Holly’s Tea Party Bridal Shower

I can’t even handle how gorgeous Holly’s bridal shower was on Saturday! It was truly an honor to get to photograph such a special day for her put on by her lovely bridesmaids and planned by Ashley Appling, her matron of honor!  Her maid of honor, Christianne Taylor, one of the most creative girls I know & dear friend of mine put together all the stunning floral arrangements! Together, the bridesmaids really knocked it out of the park on this one!
Swift & Co. really did an amazing job catering! Everything looked spectacular and they were all so kind! Every little detail of this party was to die for… from her adorable Chanel purse to Swift & Co.’s gorgeous tea cups! Not only were Holly’s friends so sweet but her family was just the best!! All of them are such treasures and you can just feel their love!  They are so kind and loving to everyone and so incredibly thoughtful!  It’s no wonder why Holly is the sweetest girl you’ll ever meet!
Holly’s mom was just a doll!! SO sweet, so kind!  You could tell she was just as happy as could be to be celebrating her gorgeous little girl!How gorgeous is this cake?! Ashley, the matron of honor & planner for the shower, did a wonderful job with everything and I loved her idea of matching the cake to the gorgeous gold tablecloths! Such a cute idea!
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any cuter … they brought out adorable tea bag cookies with an “A” on it for her soon-to-be last name!
After presents and a few little games, Christianne had the beautiful idea of having each of the girls go around and say something they love most about Holly … … when it got to Holly’s mom, I think everyone was in tears!  It was so sweet! Each girl had so many sweet things to say!  It was truly a special moment to honor the sweetest little bride!Then they all prayed over her …  : ) 

Holly, thank you so much for asking me to be a part of this beautiful day in your life!  You are so very loved and for good reason! You are as sweet & genuine as they come and it’s obvious how much you just bless everyone with your kind and loving heart!  I know you will have the most beautiful wedding & even more beautiful marriage!!
