Real Life Bride: Week 48.5

Wednesday, October 6, 2010



Yes, I already posted this week but there is just so much happening! I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I had a wonderful bridal shower "weekend" in Los Angeles, and we just got some photos from the shower hosted by my lovely bridesmaids with the coordinating help of the amazing Beth Helmstetter. As you can imagine the shower was absolutely beautiful and while we can't share too many details (it may be featured in an upcoming issue of a wedding magazine!), I did want to share some of the photos from our photographer Steve Steinhardt.

The hostesses arranged for a little photobooth action and my friends and I just ate it up.
Here are a few shots...

 
  


 

My mom had made tons of very gourmet tea sandwiches and scones, we had fresh peach bellinis and a vodka infused ice tea, and Carmela Ice Cream provided homemade ice cream sandwiches, cones or cups! Guests were asked to write their marriage advice for me and then were suprised when I had to read them aloud and guess who had written it! Most were very helpful...some were definitely embarassing making for a blushed bride and lots of laughs. Thanks to everyone for making this such a special day filled with love, laughter...and lots of great food!

Thank you! The dress is from JCrew - it's the Rugby stripe Ginny dress.
