Blogger Bride A Dash of Details’ Bridal Shower

Hi Brides-to-be! It’s Ali from A Dash of Details back to share some fun details from my bridal shower. With the countdown to the Big Day approaching ever so quickly (a little less than 2 weeks away!), it was so fun to take time and enjoy a day with everyone I love. My best friends, family and even a surprise guest showered me with so much love and kindness. Come inside my special day!

I was so overwhelmed with emotion when I arrived at my shower. For the first time it started to feel like I was actually getting married! I cried so many happy tears when each of my friends walked in the door. They are seriously the best!

My Aunts’ found the most darling spot to host my shower, The Henry. It is the cutest restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona adorned with rustic details and great light! They filled the room with citrus and white rose vases, Rifle Paper Co. decorations, and Elizabeth and James Nirvana Perfume and Coin Purses for everyone. We sipped on mimosas, enjoyed delicious food, played fun games, and laughed until our belly’s hurt. I felt like a princess.

My favorite part (if I had to pick a favorite part) was the Polaroid book from my Aunt Jill. Each girl took a picture with me when they arrived and wrote a special note on each page. It was so sweet and will be something I will keep forever! I hope you enjoyed a little peek into my shower. Stay tuned for lots of pre-wedding details coming soon!

From Sarah Beth PhotographyWith all the vendors in this shoot, it was destined to be amazing! We decided to stick with modern, clean and crisp inspirations for this shoot. When choosing a venue, Melrose Mansion was first on the list due to their elegant structure, along with their white walls and huge windows that let in so much natural light! Since we were going to be surrounded by so much white and light colors, we chose to add some color to the flowers to balance it all out.

Our models couldn’t have been a better fit either. Our ‘bride’ Erin Edmiston was actually Mrs. Louisiana. While our male model creates custom mens suites! Although the two only met on the day of the shoot, you wouldn’t be able to tell in the photos :)

The stationary set by Heather Grimm may have been one of my favorite aspects about the shoot. The envelopes were black felt that gave an extra luxurious feeling to the set.

From the beautiful Bride…Our wedding was the most magical day of our lives. My parents’ Lake House on Georgian Bay served as the backdrop for our outdoor wedding and tented reception. The moment we got engaged, we got to planning. I had a very specific idea in mind for the day and with the help of our talented vendors my dream came alive! We wanted a formal wedding; with as many flowers as we could possibly order! From the moment people were escorted down the lane way, they immediately felt the love and beauty that makes the property so dear to us. Our family values tradition, and so the day included many of the same traditions that our parents and grandparents weddings had, including a live Motown band, fabulous seated dinner and traditional vows. Our goal was to create a sensory experience for guests that felt like an extension of the beautiful grounds that served as the venue. The celebration ended with a magical fireworks display I had planned for my new husband!
