Victorian Bridal Shower (Styled Shoot)

From Chic Brown Brides: We love unique ideas for bridal showers, especially those that cater to your style as a bride. Today, we’re sharing bridal shower inspiration with a Victorian flare. Our favorite part? The incredible attention to detail and vintage feel from the tea cups to the brides dress. Take a look below and get inspired!

This styled shoot was put together for the  Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau. They hosted a three day weekend for writers and editors on the best places to get married in Galveston, TX. I was reached out to by Leah Cast to decorate the Lasker Inn as if we were at a real bridal shower so the writers could optimize the experience for their articles. 

I wanted to inspire brides to have a classic and timeless bridal shower! This styled shoot oozzes with fine attention to the details. Debra Mason with Fulley Love Photography did an amazing job capturing these images and truly help create the story for this beautiful shower! I placed emphasis on adding Victorian flare to the dessert table and main table with vintage dishes, tea pots, and kept the color pallet soft. Also, I wanted to bring in the Victorian element with the models wardrobe as well as, The Ivy Retreat helped me accomplish this with ease! Elaine Johnston with EJohnston designs, added a romanticized flarewith  her beautiful arrangements that centered the tablescape.  I wrapped vintage books in fine paper from papersource and pulled out all my toys from inventory that gave a old Victorian vintage flare.  My favorite part from the table aside from everything, was a gold casket box where I placed teabag cookies in from CaseBakes. It was such a small detail but had such a powerful presence at the table.  Overall, I loved seeing this styled shoot come together and hope that I inspired brides to take this look and make it their own!”
