Just before the Christmas weekend I drove up to Zorvino Vineyards in Sandown, New Hampshire to photograph a 120-person surprise birthday party for Patti. It was her 60th, and boy did she have a huge crowd of great friends, family – and great dancers! – to help her celebrate!
It was just like shooting a wedding, minus the vows, but including beautiful favors, touching speeches, a gorgeous cake, and a full dance floor!
Each guest was encouraged to bring an ornament for Patti, and it was so cute overhearing the reasoning behind each one :-)
Before dinner, everyone took a chance to tour the winery downstairs and sip some vino… including the photographer! Zorvino has a great team of wine enthusiasts behind it, and I enjoyed learning a bit and taking a few bottles home for the upcoming holidays. This is absolutely an amazing wedding venue to seek out in New Hampshire!
Beautiful favors made by Patti’s son’s mother-in-law… so let’s call them sisters-in-law!
Lots of fun on the dance floor, thanks to DJ Dave Herman!
