To say that the entire community is excited about the opening of the Grand Bohemian would be an understatement. We were absolutely thrilled to be apart of this amazing new project and it is such an awesome addition to the city! Last night we had the opportunity to photograph one of the many events that the Grand Bohemian is hosting to celebrate their opening. Christopher Confero, AG Lighting and Hothouse Designs transformed the already majestic ballroom into lush paradise of greens and golds. Throughout the night, guest mingled, dined and were treated to a surprise performance by American Idol winner and Alabama native, Taylor Hicks. Here are a few of our favorite photos and make sure a visit to the Grand Bohemian is somewhere in your near future!
We had so much fun photographing Tricia's birthday party! Her husband surprised her with this French-inspired night in honor of her big day. Friends and family of the birthday girl helped her celebrate while enjoying music, dancing, and delicious food, of course! Kathy G and Company served a mouth-watering array of French cuisine while the Full Circle Venue was transformed into a scene straight from a glamorous Parisian nightclub. Thanks to Jackie Rowell and Hothouse Designs, the party was a total success! We hope Tricia had as much fun as we did on her special night.
The Birmingham Zoo held their annual Zoo Gala this past Friday night. The event was held in it's signature location, Trails of Africa. Thanks to The Major Event, everything was perfectly planned and beautiful! Andy Hopper of KG Designs was commissioned to provide the florals and decor. With colorful lanterns and cozy seating areas, Andy really outdid himself for this year's event. AG Lighting added a different touch for the Gala this year, a digital screen that was the focal point of the entire night. After the silent auction guests were entertained by live music and wonderful food provided by Kathy G and Company! Since it was the Birmingham Zoo's 60th anniversary, an amazing cake was provided by Barb's. The Zoo Gala has been the talk of the town this entire week and we're so excited that the event was once again a huge success! We can't wait to see all the surprises next year's event has in store!
We always look forward to photographing one of the most spectacular events in the city, the Alabama Ballet Pointe Ball. Each year, we're treated to amazing food, great music and a signature performance from a few of the company members. The event was held at The Club, a venue that's provides the best backdrop for an entertaining and fun-filled night. After dinner, guests were treated to champagne and dessert while they awaited the best kept secret of the evening; one of the company member's started the after-party with a bang as he gave homage to the 70's with an awesome disco dance. We had such a great time at the Pointe Ball and this is truly and event that we look forward to photographing!
Summer really isn't summer until you've had an amazing tomato salad! Last week, I had the opportunity to photograph a rehearsal dinner where the incomparable Chris Hastings provided an amazing night of culinary delight!
