Derby-Inspired California Styled Shoot


Hey y’all! I missed this little blog last week, but taking the week off to focus on other things was much needed and very helpful. I’m excited to be back today with this beautiful styled shoot from 410 Studio–a bridal shower inspired by the opening day of the Del Mar Horse Races in San Diego. The sunny colors, gorgeous flowers, fabulous hats, and darling dessert table are perfect for a summer shower, and you know how much I love horses!

Themed bridal showers are always so much fun–both to attend, and to admire! I’m thinking a bridal shower inspiration board might be around the corner… any theme suggestions? :)
