In our Wedding & Entertaining issue, released last week, I gave you a look into my bridal shower. It was such a special and meaningful event, I couldn’t resist sharing even more photos from the day. With a “blushing bride” color palette in mind, event designer (and dear friend) Kelley Moore added an element of romance to her San Francisco home using soft pinks and ivories. At the party, I opted to debut my new monogram. While tradition states this might be bad luck, I threw caution to the wind and used it to create a unifying and sentimental theme- from signage to glassware. My favorite local bakery even included it on cookies, which were almost too beautiful to eat. Around every corner, there were bountiful bouquets with all my favorite flowers, and guests sipped on signature sparkling wine cocktails. Whether we were laughing over bridal advice, posing in the photo booth, or just enjoying the sunshine- it was an afternoon I’ll always treasure. Of course, a surprise visit from my handsome fiancé, Andrew (flowers in hand!!) was the perfect end to a truly perfect day.

I am so thankful to have had such a spectacular day, and want to extend all of my gratitude to everyone who made my shower possible:
