From Runge to Ricker: Cheers to the Soon to be Mrs. {Pt.13}

Happy Wedding Wednesday loves!
So, I know last week, I said I would share my Bridal Shower Shoot however, this past weekend was my Bachelorette Party and Bridal Shower and I just can not contain my excitement to share all the details with you!

I am going to start off with my Bridal Shower which was hosted at my parents house by my Maid of Honor on Sunday. Y'all, the time, effort, creativity and thought that was put into this is beyond words. Emily, my maid of honor and Hope, John's momma spent hours stalking my pinterest boards picking through the bridal shower related pins and made all of my pinterest dreams become a reality. John was also put to work lettering all of the signs and ordering the food.

If you are from Florida or have a TV with a news channel, you will know that Saturday night/Sunday morning we had a straight up tornado blow through in the middle of the night. It was SO bad..bad to the point that I thought there would be no shower/no one would show. My girls and mother in law kept me calm and assured me it would all be set. On Sunday morning, it drizzled but, by 10am, it turned out to be a gorgeous day!

Anyways, I feel like no matter how hard I try, I can't totally but into words how absolutely freaking beautiful this shower was! So, I am going to let the pictures do the talking!

 I have known all these beauties since I was 8 years old! (except my momma, I have known for always)

Personalized M&M favors

Between the gorgeous decorations, all the signs, the delicious food and the friends and family surrounding me, I felt like I was in a dream. It is funny because originally, I wasn't completely on the Bridal Shower train. I didn't really see the point of it. I am so glad I listened to my mom, Johns mom, and Em and had one.

Honestly, like I said, I am still at a loss of words. I was full of all the happy tears and am just still so shocked and blown away by how freaking perfect this day was! 

Make sure to check back next Wednesday for a recap of my Bachelorette weekend!
