Travel Themed Couples Wedding Shower – Lauren & Matt

post by matt

Before we talk about Lauren and Matt’s couple shower I’d like to say welcome to my ‘pictures-edited-for-blog’ debut! I have finally ventured out into the land of photoshop (which is normally Matt’s area of expertise), so here you go my first go at editing an event for the blog all by myself :D

A couple weekends ago Matt and I got to celebrate the upcoming wedding of Lauren & Matt at their couple’s wedding shower. Matt’s (my Matt) sister Becca is one of Lauren’s best friends and over the past few years we’ve really gotten to know both Lauren & Matt. Last year they decided that the only reason they weren’t married yet was because of the money needed to have a wedding, so they decided to elope. They had a beautiful little ceremony at the beach and then the real planning began. They will have their big wedding in May, which will be the first wedding Matt & I will be attending as guests (sans cameras) since we started our photography business!!

Since Lauren & Matt are already husband and wife, they already have everything they need for their household, which brings us to the theme of their couple shower, travel :) They are planning a fall honeymoon in Thailand, so the food and most of the gifts they received were centered around this fabulous county. I have to say I was ridiculously excited to make their gift since Thailand holds some of my best travel memories. Of course I forgot to get a pic of what we made for them…..but back to the shower. Becca, Lauren’s sister and her grandmother did an amazing job styling, cooking and hosting their shower that was held on a perfect spring day.

I adore the styling of the buffet table. The food was delicious, especially the Thai chicken salad.

Pictures of Lauren and Matt’s elopement were placed throughout the decor.

The wine punch was delicious and notice all the elephants in the decorations :)

And for the guys, beer and poker!

A globe for their guest book.

A little trivia to see how well you know the bride and groom.

Fun with their nephews.

Lauren + Matt + Buckeye, a happy little family.


That is one good looking family!

Happily in love.

So excited to join in the celebration next month guys!
