The day started off drizzling which was not a good sign, since all of the chairs had been set up outside, but as soon as people started arriving, the sky got lighter and the precipitation stopped. It was even fairly warm. The guests arrived to tables full of snapdragons and a spread that was delicious: lox and cream cheese sandwiches, pesto pasta salad, cucumber sandwiches, regular salad, and cheese and crackers.
About sixteen friends and family showed up, including my step-grandmother who won't be able to attend the wedding because she can't travel anymore.

There were no games involved, only sipping wine, eating finger foods and chatting away.

After a while, everyone gathered for the opening of the gifts.
My aunt made a ribbon bouquet out of the ribbons from the gifts for my rehearsal
And, finally, the cutest picture of Cowboy Boot Cuz. My parents have a lemon tree and CB Cuz was loving it!
What's funnier is CB Cuz held this face for about five minutes so I could snap a pic!
Where was your shower? Was it a surprise?
