We were so lucky to have been surrounded by so much friendship and love around us during the wedding planning. We were given an engagement party and two showers by our close friends an family.
Our first shower was thrown by a wonderfully awesome group of women who are friends of ours that we met through J's father and step-mother. They're a group of life long friends who were very supportive and helpful in our wedding planning and went as far as to throw me a shower. Everyone pitched in with food and drinks and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful Summer evening for a party! There was plenty of bubbly, lots of yummy food, a ton of laughs and fun gifts! It was a blast and I felt so, so blessed to be surrounded by such awesome women.

Our engagement party was thrown by my bestie and matron-of-honor at her home. Our local family and all of our friends were there to celebrate. I can't tell you how incredible it felt to feel so loved and lucky and blessed to be around those we care so much about. It was another awesome night full of laughter and great wine!
