Showered With Love, Round One!

Yesterday I had my very first bridal shower - Rami's mom's friends came together and threw me a gorgeous luncheon and it could not have been more beautiful!

I wore a white dress from Topshop, my trusty nude Pour La Victoire wedges, borrowed my mom's J.Crew crystal necklace, and got my hair and makeup done too :) #GIRLYGIRL

The party was at a little Italian restaurant called Ca De Sol, in a private room that opened to a beautiful courtyard. Each table was set so beautifully with gorgeous pink and white flowers inside white ceramic vases (that I got to keep!) with little bowls of candy, personalized menus, and the cutest party favors - pink chocolate dipped fortune cookies with a little message inside that said "Rami & Jordan: Lucky in Love!"

Here I am with all the hostesses. Ladies, if you're reading this, THANK YOU AGAIN!!! 

The food was delicious - we had roasted tomato soup drizzled with basil oil, grilled chicken salad with shaved artichokes and parmesan, sage & pumpkin ravioli, and chocolate cake for dessert. YUM!

My sis came in from New York for it! #maidofhonoroftheyear. Would not have been the same without her.

With two of my best friends/bridesmaids - so glad they were there!

How cute is this? The theme was "Recipes for Bridal Bliss" and all the guests submitted their favorite recipe ahead of time - the hostesses compiled them into a beautiful scrapbook. I can't wait to start cooking some of them!

Rami and his dad came for a bit at the end to open presents... Ram loves opening presents. He got very into it, cheering for things he liked/remembered registered for. Such a ham.

Okayyyyy I'm a ham too:

At the end my friend Blair turned all the ribbons and flowers from the gift wrapping into a gorgeous "bouquet" for me to carry down the aisle the day before my wedding during our rehearsal! Wish this wasn't so blurry... I love this picture :)

Not a day goes by that I don't think about how lucky I am... both to have such wonderfully generous family and friends, and to have such an adorable fiance! My shower was so beautiful and I will remember it forever. I have another one coming up in August... I'm so excited to do it all again!
