I was lucky enough to be recommended by another local photographer to cover a baby shower at Felina right here in Ridgewood. Since eating at Felina shortly after it opened I dreamt about photographing events there once their big event space was up and running. Little did I know that they also held events in the restaurant during the day before dinner service. I walked in on a recent Saturday to see the most gorgeous baby shower set up! Every detail was stunning and so well thought out. Being a lover of storytelling, I was in heaven! An Italian family, celebrating at a fabulous Italian restaurant with tiny jars of olive oil as place cards and a dessert table full of delicious Italian pastries and candies…all these things added up to a true shower of love, for both mama and baby-to be. Best part? The entire luncheon was planned by the mom-to-be’s sister. If I were to get married again (ok, renew my vows) I know which party planner I would call @agc_events. I hope you enjoy looking through these images from a beautiful September afternoon. And if you ever need someone to document your special event, I hope you will remember me.
