Okay you guys, so I'm about to go a little crazy with this series and I'm zero percent sorry about it.
Christopher and I are the luckiest humans on the earth, because we've been blessed with the greatest family and best friends two people could ask for, and these folks made not only our wedding itself, but everything leading up to the event, a total success and joy.
And thus, this series was born. I'm gonna go through all of the events, parties, and details that led up to "the big day" and I'm going to call it "Whimsical Wedding" because I love whimsy and I love weddings so that just seemed right.
To begin? My bridal shower.
My sister-in-law Lee and our family friend Alison planned and executed the most gorgeous, fun, beautiful shower for me. The decorations were beyond adorable (pencils with our wedding date on them?! Amazing!), the food was perfect, and the games *just* present enough without being obnoxious or overwhelming to my often socially anxious self. Plus, my mom made individual, personalized cakes for each member of the bridal party in attendance (including me! yahoo!) and really what more could a lady ask for?
It was super fun and I felt so lucky to have a great deal of the most important people in my life there to celebrate me and Chris (and J!) and our future together!!
And now? Onto the photos!...
