About a month before the wedding two of my bridesmaids, Emily & Elizabeth threw me a shower. This shower was originally was to be in June but decided that might be a little late in Elizabeth's pregnancy for her to travel. Good thing we moved it because Annika was born about 3 weeks before the date we had scheduled for the shower.
This is the awesome cake they got. Perfectly beachy and getting us all in the mood for a destination wedding!
And wow there were a lot of gifts! Here are a few of the highlights --- Read best pictures of me not looking like a fool!
These were placemats my mom made me. She actually made them YEARS ago when Elizabeth and Steve got married and thought hmmm Stephanie will get married eventually! :)
Big plans for this mini dessert set for Thanksgiving!
Sarah and Brice got us this monogram as a wedding gift. Now that we are home, can't wait to hang it at the top of the stairs!
Elizabeth did her best with the few bows we have to make a bow bouquet!
Some other highlights for the day. I finally got to meet baby Charlotte! With mom, Laura.
And baby Collin! With mom, Sarah.
Others I haven't seen in far too long, Jayna.
Also a surprise visit from Lynn here with Elizabeth and Emily.
My mom also came.
And my new sister-in-law and mother-in-law came all the way from Chicago too!
What a great way to celebrate the upcoming wedding but catching up with friends and family was the best part!
