Lodge at Welch Allyn Group Tasting 2013

On Friday I had a great time photographing the Lodge's group tasting--the term 'tasting' is really misleading since they basically put on a full-blown reception for dozens of their 2013 and 2014 couples--about 130 in all. It was memorable not just for all the tasty food but also due to the great vendors they brought in to pull off the elaborate event. Unbelievable lighting design was provided by Visa Versa Entertainment, Michael Cheney from the Patisserie provided delectable sweets, Backyard Garden Florist showed off their floral style, and Young Explosives Corporation put on a $3000.00 fireworks show at the end of the evening! I also had the pleasure of meeting Lauren Buerkle Ciciarelli with Stella and Dot Jewelry, she was there showing off very stylish baubles great for your wedding day or for any 'ole day (next time I promise to shoot your jewels and shop less)! Visa Versa Entertainment can light the h*ll out of a place.
