A full moon on a summer night…the thought just evokes romance, adventure, and possibility! How could you not be inspired? This dream bachelorette party inspiration is a celebration of friendship, the freedom of summer, and, of course—the bride to be. The day came together at Gardener Ranch with planning + design by Bridget McKay and photographer, Carol Oliva. First up, a pool party with the gals, followed by a classy cocktail + dinner hour!
Carol Oliva captured all the details and believe us, you’ll be starry-eyed in no time!
The totally stellar invitation suite by The Crafting Casa established the boho vibe and color palette: whites, grays, rose gold, and silver.
Party by the Pool
Oh, hello, dream scenario!!
The After Party
Love these metallic moon name cards!
The ladies donned sequined skirts + boho tees, while the lady-of-the-hour shone brightest in a starry gown! And their fierce looks are thanks to MUAH Make up and Hair.
How cool is this giant dream catcher?!
We set up two barn wood table one by the pool and one with an amazing dinnerware an marble plates with a desert plate set on the side to create a crescent moon , macrame , crystals and marble plates full of amazing florals .
Okay, STUNNING! The florals by Floral design by Reina are the stuff of dreams!
Plates set to look like crescent moons?? Brilliant.
The menu was focused on light summer fair from Carmel Poke—so vibrant and beautiful!
The most darling cocktail by Pour Girl!
And an atmospheric delight by Tart and Tin for a sweet finish!
“You are my sun, my moon, and all my stars” Perfection! Thanks to the team behind this day for all the dreamy inspo!
