Sara Bridal Shower

Sara’s Denver Bridal Shower

It was an April morning… a perfect April morning. As Mathew and I drove to Sara’s bridal shower, we gazed out our windows at the blossoming trees. Pinks, purples and whites leapt from Denver’s trees like pastel fireworks. A warm breeze ruffled the delicate new leaves and perky tulips- the scene was like a preview to the Spring Shower we were headed to. We don’t often get to photograph the events leading up to a couple’s wedding, but had the pleasure of doing so for Sara’s Denver Bridal Shower.

Sara is planning an August wedding in a lavender theme – thus, the lavender shower decorations. She and her future hubbie, Chris, love to cook together, but haven’t had the chance to stock their budding kitchen yet. That sounds like the ideal gift-theme to me! Sara’s friends and family showered her with kitchen gadget gifts so that she and and Chris can spend a lifetime chopping, sautéing, and baking together. Her apron “memory” game and wooden spoon wishes for marriage were delightful additions to the festivities.

Wands and Wishes Occasions hosted and styled the event in ivory and lavender, with hints of spring green and posh silver. Kate Aspen furnished charming heart-shaped measuring spoons as guest favors and victorian key bottle openers as game prizes. And, their topiary place card holders were the perfect spring accent to the table decor. MarryGrams created tasteful “love is sweet” tags in lavender as a special thank you to all the lovely ladies in attendance. The shower “cake” was created by Maggie and Molly’s Sweet Life – since this was a morning event, they put together a mini cinnamon roll tower, complete with cream cheese icing and tiny purple flowers on top. Mimosas, laughter, and gifts saturated this lovely event and Sara glowed as only a future bride can. She and Chris will most certainly share a fully stocked, fully functional, and fully loving kitchen as husband and wife.Sara Bridal ShowerSara Bridal ShowerSara Bridal ShowerSara Bridal ShowerSara Bridal ShowerSara Bridal ShowerSara Bridal ShowerSara Bridal Shower
