I love getting to photograph my brides before the big day. It gives me a chance to see them away from all of the stress that a wedding day can bring. Yesterday, I was thrilled to have the chance to photograph Francesca’s bridal shower at Acqua Restaurant. Francesca will be getting married in June, so this was a lovely introduction to her family and friends who will be supporting her on her wedding day.
The restaurant was filled with warmth, despite the cold and dreary weather outside. Acqua Restaurant, located in the downtown South Seaport area, has a great rustic feel to it. The party took over the entire restaurant, and there were many compliments on the food. (Including from me — the pesto gnocchi was great!) There were a few party games, but mainly it was a laid-back affair and guests got to visit with each other.
A few details I have to mention: the table centerpieces were beautiful, and beautifully practical. The ‘pot’ for the centerpiece was a colander, and inside were several potted herbs along with a pack of radish seeds. Instant kitchen garden! There were also daffodils on the table which begged for spring to appear. The table place card for each guest was a handwritten piece of muslin wrapped around a little bottle of olive oil, doing double duty as a take home favor.
I am so looking forward to photographing Francesca and Rory’s wedding. Let the countdown begin!
