A surprising baby shower
March 22, 2017
A save the date session skiing on a mountain, another surrounded by alpacas, a wedding in Cameroon, a little family at a fun fair … We can say that we are lucky to be able to take part of such incredible projects. Thanks to the best customers of all! But our most crazy mandate to date is probably the one the beautiful Sandrine and Mickaël gave us.
These two, they are beautiful, they are sparkling. They knew how to keep their child’s heart intact, to preserve it, in spite of the time spinning, in spite of the vagaries of life.
Last summer, Mickaël organized their baby shower. Enthused by the idea, their loved ones had no suspicion that instead of surprising the future mother, they would be speechless seeing what the two lovers had for them. Even their youngest girls learned their plan at the last minute. Sandrine and Mickaël would get married the same evening. The shower was only an excuse to reunite family and friends.
To maximize the effect of surprise, they chose to organize the event on a Friday and only put a few people in the confidence. The sugar shack Haut bois Normand opened their doors to them and the food truck of À la bonne vôtre took care of supplying the troops. Sandrine remained hidden nearby, in a motorized home in which she could see everyone without being seen.
From the beginning to the end, the day was full of love, excitement and happiness. Mother Nature has spoiled us with beautiful gray clouds (our favorites!) and only a few drops of rain. Near the cottage where the four girls were getting ready, there was an incredible field, covered with flowering trefoils and wildflowers. A verdant landscape, undulating, a landscape we couldn’t have dream of!
Sandrine & Mickaël, thank you for this moment overflowing with effervescence, complicit and joy. Thank you for taking us out of our comfort zone, to have surprised us too.
