It's a tricky situation, having prom in a country where a good chunk of the senior class is legal to buy alcohol. The international students don't appreciate being trapped on a boat for a dinner dance cruise without a cash bar. American kids don't seem to mind so much about a "dry" dinner cruise since prom is a high school rite of passage in their culture. They drink champagne in the limo on the ride to the boat and then go clubbing after the boat docks at 11 pm. Then they attend after parties where alcohol is always present. And the police show up at the house party around 1 am because the neighbors called them to complain about the noise... or so I've heard.
Prom pics were a bit of a flop this year - long, involved story that I lived and don't want to relate here. The bottom line is that we got a few shots with a few of the senior's friends and that's really all of the documentation we need.
