This bridal shower fete serves as the perfect illustration of beautiful work from our local Philadelphia wedding vendors! Bridal Stylist Lauren Griffin dreamed up a modern minimalistic bridal brunch saturated in pretty pink + gold essentials. Together with the gifted photographer Ashlee Mintz, this day was sealed for surefire inspiration! I absolutely love every aspect of this gorgeous bridal shower! From the amazing hand-painted cake crafted by Whipped Bakeshop, down to the elegant paper goods from Darling + Pearl. But I’ll let the photographs speak for themselves, take my word for it because you’ll be left dazed and inspirited!
From Lauren Griffin: “Ashlee and I had been brainstorming the idea of a styled shoot but couldn’t found the perfect location. I was immediately inspired by the bright and artsy room at White Dog Café and knew we had found our venue. The room really shaped the inspiration for the shoot.”
“We decided on bright pink, gilded gold and painterly accents. We mixed elements of mid-century minimalism and modern urban chic with super feminine macarons and bright blooms. Zoë at Whipped Bakeshop introduced gold studs to the paint stroke cake, which added an edgy feel. All the vendors got on board and carried out a seamless vision.”
“As a stylist, I’m moved by the season’s newest trends and wanted to incorporate some of my favorites into the shoot. I gave each model a “personality” so I could style an outfit that really reflected each girl. “
“The bride, Emily is a timeless beauty. She’s influenced by trends but never over does it. While her white cape dress and spike necklace are right on trend, her hair (and vintage inspired engagement ring) are classic and timeless.
Bridesmaid, Alison lives a breaths fashion. Her high-low hem peplum dress and high half pony hair style are straight out of vogue (and you’ll find them on her fashion blog later!).
Bridesmaid, Lindsay is fun, funky, cool and edgy. I layered jewels on top of jewels, and trends on top of trends, because for her, too much is never enough. “
From the Photographer: “From the pretty pink peonies to the studded gold glam cake every vendor worked together to create a modern but chic celebration fit for any bride who loves color, bling and details. This isn’t inspiration couldn’t have been completed without the amazing team of vendors who worked together perfectly. When planning, your own bridal shower remember to always add in elements of your own personality and you will be sure to shine!”
