I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Happy first day of summer!!! It’s official. Today is the first day of freedom (at least that’s the way it used to be, right?). I thought we’d kick off the season with a gorgeous shoot styled, coordinated and designed by Natalie of A Good Affair Wedding & Event Production with photography by Marilyn Nakazato Photography.

As you’ll see, the images are of a brunch event, meant for either a rehearsal or a shower. This is the point at which I’d like to interject: what do you think of co-ed showers? I LOVE the idea. Bryan and I have a great group of couple friends, and I’ve always thought it would be a blast to include the men in the fun (not that they all are looking for a chance to have to dress up in a suit…but whatevs. They deal when it’s important, right?). I thought I’d ask you all…what type of showers did/are you having? Were any of them co-ed? Did you love it or hate it? Would you like to have the guys around?

While you mull it over, here are some gorg images, with lots of talented vendor credits below!
