Luke’s aunts were kind enough to throw me a bridal shower on April 2 in Chicago. My mom flew in from Massachusetts and we had a blast touring around the city with Luke’s Mom and Dad. Check us out at “the bean”:
The shower was tons of fun and included Luke’s family, aunts, cousins and some friends. They certainly showered us with a myriad of gifts. I wanted to do something creative for a thank you card. Since Luke didn’t come along on the trip I thought it would be fun to send custom photo’s with Luke and I, a thank you sign and the gift they gave us. We had a blast going through the list and setting up the shots:
I had all of the pictures printed and then wrote a thank you on the back of each.

I hand-embroidered them each a handkerchief with their monograms. They came out really cute!
And here are the lovely ladies that made it all happen - thank you!!!

Last May, when Luke’s mom Anita and my mom were both in town, we opened the box. It’s a beautiful gown with a delicate lace overlay and long train. The dress fit perfectly but their were a few alterations I wanted to make - turtleneck and long sleeves weren’t going to work for me. Fortunately, my Aunt in Massachusetts owns a tailoring shop and volunteered to help.
I fell in love with the final dress and felt beautiful when I wore it. If I was in a store and saw it, I probably would have purchased the same dress!

Of course we had to do a re-enactment of my parents wedding photo:
