Bridal showers are quickly becoming one of my favorite things to document for my Brides. It is such a luxury to join my couples on their wedding journey for showers, rehearsal dinners, boudoir sessions and post-wedding sessions and events.
Check out this incredible garden party bridal shower I photographed this summer at the Chicago Botanic Garden, designed by Debi Lilly and her team.
Upon arrival, I gasped at how stunning everything looked. It didn’t hurt that the weather was perfect either. I was immediately drawn to the soft seating area for guests to relax and loved the combination of vibrant fuschia mixed with pale pink and shades of gold. You can see the color scheme flow nicely into the tablescapes, menus and floral.
Guests arrived via trolley and sipped on champagne while they mingled which was fun to document. After, they noshed on a lovely spread of tea sandwiches, salads and treats with edible flower garnishes. Each person took home a little plant that was waiting for them at their place setting.
The best part of the event was capturing the guest of honor, Shannon, enjoying herself and toast with her Mom and sisters.
