Style: Sweet & Savory

February is the most romantic month of the year,

so why not spend an evening at one of two romantic locations that Michael Anthony’s has to offer. Thanks to our friends Becky and Tony Fazzini, owners of the Italian restaurant, we were able to showcase just how fabulous you can look while taking part in a cooking class or enjoying a glass of Champagne at the bar. Our models were dad and daughter and mom and daughter duos to make certain that they were kept safe in their family bubble. LOCAL Life stylist Roxanne Gilleland ensured that the models were dressed to the nines by sourcing all outfits from local shops and boutiques.
