LJO to LJK: My Surprise Work Bridal Shower

My Wedding

I have just ONE more wedding post I wanted to write before switching gears for a few months until I can share our actual wedding! Two weeks before May 2, while on our annual team retreat, my sweet coworkers at Southern Weddings threw me a surprise bridal shower/birthday party (it was the day before my 25th birthday, after all!). Since I recorded my Texas and New York showers on Something Pretty, I certainly couldn’t let this one go without a mention! The month leading up to the wedding was pretty busy in the office, so I was really touched that the ladies I work with took time out of our packed retreat schedule to make me feel so loved. The talented gals at Rebecca Rose Events apparently studied my blog and social media to come up with the perfect theme (and they hit it out of the park, if I do say so myself!), and the sweet-as-can-be Julia Wade captured the whole thing!

    I love how each of your showers was so different and still YOU! The cocktail napkins are the cutest!

  3. What a sweet, sweet surprise for everyone to pull off! I love how all of the showers you were blessed with were unique but still quite cohesive – and all so beautiful and intentionally planned!!
