BRIDAL SHOWER part 1 – Let Them Eat Cake

Photography by- Jana Williams

Initially I wanted to do one large post recapping my bridal shower, but after going thru the hundres of amazing photos taken by the lovely Jana Williams, I  realized that 1 post is simply not enough! I wanted to share with you all the special little moments that touched me, and made this day so memorable. Each post will cover different aspects of my bridal shower, but lets start off with the details & decor.

My bridal shower was held at the Gordon Ramsay restaurant of The London hotel, in Hollywood, which happens to be one of my favorite boutique hotels in Los Angeles.  I instantly fell in love with the pale blue interiors + gold accents- can we say vintage glam???  If there is one thing my girlfriends know about me is that I could eat cake for breakfast, macarons for lunch, and cupcakes for dinner….  I suffer from a MAJOR sweet tooth. I walked into the hotel wide eyed as I was welcomed with glittered macarons, passionfruit macarons, macarons with my initials, and ummm did I just see a cupcake topped off with a macaron??? And of course the most beautiful & delicate pink ruffled cakes! and yes together we laughed, we reminisced, and we at cake! LET THEM EAT CAKE

Keep posted as you meet my girlfriends  in the next post- Bridal Shower Part 2 will be up in a few!


Special thanks to my amazing bridesmaids for organizing& planning – linette, Janey, Annie, Caroline, Michelle, and a big thanks to Sara Sohn aka MommaSohn


  • Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    I appreciate you currently taking a period to evaluation my
    profile. I hope you feel free to consider a look
    at my own blog as well for more information and practical
    tips :: Toddler clothes
