Bridal Shower

So far, one of the best things about being engaged is the number of parties that get thrown in your honor. Showers, welcome-to-the-family gatherings, bachelorette parties … more excuses to wear pretty dresses! From casual to semi-formal, the celebrations have been keeping me busy in the last month of the nuptial countdown.

Even though my bridal party lives 3,000 miles away, I am fortunate enough to have a team of amazing friends in North Carolina who have taken it upon themselves to organize, plan and host all these bridal traditions.

The ladies threw me an amazing bridal shower last month, full of all my favorite Southerners, lots of food and LOTS of presents. Here is a picture of me when I walked in and saw all the gifts…

The following are some snapshots taken during the party, from my practically-professional photographer friend Ashlie. Check out her blog!

Sugar cookies for dipping in chocolate…

Deviled eggs…

Pesto, mozzarella and tomato bruschetta…

Fine china…

White tulips in white milk glass vases…


The cheese plate…

The spread…

One of my talented friends made this cool banner from pages of an old cookbook, which she covered with pictures I had pinned on my “Love” Pinterest page. So thoughtful!

My cheeks hurt from laughing…

To hold the dress

I couldn’t do ANYTHING without my women friends, so here’s to them! And another special thanks to Ashlie for taking so many photos. (Below: me and Seton)

To those who organized and those who came to celebrate, THANK YOU! Now, on to the 28th…

xoxo
