My cousin Sarah was presented as a Hoover Belle on Sunday and I got to be there.
It was great fun for me. I’ve never seen so many girls in hoops. It was lovely. And here are a few pictures.
The entrance, escorted by her dad:
There was a live jazz band that played while they danced:
This was a cute moment. A little high-five at the end:
Group picture. This is my grandmother, my Aunt Cindy, Sarah, Uncle Dave, and friends:
Sarah’s dress and those roses on the back of her hat were made by Aunt Cindy. So gorgeous:
General good fun:
Sarah was sweet enough to let me drag her outside the ballroom where the light was a little better:
This could be my favorite picture. When I first saw it I was sitting here drinking my coffee. And then I laughed and inhaled it. Hilarity:
And underneath that hoop, adorable monogrammed pantaloons.
Sarah is just beautiful!
Your pictures, of course. As always I'm emotional after viewing -- because they always capture perfectly whatever emotion is present at the time. Breathtaking, unique, insightful, moment-capturing, timeless as always.
But also, I did not know that Ben and Katie had a little sister. :) Sarah must have come along after I sat for them, I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to know her.
And wow about a modern day "coming out party"!! I truly had no idea anyone did this anymore. How WONDERFUL is this? Hoop skirts and all! I'm loving it.
How lucky Sarah is to have a better than professional photographer for a cousin. These will be something she'll treasure forever for sure.
