Samantha’s Baby Shower | Hendersonville, TN Photographer

When Steve and I got married back in 2011, almost none of our friends were married and/or had kids.  It’s been so fun to watch relationships grow from dating to engaged, then married.  And now, we have the pleasure of watching our friends have kids of their own!  It’s about time, you guys!  Haha!  Last weekend I attended a baby shower for my friend Samantha, and was asked by the host and my dear friend, Jenni, to take some photos while I was there.  I normally don’t photograph parties and events, but since it was for a friend, I made an exception.

The shower was early in the day, so we were provided with an amazing brunch spread!  Even though I’m in the middle of a 21 Day Fix program, I still splurged a little and had one of the delicious chocolate frosted donuts.  Shh, don’t tell anyone!

We also played a baby shower game where everyone wears a clothespin and is instructed not to say the word “baby.”  If you catch someone saying it, you get to take their pin.  As you can see from the bottom of this post, I won the game by taking 8 pins!  Haha!  I’m so competitive when it comes to baby shower games.

My friend, Jenni, did such an amazing job hosting the shower at her beautiful home.  All the decorations were so adorable, and the food was delicious!  Her co-host, Darilynn, unfortunately had to stay home sick , so we made sure to Facetime her so she could see how everything turned out.  It certainly was a great time with an amazing group of ladies!  Congratulations on your little baby boy, Samantha!

Lingerie Party (Sorry guys)

Well, it’s finally the end of two very busy weeks.  The stress joy of the wedding is over, all of our out of town guests have gone home, and now Steve and I can just look forward to our honeymoon on Tuesday.  We thoroughly enjoyed having all our family and friends come all the way to Tennessee for our wedding, and especially having my parents stay with us for an extra 5 days, but it is kinda nice having our house to ourselves again, and letting everything fall back to it’s normal pace.

So I’m going to start this series of wedding blog posts with my lingerie party.  My wonderful best friend and matron of honor, Elizabeth, planned two amazing showers for me (lingerie and bridal) with wonderful food, friends & family, decorations, and (of course) dessert!

Here is the beautiful table setting I saw as I walked in the door to my lingerie party.

Look at these awesome cookies!!!!  Some are bras with necklaces and others are undies!!! (Again, sorry guys.)

She also had some beautiful mini cupcakes with pink roses on top.

Yummy chocolate covered strawberries….I had a few of these.  Well, actually I had a few of everything.

And these awesome “bra” cupcakes.  I didn’t see it at first, but if you look at 2 cupcakes together they look like a bra!  You’ll see it better in a later photo.

Our friend Jen made this incredible chicken fettuccine bow-tie pasta with sun-dried tomatoes.  I die!  I had 3 helpings of this, I think.

And who can forget the delicious sherbet punch!!!  Mmmmm.  My mouth is watering right now for this stuff!

Alright, Elizabeth, you convinced me.  I’ll have a mimosa too. 🙂

After eating (and drinking) all those delicious treats, we played bridal themed Pictionary. (That looks weird….is that spelled correctly?)

Jenni was the best one at Pictionary  because she is a teacher and is used to writing or drawing on large marker boards.

We had a fun time guessing all the drawings.  And when we ran out of the papers that tell you what to draw, we started making up our own things.

Then it was time for presents!!  (Guys may want to stop reading at this point.)

New lingerie is always super fun!  Actually, new anything is always super fun.  Unless it’s a new mosquito bite, or a new speeding ticket, or a new drool spot on your wall (I get that last one a lot).

And I got some CUTE stuff!

Elizabeth gave me some very risque lingerie… be glad that this picture is small enough to where you can’t really see the pictures on the front of those boxes.  Awkward!

Here’s a better view of those “bra” cupcakes.  What a cute idea!  Thank you, Elizabeth, for such a wonderful lingerie party!  Steve I really appreciates it!
