English Tea Bridal Shower

A few months ago my beautiful bridesmaids coordinated an adorably and incredibly aptly themed English Tea Bridal Shower.

Those who have known me for a long time know I adore all the cute english tea cups and rain coats and gorgeous architecture and accents and and and … well its a problem mostly. Anyhow, these girls did their best to create a tea party for me in the middle of July in San Diego.

My sweet friend Tuyen even made this gorgeous “High Tea with the Bride-to-Be” sign I almost died over. Don’t you think she should sell these on etsy?! This sign greeted guests as they walked in.

Directly underneath was an opportunity for people to leave sweet messages, which they did. I was so overwhelmed when I read them at home.

Everything was adorable and sweet!



Really though the photos don’t even do it justice. Everything was so gorgeous, it brought tears to my eyes. IMG_5233

It was simple, but so elegant.

I didn’t get to take as many photos as I would have liked because I just got swept up in the day. One thing I didn’t get a picture of was the absolutely amazing sweet iced tea my friend Melissa made. Peach Bourbon Iced Tea to be exact. It was a great thing to have because July in San Diego is not your typical tea weather! It was made of english breakfast tea, peach nectar, frozen peaches, mint and bourbon. Bomb.com

 And all of the cupcakes were made by my MOH and bestie! How cute are these little roses.

So sweet. I loved every minute of it <333333

The Cream in my Coffee

My honey and I got engaged in November after having been together for almost NINE YEARS! High school sweethearts! I wanted our engagement photos to be fun and unique.

Anyone who knows me, knows there is only one thing I love almost as much as I love Jason and that is COFFEEEE! My life’s motto is “Caffeination is motivation” and yes, you can hashtag that ;).

Well my loving fiancé went along with my theme of love and caffeine and we did our engagement shoot outdoors to incorporate his long for sunshine and scenery. Its styled perfectly to suit us both.

I realized after talking to a friend yesterday, that I never really posted them online or shared them in anyway. I think its time don’t you?!
