Congratulations Justin!

Sunday, June 19, 2011
Hawaii Okinawan Center

Justin is my co-worker Iris' nephew. He just graduated from Mid-Pacific Institute and will be heading off to Kansas in the fall to start his freshman year at college. This was one HA-UGE graduation party. I think there were about 500 people there (yikes! I don't even know 500 people!!) to help him celebrate. Here he is with his hard working mom Renee...I have no idea how she pulled this one off!

Justin was selected to an unheard of 3 years All-State baseball team (supposedly the first 3-year recipient from Mid-Pac!). For being such an accomplished athlete, and still a teenager, I was VERY impressed how humble and polite he was. I've met him before but only in passing, so I never really talked to him. When I showed up to the party he approached me to thank me and give me a hug. So cute yah? I had to take pictures of him with all of his guests and he never complained once nor did he seem like he was bored or annoyed. His mom and dad must be very proud...
Renee and her crew made 600 cake pops!! Geez, I guess I can't complain anymore about having to make too many pops!
There was also a candy "bar"
Plus all the favors and centerpieces...

Let's hear it for the bartenders!!
There were waay too many pictures to post so if you want to see the rest of the pics (or look for your own), go here.

Whew, great job! You sure worked hard. My back hurts just looking at the pictures. Da Bruddahs crack me up!

I'm sooo glad it's over. Not half as bad as I expected, I assumed I'd have to be wheeled out of there by the end of the day! I hope I never have to shoot there again! Either that or I hope they do something about the lighting in there!!

Ho, that is one big grad party. That is what you call work. He seems like a nice guy. Great shoots, great job!

Les said...

Big? That's an understatement! Iris told me the other day that there were 600 guests, not 500! Holy cow!! No wonder I was so tired! hahaha!
