Laila’s mother said while helping to plan her daughter’s wedding shower, that “Whether Laila is happy or sad, busy or not, she reads. Books are her best friends.” What a wonderful thing to say about someone, and what a beautiful thought! So it was no debate that the theme of Laila’s bridal shower would be her beloved books, and not just any books either. Laila’s theme would be “The Book of Love.” After bringing in her favorite colors, textures, flavors and people, a wedding shower to be remembered was born. The event was a flurry of hand-crafted personalizations, from quotes directly from the groom to his bride-to-be printed on art pieces on the walls, to faux book covers showcasing the couple’s engagement shoot along with custom coasters and invitations. Treats by Alicia Garcia of Lovable Foods showcased gourmet finger foods complete with healthy crudite platters, and custom desserts by Tristen Patriz of Sift! included miniature editions of Laila’s favorites, like key lime pie and lemon cake. It was a celebration filled to the brim with deep-seated meaning and genuine, loving sentiment, the perfect surroundings for Laila and her upcoming commitment!
