I am currently in the throes of planning my little sister’s Bridal Shower and this is exactly how I envision the day. It’s an intimate garden party with her nearest and dearest gal pals and loved ones, eating great food and celebrating amongst the flowers, sunshine and an insanely good-looking cake. Really, does it get any better? Dive into the full gallery of this Spring Bridal Shower captured by Ashley McCormick Photography right here.

Words from the bride-to-be… Since my fiance and I made the decision to elope for our wedding ceremony, I really wanted to plan a party for my closest girl friends and family so that they could celebrate with me. Of course that translated into me wanting a very feminine shower that also carried out my garden wedding theme. Mission accomplished! My future in laws have a beautiful back yard and I knew from day one it would be the perfect setting for my outdoor event. Luckily, my sweet Mother-in-law was gracious enough to agree to host my shower at their home. The event wouldn’t have been as amazing as it was if I didn’t have her helping with all of the pretty details and planning. In fact, it brought us closer together, and I love she supported me in carrying out all of my grand ideas. She is extremely crafty and she did the majority of the decorating herself and found most of the decorations.

One of my favorite moments of the day was when everyone was finally seated at the table and I was able to look around and see that everything came together so perfectly. More importantly, it was such a blessing to take in the fact that everyone was there to love and support me and my upcoming marriage. It truly was the perfect day!
