Bride Jillian of style blog Rhyme & Reason was delighted with her Around the Clock bridal shower with a little bit of a twist. Each guest was assigned a general time of day—morning, cocktail hour, dinner or late night—but the three hostesses and the bride’s mother each picked a holiday and chose cute decor for that occasion. The bride is now fully ready to host Easter, Cinco de Mayo, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Photographer Elyse Hall captured this modern event in sunny Arizona.

I truly feel like I’ve fallen down a rabbit hole into this magical Wonderland bridal shower with a lot of 70s swing. Can I move in to this fabulous Scottsdale, Arizona, estate? I will settle for a chair by the pool with my name on it! Bride Elizabeth has her own clothing line, Revolution Rags, which donates ten percent of its profits to animal rescue (stylish and compassionate!). Elizabeth’s friends added touches of whimsy to the already out-of-this-world back garden by dotting the lush hedge with oversized playing cards and creating a photo backdrop with neon carnations. Guests enjoyed a gourmet lunch along with a stocked poolside bubbly bar and photographer Paul Yerrick was there to capture all the magic (both digitally and on film!).
