Bride Alex’s longtime best friend and Maid of Honor asked me to photograph this SURPRISE bridal shower. Beautifully coordinated in pink and black, the theme was carried throughout the signage of the food and drink and gift stations, which were adorable with black frames, and pink and white striped mats inside, with a description of each station. The cupcakes were an assortment of vanilla and chocolate, decorated in pink and white, topped with music notes, and beautifully arranged on a variety of cupcake stands. The invitations combined music notes, and pink and white stripes. The favors were a tulle bag of chocolate (Alex’s favorite!) tied with pink ribbon and a little card that said “All you need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” -Charles Schultz.The food was elegantly provided by Aprile’s European Restaurant (an Italian restaurant in North Chelmsford, MA) and they served a variety of salads, pastas, soups, and a champagne bar.
