The most beautiful bridal shower

On April 28, 2012 Kathleen Selke (my amazing soon to be sister-in-law), fabulous Aunt Cheryl, and wonderful Aunt Eileen hosted my bridal shower at the Selke residence in Playa Vista. Mama Stanley, Whitney, and Noelle used their creative skills to help them decorate and make the home stunning. I did not want a bridal shower because I was so worried that it seemed selfish and that my friends would think it was lame and feel obligated to spend more money on a present. I’d never been to one before but had an idea in my head. I am so happy that they convinced me to have one. It was such a fun day full of love and laughs.

Kathleen did a fantastic job with the decorations. She used our colors of gray and yellow for the DIY decorations. She really captured the vintage rustic feeling we were going for. Aunt Eileen went to the LA flower mart to get the whimsical flowers. They were exactly what I had in mind. Whitney used her photog skills to capture it all.

I couldn’t help but cry when I saw all the hard work that went into making me feel special.

The food was absolutely incredible. Kathleen had a caterer bring in the delicious finger foods. He brought his 2 cute sons to drop off the food. They were so excited to get a cupcake to go. Aunt Cheryl had the cupcakes made by a friend. They were huge and so nummy.

The games were a blast!

I was so thankful for all the generous gifts everybody brought.

Then Aunt Carol read back everything I said while opening gifts as “things I will say to Ryan the night of our wedding”. I was crying with laughter and had a hard time breathing. So I was a bit embarrassed. ha

It was an amazing day and so much fun! I was so grateful to have Ryan’s family and my friends in one place and everyone meshed well and I had zero stress. It was so fantastic!
