Hawk's View Cellars La Baleine Black Tie Event | Event Photographer Sherwood
I was honored to be invited back to Hawk’s View Cellars in Sherwood, Oregon to photograph the La Beleine wine release event for a second year.
I absolutely love this vineyard… it is such a sophisticated establishment, yet warm and inviting. They feel like family. I’m always so excited when I get invited back for any reason.
This vineyard certainly puts on a beautiful event. This year, Hawk’s View outdid themselves with an incredible black tie event, complete with red carpet, catered with a multi-course meal, and sealed with a patio fire and fine cigars.
The black clothed tables were perfectly styled with classic tableware and a simple tulip centerpiece and, as usual, there was a gorgeous ice sculpture of a whale tale (La Baliene is ‘whale’ in french). Pure class and sophistication, mixed with warm laughs and good energy. I love the imagery results. You might sense a timeless, Mad Men-esque feel.
I’ll say no more. I think these images speak for themselves…
A special thank you to AJ and the entire Hawks View family. I had an amazing time at your Portland area vineyard and love any excuse to head out to the Willamette Valley wine country vineyards.
