Bridesday Weekend, Part I


3 days. 3 wedding-related events, 1 exhaaaausted Gretchen.

Even for someone as openly in love with anything that has to do with weddings, admittedly, two bridal showers and a bachelorette was a lot for a single weekend. That said, it was obviously completely worth it! I adore celebrating my friends being in love! I took about 80,000 pictures throughout the weekend, but still need to finishing editing all of them, so for today I’ve got a little glimpse into Aileen’s awesome Mad Hatter Tea Party bridal shower!





There was a headband making station. SO creative and so much fun.



I ended up wearing mine the entire rest of the day (including out to dinner, haha).



There were more photos than this, of course, but I imagine that Aileen’s eventual recap of the event will end up being far more entertaining. Seriously, if you guys aren’t already reading her blog, you need to start. Especially if you enjoy laughing out loud and/or animal-shaped kitchenware.

Hopefully I’ll have more fun photos for you to tomorrow — I also finished editing baby Mia‘s newborn shoot so ready your “Aww” face, cause there’s gonna be a heckuva lot of cute up in here.


  1. I kind of wish I could have also made a headband. Are there any scraps left for me scavenge from Aileen? Because, to be honest, I could very soon.

  2. Whoa. AMAZING-looking shower!

  3. I can’t thank you enough for the fabulous photos, and for contributing your writing skillz to the shower. It was wonderful to have you there, and I don’t even feel bad for contributing to your EVERYBODY IS GETTING MARRIED WEDDING STUFF EVERY DAY SOMETIMES TWICE A DAY YOU WILL NEVER HAVE YOUR LIFE BACK week. <3
