I was extremely honored to recently attend and photograph something that...I had never heard of before???
Yes, one of my magnificent couples from June 2013, Erin and Orlando, invited me to what they had called a gender announcement party. Now, while I was highly intrigued, I had no idea what Erin was talking about lol! But I was more than ecstatic to say YES and be there for them!! So, what do we do when we don't know something?...ask "GOOGLE" of course! ;-)
I knew that they were happily expecting their first baby but I had no clue that this new type of party was actually "A THING".
So, let me clarify what I am talking about. Basically...Erin and Orlando had an ultrasound about a week before the party. Once the ultrasound was complete, the technician wrote inside a card what the sex of their baby was, discreatly tucked it inside an envelope and gave the card to the couple. They then delivered the card to her aunt who was planning the party. This allowed her aunt to plan the party without telling the anxiously awaiting parents-to-be and all family members to keep them in suspense until the reveal.
Now, I am not sure about you...but I don't know if I could have made it a week without stalking my aunt's house for that envelope or anything link or blue! Or better yet, looking inside the envelope on the way to her house!! But one week later in front of an intimate group of family and friends, they were finally about to find out.
Everyone gathered together at her aunt's home to find out if Erin and Orlando were having a BOY or a GIRL! So..which was it you ask? TEAM MUSTACHE or TEAM PINK? Check it out!! By far the coolest and most creative way to find out the gender of your child and celebrate their upcoming birth!
Congratulations Erin and Orlando!! Your wedding was amazing and beautiful and now your little Baby B! I can't wait til this fall!
TEAM PINK for the win!! Its a GIRL!! Congratulations you guys! I know you will be remarkable parents!!!
