Summer Lovin' Part 1

~Summer Lovin' Soiree: Part One~

Wow! What a weekend!
I cannot believe that something we've been planning for over a year has just come and gone...Seemingly with the snap of our fingers!
Although a bit sad that it is past, we couldn't be happier as it was everything we imagined it would be!

Looking through the pictures now, I am so happy that we decided to host this party. Without it, we would have not had the opportunity to celebrate with our close family & friends. 

Granted, I could have chosen to keep it much more low key...Avoid some of the work & consequent stress...But for anyone who knows me...That's not really my style at all :) And I had such a fun time preparing all the decorations, food, ideas, plans and crafts...If only for that matter, it was worth every second!

I am a little sad that these preparations have now ended, but luckily some of the hand crafted items will get another moment to shine as they embark with us on a journey to Croatia for the wedding!
And as for my time - well there is still plenty to do with getting ready for the big trip, so I assure you, my moment of sadness is only momentary. 

I have a very picture-heavy post of this past weekend's festivities, so I've split it up into two.
Today I will show some pictures from the party and all the wonderful friends and family that attended. Tomorrow, I will be back with a post dedicated to all the decor. 

Here are a few pictures of all the fun!

A truly perfect day in every way :)
