Over the course of two days, friends and family came out to celebrate Amalia’s first communion, and let me tell you: this family knows how to have a good time! Amalia’s closest friends and family attended the communion itself, and everyone reconvened in the parking lot for some photos together before the reception on the following day. Every last detail of this party was stunning: the food was absolutely decadent, the music got everyone up and dancing, the ice cream bar and cake cured any sweet tooth in the house, and overall, everyone who joined (of all ages at that) had a great afternoon. What a fantastic way for me to spend my weekend.

And here’s the reception! We got to the venue an hour early for some portrait shots and for me to grab some setting details before the party began.
