Last weekend was my 7th annual Beaux Arts Ball! It was Brad's 5th, because I've been dragging him along with me since the year we were engaged. Haha.
The Beaux Arts Ball happens every year at Baton Rouge Little Theater, and it's to honor the volunteers from the past season. There's mingling, then an awards ceremony where they give awards for things like "best actress in a play", "best supporting actress in a musical", "best backstage volunteer", "best actor in a comedy", etc. We act like it's such a HUGE DEAL, when really it's not haha. I mean...it's community theater, y'all. Not the Academy Awards. But even though we know that, we still cross our fingers that our favorites will win. :)
They also have a parody & other fun stuff during the ceremony. And then there's catered food, dancing, and more mingling! It's a very fun night. I love it!
So this year was a little crazy. Brad had to play in a wedding at 6:00. The mingling at the ball starts at 7:00, but the ceremony thing starts at 7:45. Brad road with his sister to the church where he was playing. I had a friend come to my house to do my hair. Well, she was a little late. So when it was time for me to pick Brad up at the church, i wasn't even out of my house yet! Yikes! His sister ended up dropping him off at the theater! So he got there without me. He mingled without me. Haha. Which...isn't really his style. He'd rather be home, i know. I mean, he enjoys himself, but. Yeah. So he was there by his lonesome for awhile. And he was SUCH a great sport about it!
I finally arrived. JUST in time for the ceremony (right after it started! ack! but it was okay!). We had an amazing night! Seriously... i think this was my most favorite Beaux Arts Ball. ;) Can't wait til next year!
And now... I shall overload you with pictures!
So... I guess that's enough of that! Although I will have to do a whole separate post of my favorite photo booth shots! ;)
LOVE the Beaux Arts Ball. Can't wait till next year!
