there are really no adequate words to describe the unbelievably AMAZING bridal shower my sister, sister-in-law, and two best friends threw for me a few weekends ago in california. like, seriously. just look at these photos! what!?! i still look through them and am just amazed by every single detail and beauty of it all AND the fact that they did it all for me! i am blessed beyond measure, that is for sure. they all know how much i love little details so they went over-the-top in every. single. aspect of the night with intricacies that i appreciated more than they will ever know. when i first walked out into the yard, i’m pretty sure my jaw just about hit the floor. i was seriously in awe at everything in front of my eyes that i immediately ran back inside to grab my camera because light was escaping us and the beautifulness NEEDED to be captured on my camera before it was too dark.
the table settings were impeccable and glamourous (so in love with the green bottles/vases and black & white striped runners). the gorgeous market lights were strung just for my shower by heather’s dad! the escort table (yes, they had an escort table!) had custom designed name tags for every guest. the appetizers and dinner (mostly made by the talented janelle) were insanely delicious. the food presentation was incredibly detailed (how cute are those little glittery pom poms?!). they had an italian soda bar, a bellini bar (complete with black & white striped straws), a candy station (with a ridiculously cute backdrop that heather made!), AND a dessert bar (with hundreds of homemade goodies & an ombre cake)! they had customized mint favors at every place setting, beautiful and classy balloons (of which the hanging garlands were slaved over by my sister for 3 days!), matching sugar paper napkins, customized labels for every dish/drink/dessert (taylor did ALL of the design for the night and i loved that it was all cohesive from the invitation to the signage to the name tags!)…i really could go on and on and on about everything. it was a truly unforgettable night and i am forever grateful to my hostesses (and everyone else who helped!) for going to great lengths in planning this event and for making me feel so special in this exciting time of my life! love you guys SO. MUCH.
