Bif’s 30th Birthday Party

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful 30th birthday party at the Plainfield Country Club.  The chilly fall evening kicked off with a lively cocktail hour beside a roaring fire, followed by dinner and dancing to a fabulous band in the candlelit ballroom.  The gorgeous cupcakes were created by Gigi’s Cupcakes and arranged with artistic whimsy.  I always love to photograph details and this party did not disappoint!  The birthday boy’s wife, Allie, created custom napkins, trivia cards, drink stirrers, and cupcake toppers, along with personalized water bottles and coozies as party favors.  Best of all was the life sized cardboard cut out of her husband (playing croquet) that greeted everyone at the front door.  I loved the details even more because they matched my favorite colors- navy and kelly green.  I’ve used that crisp color combination at my wedding, as well as in my business branding and my daughter’s nursery!  Allie and Bif, it was wonderful to meet all of your family and friends and capture a great evening.  Welcome to 30!
