LJO to LJK: My New York Bridal Shower

My Wedding

Exactly a week after my first bridal shower in Texas, I got to enjoy another shower–this time in Syracuse (where there was still snow on the ground!), with my soon-to-be in-laws! My future mother-in-law, sisters-in-law, and even nieces worked together to plan this celebration at the adorable Sherwood Inn. While my Texas shower guests were mostly my family and people I’ve known for years, this shower was mostly people I barely know yet. This made it feel different, but it was so special, since everyone there knows and loves Dave, and it meant the world to me to feel so welcomed. The entire afternoon, I felt overwhelmingly thankful to be marrying into this wonderful family!

Here’s a look at this lovely afternoon–did I mention it was Something Pretty-themed? :)

    Gorgeous! You look so like your in-laws, you fit in perfectly!!
    What beautiful, beautiful showers!! It makes me hope someone in my family gets engaged soon so I can throw them something as lovely as these.
