Samantha's Bridal Shower at the Saltwater Grille in South Portland,Maine

When Samantha's mother contacted me about photographing Samantha's bridal shower as a surprise, I immediately jumped at the opportunity to see her again and to meet all of her gals. (I captured her engagement photos last year, with her husband to be Ryan, at Two Lights State Park and had an absolute blast with them. Check it out again by clicking here!) Add in the fact that the shower was held at the stunning, oceanside Saltwater Grille in South Portland, Maine, and I was giddy before I even got there!

Samantha's mother and maid of honor planned a really lovely bridal shower for Samantha with fun games, a mimosa bar, and lots of delicious food. One of my favorite moments included pin the ring on Samantha where her guests tried to place the ring on her finger on a canvas print of one of their engagement photos. It definitely resulted in lots of laughs! There were also Samantha Scattergories which included several laugh worth moments over sand, sailors, and sandals as everyone came up with words beginning with the letter "S" to fill in the blanks.

I am so excited to see all of these ladies again next month as Samantha & Ryan tie the knot!! Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Google + to see their wedding sneak peek as soon as I post it. In the meantime, here is a look back at the bridal shower. What an amazing day it was!
