Paige’s 21st

Back in December, I photographed the most beautiful 21st birthday party that ever was!

I first met Paige a few years ago when I assisted shooting her brother’s wedding, so I was naturally delighted when Katie (Paige’s sister in law and stylist extraordinaire!) asked if I was interested in heading up the coast for the evening to photograph the party!

When I arrived, I was greeted with details upon details. It was styled to perfection!

Paige is an avid reader and vintage book collector, so the whole party was styled around the theme. From the place tags, to the centerpieces, to the paper flowers adorning the cake and dessert buffet.

As a tea drinker myself, I was in love with the tea station!

The candles and fairy lights provided the perfect ambiance for a summer night outside.
