Capping off yesterday’s Inauguration of Governor Bob McDonnell, the festivities from last night’s Inaugural Ball provide a memory that will remain around for a long time. I arrived at the Ball around 9 p.m., decked out in a teal column dress that had back cutouts and lots of sparkle. I can tell you that I felt and looked like a princess…so special thanks to my sister, who selected the dress and has great fashion sense.
Upon arriving, I went into take pictures. Ed Gillespie was talking to the audience, and members of the Inaugural Committee were on stage. Soon after Gillespie introduced the members of the Inaugural Committee, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and his wife, Teiro joined them. Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling and his wife, Jean Ann joined them on stage. After an introductory video, Governor McDonnell and his family made their grand entrance onto the stage. Governor McDonnell and the First Lady, Maureen, danced to “You’re Still the One,” which their daughter, Jeanine sang especially for the event.
The Governor’s favorite band, America, provided the entertainment. It was a great time to celebrate the victory and meet up with friends. Below are some pics from the event (including one of myself in my gown).
