wedding shower in the mountains

Happy Friday!! I know I said that I would be starting the wedding recaps, butttt there are still a few pre-wedding things I'd like to share first. This is a fun one, too! Back in April the mister and I had our couples shower in his hometown of Sylva, NC. My mother- and sisters-in-law did a fabulous job hosting, and they even hired a professional photographer to capture the day!

The shower was held at Sapphire Mountain Brewing Company, which used to be owned by the mister's great grandmother (she was the first woman to be a licensed dentist in NC).

It was a beautiful shower and a very happy distraction from recent events. Once the festivities started to wind down, the mister and I wandered off with the photographer to get some engagement type photos of just the two of us walking around downtown Sylva. Those are up next!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! We're actually heading to Sylva tonight after work to attend a couples shower tomorrow for one of the mister's cousins. We haven't seen his family since the wedding, so it should be a nice time. See you back here next week! xoxo.
