Pretty Pink & Aqua Backyard Baby Shower

Expecting mom Casey, and her sister, Courtney Reed, are owners of Help Me Get Hitched, an event planning business, so of course Courtney couldn’t wait to plan a beautiful baby shower for her sister. It was a challenge for Casey not to get involved, but Courtney certainly did an amazing job flying solo. She took inspiration from baby Brecklyn’s cream and pale pink nursery (which you can see here!) and chose a vintage backyard baby shower in pink with pops of aqua. Both the nursery and this shower are so soft, sweet, and feminine. As you can see, the setup was perfect and everything was ready to go…that is until the rain storm that started five minutes before the party! This certainly changed the plans, but guests just moved inside for a cozier experience and enjoyed delicious homemade food and desserts. Despite the rain, On to Baby member Nicole Paulson Photography captured these lovely photos. To see more from this pretty shower, stop by the full gallery!
