February is awards show season! Triangle NACE is an organization of event professionals who know how to have a good time.
NACE loves a theme and this year's theme was Gone with the Wind. There are so many things I adore about that film and I always cry when Mellie dies. (I hope I didn't just ruin it for you)
When I walked into VIP Formal Wear for the tux, I told Mimi that I was attending a gala that would have a "vintage vibe" about it. She said, "Like 1920s?" I said "More like 1860s." "Whoa, Thant's going back a bit, but I have just the thing." Yes she did. Waist coat, ascot. I was dressed up like a million dollar trooper. (you finish the song from there)
This year I was in the running for two different categories. One was for photography, (duh) and the other was a joint entry with Southern Bride and Groom for best published editorial for the flower spread we produced together.
Spoiler alert! I didn't win the photography category, that honor went to my friend Robin Lin, but I TOTALLY DID WIN in the published editorial category! I got a cool crystal trophy! Here's a photo of the whole team. High fives all around!
