a summer shower

posted on: July 17, 2011

my best friend since first grade is getting married this november and this weekend marked the beginning of the festivities. despite the actual showers outside and the power going out for the entire afternoon, bridal shower number one went fairly smoothly! everything and everyone looked great and the lunch was delicious. it was an emotional day, but ultimately so much fun. i'm throwing the next shower with the other bridesmaids, so i'll have lots of diy decorations to share! thought i'd share a couple pictures from the afternoon, enjoy :)

  10. Such beautiful pictures! Glad you girls had such a great time despite the few hiccups. I have my fingers crossed that one of my friends takes the plunge soon (because I know for SURE that it won't be me going first)...I've actually never been to a wedding :(. Hope you're doing well love, and sorry for the inconsistent commenting, I'm drowning under school! Glad to see you've been doing so well :)
