I took everything in as I walked around, trying to capture the energy and liveliness with the camera I carried in my hands. I tried a cotton candy cocktail and spun the wheel, winning a voucher for the night's signature drink (score!).
It was pretty difficult to get really good shots, I have to be honest. The lighting was a bit dark and stupid me forgot my flash at home but I made the best of it.
From 7:00 to 8:00 was a cocktail hour and then we all were ushered into the auditorium where we got to see a preview of the upcoming musical "Big Fish," which is being shown at Willow Valley Communities, the same location that was hosting the event. All of the characters were the same ones that helped entertain the guests during cocktail hour. The preview was amazing and I would be incredibly surprised if the musical did not do well its featured weekend.
After the preview, dessert was served. I hung around a little longer, got a few more shots of the event and then headed home. Sadly being a college student, I had plenty of homework waiting to get done.
Even though I was not there very long and I was technically working, I had such a great time and I cannot wait for the next event.
Here are a few photos:
