Seaside Bridal Shower Inspiration

bridal soiree by the sea

We know that lots of you are in the midst of planning a bridal shower for your best pal, so today we thought we’d share some inspiration for a fun, girls-only bridal soiree by the sea! Cali-based photographer Sarah Kathleen has been teaming up with event designer {ever after} artistry-ca to create a series of styled shoots based on the love stories + fairytales we grew up with and inspired by something no girl can live without: her girlfriends. BIG yes to that! Here’s a bit about this particular beachy bridal fête, from Sarah herself:

We wanted this shoot to have a romantic, feminine, relaxed feel – embodying the friendship and femininity that can be found at a bridal shower. The gold net-like dress by Sarah Seven paired with a crown by Untamed Petals launched us headfirst into bringing our inspiration to life. Then we had 5 lovely ladies draped in shades of navy and accented by jewelry by Baxter Moerman. The details were inspired by bubbles and sand, in the most modern of interpretations.
