Wedding Wednesday - 02/09/13 Charlotte Bridal Shower

I've been SO excited to share all of the details of my first bridal shower!  

Special thank you to the hostesses - Lauren, Emily and Tara and for Lauren's Mom for allowing the shower to take place at her beautiful home. 

Also thank you to my Cousin and MOH for the below pictures!

Seriously, the most adorable champagne bar EVER.  Pinterest worthy, ha!

No party is complete without champagne and fun glasses!

They went crazy on all of the details!  Framed pictures of Kevin and I throughout the home.  Adorable invitation.  A ring cut out on the water bottles!  I'm telling yall I have some amazingly creative friends!

Gorgeous!


A candle with my maiden name initials (also happens to be my SIL initials as I've mentioned!).  There is Kev and I again!


Super cute cookies as favors!


The tags for the food had a cut out of a wedding dress.  Have I mentioned that one of the hostesses sells craft supplies to the major craft stores?  Oh yes!

Stunning flowers.  Everything of course was in our wedding colors.



My friend Lauren opening the hostess gift.  Go Vino wine glasses.

Kevin's Mama!  I think this is such a cool picture of her!

Up close of the water bottles!  Check that diamond out!  Bling!

My Mama!

Pictures of opening gifts are never usually flattering, haha!


My friend BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB!

My cray cray SIL Emily and I.

Group picture is essential in my world!  I treasure this picture so much as it is of my favorite ladies minus some who could not join us.  

Hostesses with the mostess! 
Tara, Lauren, Me, Emily
MOH came down from Raleigh with Bbbbbbb.  See that cute G on the front door?  Of course they made that too!

My bridesmaids minus two - one in Raleigh and one in Philly!  My girls are presch!
Kimmy, Lauren, Tara, Me, Emily, Kelly, Beth
And bless my white legs.  They need help before the wedding weekend.

Moving on...

Me with my Mama and Future Mama-in-Law!

BM's!

Add my sweet Aunt in there!  We call her DA - drunk Aunt. Haha this is really just to pick on her.  We love her a ton!


The family that was there!  My Aunt Susan came in from Florida, SIL Emily from South Carolina, Mom from Maryland and Cousin Laura from Richmond.  Thankful for them.  It meant the world to me that they all traveled to be there.

My Avenue friends!  Jennifer, Emily (almost Ave friend!) and Wendy (and baby boy due April 1)!

A HUGE thank you to all of my sweet family and friends.  You all have made this wedding journey so much more than we can imagine.  I always say this but Kevin and I are rich in friends and family and we are SO thankful for that.
