Real Couples // A Whimsical Shower for Two Brides: Kori + Sam

Kori and Sam's beautiful bridal shower took place at Peony's Envy, a magical peony garden in NJ.  Kori is a floral designer and owner of Colly Flowers, so it's no surprise that their celebration took place amongst hundreds of peonies at peak bloom. Flowers continued to be central to the theme as friends and family crafted their own flower crowns and explored the peony garden for hidden raffle tickets. Kori and Sam are undoubtedly loved, and this was the perfect gathering for family and friends to honor their upcoming union.
