From the ladies behind Style Me Pretty : After attending the bridal shower, Jennifer Palpallatoc's grandmother told the blogger that she should have just gotten married that day, because it was the most beautiful event that she's ever seen. Looking at these photographs by Lance Nicoll, and we think Granny is onto something! Angela Maria Events crafted a gorgeous celebration at the White Magnolia Barn, including a flower crown station with Poppy + Mint Floral Company. From the centerpieces, to that work-of-art cake, to the ladies in their flower crowns, this is certainly one pretty event. Granny – and SMP – approved!

From the bride-to-be, Jenn of Haute Off the Rack... My bridal shower was everything I had ever envisioned and more thanks to the amazing work of Angela Marie Events. The whole idea stemmed from a work trip that I attended last year at the MacKenzie-Childs headquarters in Aurora, New York, where we took pottery painting classes, floral arranging classes, and even learned how to make flower crowns. It was so much fun learning something new and getting to be creative while clearing my mind and enjoying snacks and rosé. I feel like that's something we forget to do as adults. We get so caught up with work and daily life that we forget to take time for ourselves and create beautiful things just because we want to and not because we have to. I loved the classes so much that I wanted to re-create the experience for my friends. What better time to do something new with your friends than when you have them all in the same place at the same time at your bridal shower!? Angela loved the idea and put together the most beautiful floral themed shower that I've ever seen. The whole shower was perfect down to every little detail – from the dreamy invitations and vintage plates to the elegant, barn-style venue and the stunning floral centerpieces that literally cascaded over the tabletops. Not to mention the fact that Poppy & Mint provided us with most exquisite selection of flowers to decorate our crowns with, which we wore the whole shower. In addition to the refreshing cocktails and arts and crafts, my friends know that I would never associate myself with a party that didn't serve plenty of delicious appetizers and desserts. In fact, for dessert, we served three different cake flavors. Why have vanilla when you can have carrot, lemon, and strawberry!?
