Jennifer and Omar were married in October and had several spectacular events leading up to their wedding including Jennifer’s Bridal shower. I had the pleasure of shooting this absolutely stunning shower this past July and, on a scale of 1 to 10 of the most elaborate showers I’ve ever seen, this one is a 15! This was all organized and put together beautifully by Jennifer and her mother including other key family members at the Ber Ber Lounge just below the Sultan’s Tent. Hot Pink and shoes were predominately the focus as everyone who knows Jennifer knows she adores shoes….and Hot Pink! Every table setting was named after a pair of shoes that Jennifer owned including the fabulous Valentino’s she was wearing that day. Even the guests’ place cards were a tiny shoe. I mean it when I say every detail was looked after.
As is custom for most Italian showers, all the aunts, cousins, grandmothers and great grandmothers prepare as many cookies as they possibly can for that one day. All the cookies were handmade specifically for the shower and each guest was given a basketful of goodies before they left. The day was filled with great food and entertainment. A big thanks to Pink Twig for their phenomenal floral design and to The Wedding Cake Shoppe for their creative skills with the shoe cake. Last but not least, thanks to Jennifer, Omar and their families for letting me be a part of their celebration. Great shower idea! And stay tuned for photos of the wedding!
