So you guessed it - today, we are sharing our Weddings Magazine spread of a Bridal Shower Party. Some time early last year, we met with Maureen over at Fig and Honey IE- the best lunch spot ever! And she asked us to do a styled shoot for the magazine. There were a few things that were already set - the venue, photographer and florist. She also REALLY wanted to use aprons some how, some way.

We took the concept and ran with it. We wanted to do a more preppy/bubbly shower theme as opposed to the vintage glam that was inundating my news feeds. For me, this was a slight struggle. My natural aesthetic is the vintage, soft, airy look. I did what all planners do when they hit a block- I called on my team. Courtney immediately had tons of ideas and she gave me a great inspiration board to work from.

Two of our models were past brides, so it was wonderful to see them again! We stayed after and had lunch, caught up, and heard all about the married life!

We brought in an excellent vendor team and every single one was awesome. Maghon with ASWN was so easy to work with and went all out for us! Logan at Kendra Scott spent hours with us picking the perfect combo of jewelry. Dare with APR was wonderful (as always) to work with. Frill gave us lots of options and allowed us to really play with idea. And Lauren with Southern Season was just the perfect host and was so accommodating to our needs. It was seriously a rock star team!
