So being that she is my fake cousin, it was so fun to throw her a bridal shower a few weeks ago to kick off the celebrating. It was my mom's first time hosting in her brand new kitchen (reno was a huge success- looks fantastic!) and my first time co-hosting a bridal shower. I handled invites, decor and set up. My mom handled all the amazing food (Liz's mom Christine made the delish deserts), games, rentals and clean up. It was a success, if I do say so myself, and I had a ton of fun...I mean really, putting me in charge + letting me make everything look pretty = good combo. Some pics from Liz's sister-in-law Mel, the official bridal shower photographer- she did a great job!
Ok anyways, back to the wedding! My mom and I showed up at the house where they held the reception a little early to help set up <-- again me in charge of making things look pretty? Yes please! Only downside? It was like 100 degrees out and by the time we got in our wedding clothes we were both bright red and covered in sweat..suuuuper attractive. Luckily, that doesn't come across so much in the photos.
Then we got down to business- dress shots. We were working on angles to show off how beautiful this dress is...seriously, its a Vera (as in Wang- duh) and so pretty! She also had super cute shoes which I totally want.
smizing so its a pretty legit photo.
Soon enough everyone was ready for the wedding. We all headed down to the bluffs for the ceremony. FYI Pacific Palisades is beautiful! Gorgeous site for a wedding and the planes flying overhead to get water to fight the fires, were kind enough not to fly over head during the ceremony.
After all that eating we worked off a few calories by dancing up a storm. I taught little Cooper how to fist pump Jersey Shore style...although his fist was more of a duck shape...more appropriate for a preschooler. We also got a circle of people showing off their Gangnam style dance moves to the crowd...obviously they were very impressed by our ability to master such an intricate dance ;-). It was quite a night and I crashed as soon as we got back to the hotel. Why? because I had to save my energy to check something off my list...DISNEYLAND!!!
