I had so much fun creating this Great Gatsby themed wedding shower! The bride and groom live on the east coast, but the bride's family lives in Southern California, which was the location of the event. I was tasked with selecting a theme and wanted to make sure it played on both the bride's and groom's personalities, as the groom and male guests attended the shower as well. The bride is very into classy vintage, and had a huge childhood crush on Leonardo DiCaprio, so the Great Gatsby theme kind of jumped out at me. I added subtle theme touches here and there (can you spot the cameo from Mr. Jay Gatsby?), and a big statement piece. The family is huge and very big on photos, so a photo backdrop was necessary! The biggest surprise was that I booked the photographer for an extra hour before the party to do a mini engagement-style photo shoot with the bride and groom before the event, since they never got to take any back home.
