After emailing back and forth for a few days, I had the pleasure of meeting Lenny Williams of The Garden Party for lunch on Friday. I’ve been trying to network with my fellow wedding professionals to learn about their businesses and for general camaraderie in the field. And I just like meeting people.
From our first hello, Lenny and I chit-chatted like old friends. None of the usual getting-to-know-you awkward silences. She’s a fellow tree-hugger without being overbearing about it. She’s sweet and friendly and warm, and I can’t imagine anyone meeting her and not being instantly comfortable around her.
After lunch at Curly’s Vegetarian Lunch we walked around and I took some pictures of her for her currently head shot-less website. Head shots with her were so much fun, that we just kept walking around, chatting and shooting. These are my favorites.
See? Warm, friendly, huggable. Thanks Lenny!
