Bridal Shower Celebration – Brunch with the Bride

Bride To Be On Swing In Field Petting Donkey at Bridal Shower Photo

Can we start with the donkeys? Because how adorable are donkeys with flowers in their satchels? Too cute! Right?! Okay, let me back up a bit. We are so excited to be a part of this incredible bridal shower for one of our favorite Asheville event planners, Caroline! Caroline works with Mingle Events! It’s her turn to tie the knot. So her Mingle gal pals, Candace, and Ashley planned the most beautiful celebration for our dear Caroline!

Along with a dream team of vendors, Candace and Ashley created the most beautiful bridal brunch we have ever been to. Greeted by Poppy and Bean as you enter the new barn at The Venue at Mills River. Grab a mimosa from the mimosa cart or a bloody mary and get your gab on with all your gal pals. Graze through the massive charcuterie display in the middle of the barn. Then make your way to a cozy and gorgeously styled seating area around the barn. And don’t forget to pop by the dessert table for a cake pop or heart cookie.

We had an amazing time celebrating Caroline! After opening gifts, Caroline posed with Poppy and Bean on the quaint tree swing. Then spent time chatting with all her friends and family. It was a lovely afternoon. Check out all the beautiful details below! And be sure to check out all the wonderful vendors below.
