[Pretty Bridesmaids (minus our California girl) and my Man of Honor]

Last Sunday was somewhat of a surreal moment, it was my first bridal shower and the beginning of the festivities leading up to our December wedding.  My mom’s best girlfriends planned a gorgeous afternoon tea at The Drake (one of my favorite Chicago spots) and I was in heaven having so many of my favorite people in one room at the same time!  Here are some snapshots from the shower…

    One of your childhood friends came to Kiz to get a dress for your bridal shower! I’m so happy to see she wore it! Everything looks beautiful!
