Awesome Wife of the Year Award

Awesome Wife of the Year Award

                Last month Becky and I were hired by one of our favorite clients (yes we do have favorites - see the previous post) to photograph a surprise party she was throwing for her husband's 50th birthday party. Let me just tell you this: Andrea wins some serious "awesome wife of the year" points for this party. Not because it was over the top. Not because it was held at a glamorous banquet hall. Not because she planned the party to wow her guests. It was pure awesome because she planned it just for Bob.

                A Jack Daniels themed Beefsteak Dinner. Yes.

                Each table was decorated with empty bottles of different kinds of Jack, in a black and silver theme. Of course there was a full bottle of Jack on the drinks table, complete with Jack Daniels swizzle sticks and napkins (with an excellent quote by the way).

                Of course it was extra fun when the birthday boy arrived -- they had actually managed to make it a surprise! Bob even teared up a little as their two year old son ran into his arms while friends and family cheered and shouted.

                Nemo the Pez dispenser made another appearance here to make sure to get the two year old to look at the camera and smile. It wasn't before long we were questioning the adults on if they needed Nemo to dance around the camera for them too!

                Becky had never been to a beefsteak dinner before, so I had to explain to her what was so special and exciting about it (I nearly jumped for joy when Andrea told me about it). Partway through the meal Becky looked around the room and asked me why no one was eating the bread with the steak because it was delicious. I explained that it was tradition to build towers and monuments at each table with the bread. When she asked why, all I could answer was "because this is a meal invented by men, and the bread fills you up too fast."

                Even the cake was shaped like a bottle of Jack, with a birthday twist on the label

                Jack themed presents lined the gift table, including a hearty gift basket, a bottle of Sinatra signature Jack, a bottle of Winter Jack, and some Jack Daniels Fire Department apparel. The most interesting gift however was the ring Andrea gave him that had an inlay of a band of wood from a casket of Jack, which you can see in the awesome picture Becky got.

                A fun night, with some fun people - Becky and I even spent some time running around with the little one to get some more fun photos of him playing.
