Following her God-Sister's engagement, Ashley wanted to create for her a bachelorette photoshoot opportunity she would forever cherish. Drawing inspiration from her destination wedding in Italy the name "La Bridal Mafia" was born. After a bachelorette weekend getaway at the Mayflower in Washington D.C. the surprise photoshoot was revealed...
Read all about the inspiration and design details of the "La Bridal Mafia" bachelorette photoshoot below.
"Being a wedding planner, I started brainstorming about this photoshoot not long after my god sister, Trenée, became engaged. Of course, I believe she deserves the world so I knew it had to be spectacular. When she announced that she would be having a destination wedding in Italy we came up with the name "La Bridal Mafia".
I envisioned an elegant setting with her favorite ladies dressed in black and the bride-to-be in all white. I truly think simple, clean looks are always stunning.
We spent the weekend in Washington, D. C. at the Mayflower Hotel and closed with this surprise photoshoot. The Mayflower served as a gorgeous backdrop, filled with marble, gold and lovely chandeliers. Michelle was the perfect photographer to bring my vision to life and I knew this would be a chic, fun way to celebrate before the big day in Italy!"
