Retirement Party at Ceresville Mansion

I photographed Phil’s wedding a few years ago so it was a treat to be asked to photograph his retirement party in December!

On that exact day in December, Phil celebrated 50 years in the financial field. What an accomplishment! The event was small- with mostly family and dear friends, at Ceresville Mansion in Frederick, Maryland.

His business partners, including his daughter, spoke about his adventures over the last fifty years and wishing him the best in his retirement. Then Phil himself got up to talk which made everyone smile- he’s so funny! His funny one-liners also led to some poignant and sweet moments, as he thanked his family and friends for their support and kindness over the years.

I really enjoyed being a small part of his event. I hope Phil and his family can look back on these photos and see how much they are loved and appreciated.
