New York Marble Cemetery Garden Party

New York Marble Cemetery Garden Party hosted by Atlas Obscura by NYC photojournalist, Kelly Williams

I’m doing a little bit of catch up today, and wanted to share with you photos from this past weekend’s New York Marble Cemetery Garden Party, hosted by the New York Obscura Society.  The Victorian-themed party involved a wealth of odd and historically-accurate activities, including an absinthe tasting, cemetery talk, flower crown workshop, butterfly pinning demonstration, croquet game, cello performance, gothic-themed baked goods, and demonstrations by the New York Stereoscopic Association and a gramophone DJ.

Gettin’ Down on the Dance Floor at an Allegria Hotel Party

Dancing at an Allegria Hotel party by NYC event photojournalist, Kelly Williams

Last night the Charles family threw one heck of a party in Long Beach to celebrate the 45th wedding anniversary of Bovin and Hermelyn.  This Allegria Hotel party came complete with a beautiful beachside setting, DJ, photo booth, and even a fog machine for the couple’s first dance.  Friends and family surrounded the couple as their daughters gave a touching toast followed by a slideshow of photos from the couple’s wedding ceremony.  (It was fascinating for me to see how much wedding photography has changed since 1970!)  Afterwards, Bovin and Hermelyn cut their cake and each exchanged beautiful rings to mark the occasion.  By the end of the evening everyone was on the dance floor.  Love was the groove that had this group partying all night long.  Enjoy the photos!
