The day we have all been waiting for, April 22, has finally arrived: the day of prom. This year Chattahoochee’s prom was at Ventanas, an event space, which is on top of the Hilton in downtown Atlanta.
The venue has large endless windows surrounding the dance floor and an outdoor patio with lounge chairs to take in the incredible view of Atlanta. Saying the views were incredible, is an understatement; everywhere you looked you could see some iconic landmark of Atlanta: The Georgia Aquarium, The World of Coke, Centennial Olympic Park, The CNN Center and the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The theme of the dance was quite timeless, “The Black and White Ball.” This classic, chic theme captured the venue perfectly. Since the view at Ventanas was basically what people tended to focus on, the decorations were very simple. The music, however, was not as great. There was not as large of a variety of songs played by the DJ compared to last year and only one main group could actually get into the music. Even though there wasn’t a large variety in the music played, everyone still had a great time dancing on the dance floor surrounded by their closest friends.
Next to the dance floor was a photobooth, a bar for refreshments and an outdoor patio for people who were taking a break from dancing. The outdoor patio was really nice since there wasn’t one last year; it was great to just sit down and take a break from dancing to just really hangout with your friends while being surrounded by a gorgeous view.
Overall, I would say that prom 2017 was a success. As a Senior, and graduating in less than a month, it was a great last prom and an experience that I will remember for a lifetime.
