A bridal shower close to my heart… a BIG congratulations to MY SISTER, Ali who is getting married next month! Her shower was yesterday at Orchard Hill at Old Westbury Gardens. Orchard Hill is an old rustic farmhouse set on historic property of Old Westbury Gardens, having over 200 acres of lush gardens, lakes and paths to walk around on. The venue holds special meaning as Ali, as she spent a lot of time there during her high school years hanging out with friends and taking photographs. The day turned out bright and sunny and the shower was just beautiful. For Ali’s invitations I wanted to go for an antique look, having a modern twist. I was able to bring those two looks together with the mix of metallic papers, using the stone paper to represent the gardens then adding the metal frame highlighting a small photo of the venue.
