Pumpkin Tea Soiree

As part of her annual Pumpkin Tea weekend, Stephanie hosted a candlelit soiree the evening before. For once, I wasn’t working on that day, which meant I could attend! Plus, it was one of the first outings for our new Nikon D7500 camera and its 16-80mm f2.8-4 lens. Mike and I are still learning how to get the most out of them, and this event was good practice in low light.

Everyone and everything looked so magical by candlelight.

Maggie‘s outfit had such nice sparkle, with her jewelry and embroidered gown.

Jessica looked so elegant.

Mike wore his tried and true wool tailcoat and maroon waistcoat. I had planned on making him a new waistcoat, but that didn’t happen.

Ashley‘s dress really glowed in the candlelight.

Rebecca was attending her first regency event. Her dress came out great! (I made her necklace and earrings using some beautiful pearls she provided.)
