It was no ordinary Wednesday last week at the Bee and Thistle Inn. We were lucky enough to be the venue for the “American Elegance” photo shoot that made it in to the pages of “Gala” magazine in September and to commemorate the amazing spread we decided to throw a soiree! To our delight, Guest of honor, and senior editor of “Gala” magazine and www.elegala.com, Kristin Burgess stayed the evening and graciously supplied magazines to all our guests. All of the featured vendors of the shoot were in attendance- Beth Chapman and friends from The White Dress by the Shore, Dana Bartone, Carla Ten Eyck Photography, Nicole Michele from Coral Pheasant Stationary + Design, Hope from A Little Imagination Cakes, Candace Coppola from Jubilee Events and Tony Palmieri from Datura: A Modern Garden.

As ‘Love Potion #9’ cocktails were being shaken at the bar, are guests mingled and got on their to the ‘String of Pearls’ orchestra. The gowns that were worn for the shoot were proudly on display, and guests got to see more of the images that Carla Ten Eyck provided.  As favors, Joyce from ‘The Joy of Light’ was kind enough to give us beautiful bee embossed matchbooks to give to our guests.  Thank you to all who attended!
