Blush and metallic girl’s baby shower
Remember back when we shared the maternity sesh Megan Welker snapped of the gorgeous Ala of Love Ala? She’d gone through so much to become a mama-to-be, and having her close friend document the day was so special! Well, time sure flies because now we’re here to show off her sweet blush baby shower Megan also photographed and the crew at Beijos Events put together!
Ala says, I had imagined that day for years, never knowing if I’d ever be blessed to even have a baby shower, so watching it all come together was an absolute dream for me. My husband and I had been trying to have our first child since January 2013. After 6 IVF cycles, we were finally successful and are expecting our little girl this November. Our baby shower was inspired by a special song I started listening to years ago whenever I was struggling to find hope. And now it was the theme of her first celebration and we cannot wait to play it for her once she’s here!
What a pretty table!
My dear friend Megan Welker, along with the ultra talented Jacquelyn Kazas of Beijos Events, took on the huge task of styling the whole thing. I gave them the lyrics to the song and a couple colors I liked and they came up with the rest! It’s amazing how their minds work. The leather and the gold and the soft floral palette came together so perfectly. The acrylic plates with song titles that had baby in them was such a cute ode to my DJ husband and the adorable lounge area, styled so perfectly in pinks and nudes just took everything up a notch!
All the lovely florals are by Ellamah, who Ala met back in 2008 when they were planning their weddings.
Thanks for letting us follow your journey, Ala!
