Happy Monday! Today I bring you some inspiration for a fun bridal shower. This bride-to-be was surprised with an Alice in Wonderland themed shower! The details were spot on from the decor and the treats, down to the Queen of Hearts stamp!

The guests all arrived decked out in their best tea dresses and fascinators! They were served a plethora of yummy tea treats which were all labeled “eat me”. There were many drinks from lemonade to iced tea embellished with a “drink me” flag and straw. After lunch was served the yummiest of treats were presented! Card symbol cookies, cupcakes and a topsy-turvey cake!

After dessert some gifts were opened and the groom to be showed up to surprise the bride! {How sweet!}. Then it was time for a serious game of croquet. No Alice in Wonderland themed party is complete without a game of croquet. The guests left happy and as a parting gift they were given heart shaped tea infuser spoons!

Enjoy this creative party and I hope you get some fun ideas from it!

What a crazy week!! I have been in New York City for the past week photographing New York Fashion Week with Shannon Michelle Photography! This was such a fantastic opportunity and I had so much fun. I photographed 18 different shows ranging from ready to wear clothing, to artistic expression clothing to the most beautiful gowns I have ever seen! Of course the gowns were my favorite part! The most impressive aspect of the shows was seeing the craftsmanship and the details of the clothing such as intricate beading, subtle embellishments and the quality of fabric.

Venexiana by Kati Stern was my first gown show and what a show it was.  Here are some of her gowns which would be great for your beautiful mothers to wear on your wedding day or they can be worn as alternative wedding gowns! Maybe Kati can make these gowns in white! ;)

Pink is a classic choice for your wedding! It can be used to be bright and bold with shades of hot pink, fuchsia and coral or it can be soft and elegant with shades of ballet pink, champagne and blush. Either way this color coordinates very will with grey. Have your men dressed in grey, a few special ladies in the color or add a detail like shoes or pashmina scarves. Don’t want to wear pink? How about sprinkle it in your details such as your bouquets, linens or cake! Take a look at how pink and grey could work for you!
