Shower the People you Love with Love

Family is an important word in this industry. As a wedding planner, the relationship starts as planner and clients. Throughout the planning process, if you’re lucky, the term client turns into friend, and friend turns into family. On their wedding day you see two families merge into one, all because two people fell in love!


Two years ago, I was lucky enough to help plan the wedding of my own family. My sister-in-law and her soon to be husband allowed me to help guide them through their wedding planning process and trusted me to make their weekend perfect. Granted she was already ‘family’, but being a part of their wedding day – as the planner and a bridesmaid (that’s a different story for a different day!) was one that I will never forget.

Fast forward to almost 8 months ago, and I get a call from my sister-in-law asking if I’m home. When she walks in the door I knew immediately why she was there. Three minutes later – we’re both staring at the stick on the counter, waiting for the timer to go off. We look down and she asks excitedly “what does it say”? I flip it over and with a smile from ear to ear and I get to tell her “you’re pregnant!”

Needless to say – being a part of such monumental moments in someone’s life, let alone your family, is something that means so much. So of course, we had to plan the most perfect baby shower for this first-time mama-to-be! These photos are only a snippet of the beautiful afternoon spent celebrating Baby Peanut and it will be a day that we can look back on and smile!



The shower was held at this beautiful private residence on Lake Norman.



When the mama-to-be wants a garden party, you give her a garden party!





Every baby shower needs a Mom-osa bar!










This pink balloon arch was such a fun statement for the mantle!

When one cake isn't enough, you get three! And french macarons & petit fours, of course!






Congratulations to these two - we can't wait to meet Baby Peanut in June!
