My Bridal Luncheon

10/30/2013


From the moment my sister-in-law (and bridesmaid) Ryan mentioned throwing me a bridal luncheon I knew it would be one of my favorite parts of my wedding weekend. After a busy morning of hair and makeup trials, greeting family and friends, and last-minute wedding details, it was so fun to sip bellinis and talk excitedly about the wedding with my bridesmaids and family. 

We were so busy drinking said bellinis that we didn't get a close-up of the tables, but they were so lovely. Each place setting had a Minimergency Kit for the big day and Ryan worked with my wedding florist to create some gorgeous arrangements that we repurposed to decorate the honeymoon cottage on wedding day. The patio at Il Fornaio off Ocean in downtown Carmel was the perfect setting and the three-course lunch was delicious.

Thank you again to my sweet sister-in-law!

My dress was For Love & Lemons and was borrowed for the weekend thanks to the lovely ladies at TheStylist LA.
