Ashley's Bridal Shower

Welcome to my niece Ashley's bridal shower

Okay, so I don't know how to use my camera very well yet.
So my daughter in law Erin was the photographer.

She takes excellent photos.
That girl has talent, as you will see below.

First, the food.

Peggy, Suzanne, and I, made the soups.

How do you like the vintage looking napkins?
To me, they look like something from the 1950s!

Erin insisted I show the tacky picture below.
I had to stop the party for a sec so I could remove one of the price tags off my gift.

3 generations below. My sister Peggy. Her daughter Carly. And baby Jude.
I love this picture of my sister in law Suzanne, with Jonas.

Amy and I were discussing some drama.
Looks intense.

The SISTAS with one cousin.

This Friday Ashley and Andrew will be Mr. and Mrs!

Thanks for all the pictures. It looked like fun. I wish I could have been there. I am so happy for Ashley.

jill, I can't wait to sit down with your camera manual!! It was such a lovely day... I wish the pics weren't so much trial and error!

Susan Rozier said...

This looks like such a YUMMY and beautiful occassion.

I was really sorry I had to miss it, but I did enjoy getting together with my 3 girls, 3 granddaughters and 9 month old great-granddaughter, Bryn, in Sacramento.

So, since I did miss it, you have no idea how much I looked forward to this blog so I could enjoy it vicariously. Thanks so much.

And, Ashley, your shower gift will be delivered before the wedding!!!

Love, Susan

Jill said...

Erin, you did a fabulous job of taking pictures even in spite of MY losing the instructions and it being trial and error. If I had taken them, oh my...well, they wouldn't be posted.

Natalie said...

I've had fun catching up on your life this morning. It looks like you've had a wonderful time over the holidays. I love the pictures of you mid-conversation! What WERE you talking about? It does look intense!

Jill said...

It's terrible Natalie but I don't remember. I need to call Amy today and ask her. I think she was telling me something shocking but can't remember what! This is what happens when you are 55 :(

Rebecca said...

Looks like a lovely shower! What camera do you have?

the Rich girl said...

I so wish that we could be there for the wedding!

The bridal shower looks lovely! And the cake turned out beautifully!!

Erin, I love the close-up of of Ashley. To me, it seems like you've captured her happiness--it's beautiful!!

Jill said...

Rebecca, my camera is a Nikon Coolpix L100.

I'm sorry too you couldn't be here Karen...especially since you helped me get ready for it!!

Valerie said...

What a fun looking party! And I love those pictures of your Christmas and of Amy and Logan's family. I don't even know them, but they're awesome shots!

Absolutely gorgeous pictures of this special event!!! I am so very happy for you all and the many opportunities to get to be together. How does everyone fit these gatherings into their busy holiday schedules!?! Your loved ones certainly have a strong commitment to set priorities. An enviable trait.
I FINALLY got to see your new flooring, furniture, etc. The red walls are the BEST!
p.s.....please send me an e-mail so my reply will get to you. I have something for you to see.

Your decorations look even more pretty than you described to me, and the food looked great! Your family always looks like they are having fun.

I'm so sad I missed this! Sometimes living in UT is the pits.

Congratulations to the happy couple! The shower looked fabulous! Nice welcome on the front door with the pretty heart/rose wreath! I loved the food and the decorations, and those napkins! AND that cake!
But mostly I loved the pictures of your family!
Very nice, Jill!
All the best,
