As you drive north on Allisonville Road (well, our direction was north), we pulled into the parking lot of the We Do “business district”. As we pulled in we saw our host, Bob Ridge of Indy Visual, doing some final touches for the party atmosphere. With Jim Cerone on the grill (yum on the dogs, Jim), we enjoyed the great music of the Jessica Patterson Trio. The “unplugged” versions were wonderful. I knew they had a winner when they played Rhiannon.
Sunny Moon and Sandi Brown were meeting and greeting and waiting for the festivities to “officially” begin. Before we ate that first dog, we toured the suites with our candy bags and filled them to the brim. I think my Emily’s bag was much heavier than mine. However, the children in attendance really hung around the candy trays. I feel sorry for the parents, especially one Tiffany Stoner, who would have to tuck them in later. Oh, my.
So many of my friends were there that I may fail to name some, so oops right now: Tonya Shadoan, Jen Swathwood, Jason Ryan, Jill Sowder, Kelly Oswalt, Leslie Jones, Tanya Marshall, Julie Branch, Chris La Mar, Suz Haire, Joslyn Crowe (I missed John), Ryan & Stacey Hendrickson, Jen Hanshew, Dee Haddad, Kelly Robertson, Vaso Mikic, Laura Lim, Lee Johnson, Kristin Hornberger, Brian Whitis, and some others. I won’t purposely forget anyone. Older brain….really!
We enjoyed the party and our friends and can’t wait for another opportunity to join the great ones of weddings and events. Our own Bello Romance Photography world enjoys meeting with and hearing greatness shared, although today was just a party.
Thanks, Bob and all the gang, for opening up your We Do hearts for the rest of us.
