Michigan Bridal Shower

I just got the pictures back from our Michigan shower over the weekend. It was a fantastic party on a good family friend’s lawn, overlooking a bayou. We had perfect weather and unbelievable decor!

When Bob and I started planning our wedding almost a year ago we initially considered having it on my parent’s beach on Lake Michigan but eventually decided against it for logistical reasons. Anyway, our shower hosts – Luann & Louann – used my ideas for our beach wedding for the shower   – down to every little detail. We got to see what our original idea would have looked like and it was all a surprise to us so it was great fun and quite touching. Here are a few pictures, taken by one of my best friends from high school.

One long, gorgeous table set with succulents, sea glass and peonies overlooking the bayou.

Mason jar glasses and vintage china & napkins.

Bride & groom chairs with a handmade banner and bunting.

The boys plus cigars & bourbon.

Homemade graham crackers + homemade marshmallows + yummy chocolate = best s’mores ever.
