A "Charm"ing Day & Night

This past Friday we kicked Anna's wedding weekend off with a wonderful bridesmaids luncheon hosted by her aunts and grandmother. We got to hear a few sweet words about Anna from her family and then we were presented with our bridesmaids gift and got to dive into the delicious charm cake that her aunts prepared for us...well I dove in anyway.

About to pull our charms! Anna attached special charms representing each of our personalities to a specific color ribbon which was also displayed at our placecard at our tables.

Showing off our monogrammed carry-all baskets that we could use at the church the next day. This was my first thing I received with my new monogram on it; only fitting that it came from Anna, the queen of all things monogrammed!

After a little afternoon pampering at the nail salon we were off to the church for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. I always love this part of weddings because it is so fun to see the bride in groom practicing and trying to remember all of the steps for their wedding ceremony the next day. I am also a sucker for a good rehearsal dinner toast; and Anna and Steven's did not disappoint!

Steven's grooms cake, representing his pride in the Republican Party. Anna's dad, a not-so-Republican jokingly tried to toss it out of the room at one point.

The future Mr. & Mrs. Jones!

Out for just a little while before the big day!
More to come but just wanted to share a few photos! Hope you all had a great weekend and happy honeymooning to Anna and Steven!
