Donald and I had an absolute ball photographing Mayor Brian P. Sullivan’s 2nd term Inauguration Ball on Saturday, January 27, 2018! (see what we did there?). It was an evening of amazing food and service, thanks to Tori Denton and the entire Tekoa super tea; beautiful decor, thanks to a small-but-mighty volunteer army led by Lisa McMahon; and serious runway glitz and glamor attire, thanks to all in attendance! (seriously, those shoes tho!).
Mayor Sullivan’s message of Building a Bridge to Success was the theme of his brief but heartfelt address and it was echoed visually, through imagery and thought-provoking quotes placed around the venue. What was most apparent in the room was that Mayor Sullivan is greatly admired and a highly respected leader. We’re guessing that it’s not often that a State Representative and a Senator from both sides of the aisle are seen together celebrating the inauguration of their city’s mayor after they have both devoted that same afternoon jumping into icy cold water to aid in raising funds for the city’s Children’s Museum. What an amazing gesture of support for the mayor and for the City of Westfield. Thank you for all you do for Westfield Senator Humason and Representative Velis!
On a personal note, we’d like to thank Eric Moller for recommending us to capture the inauguration ball festivities. We were truly honored to have been considered and chosen to document this important event. We sincerely appreciate your support of our business. Thank you also to Donna Shibley who pinch hit for us on a moments notice AND for thinking to ask if I was wearing a particular wrap that we both own. I was. She changed her wrap. She’s a true friend.
Until next time…Enjoy the photo’s!
