For Mindi and Rich Verdi, capturing this engagement party on camera was no ordinary job—their daughter, Ashlyn, and her fiancé, Benjamin, were the guests of honor! The family affair took place at Peconic River Herb Farm in Calverton, New York. Mindi styled the event, which was filled with cheerful blue and red decor fit for a whimsical, summertime soirée.
