Welcome to Modern Romance's first company year-end party! We were SO excited to have our own first year-end company party. It was meant to be a Christmas party but James and Lilly were going to be out of town so we decided to have it earlier. I had so much fun planning this, buying the prizes, printing the little things, and checking out the venues and I have to say, event planning is fun but could be a little stressful, too (hey, we're a photo + video studio after-all ha ha!). But seeing all the details coming together feels amazing. I love our #morofamily <3
We have our own hashtag #moroparty2014 Let's get social!
We also had dress code - "anything but black!". For those that know us, we ALWAYS wear all black (from shirt, to pants, all the way to shoes and socks). So of course for the first time being together at once, we did not want anyone to wear black. Don't you love dress codes. :P
Thanks to Andy and Gary setting up our "Red Carpet Entrance Without the Carpet" hehe
Cedric here prepping for the behind the scene photos and all the weddings we have done in the past years.
Seating arrangement was fun, although I totally looked quite angry here... (?)
Party with wine and prizes!
Minimal decor all day! A little Christmas touch but not crazy. (thanks to Steph from Balconi Floral for the flowers I got at the workshop just the night before! xoxo)!
Woohoo, all the minions and their plus ones started to arrive, walking through that "red carpet but no carpet" little entrance.
What is a party without an ice breaker? Knowing all the group games from my summer camps days made it tough because many of the games were definitely too "cute" to play with a bunch of adults! I decided to go for something simpler and slightly awkward - Death by Shaking (or some called "Murderer").
There was ice breaker then self introduction. Always fun for awkward times.. :P
Guess what we were looking at ...? BTS and more BTS!
I had prepared a little surprise for the minions :D I wanted to recognize the hard working teammates and add a little humor to something that they could take home with. So I thought, hey why not a little award? Each award certificate has something funny with their title and what they are good at (or not good at) and we will keep those as secrets :P
And... of course we had prize draw! I was so excited to do this, always fun to see people's reactions to what they get :P
And of course our traditional group photo session!!!
See all the photos here - Photo Slideshow =)
Thanks to Edward L. for being our photographer of the night. It was definitely fun to hire another photographer to photograph a bunch of photographers and videographers. :D
