Venue: Private Home
Being a Beaufortonian, the Lafayette Gala was very much on my radar. A major fundraising event for the Historic Beaufort Foundation, this long standing soirée is always a big to-do for the sleepy, seaside town. When my dear friend from high school approached me to be a part of it, I jumped at the opportunity. Not only was it a wonderful event for my hometown, but it was being hosted in a famed, historic property that I had long admired. So, I hit the ground running, visiting the home (under renovation still), working with the team to select rentals, book the band and execute the layout, and of course, design the springtime blooms. When that May day rolled around, it was warm with a sea breeze in the air. Team Vero set the stage along the marshes of the Beaufort River, and looked on as guests reveled in the opulence of the South Carolina coast.
