My Surprise Bridal Shower

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, I didn’t get many on my own phone!

Though my Bridal Shower was back in August, and it’s now October, life has been a bit chaotic and this is the first chance I’m getting to share it with you!

If you haven’t already seen the post about my bachelorette party, you can check that out here. Being from the East Coast, and my whole family and bridal party (minus one) being back over there, I flew home to celebrate with everyone there. I did my bachelorette party and my bridal shower in the same weekend, and both were a complete surprise to me!

My sister and Matron of Honor, Julie, planned everything with the other girls and they made sure everything was a surprise. The day of the shower, we got up and got ready, but I had no idea what we were doing. My mom and sister had left the night before to get ready for everything. Two of my bridesmaids, Carolina and Toby, were put in charge of getting me to where we were going.

We went to have breakfast (aka get donuts because I LOVE THEM), and then headed to what they told me was a wine tasting adventure until we were ready to go to the shower.

I was a bit suspicious of this because I don’t really drink, so I thought, “why would they take me wine tasting?”. When we got to the vineyard, my mouth fell open at the view. It was absolutely GORGEOUS!! We were at Breaux Vineyards in Northern Virginia.

When we got there, I saw my moms car which just confirmed my suspicions haha. But what I didn’t expect was everyone that was there! I got to see a ton of my family that I haven’t seen in a long time, and some old friends I also haven’t seen in probably years. It was so, so good to catch up with them.

My mom and sister did an amazing job keeping everything a surprise, and the venue, decor, all of it was just perfect.

It’s so fun to recap now that we’re at the week of my wedding! I can’t believe it’s finally here! EEEK!!

Have a wonderful rest of your week!

XO,

Dani

  • 🥰Our first Valentine’s Day being married was so special! Nothing like getting a beautiful arrangement of roses, right ladies?! Jake had them use pink and lavender roses and lavender sprigs between them to fill it out instead of baby’s breath. It smells so good!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day ❤️
  • Happy Valentine’s Day!! I’m working on a little DIY a project today 😍 can’t wait to be done and see the finished result. And to celebrate ❤️ day with hubby later!

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
