Happy 80th Birthday Dad

He is loving, he is faithful and he is strong and I’m pretty thankful to be married to his son. Dad Clingen is one of a kind, and on a lovely evening in June on our little farm, we were able to focus on our family and celebrate together, his 80th birthday. When we think of Dad we can’t help but think of the verse in Corinthians that says ‘stand firm in the faith, be courageous, be strong, and do everything in love’. His constant love, his strong leadership and his love for God cannot be missed and we wanted to celebrate our wonderful heritage and the legacy he has set.  It was a special time as David’s brother, John and his family, who do missionary work along the Mexican border in Yuma, Arizona, were able to be here to celebrate this wonderful time. We seldom are able to be all together so it was fitting to have it photographed. A very heartfelt thank you to Mike and our friends at 5ive15ifteen who shared their incredible talents with us and captured the beauty of this special evening.  The custom cake was by Kake Studios and let me tell you, it was so very delicious. A last minute phone call to our friends at Paper and Poste and voila, gorgeous menus were ready for pick up! You guys really are the best in the industry! The sun set behind us as we enjoyed a lovely dinner from Cravings. Happy 80th Dad! Thank you, for your love, your guidance and your leadership.. Your one of a kind. 80th Birthday BoyThe birthday boy himself and if the truth be known, he has been a significant part of the back bone of Rachel A. Clingen Wedding & Event Design. He and mom have done the craziest of jobs to help us on a busy day. Everything from delivery bridal flowers, to putting together crystal candelabras,  but besides all that, dad has built, and re-built our studios, and work shops. He is our biggest supporter and fan and one way or another, is vastly responsible for the many successes that we have enjoyed. Clingen 80th BirthdayFood Photography TorontoFoodBirthday Photography TorontoToronto Event IdeasCLINGEN_FS_117-impMom and Dad Clingen.
