Things are certainly staying hot in August. I have been shooting so many different disciplines lately that it was a very nice “homecoming” of sorts to get back to the Highgrove in Fuquay-Varina, NC for their fabulous wedding client tasting event. Now, before someone wisecracks asking how the clients tasted, this was a tasting FOR the clients, not OF the clients. :)
The Highgrove is a beautiful historic home that sits atop a hill overlooking a lake. With a beautiful arbor and lawn large enough for 120 or so people, the Highgrove is a perfect places for a southern outdoor wedding. With all of their wonderful food prepared and cooked on-site, any change I get to visit the Highgrove is one I certainly do not want to miss.
This years tasting at the Highgrove featured quite a few different stations featuring wine, appetizer, dinner and dessert offerings for wedding clients. The tasting is a great opportunity for me, as a wedding photographer, to meet future clients of the Highgrove, possibly some who are in need of a photographer, as well as see how extraordinarily talented they are with putting on a larger event. When I have a wedding at the Highgrove, many times I am too busy to really appreciate the class, style and elegance exuded by their property and entire staff. I want to thank Vicki, Roxanna and the entire Highgrove staff for their hospitality! Dinner was, of course, terrific and I have some wonderful photos to share!
