Sterne Agee hosted Gala in the Gardens Oct. 2 at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
The formal evening was held in connection with the ninth annual Antiques at The Gardens honoring Lyndra and Bill Daniel.
Guests at the gala were among the first to shop the antiques show featuring art, jewelry and antiques. They also met dealers and Tastemakers, regionally and nationally known architects, interior designers and garden designers who curated themed areas with goods selected from Birmingham and other sources.
