I had promised a while back that I would share my own post about this beautiful backyard bash with you all, so here it is! I was honored to be chosen by Kristin to be the photographer for her sweet 40th birthday picnic celebration. She invited her closest friends and family to come celebrate with her, and it was truly an afternoon to remember. The party was of course, 2020 friendly, if you know what I mean. The mini picnic tables were all distanced, and hand sanitizer was not lacking anywhere. The party even got featured on Style Me Pretty living, which has been a long time dream of mine as a bay area photographer! And it felt like such a honor too! I’ve always seen that publication and wanted to have something I photographed be featured, and here it is! View the publication here!
The event was not lacking in any small detail. From the beautiful florals to the wooden chargers. From the individual picnic baskets full of treats to the comfy pillow and rugs that made the outdoors so cozy. I would expect nothing less from Kristan herself, who is a wedding planner. Or from Aldente events, who put it all together. I truly was a darling picnic! Everyone who attended was having such a great time, it had been so long since so many of us have celebrated together. It seems as though the celebrations we get to attend now seem even more special. It is sweet to be able to give air hugs, and just see people in person rather than over screens!
Even though i’m no longer an event photographer, I do truly love photographing some events here and there. This sweet one was a great reminder to me that it is magical when it all comes together. And it also reminded me how much I love little details that are oh so pretty.
