Cooking Bridal Shower with Cooking Lessons

Meals can be a very daunting task for anyone to create, let alone a newlywed. Natalie from Love in October created this cooking themed photo shoot to show off a great way to learn how to cook with all your closest girl friends.  Inspired by her newly engaged friend who was so excited to get married and learn how to cook, Natalie decided to combine a cooking bridal shower with cooking lessons.  She wanted a tea party feel with a touch of farmer’s markets, so she found a rustic backdrop and used a feminine color palette. We love the result!
