The Benny Awards: Showtime! (1 of 2)

Hey everybody!
Each day seems to get better and better doesn't it?! I am in crazy love with all this Benny stuff! Today, I wanna toss up some images from the show itself. After the red carpet (see yesterday's post), our wonderful guests walked in to Jenessa's incredible creation:

Music was pumpin' from the Rudisill brothers, aka Groove Productions:

The Event Group had their unique desserts out for our chewing pleasure ;)
The Gourmet Cheescake bar (you could add all sorts of scrumptious toppings)...

Mousse shots: Key Lime, Peach, and Chocolate

They also had some old school milk and cookies, as well as Apple Pie Shooters with Sparkling Apple Cider. Cool, right?!
The Bar was definitely one of my favorite parts. Here is Maggie and Austin deciding on a Benfield Breeze (our signature drink)

And Felicia and Candice were doing the same (ahhhh... the days of having to show my id...):

Here's Jenessa chatting with Lauren and Bree's table. Some trivia: Lauren was the first wedding Jenessa and I both worked.

I heart table pics! Jessica and Lauren rocked the cameras all night long!
Kelli and Beau:

Felicia and Candice:

Meridith and Bradley:

Holly and Luke (our big winners of the Couture Album!)

Bree & Donald and Lauren & Dusty:

Here, Brooke and the rest of the room thought I was sooooo funny. :)

One thing that Meredith and I love so much about our work is that we have such great relationships with all our couples! Here I am hugging it out with Lauren while she picked up her "Leading Lady" award.

Also, I have to put this one in because I look so tan. Ha ha ha!

I thought this face I was making was funny. I have absolutely no idea what I was talking about.

And lastly, your hosts for the evening: Dale and Meredith (doesn't Meredith always have the COOLEST earrings?!)

I didn't want to overwhelm with a crazy abundance of images, so I split these into two days. I think I'll do a cool slideshow tomorrow, which will have lots more eye-candy :)

Talk to you soon!
