Let the Festivities Begin!

I feel like the title of this post is somewhat repetative.  Over the past year, this will be wedding number three we have been blessed to be apart of (See Wedding #1 and Wedding #2)  This wedding will be no different than the others- simply beautiful.  Last May, Jarrett asked my oh-so-precious Ashley to be his wife- and she said 'yes' :)  With the Big Day being exactly 2 months away (2/16/2011) all the 'important' business is just about taken care of and all the fun stuff is well underway!  This past Sunday marked the first of her showers- The Bridal Shower- hosted by her Bridesmaids.  Brio Tuscan Grille in Southlake served as a beautiful location for our event.  It was the perfect space, elegantly fit for a queen, or a Bride.

Our Cake Table (before the food made it's appearance..)  Jordan made the most precious 'Bride-to-Be cut out with her Cricket

The cake!  My sweet friend Macy and The Cozy Cakery made this gorgeous (and delicious) cake- perfect with her wedding color theme, complete with a 'D' for Dunaway

 The Bride making the rounds to her guests
 Look at all those presents!!  Most of the guests played along with the theme and adorned Ashley's packages in yellow and slate grey.
 The centerpieces- I'm sad because the pictures do not do justice to how cute they actually were..
 Time for grub!  The shower was at 2pm, so appetizers and mimosas made for great afternoon fare.  Ashley started the line with her plate first :)

Presents!!  So fun-  and its written all over her face.

As a thank-you for hosting Ashley gave the cutest hostess gift- look at these precious aprons!!  Right up my alley, of course :)  Maids from left to right: Lorin, Jenna, Me, MOH Katie, MOH Heather (sorry H..only pic I got!), and Jordan (recently engaged to Jarrett's brother!!)

 What a beautiful day it was at Brio!!  They did an amazing job serving our party of guests and I am so pleased with the way the entire afternoon went.  I'm sad my bridesmaid duties prevented me from taking more pictures of her opening gifts and such- but I was 'man-ing' the trash bag.  Hopefully I can steal some from the other girls more responsible with the picture taking :)

One shower down..another next weekend..and I just recieved the couple's shower invite in the mail- A Martini Masquerade in a couple weeks!  So cute, so fun, so EXCITING! 

Countdown to 4-16-2011..
