Recipe shower in Virginia

Here are some pictures from an amazing shower we had in VA that a couple of my mom's friends threw for us Father's Day weekend. We had a great mix of family and friends in attendance. We had a lot of fun and it was so great for a lot of them to finally meet Michael--yes, he came to the shower too :) My dad was there too, but funny enough he volunteered to take the gifts as we opened them to the car and so he wasn't seen much. He CLAIMS he was there to see me open up each gift--but Mom and I aren't too sure about that :)

Practicing cutting the cake for our wedding day :)

Michael and me with the wonderful shower hostesses ("Miss Ginnie" and "Miss Paula")

Some of the many AMAZING gifts we received!!

The yummy spread of food :) Miss Ginnie even matched the miniature roses (from her garden) that were in the center of the cake to colors that reminded her of different aspects of the wedding :)

My sister and me with 2 of our cousins (Ally and Lauren). They will be attendants in the wedding :)

Some of our wonderful friends and family that were there :)

Meredith, I am so glad you and Michael are having so much fun at all your showers! You all registered for some of the cutest things. I love the sugar and creamer. What pattern is that?

Enjoy your week!
