The Sheaffers 50th Anniversary

I was contacted by Sheri Brainski with Lighthearted Events to photograph a 50th Anniversary for Dr. and Mrs. Sheaffer. The event was at the Yorktowne Hotel and they had no idea that their kids created such a wonderful event for them. Dr. and Mrs. Sheaffer actaully had their reception at the Yorktowne 50 years ago. They came into a small room that was set up for an hors d'oeuvres and were shocked into tears to see all of their family and friends from across the country. Figuring on just a small dinner they were expecting that or what came next. They were then shuffled down the hall to another, larger, room that was decked to the 9's. It was beautiful as you'll see. I was so happy to be able to photograph this event for them. Congratulations on 50 years!

A beautiful cake in a beautiful room at the Yorktowne Hotel.

Wraps on some Hersheys chocolate bars. Golden of course.

The tables at the Yorktowne looked spectacular! Good job Sheri!

The room was simply amazing!

A look of shock and surprise!

She was brought to tears.

Dr. Sheaffer had a great laugh after such a great surprise.

Then the real waterworks started after they were brought into the main room.

What a large great looking family!

A great looking couple, you can still see the love in their eyes for each other.

Kids chillin' on some steps outside the room.

The original wedding party. I had to sit the "flower girls" down to get them in. They grew up a bit since the wedding.

Their "First" dance.

Someone elses "First" dance?

The kids took over the dance floor after dinner.

Then the bride got into the fun.

Cutting that beautiful cake.

Sealed the ending with a kiss.
