Hotel Bennett Baby Shower: Chelsea Milford
If you know me in person, you’ve probably heard me say that I’m blessed in that everything I photograph is a celebration of some sort. From beachfront family portrait sessions to swanky restaurant openings to neighborhood Easter egg hunts, every one of my clients brings me in to celebrate and memorialize a momentous occasion in their life’s journey. This career has been nothing if not a joyous ride, y’all!
Last weekend I had a blast photographing Chelsea’s baby shower at the stunning Hotel Bennett in downtown Charleston and it was nothing if not the most happiest of afternoons. I first met Chelsea at her sister’s graduation ceremony from Ashley Hall, which you may remember if you follow along with my recent shoots. (Hi, Mom!) It was a pleasure to see this lady glowing as we celebrated the soon-to-be arrival of her new family member with a stunning and beautifully designed brunch.
And y’all, HATS OFF to Gathering Florals and Events. This was my first time working with their team and I was just blown away. The warm and sophisticated color palette and the adorable cakes (Are you dying over those? They’re even red velvet inside.) were two of my favorite things but even after photographing more than 300 weddings and heavens knows how many events, I am still absolutely a sucker for floral arrangements. These were the stuff summer dreams are made of!
After a wonderful brunch in the air-conditioned comfort of the rooftop Observatory at Hotel Bennett, which overlooks the hustle and bustle of King Street, Chelsea’s guests filled out a “Mommy or Daddy” game and the grateful momma-to-be opened presents. It was a comfortable yet elegant celebration and I am so happy with how the photos turned out, scroll down for the full sneak peek.
Congratulations again to Chelsea and Brad!
