I was honored and excited to photograph a local event last week celebrating 6 years of the Nickel Plate Arts! Their annual anniversary celebration and fundraiser took place at the unique, historic, oh-so-stunning Mill Top Banquet & Conference Center in the heart of downtown Noblesville. The evening’s festivities kicked off with a VIP Cocktail Party, where guests could meet and speak with local artists, while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and tasting beer and wine from local breweries. Matt Soverns played piano while the guests mingled and enjoyed conversation in the Mill Top Gallery. Guests were led up to the gorgeous Great Room upstairs for dinner, awards, live music, a fantastic dance performance, dramatists offering Fairy Sweets, a silent auction, a live auction, and so much more!
