bridal shower invitation with flowers

My bridal shower in August of 2023 was thoughtfully planned and intentionally crafted by my sissy, my bridal party, and my sweet Momma.


Ryan and I were blown away by the love and energy gifted to us on that warm summer day overlooking the lake in Williamstown, NJ. I will forever cherish the sweet moment outside with Ry - waiting to enter a tasting room full of all the women who have raised us, loved us, and encouraged us throughout our lives.




Arriving in style with a harvest basket in hand, I wore a @wishuponadressllc from our favorite consignment bridal shop, @handmegownsbridal.


Wish Upon a Dress supports @wishuponawedding - offering new life to a sample dress with profits going toward granting weddings and vow renewals to couples facing serious illness or life-altering circumstances. @lexirodmakeup glammed me up and I opted to do a sleek ponytail -similar to how my hair looked when Ryan proposed in 2021.




My beautiful bridal party (Liz, Emily, Steph, Abbey + Caleb) did not miss a single dainty detail. The darling invitations featured a custom floral watercolor design by a local artist - honoring the style of our save-the-dates and wedding invitations but with a feminine flair.


Fresh flowers from Atco farm, @erikasflowerbar adorned the tasting room at Autumn Lake Winery in Williamstown, NJ. Vintage cloth napkins, tablecloths, books, frames, and photographs were scattered on each and every table.



My sister's custom macrame backstop hung above our vintage peacock chair, Frenchy, tying together a vintage-inspired for the tasting room.


The luncheon featured a beautiful spread of my favorites that paired perfectly with the endless glasses of rosé. Sandwiches, wraps, salads, and charcuterie were followed by homemade wine-infused cupcakes (Matt's Grandmom), champagne-shaped cookies (Aunt Kathy + Uncle Jeff), @valrhonausa chocolates (Emily), heart-shaped pound cake (Aunt Dee) and diamond ring donuts (Gail).



Ladies filled out recipe cards to stock our kitchen with love and adorned us with generous gift bags, boxes, and cards. Assorted vintage bud vases were curated for the bouquet bar which featured local farm-fresh bouquets for guests to take home as a favor!


Best of all - the hugs, kisses, squeezes, I love yous and well wishes from the women who have raised me, cared for me, guided, and inspired me my whole life.



Each season of life God has gifted me with the most wonderful souls to journey with. We are so thankful for the friends and family who have stood by our side through some of life's most intimate moments.


Special thanks to my bridesmaids and family who made our wedding season so magical. We are forever grateful for our tribe.
