Bridal Shower Bliss

This past weekend I celebrated with some of my closest friends & family my Bridal Shower. For some of you that know me on a personal level, the majority of the plans had to be done by me. As a planner it runs in my veins & it’s very hard to give up total control. There were a few elements of surprise done by my Mom & my Wedding Party {which were wonderful}, so I still had few things to look forward to.

I picked Mitch & Toni’s American Bistro in Albertson {Long Island} because my parents & I always eat there since it’s very close to where my parents reside ~ Their food & service is always incredible. So we said what better spot to have this special event than at our local eatery!

As always I like to do a little Instagramming! {lauravowweddings}

I absolutely adored my centerpieces done by Santos Floral Designs {and my go to floral designer for everything. They matched the invitations & the DYI seating chart & table numbers I did. {*project advice ~ scan your shower invitation, use Paint or Photoshop software to white out invitation wording & use for your needs. It’s an easy way to coordinate everything together}

We had the place to ourselves so it really felt special. One of my best friends Keara {who also does professional photography on the side ~ KPrints Photography} was kind enough to shoot pictures of the event & details for me. So here is a small glimpse into this wonderful day. I wanted a really intimate vibe & so we didn’t have a lot of people. It was really small & I was able to really focus on everyone & be relaxed & have a great time.

My Bridal Party arranged for a few games which engaged the small crowd & brought out many laughs. It was perfect & I couldn’t thank all those that attended enough. Everyone made this day everything I dreamed it would be. I feel utterly blessed & blissful & I wouldn’t have changed a single thing.

These were the initial images Keara prepared for me to give me a little peak {I will post the other images once she’s done editing}

I would like to thank my dear friend Keara for taking these beautiful shots & looking forward to seeing the rest of them.
