    Bridal Shower

    Two weeks ago I went home to Virginia for my first bridal gown fitting at Hitched Salon (the cutest boutique bridal store ever) in Georgetown and on Saturday my mother and two sisters hosted the most beautiful bridal shower for me!  My two younger sisters and I have always been extremely close our entire lives, which is rare since we are all girls and very close in age.  My sisters are both my Maid’s of Honor and they have gone above and beyond the call of duty.  The bridal shower was just perfect.  My mom and sisters stuck to my weddings colors for the shower: pink, blush and gold.

    Jeremy and I went to Charlottesville, Virginia a few weekends ago to meet a bunch of our wedding vendors.  I had my hair and makeup trial in the morning, then we went to Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards for our wedding menu tasting and last (but not least) we had our cake tasting with Mahlia Creations.  Jeremy and I always knew we wanted to get married at Pippin Hill.  We spent so much time there when Jeremy was completing his MBA at Darden in Charlottesville.  It wasn’t until we got engaged and I wanted to book Pippin Hill for our wedding venue, that I realized how extremely popular Pippin Hill is.  Bride’s Magazine listed Pippin Hill as one of the top 50 most beautiful wedding venues in the U.S.  I mean, obviously I’m a little biased, but I agree with Brides Magazine!  Pippin Hill is absolutely gorgeous.  We got engaged in December 2014 and I booked Pippin Hill in February 2015. By the time I had booked our June 2016 wedding date (only 2 months after we had gotten engaged) we had booked the last Saturday in spring/summer 2016!  I mean that is just insane!  Pippin Hill is not only a breathtaking venue, the food is superb.   Read more
