The Daimler Group- Mercedes Benz Award Ceremony at William Aiken House

The Daimler Group held an award ceremony for Mercedes Benz industry leaders who have been in the business for 25-40 years. This eclectic group traveled from far and wide all over the world for this prestigious event. Brazil, Argentina, and Canada were just a few of their residences. Staying at the Francis Marion Hotel, they rode to William Aiken House on a bus together. When they arrived they gathered in front of the beautiful koi pond and white arbor for a formal group photo. I captured this shot from the overlooking balcony. After that it was cocktails and socializing for 45 minutes before the award ceremony. After the ceremony, we took some photos of each leader and their teams. Don't let the formal attire and corporate titles lead you to think that this group was stiff though. They certainly did know how to have a good time! Once through with the "formal photos", they couldn't help but break out into a silly group shot and selfies! What a fun night. :)www.melissamileyphotography.comCROP0001 CROP0024CROP0045CROP0050CROP0042CROP0029CROP0049CROP0066CROP0056CROP0072CROP0092CROP0085CROP0089CROP0117CROP0146CROP0135CROP0138CROPIMG_6060
