I had the most incredible weekend! My friends threw a bridal shower for me, and it was beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

It was the perfect setting to enjoy all my favorite girls in one room celebrating Chris and I, and showering me with love at such an exciting time in life. It’s a rare feeling, and I’ll never forget how much it meant to me to have them all there celebrating our marriage.
