Baum Bride Mixer

Back in July I had the honor of planning and styling a bride mixer for a good friend and talented photographer, Ashley Baumgartner. She came to me with this sweet idea to treat her past, current and future brides to an afternoon of champagne, sweets and mini photo shoots for all couples in attendance. As soon as I heard her pitch I was hooked!

We started on plans, style boards and assembled all the best vendors for the event. So much thought went into every detail for this event. The location, dessert menu, color scheme, activities and so much more!

To top it off we had pressed fondant cookies made special. One of my favorite details made by Traylor Park Bakery!

Ashley finished the event with a complimentary shoot for all couples, and of course she snuck in a few photos herself :) She also sent each bride home with a “bride” mug and an adorable goodie bag!

What a thoughtful way to celebrate with clients!
