Now that the days are officially longer and warmer, I decided to post these images from a southern debutante-themed high school graduation party I shot last year. Hosted at a stunning Hillsborough residence, it was perfection in a summer evening. There were three “debutante” girls who hosted, and these gals and their moms know how to throw a party! Everyone came dressed to the nines in southern-inspired seersucker and sundresses. There was plenty of space for mingling while enjoying a view of the bay, munching on hors d’oeuvres, and sipping lemonade served in mason jars. Carnival-style games allowed the guys to show off for the ladies. A bluegrass band completed the ambience as the graduates and their parents enjoyed an alfresco dinner of fried chicken and fixings. The event was charming, fun, and family-friendly. Enjoy the pictures!
