A couple weekends ago, I headed up to Ashburn, VA, for Chelsea's bridal shower! Chelsea is the sister of my best friend, Molly, and some of you who read my old blog might remember her engagement pictures that I took and posted here. Well, not long after that, Chelsea called me up and asked me to be their wedding photographer! I'm so, so excited and absolutely cannot wait for the day to get here. And, I'm very blessed to have this lady backing me up!
But, back to the shower. Molly and Chelsea's sister, Emily, planned and decorated the entire shower, and y'all, if this isn't Pinterest-worthy, then I don't know what is. She clearly poured her heart into it, and not only were the decorations fabulous, but the food, which both Molly and her mom helped with, was to die for. Enjoy these images from Chelsea's very special day!
That's Chelsea on the left and Molly on the right. Would you believe they're actually twins?!?
One of Molly's lovely contributions to the shower was a plant with paper leaves. Each guest could write her advice for a happy marriage on the leaf, and at the end, I promise the thing looked like a real plant! It was brilliant.
As with all small children, Molly was determined to make a friend out of the flowergirl. I'd call this a success.
Later on, after the guests had gone home, Ryan stopped by to read some of the cards and help Chelsea carry the gifts over to the apartment they'll share after they're married. We're down to a matter of weeks!
Congratulations, you two. I couldn't be more thrilled to be part of your big day, and I just adore the mess out of you!
