Now that Jenny is married, it’s probably about time that I put up my post from last week’s bridal shower. It seems like my life has been nothing but Jenny’s wedding for the last week or so at least, so I have a few posts in the works about the goings on related to Jen’s wedding. After that, I promise to take it easy on the Jenny obsession… hahaha.
I did make the above invitation from scratch using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I’ve taken all these Illustrator tutorials and I guess I’m getting a bit more comfortable with the software! I can’t tell you how proud I was of myself for drawing this image. Luckily for me, Illustrator is such a fantastic program that you don’t necessarily have to be good at drawing by hand, but through it you can still produce great drawings. I’m excited for all the Illustrator projects to come…
Anyway, back to the point.
My younger sister, Hannah, had the *cough* honor of throwing this little shin-dig. When I say that, I mean I’ve definitely been there before. It’s one of those things that I’ve been happy to do out of loyalty, but also anxiety ridden over its success.
And naturally, Hannah did a great job. 🙂
One of the games in particular gave me quite a laugh. We were each given an envelope with a mystery man inside and whoever got Jenny’s actual groom got the prize. Unfortunately, I didn’t win this one in the “winning the game” sense, but I did walk away with Matt Damon. Ever since his “Bourne” days, I’ve had a thing for that one….
Jen walked away with quite the haul. Between the bridal shower and the wedding presents, I’m pretty sure they’ve got just about everything a newly married couple and first-time-apartment renters could really need. I’m extremely happy for them to have such a nice start.
Probably my favorite moment of the bridal shower was the lovely gift made from the engagement pictures that I took of Jenny and Taylor. It was so cool to see my small contribution being used for something so cute and crafty. It’s a box that when you remove the lid, the sides fall down, each with three cute papers with pictures of the couple on either side. It was such a creative and inspiring project!
Here’s a lovely picture of the Jenny and our friend, Maura. And not that she doesn’t always look fantastic, but on this particular occasion, she was dressed for a wedding later in the day and looked absolutely stunning.
I’m so happy for my sister. 🙂
What a couple of goof balls I have for sisters… Good thing they’re so cute!
