I am very happy to share with you the pictures of this beautiful party. And from this publication I will begin to tell you more about each event we have covered. Many would say that the images speak for themselves, but for me; the magic of a photograph (which freezes a moment forever) makes that image; relive in our minds and hearts, good times with details; of the experience that happened before, during and after that moment.
For me this event was very special; because it was my first time sharing with the Portuguese community and I have to confess that I loved it! They are very cheerful and familiar people! I enjoyed photographing this special day in the life of Alexandra, not only because it is a beautiful girl, elegant and sophisticated demeanor, but also the details they had in their celebration.
They had the special presentation of the Group Bombos Casa do Minho from Newark, NJ, and Alexandra with her mother joined them in their participation. It was an awesome show … actually very nice. I also loved seeing the guests run their typical dances with such joy.
A peculiar detail is that the birthday girl, give lighted candles; to people who are very special to her, and then was turning them off (that’s something different from what I’ve seen it done in other nationalities).
Something to note is that the food was delicious!,and was in charge for Valencia Restaurant & Catering. The emotional detail of the night (besides the speech of her grandmother), was the beautiful affection expressed between Alexandra and her brother, that touched my heart (I am a mother of two children) I found it really beautiful.
Thank you very much Alexandra, and your family, for letting usto be part of this great andunforgettable event.
