t was a perfect September night at Ivy Hall in Southtown San Antonio last week, with the view of the Tower of the Americas through the palm trees serving as a picturesque backdrop for a celebration and reception in honor of our 2018 and 2019 Texas Women to Watch.

A feature we published in partnership with Society Texas Magazine to highlight women across our great state who stand out as leaders within their communities, we welcomed honorees who traveled from Dallas, San Angelo, Austin, and beyond to gather in-person and meet their power-peers on the feature list.

The women in attendance were encouraged to bring family and friends with them, to give those who support their careers and passions a chance to celebrate too. Tim McDiarmid, a featured Woman to Watch and owner of Tim the Girl catering, hosted the event at her Ivy Hall venue with food and cocktails by The Good Kind, her restaurant on property.

In keeping with the theme of community, and the inspired hint of nostalgia, guests were encouraged to take the photos documenting memories of the night on disposable film cameras that were scattered throughout the venue.

The result? Proof that even in our fast-paced digital age where we can connect with others on-line, the in-person relationships will always make a lasting impact. To read the individual stories in the 2019 Texas Women to Watch feature, click here for more.
