A Celestial Bride

Back in December, my sweet maid of honor, Odessa, and my sweet bridesmaid, Courtney, threw me the most beautiful coffee shop/constellation themed bridal shower! The afternoon was pure magic, and I feel extremely blessed to have been surrounded by my family and friends in celebration of such a special occasion! I'm a bride!

Before I share the photos from my shower, I wanted to share the outfit I wore for the occasion. Courtney made me the most darling crown, and my mom draped it in baby's breath (we made flower crowns during the shower!). Along with the dress I wore for our engagement photos, a little red lipstick, and my favorite booties, I felt like a celestial princess on my special day. The amazing winter light that was filtering in through the leaves didn't hurt the ambience of our post-shower photoshoot either!

So far the new year is off to a smashing start! I've been eating healthy, feeling good, drinking yummy coffee, checking things off of our wedding to-do list, and spending quality time with my family. Today would have been my grandmother's 86th birthday, and while my heart aches, I'm doing the best I can to honor her sweet soul, kind heart, and the amazing women that she will always be.

Outfit Details:
Crown: Handmade
Cardigan: Target
Dress: Madewell
Bracelets: Kate Spade
Tights: We Love Colors
Booties: Sam Edelman 

I'm off to spend more time with my sweet family, sip on more iced coffee, and enjoy this beautiful January day. I'll be a Mrs. in 15 days, and I am truly so excited that our big day is almost here!

What are you up to today? Have any bridal/wedding day advice? I would love to hear your thoughts!
