I am so excited to share some photos from my bridal shower two weeks ago because I love them so much and I love how it all came together! It was everything I wanted and much more! Every moment was wonderful and I really felt so absolutely loved and cherished afterwords. I really could not ask for better human beings in my life and I feel so grateful.
First off...a HUGE thanks to my talented friend Angela for taking photos for me! It gave me peace of mind knowing that I could enjoy without worrying I have to capture all the entire day. Some of you insta peeps may know her as @themanysidesofang but her business profile is @jugonphotography so make sure to check it out for more gorgeous photography!
So I know technically other people plan a shower for you and to an extent my mom did that...however, my control issues and the vision I had for the theme led me to do a little more than I probably needed to for the shower. Honestly though I enjoyed EVERY minute of the planning, especially when it came to the decor, so I have no regrets! My only regret is my anxiety prior to the event, which was a quite unnecessary and led to my first bridezilla moment -_- I guess it was bound to happen at some point but ugh! Melanie! I have since forgiven myself and so have my bridesmaids/anyone else who was in the crossfire and I am hoping that another moment does not occur between now and August 26th =P
So the theme...Paris! Of course...because I'm FEMME de bloom! I chose this theme because I adore french desserts (macarons! eclairs!), the eiffel tower, french music (Edith Piaf! Serge Gainsbourg!Jacques Brel!), french writers/philosophers (Jacques Derrida! Victor Hugo!) and much MORE! I even had a ridiculous obsession with Jacques Cousteau as a child because of my marine life preoccupation. So duh, this theme was a no brainer.
First, decor photos!
