Coco Chanel French Inspired Bridal Shower at the Richard Nixon Library

This was a DREAM shoot. There really isn't another way to describe it... It was perfect and DREAMY and delicious in every way. Our inspiration was a modern Coco Chanel/Parisian influenced high end bridal shower. Our color palette was a soft, blush pink with accents of crisp white and black. It was amazing to see our ideas become a reality... Chandra of Oh Lovely Day and I dreamed up this shoot with the help of the AMAZING Jasmine Star. However, Amanda with In the Now Weddings really brought it all together with her keen eye for detail and her outrageous energy. Yes, my friends, it was a wonderful day filled with so many beautiful details...

The "guest of honor", the bride to be... the stunning Gabrielle admiring the bling on the "adorn" table.

Lush all white floral arrangements were created with lilac, hydrangea and anemones in black hobnail vases.

The "guests" were invited to adorn themselves in beautiful handmade jewelry provided by All Things Tinsel, Angel Black Designs and Renee Pawele Brides.

In lieu of a traditional guestbook, the girls wrote personal messages on vintage, French inspired postcards that were then pinned onto a wire Eiffel Tower.

Another fun station - Mixology... the girls were able to create their own custom scent. 


A delicious arrangement of roses, yummy lilac, anemones, peonies and hydrangea...

The dessert table by the amazing Jay's Catering,  was quite possibly one of my favorite elements of the day. It was a French dessert bar... chocolate croissants, eclairs, macarons, creme brulee, pots de chocolat, petit fours ... it was decadent and gorgeous. The table was framed by a breath taking backdrop created by Glow Concepts.

Sweet and Saucy created the cake and it could not have been more perfect for this shoot. Melody designed a modern cake with vintage Chanel accents.

And I am so honored and excited to share that this shoot was featured on THE wedding blog, Style Me Pretty. Be sure to check out the feature!!!
This shoot would not have been so absolutely AMAZING and DREAMY without our exceptional team of vendors... sincere, grateful, heartfelt thanks to everyone involved...

  1. Simply breathtaking! We would LOVE to be a part of any future event shoots like this. Seriously!!!

  2. I am so excited that you posted this Jaclyne!! Love it! Can't wait to meet you next week :)

  3. This is a real work of art. The attention for the details, the choice of the flowers and the deco denote an immense artistic flair and a great professionalism. Bravo!!
    La maison Chanel should ask you to do the flowers for their next perfume. You are a genius!

  4. I'm trying to figure out where did the bottles w/the lemonade; come from?
    Beautiful shoot! I've been doing a search for those bottles and can't find them anywhere. Is that a straw attached to the bottle cap? I LOVE IT!!!!


  5. Where are the perfume favors from (the ones with candies)??/ I have been looking for these left and right and can't seem to fidn them. Beautiful party!!!
