Bridal Shower

Weekend before last, Lauren’s mom and sisters threw Lauren and me a great bridal shower in Rochester Hills, MI. It was a wonderful chance to see family and friends. Personally, I had a great time meeting many of Lauren’s family friends so I can finally put faces to names! Lauren had a blast catching up with everyone from her hometown and getting a chance to share where she grew up with my mom and sister.

Aside from seeing everyone, my favorite part was, of course, the food! We had two different salads that were really great, but the best part was definitely dessert. Lauren’s mom got us a traditional Italian wedding cake from a bakery in the area, and it was very delicious! The favors were very special, too. They were peanut butter bears, an old favorite of Lauren’s (and mine), and they were dressed up for the occasion as brides and grooms. Lauren’s mom made each one by hand! We really appreciated all the hard work that went into the day.

Unwrapping gifts

We also loved all of the wonderful gifts we received! Everyone was so supportive and generous. Lauren and I can’t wait to fill a new home, especially the kitchen, with all of our new things. We are looking forward to putting these gifts to good use. We even have a couple of meals planned out for some of our new kitchenware!

All in all, it was a really great day. Thank you to everyone who helped make it special! We can’t wait for October!

  1. So joyful to be reliving true and “sympatico” love between you and Lauren as only a short year ago Bartow andTiffany were married on June 24th….you both are keeping, love and promise alive and well! Thank you ,dears!

  2. Natalie and I had the wonderful pleasure of attending the bridal shower, and yes, it was quite the experience to watch Dallas help Lauren open the fabulous presents! The peanut butter bears were indeed divine…still have one that found its way back to Santa Barbara! It was a beautiful shower. Clare, Alison, and Amanda outdid themselves! Fun had by all!
