Here Comes the BrideSunday, May 01, 2011
One of my best pals is getting married in just 28 days. I am thrilled to take part in her big day and stand by her side. Saturday was the first of many wedding festivities to take place over the next four weeks, the bridal shower. Her maids of honor, Kathryn and Mary, did a fantastic job planning and executing a shower for Elyse that included not only her friends but both Elyse's (the bride) and Bill's (the groom) families. Getting 40+ people together is never an easy feat and they did a fantastic job. The theme was April Showers which was definitely fitting considering the 10+ inches of rain we have gotten in the past couple of weeks.
Look at some of the great details they put together.
We also had mini petits fours from a bakery in Florissant. Petits Fours have a special place in Elyse and many of her bridesmaid's hearts, they were a special treat in college and it was great to incorporate them into the shower. Her new surname will be Huber so that is what the "H" is for. :)
This is the bride modeling her new apron my grandma made her. It turned out that the dishes she picked out somewhat matched the fabric I chose for her apron. I heart great coincidences!
