For bride Alyssa’s bohemian bridal shower, her friends transformed a shady backyard into an idyllic retreat, complete with a teepee hideaway. Guests picnicked on the lawn, enjoying fresh summer salads and a naked cake bursting with berries and cream. The simple photo booth DIY came together by draping neutral ribbons from a clothesline—add a handy Fujifilm Instax camera and you’re set! As an extra-special touch, all of the guests dressed in neutral shades ranging from white and taupe to soft pinks and greens, which resulted in some stunning group pictures that make this look like the most sophisticated garden party ever. While Alyssa is usually the photographer in the group (see her work here at Alyssa Wilcox Photography), her sister stepped in to capture the special moments of the day.
Kori and Sam’s bridal shower took full advantage of a glorious garden setting where the peonies were in full bloom. Guests were encouraged to wander through the gardens and keep an eye out for hidden raffle tickets that could be used to win gift baskets. As Kori is a partner at Styled For Love event design studio, a flower crown station was the perfect activity for this artistic bride. The guests’ flowing floral ensembles, flower crowns and the pillow lounge seating area gave this event a bohemian flair. Photographer Chelo Keys beautifully captured the joy shining out from this couple as their family and friends came together to celebrate their love.
