Yesterday was perfect! I was lucky enough to be surrounded by many of my closest friends to celebrate my upcoming wedding! To be quite honest with you, I wasn’t even planning on having a Bridal Shower. I’ve been so busy with work and Molly and preparing for the actual wedding, that I just didn’t want to have the added stress of planning a Bridal Shower. That’s where Casi Densmore-Koon of cupcakeMAG came in to make my Bridal Shower dreams come true! I’ve known Casi for a little while and she reached out to me and said she would love to plan my shower. She sent me one email to ask me some questions about the guest list and what day I wanted to have the shower and that’s it! She planned the WHOLE thing! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate that I never even had to think about it. Thank you Casi for making this day so special and for handling every little detail. Head over to cupcakeMAG to see MORE photos of the shower.
Let’s talk about this beautiful location! My shower was held at Au Fudge in West Hollywood. It is the CUTEST space ever and their food is just to die for. Every dish they brought out was not only delicious but totally “instagram-able”. I think I had dreams about that avocado toast last night. Ha!
My girl Emma Willis of Contour Fossa KILLED it in the makeup department! I always feel so pretty when she does my makeup. Hair is by me 😉 Can you tell I am happy in the pic below? Ha! I couldn’t stop smiling yesterday!!!
My Bridesmaid Stef drove up from San Diego to spend the weekend with me. Stef is also a mom and it’s been so long since the two of us have been able to let loose and spend time together without the kiddos. So thank you to Kevin and her husband Moses for watching the little ones while us girls had a mommies day/night out! My first one since Molly was born! And I just have to tell you guys how much I adore this woman. She’s not only my best friend in the whole world, but she’s the sweetest and most caring person I know! Stef made me feel so loved this weekend. She made me a special “bridal box” full of goodies for my big day, showered me with love, and even brought some hilarious and silly Bachelorette party games for us to play. I love her with all of my heart!!!
My dearest friend Lisa (below) also flew down from San Francisco for the day to celebrate, which meant so much to me!
And can we talk about this cake?!?! OH MY GOSH – is it not one of the most stunning cakes you’ve ever seen in your LIFE?!?! Au Fudge made this gorgeous cake and all of the desserts at my shower.
Every single thing was so yummy and just beautiful. I made the above photo the background image on my desktop because it’s so gorgeous. Which is also hugely thanks to Ashley Burns! Ashley photographed the entire shower. Isn’t she SO talented? Ashley takes a lot of my blog photos now. Ashley is not only my photographer (yes, I fired Kevin. Ha!) but she has quickly become one of my dear friends! If you need photography, Ashley is one of the absolute best I’ve worked with! She always make me feel so pretty. Love ya girl!
And everything came together beautifully with the flowers by Mulberry and Moss. The colors were just dreamy! I loved them so much that I took a TON home with me! My house looks so pretty right now!
All and all I felt so loved at my shower! My heart is just bursting! The only things missing were Kevin, Molly and Owen (and family that couldn’t make it). But one of the many reasons I am marrying this man is because he insists that I go out and do things for me. He wanted me to have a baby-free day with all of my closet girlfriends and I love him for it! I can’t wait to marry him!

I will never be able to thank you enough for doing all of this and me not having to think about it for one minute!!! xoxoxo
