Erica’s Backyard DIY Bridal Shower

With just 17 days until their wedding, last month I was invited to document Erica’s special day of being showered by the love of her closest family and friends. I absolutely love capturing small details in general so I was in heaven when I was able to capture these, which were so lovingly put together by Erica’s bridesmaids. Set in a cozy backyard in Downey with the most beautiful lavendar trees in the background, the afternoon was set up to be a memorable one.

Elegant Italian lights as well as hanging paper dresses stood above the white linen tables which were decorated with fresh white hydrangeas. From the “Table of Love” where encouragements and marriage tips were written, to a handmade book of photographs and loving words of the invited guests,  to the cutest “From Miss to Mrs.” bunting EVER… I just could not stop capturing the abundance of keepsake details I know Erica will treasure forever.  Congrats Erica and Brandon! I couldn’t be more blessed to call you friends.
