the shower guests.

I am officially the worst blogger ever. I truly thought I had posted these about a week ago but realized today that I was very, very wrong. 

So without further ado, the most special part of Jenn's bridal shower... the people!

Guests arriving and putting finishing touches on the food + lighting the candles. My dad made an AMAZING smoked salmon dish that was a huge hit!

It is safe to say that the older Simar girls are loving having a new little lady in our cousin club. Sarah Jane was a perfect little lady at the shower.

More friends, family and sweet little girls.

The greatest sister, most beautiful bride and a perfect guest of honor.

The girls! So lucky to have these ladies in my life.

Jenn and two very lucky fellas!
The whole group...

I know I said this before, but it was such a joy to plan this shower for Jennifer. The path to a wedding is filled with so much busyness and often stress, so I love that showers give the bride (and sometimes groom) a chance to relax and enjoy the company and support of loved ones. Jenn was the most supportive sister leading up to our wedding.... and, uh, every other event in my life.... so I wanted to return the favor. 

Hope you all enjoyed the recap and pictures!

ps-thanks gain Mom and Dad for all of your help with the party!!
