When photographer, Melissa Green, first shared this fun woodland bridal shower with us, she told us a bit of backstory behind its inception. She shares, I have a strong desire to make every bride I talk to realize what a special season of life she’s in. A bride should be showered, adorned, celebrate. So in order to help a bride have a more enjoyable engagement, I hosted a giveaway for one extraordinary bride-to-be. With this contest, over 100 entries were created with an outpour of love and adoration. It was beautiful reading each nomination, lengthy posts praising and encouraging girls everywhere.
Haleigh of XO Events designed the florals + a lush fern garland for the tablescape.
Melissa asked each girl to wear their favorite little black dress + the easy, stylish “dress code” added an heir of fun right off the bat. Attending a shower or event soon where a LBD is a must? Shop our faves below:
Fruity cocktails kept the girls warm and lively and giggly all evening, desserts and award winning quiche danced on their forks, and overhanging lights and candles created a dream ambiance.

Melissa shares, We had a blast showering this deserving bride and reminding her this season of life is such an exciting and fun one, even in the midst of stressful wedding planning.
Congrats + best wishes to Emily + her fiancé, Max!
