Oh, what a night!

I was lucky enough to photograph Jimmy and Lynn Hayes’ holiday party at their gorgeous Atlanta home earlier this month. Jimmy, CEO of Cox Enterprises, and wife Lynn treated guests to an evening replete with holiday spirit and sparkle galore. Among the guests in attendance were Cox executives Doug Franklin and Sandy Schwartz, as well as many of the Hayes’ friends from both Atlanta and St. Petersburg, Florida.

Lynn is known for decorating elaborately for the holidays, and this year proved to be no exception. Guests were greeted by the glow of a beautiful Christmas tree in the grand entry of the home.

The stunner you see above was only the first of many—so many, in fact, that partygoers were asked to guess the number of trees gracing the home’s expansive interior.
Lynn used nearly every corner and surface of the home to create beautiful holiday displays. We loved the combination of elegance with playful whimsy.

Kudos to Bold American Events & Catering for presenting a buffet that offered both a feast for the eyes as well as a host of savory and sweet bites sure to satisfy real appetites.

In a fun twist, the hosts invited guests to burn off the delicious refreshments with some time on the dance floor. Everyone was treated to performances by dance instructors from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Sarasota, FL, and to a ballroom dance lesson.
I count this party among the many gifts I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy this holiday season. Thank you, Jimmy and Lynn, from all of us at Atlanta Event Photography!
