I walked in the church fellowship hall and almost couldn't believe my eyes. My dear friends and sisters had transformed it into a darling wonderland of pink cuteness! Was this for real?! My very own bridal shower?
I am continually in awe of the fact that the Lord has so beautifully brought such a godly, sincere, fun-loving, hard-working, handsome man into my life. That he loves me with all his heart. And that I get to be the lucky girl to become his wife. Wow.
And if that alone isn't enough, we have the most incredible, dear family and friends who are rejoicing with us and so generously have showered us with gifts for setting up our home. This past weekend we had two bridal showers -- one with our church family in Omaha, and the other in our hometown community. Such fun! Kori so graciously and skillfully captured lots of pictures to share, so here's a glimpse of the festivities:
The decorating crew
As if that sign in the background isn't completely-adorable enough, they also created a 'Make-Your-Own-Fruit-Pizza' buffet. Delicious!
And speaking of delicious?!!? Enough said!
It was such a treat to have our grandparents join us for the weekend!
[Love you BIGGER!]
Joanna and Charissa had a blast playing together -- as always!
Opening gifts. Seriously, people's generosity is completely humbling and overwhelming. Alan and I talk about how MUCH we have to be thankful for -- so much kindness in helping to set up our new home!
Love how this card was addressed!
I enjoyed that my sisters gathered 'round to watch me open each gift.
My dear friend, Anna, was a marvelous hostess for the evening. She kept us laughing!
"So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture,
Will give You thanks forever;
We will show forth Your praise to all generations."
