Serenity Garden Tea House Bridal Shower

A Lovely Tea Party Bridal Shower at the Serenity Garden Tea House in West Palm Beach, Florida


A Simple Bridal Shower at the Serenity Garden Tea House in West Palm Beach, Florida


On Sunday, March 6th, I had the pleasure of capturing and attending Carrie’s tea party bridal shower, as her wedding photographer but primarily as her friend. The tea party was held at the Serenity Tea House in West Palm Beach, FL. This quaint and adorable tea house was the perfect place for her intimate bridal shower. Their assortment of tea and delectable treats had us all in love with this charming tea house. My favorites were, the pineapple coconut black tea and the warm, fresh out of the oven, melt in your mouth, scones!!

Carrie and I have been friends since we were toddlers. We were both home-schooled and went to the same church growing up along with most of our friends that attended the bridal shower. It was so nice catching up with some of my life-long friends and celebrating the lovely bride-to-be! You may remember her from one of my recent engagement shoots, the Cinderella-inspired fairytale engagement shoot. One of my favorite shoots to date! Carrie, thank you for letting me be a part of this special day. So excited for your wedding!

Emily (soon-to-be) Hitchcock!

Emily’s vintage bridal shower was breathtaking. Oh my goodness! Every detail was unique, told a story and engaged the guests. It beautify told Emily and Caleb’s story!

One of my favorite details: framed notes from Caleb scattered around the house stating his favorite things about Emily! Seriously!? Wait till you see what he said about his lovely bride-to-be!

Emily and Caleb met in 2011, at Palm Beach Atlantic University were they attended. Emily was actually the first person Caleb met on his first day at PBA! They became friends over the next two years.

In April of 2013, Caleb began to see the girl he had once identified as my sister as more than just a friend. However, he was faced with the unavoidable knowledge that she had just committed to a year of no dating.

So Caleb waited… and waited… and after a summer of letters, a semester of group hang-outs, and months distant converstaions, January 22 came and the wait was over. Caleb asked Emily’s father for his blessing and planned the most amazing proposal!

The rest is history.

Emily has a special place in my heart. She has been my best friend since pajama day in pre-school. We have been through many four square games, summer mission trips, first boyfriends, bad haircuts, late night talks and oh so many shopping trips! She stood by my side as my maid of honor two years ago and in less than two months I will be standing by her side as she says “i do” to the man of her dreams! I cannot express how happy I am that she has found “the one!”  MY BEST FRIEND IS GETTING MARRIED!! AHH SO EXCITED!

Love you Emily!
