When Amanda’s aunt, Julie, called me and asked if I would photograph her niece’s bridal shower at her mother’s home I was really excited to say that I was available! I pulled up to the gorgeous suburban home for the Chicagoland bridal shower and could immediately hear the musicians playing the harp and violin. I’m a sucker for these string instruments (I had these on my wedding day!) and was a music major for a few years in college, so I was really excited to see them there. It was a beautiful, sunny day! Under a large tent, they had a pretty chair set up next to the gift table for Amanda to use as she opened her gifts along with several round tables with pink tablecloths and wooden chairs set up for their guests. They hired a caterer to provide a delicious buffet of food and sweet treats for dessert. Amanda had such a wonderful Chicagoland bridal shower that was full of her friends and family members!
