I shared with you all in my March post that my sister, Brittany is getting married! We are now about 2 weeks away! Last month, I traveled up to Connecticut to celebrate with our family and friends at her bridal shower!
Britt decided she wanted her shower at the Wheeler Library. It was originally the secondary school and now houses the public library for North Stonington, CT. I loved reading and spent a lot of time there! I had one of my first paying jobs there and for a while wanted to study library science in college. Honestly, I really love researching and finding information! I did homework after school and discovered my love for nonfiction books on the World War II era. It was fantastic to be back after so many years!
Since we were in a library, the decor had a vintage feel that utilized the books and some other library items – such as a card catalog! As always, my mom, my aunts, grandma and friends did a terrific job with the planning and decorating – spending countless hours working on each detail! Friends and family made tons of beautiful cookies as favors for the guests! We, the bridal party, planned all the games for the afternoon! The whole day was filled with a lot of love, laughter, gifts, and reunions with family and old friends! Read on to see some of my favorites!
