Showering the Bride

Mimosa bar, great life long friends, and a pretty bride-to-be... what more could you ask for?

We celebrated Laura & Stephen's upcoming wedding {58 days to go!} this past Saturday afternoon with a bridal shower planned by some fantastic women.

Laura got to experience the awkward fun of opening presents for an audience by herself and she got some pretty awesome gifts! I loved this bowl from her grandmother - it was gorgeous.

All of these girls are fantastic.

& yes, I am standing on the hearth to try and be on the same height level as everyone else.

The girls on the bride's side of the family:

It was the perfect weekend for a girls only shower - there were quite a few mother/daughter sets in attendance! I got to hang out with these two but we were definitely missing my future sister-in-law, Amy.

July is going to be such a fun month!

Seriously, by the time we're both hitched, we're going to have dozens of pictures like this. I'm totally ok with it.

Less than two months to go - can't wait!


  1. My best friend and I got married 3 months apart and that was so much fun! I love that y'all are getting married closer than that--a summer of weddings for sure!
