Star Foreman photographs the Flying Morgan's NYE extravaganza

12-31-15-morgan-199

Each year the Flying Morgan's play host to an amazing New Year's Eve party! They are always thrilled, and lucky, to have incredible photographer Star Foreman on hand to document it.

Equally as wonderful as the amazing assemblage of talented friends who gather annually at the Morgan's Castle, I was entranced by the home itself. This incredible family of performers and artists has truly created a paradise where delight waits around every corner.
