Vintage Carnival Themed Bridal Shower

I love every single thing about this bridal shower. The details were done so perfectly and the wonderful theme was not taken too far over the top to just be, well, ridiculous! This group is definitely a stylish and resourceful one, and isn't that just awesome. The wonderful bride-to-be is also a wedding photographer so you know she is going to know how to create a totally awesome bridal shower, and wedding for that matter. I just can't wait to see what other goodies come from her in the future!

From the wonderful, awesome bride-to-be:

What can I say... i LOVE themes! My birthday party last year was 1990's themed and this year my friends and I all dressed as Waldo (where's waldo?) and paraded around like fools at a country western bar. So, it only felt appropriate that my bridal shower was themed too. After much brainstorming, vintage carnvial theme won the battle and we got going!I am lucky enough to have a crafty etsy store owner in my family who volunteered to throw my shower and then I volunteered to take the photos of the day, since I am a wedding photographer.

The day was PERFECT. My sister in law didn't miss a beat. There were red & white pennants hung from the ceiling, popcorn holders filled with flowers, martini glasses filled with cotton candy, and favor bags full of caramel corn! Adorable! The food was unlike any bridal shower food i've ever eaten... shoestring fries in cupcake holders, corndogs, soft homemade pretzels, ketchup and mustard in glass jars with labels instead of plastic bottles, coca cola in glass bottles, and ice cold lemonade!

My favorite detail of the day was my tiny top hat that my other matron of honor, Kalie, made for me. It was perfectly playful. She also made the old school ribbons that the bridesmaid and mothers of the groom/bride wore to distinguish themselves among the other guests. I want to keep using the word "perfect" over and over again because it was COMPLETELY WAS. Such a fun and totally adorable way to spend a sunday afternoon.

Love, Sara (the ring master, bride-to-be, and photographer)
