Our party was fancy and fun just like we planned... these shots are from right before the guests arrived. I had Krystal flip on the big lights so I could get a few halfway decent photos, then we flipped off the lights just as the first guests walked through the door and all they saw was a candlelit wonderland. It was beautiful. Even though the paper chain kept falling in random places and we'd just tape it to the whatever wall was nearest. It started out beautifully looped all across the living room and ended the night taped in haphazard loopes on each wall. But that just added character, right? Right. Lots of wine. Lots of (very) stinky cheese. Lots of friends. Lots of pretty heels, dresses and smart suits.
