The second largest of Hettinger's paintings containing the most figures, this piece captures the relaxed, yet charged energy of both little girls and young women discussing future wedding plans. The paintings rich interior with saturated colors create what feels like a cool spring day and perfectly embodies that quiet moment that comes before an exciting transition.

Hettinger says of this work, "When I was young I was lucky enough to have been commissioned to paint the portraits of a group of sisters by their father. I became a friend of the family and spent several summers with them at their lake house. Playing cards with the father, fishing and taking the young ladies out dancing created some fond memories for my friends and I. It even resulted in a wedding or two. On one particular day, the sisters, all at different stages in life, spent the afternoon flipping through wedding magazines and books in preparation for one such wedding.

It was a challenge to capture the details of the luxurious interior of the family home while highlighting the close bonds between the sisters. Their personalities were so unique and varied; I really wanted that to be apparent within the cohesiveness of their shared purpose."
