I've whispered about it briefly on the blog, even gave a quick sneak peak, but I can't share our wedding photos just yet. So, in an effort to indulge, I thought it would be fun to share some of the events leading up to the big day. First up, the shower!
I'm extremely naive when it comes to weddings. I just haven't been to that many, so when it came to my own, I didn't have many notions of how things should be. Only my imagination. When it came time to plan the shower, my Mom and Maid of Honor asked for a bit of inspiration as a jumping off point. My answer: Kate Spade! The perfect combination of sweet and spice. Preppy and girlie. Love and independence.
What I arrived to was a beautiful backyard shower adorned with a spread of goodies, a mimosa bar and all the quintessential fun and games you might expect. Planning a wedding can be so isolating, but it felt tribal to see all these women coming together to support me. To send me off into marriage.
It was beautiful. I felt completely giddy. Completely spoiled. Completely loved.
Next up: The Rehearsal Dinner
