Elegant Garden Wedding Shower at the Madison Hotel Conservatory, New Jersey - Delaney Dobson Photography - smitten-mag.com_0515

Danielle is a young and beautiful wedding planner who has spent months planning a stunning wedding this upcoming May.  She was not, however, allowed to be apart of the meticulous planning of her bridal shower. This task was left up to her mother, bridesmaids, and mother-in-law.  It helped to have had some of her maids specialize in wedding planning as well.  They created a beautiful Secret Garden party overflowing with extraordinary details, breathtaking handmade desserts, and unique gift ideas for their lovely bride-to-be. Guests plucked their names off of a wooden name board decorated with baby’s breath and entered into a bright and green paradise with glass ceilings, chandeliers, and elegant hanging plants.  The desert table consisted of cake pops, cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, cupcakes, candies, donuts, and a stunning vanilla cake with pink and orange flowers and fondant icing. As if that wasn’t enough, the dessert table sat in front of a backdrop of hanging carnations that the bridesmaids created themselves. Danielle walked into the conservatory with excited eyes and after having seen her Pinterest board come to life in front of her, she sat with her friends and family and enjoyed the party in her honor. In her words, the day was “beautiful and filled with so much love.” Everything was handmade and only some items were purchased on Etsy. The bridesmaids were at a flower market in the morning purchasing all of the flowers and almost all of the desserts were hand made.
