One of the events that my boyfriend looks forward to every year is the ISES Gala. I really do too, but he absolutely loves it. It is a night where all the best local vendors come together and put on the party of the year.

That's just the cocktail hour. You are then taken into an area for a three course meal before dessert and dancing. This year's party trumped all the previous gala's I had been to by far.
The theme was the Roaring 20's, and everyone was decked out in their pearls, fidoras and feather boas. They carried this simple theme completely through the entire event from the time you walked in up until the late night casino. We had a blast with some great industry friends; Andrew from Andrew Weeks Photography, Janae from Janae Shields Photography, Gabby from Cake Coquette and Kathy from Well Rehearsed. I took some pictures, (obviously need to get a better camera), but here are some that came out somewhat decent:
