ince things have finally calmed down a little bit after my wedding, I'm happy to be able to share a few things from it! My bridal shower was thrown for me by my mother and sister in October at one of my favorite restaurants in Marin, Tavern at Lark Creek
. I do a lot of weddings there, and it is the quaintest place with some of the best comfort food, plus their famous butterscotch pudding. I got to pick our our three course menu options for the guests, which was a late brunch. We started with a Greek yogurt fruit and granola parfait, a choice of a country eggs Benedict, a veggie scramble or a Cobb salad, followed with their butterscotch pudding for dessert. Along with perfect mimosa's, it was an amazing meal!
My sister took over everything regarding the planning and went all out to create an "Around The Clock" shower theme. I was so busy in October with the business weddings as well as the finishing touches on ours, that I had to hand it all over. It was hard, but she really paid attention to every single detail. It was so nice to be honored and showered with love by my friends and family. Enjoy these photos by Nicole Paulson
(there are some more images over on her blog
Each guest received a personalized escort card packet that let them know what table they were seated at as well as all the game forms
The invitations gave each guest a time for them to structure their gift around. If they forgot the hand stamped time clock tag my sister included in the invitation, she had more for the guests when they arrived. She thought of everything!
his wedding was so beautiful, and we're so happy to share the feature that is in the new Ceremony Magazine, on shelves now. Lexy & Yates were married at the timeless Flood Mansion, and the design and planning was done by Brittani Waldman. Their photographers were Erin and Dave from Ben Chrisman Photography
, which we will be featuring here soon!
