Twelve girlfriends and I took on Nashville for my bachelorette party, and it was pretty much the best weekend ever. The girls did SO many amazing things for me and had so many surprises planned (post coming soon!), but I wanted to do something to surprise them as well.
If you know anything about me at all, it’s that you know how much I love pictures. I love to take them, be creative with them, scrapbook them, show them off … anything and everything. They capture memories and create new ones as well. So, for my surprise, I decided that I wanted to hire a photographer to come to the house we rented for a photo shoot! That way it could be something we would all be able to enjoy forever. After days of searching through Google and asking friends for recommendations, I finally discovered Maria Santini Photography, who so graciously agreed to come to town and spend an hour with 13 excited ladies.
We rocked our cowgirl boots for some photos, pink dresses and heels for some, and incorporated a few inside jokes (like the splits) into others. It was such a blast, and I would highly suggest doing this for your next girls getaway or bachelorette party!
LOVE THIS! Fellow bride to be here! Where did you get all of your cute dresses for this and your showers? i’m having trouble finding white/sparkly/pretty dresses for a curvy girl.
Hi! Congratulations on your engagement, fellow bride-to-be! I made the sparkly shirts for all my girls, and my dresses came from a few places. The white one in these photos is Jessica Simpson (from Dillard’s), and the other sparkly dresses/skirts I wore came from Express. I’m curvy also and they worked great! Hope this helps. Have fun, and enjoy the planning!
Hey, Blakely. Your bachelorette looked like a blast. I’d love to connect to get you a highlight video of your wedding for your blog, and include photos from the bachelorette, wedding planning, honeymoon, all of it. Tweet me if you’re interested. 🙂 Ariane
Done and done! Thank you!
That’s so awesome! You guys look great it looks like a lot of fun. Did you get any video of this great day?
