Gathering your leading ladies for an afternoon of champagne sipping is always a welcome idea in our book. *Enter* Fat Cork in Seattle which just so happens to have beautiful space (and plenty of bubbly!) for the occasion. They partnered up with Katie Parra for wedding shower inspiration any bride could get behind, and you can snag a look at the full shebang over here.

From Katie Parra PhotographyI had the great pleasure of meeting Kate and Chloe of Fat Cork at a local industry event in Seattle. We talked all things Champagne and how they are opening up Fat Cork’s tasting room to host bridal showers, bridesmaid luncheons, and bachelorette parties. I of course jumped at the chance to photograph the mock bridal shower they wanted to put on to help get the word out to all our fabulous Seattle Brides. Kate and Chloe did a lovely job. Those two sure know their stuff when it comes to Champagne and how to throw a great party!

Fat Cork is a lovely space and by the end of the shoot I was literally trying to think up an excuse to have a party there for myself! But do I really need a reason…nope! Seattle Brides and Maids of Honor- Fat Cork’s tasting room is THE best place to celebrate this special and super fun time in one’s life. 

From Fat CorkWe partnered with Katie to create a French bridal shower featuring Champagne, the most celebratory of beverages! Our goal was to encourage brides to think of their shower not only as an afternoon of gifts and silly games, but also as an opportunity to check one more thing off the never-ending to-do list – selecting their wedding Champagne with their most trusted taste-testers.

We wanted the bridal shower to feel like a French fête, complete with rustic baguettes, fresh fruit, and delicious cheeses. We had a blast sipping Champagne, devouring French fare, and toasting to friends and fun!
