauren was mesmerized by the giant scissors.

The whole day was a party! From beginning to end it was a celebration of Kristin’s success and I am really, really proud of her. It was lovely to see so many people come out and support her.

So! If you’re in the market for some financial advise you should definitely check Kristin and her super cool office out. Congratulations Kristin!!
