A Midsummer's Eve, Niagara Symphony Garden Party

I was asked to come back and photograph this year's annual NSO Garden Party held at the home of Harriet (Sis) Bunting Weld in Niagara on the Lake. The weather was superb for an event like this and as fundraisers go this was a bit more upscale. The master of ceremonies was Christopher Newton (former artistic director of Shaw Festival) and the dinner was by Chef Tony DeLuca. The evening's auctioneer was the incredible Christopher Blake, he was so funny and kept things moving along. Have a look and see who you recognize. -RN
