As I write this, I can’t believe this weekend is here and gone! It has been a wild couple of months, planning my sister’s bridal shower as busy season has taken off. It was worth every second though, getting to celebrate my sister with so many of our favorite people that we haven’t seen in so long!
Meg is so loved by so many people and that was so evident in the amount of hearts and hands that went into making such a beautiful day possible! To be completely honest, I’m getting a little teary thinking about how much love went into this weekend. I have to start this recap by giving my Aunt Annie and Uncle Jack a huge thank you! They graciously offered to host, and it could not have been more perfect. They worked so hard to prep their house and backyard, literally rented a tent for the occasion, and were the biggest help too in organizing every aspect of the event. I don’t know how they did it all + it couldn’t have been done without them! My parents, aunts, and Meg’s bridesmaids were so helpful with getting decor and food together, and at the last minute, they got everything set up as I got ready upstairs! We had so many friends and family members bring bites to eat, decor, dessert, laughs, hugs, and helping hands to put everything together. (Thank you, everyone! I cannot say how much your help means to both me and Meg!) Everyone worked so hard to pull everything together, and we had so much fun celebrating when all was said and done!
I could go on and on about how much it meant to see so many helping hands bring everything together, but we would be sitting here for a WHILE. I’m so grateful for the hugs we got to share, laughs had, toasts made, and honestly for being able to get together after the last year and a half we’ve had! It was my first time seeing many people in more months than I want to count, and it felt so GOOD to see our world start slipping back to life as we knew it as we celebrated the bride-to-be!
The countdown to the wedding continues, with 116 days ’til Meg and Sean say I Do! Coming up, we have her bachelorette weekend, and before we know it, wedding day will be HERE! I’m treasuring all the time we have to celebrate together this summer. I could go on and on and on about how much fun we had, but we all know it’ll be more fun to recap this in photos! So… what do you say we get started with the biggest photo dump from this weekend?!
Can you believe this tent?! It was perfect! You’ll be seeing these peonies all throughout the recap! My Aunt Annie’s peony bushes bloomed at THE perfect time… and couldn’t have been more gorgeous! They were the PERFECT addition to the decor! This balloon garland was a labor of love… and was absolutely hilarious to assemble. I wasn’t sure it would come together when I saw the shrink-wrapped package with zero directions, but our crew figured it out and had a lot of laughs along the way! One of my sister’s bridesmaids, Zoey, made these letters! How gorgeous?! Summer salads, jar-cuterie, chips and dip… we had a little bit of everything on the menu, and it was all gluten-free! Meg and Sean’s photos from their engagement session with Savannah were a huge staple in the decor! Did I totally forget to photograph the favors day-of? Maybe! Being In the moment and remembering to take photos can be tough! So fun and special to celebrate with all of Meg’s bridesmaids in one place! All the Kramer granddaughters! Most of the Kramer ladies— missing my Aunt Amy! We should have thought to take this photo hours before! We had a few fun games planned! The ring game was a hit! Can you believe Natalie made this bowl the first time she threw pottery?! It is gorgeous! Moved to Baltimore to be closer to these gals! So worth it 💕 AAAAND I had to include this one because Gemma is obsessed with the leftover peonies I got to take home… also shoutout to my letter board that hasn’t been changed in 5.5 months 😂
I didn’t get a “big camera” picture of the guys working so hard behind the scenes, but I’m so glad Meg got a few phone shots of her with our Dad and Uncle Jack! They worked all day long to keep our coolers filled with bubbly!
