It was a gorgeous fall weekend in New York and I spent it celebrating my best friend, my partner in crime, my AEG! I have been planning her bridal shower and bachelorette party for what feels like a very long time and I can't believe it's over.
Look closely - my mom made the pearl vase! The invitation had a bow and pearls on it so I wanted to keep that theme a little bit. My mom collects antique wedding cake toppers so I pulled the one that looks most like our happy couple and surrounded it with pearls as well.
With our mommies.
My dad is famous for his word searches. AEG requested one for her shower months ago. It was the only game we played and dear old Dad made it extra challenging! He even bought and wrapped the prizes - Minimergency Kits for the first three gals to finish the puzzle. He's such a gem!
The dutiful groom showed up with a stunning bouquet and a big grin. Are they not the most gorgeous couple?!
Classic. I can't remember whether this was taken before or after the DJ played "Livin' on a Prayer", which was our chapter song, and all the Kappas were dancing, and I face-in-hands cried. Happy tears. It was just a really good moment.
The beautiful bride hailing a cab to Dorrian's. The only way to end our night!
The weekend was an absolute success... and I'm definitely going to do a separate post about the venders I worked with for the benefit of any other maids of honor/bridesmaids.
