This was the second year our sweet friends hosted an Easter party, and this year was just as lovely as the last! I promised myself that I would not pull out the camera when I realized I’d left my back-up in the back seat, but I only made it halfway through the party before snapping away. I tried… it was a battle… I lost. And I am glad I did!
[The above activity was “confetti eggs” – an Easter tradition this fam shared with us all!]
She melts my heart. 🙂
I love spring!
Sunday brought the annual Academy Awards Gala in Austin benefiting LifeWorks. The event took place at Austin Hilton downtown, and Kennedy Creative was the event designer for all of the the fabulous you see below!
The front entrance:
The reception and silent auction took place in two themed studios. This safari room included a life size zebra statue (a picture favorite throughout the evening), canopy style lounge, and a stone bar among other details!
The next studio was themed chocolat. A fountain and glass vases filled with small chocolates were my two favorite features in this studio.
A wide view of the ballroom:
Checking in the guests:
The two studios were divided with this beautiful fabric. It was just dreamy!
Executive director Susan McDowell delivering a speech:
And here is the Lifeworks development team. What a good looking bunch!
Thank you, Lifeworks, for allowing me to share in this event with you and for all you do for our city!
Saturday brought a super hero birthday party for two adorable little boys! The day was spent at WAYA tumbling, jumping, and balancing away!
What’s better than cupcakes on a parachute?
And what’s better than singing happy birthday underneath the parachute?
The birthday boys!
And every super hero needs a cape – what a great favor!
I’ve had a few requests that I add more wedding pictures to the blog since I’ve yet to update the weddings section on my website. After this weekend, I will have four weddings to add to the site! Until then, here are a few more from Leslie and Tim’s wedding a couple weeks ago. Thanks for looking, and thanks for the requests!
I love this… this was after one of the toast speakers thanked the groom for his service overseas.
I was glad that in the last ten minutes I was there, lots of dancing went on. Imagine my missing this shot!
